  3. That first line made the hairs on the back of MY neck stand to attention! Can't wait to read it!

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh's 'The Vexing' on my blog today, but I'm going to leave you with the first line from 'Still Falling' by Crystal Walton, releasing on 17th May:

    "On his way to their squad car, NYPD Officer Josh D'Angelo fanned away a sense of dread rising with the steam coming through the subway grates."

    Happy Friday :-)

  5. On my blog today I'm sharing a line from Pepper Basham's book The Thorn Healer. I wanted to share something different in the comment, so I'm choosing a book that my son is currently reading. "As soon as she heard the first pop, pop, pop of the distant muskets, the young mother extinguished the morning fire and closed and barred the cabins shutter." Abandoned on the Wild Frontier (The Trailblazer books) by: Dave & Neta Jackson Bethany House, 1995
