First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 1/25/19

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


There was something about the smell of a prison that made me feel an almost overwhelming urge to run.


 Page 56

Also linking up to:


  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Yesterday's Promises" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Danica Callaghan sank down on the lowest of the wide, built-in, carpeted risers and surveyed her handiwork."

  2. I've not read any of Nancy's books yet and I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to do so, she might be too good at what she does for my tastes ;)

  3. Sounds very intriguing!! Happy weekend!

  4. This sounds like a good story. This week I am spotlighting Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch as I try to finish a series I just discovered. Happy reading!

  5. Happy Friday! My first lines come from The Warrior Maiden by Melanie Dickerson:

    "Galloping her horse past the big oak tree, Mulan pulled the bowstring taut. She aimed at the knothole with one eye closed and sent the arrow flying toward the target."

  6. I haven't read anything by this author. That being said, I like the 56 and beginning.

  7. I love Nancy Mehl's work! Thanks for sharing this one. I'm featuring Emma Rous' The Au Pair if you'd like to stop by! I'm also a blog follower/subscriber.

  8. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers today, here are the lines that follow:

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  9. Oooh might have to check this series out!

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I'm currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I'll share the first line from that book here: "Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  10. Pretty sure prisons would do the same for me. LOL I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine.
