First Line Friday - A Name Unknown (Link to Giveaway)


Happy Friday!

Saying that I am excited about Roseanna M. White's new series is an understatement of EPIC proportions! I simply adored her last series (Ladies of the Manor...Read my reviews HERE.) And after reading this first line, I hope you head over and pick up your copy of A Name Unknown right away! And if THAT doesn't convince you, you can read my review HERE (Link to a giveaway as well). EEEEEP! 



London
May 1914
Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. Pulling her coat more tightly around her middle, she stopped in one circle of streetlight outside the park and looked toward the next.

    I'm featuring a new release by Bethany Kaczmarek on my blog this week, but I'm going to post the first line from a book I've been meaning to read for aaaaaages: To Whisper Her Name, by Tamera Alexander.

    "First Lieutenant Ridley Adam Cooper peered through the stand of bristled pines, his presence cloaked by dusk, his Winchester cocked and ready."

  4. I'm about 300 pages into A Name Unknown. Amazing book and I loved that first line.

    I'm sharing a first line from The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson. "The change in Marie Carrington's pocket wouldn't pay for a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait to Prince Edward Island, let alone a bus ticket to anywhere else in the world."

  14. This is next on my to-read pile. I love Roseanna's books.

    I'm currently reading Ghost Heart by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry. The first line is:

    According to legend, their kind could never die.

    Lots of suspense. Glad I haven't had a manicure recently, because I think I'd ruin it!
