First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 11/30/18

Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:


Unless you get one of those miracles they're always talking about in church, I don't see how you'll be able to keep the business open into spring.
Page 56

"Miller and Miller were pretty miffed to have the case pulled from them, that's for sure."

They were younger, new detectives who wanted to make names for themselves.  But they played by the book.

  1. Sounds like a fun story! I hope you are enjoying it. This week I am featuring Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox by Forthright - an intriguing new fantasy. Happy reading!

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall. I’m very excited to get into that book. Because I am just starting this novel, I will post the first two lines from chapter 2.

    “Captain’s orders. You and Mrs. Keate stay here until it’s safe.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fantastic reading time! πŸ˜ƒ❤️πŸ“š

  3. I am due for a good mystery. hope you enjoy this one. My Friday Quotes

  4. I'm quite intrigued!! Happy weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!πŸ‘

    My first lines come from The Patient One by Shelley Shepard Gray.......

    “Thank you for coming. I’m so glad you could make it,” Mrs. Warner said as she clasped Katie Steury’s hand between her own. “Andy . . . well, Andy would have been pleased to see you here.”

    Have a very relaxing weekend and happy reading!😊

  6. Wow that's some awesome cover art!
    On my blog this week I'm sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I'm currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I'll share the first line of my current chapter (there's no chapter #s) here: "Do her eyes accuse you?" Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  7. I really liked that book. My first line comes from yesterday's book mail -- Dead Sea Rising by Jerry Jenkins. "'It's your mother,' Nicole Berman's father said over the phone."

  8. I'm curious to know more the story. Susan is wrapping up the month with a nonfiction book at Girl Who Reads

  9. Happy Friday, and thanks for joining First Line Friday!

    I’m featuring the first line from Carolyn Miller’s latest release, The Making of Mrs Hale, over on my blog today, but at the moment I’m reading Jerusalem’s Queen by Angela Hunt:

    “They are all here, gathered like vultures around my bed, watching with long faces and occasionally bending near to listen for my breathing.”

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Everything about this appeals to me. The excerpt, the cover and the title!

    My Friday 56 from Holly In Hiding

  11. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Looking Glass Lies" by Varina Denman:

    "I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again."

  12. Definitely sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing! Here's mine: “I’VE GOT MY EYES ON YOU”

  13. I'd read a bit more and then decide whether to continue.
