  1. "Separate yourselves from this assembly, so I can put an end to them at once!" - Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig

    Boy, I'm hooked!

  2. I've yet to hear a bad word about The Lady and the Lionheart - it's on my to-read pile!

    I'm sharing from Ghost Heart by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry over on my blog - it's a medical thriller set in Africa.

    I'm currently reading Freedom's Ring by Heidi Chiavaroli:

    Death's threshold overwhelmed me in a swell of instant silence and intense heat.

    It's a dual timeline story set in 1770's and modern Boston.

  3. I don't think I've had a chance to wish you a happy blogiversary yet, so "Happy blogiversary!" And have a wonderful time at CFRR :-)

    I have the first line from Thomas Locke's "Fault Lines" on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from Candace Calvert's "Disaster Status" from her Mercy Hospital Collection. The Kindle collection with all three books in the series is on sale this month for just $2.99, so I couldn't resist!

    "Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms."

  4. Fantastic line, and truth! Have fun at CFRR, give out some extra hugs for me too! I look forward to seeing all the lovely photos.

  5. Happy blogiversary and have fun at CFRR!

    I've been hearing so many good things about The Lady and the Lionheart. This sounds so intriguing. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I'm sharing about Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren over on my blog today, but I'm currently reading the sequel, Four Winds, so I'll share that here. :)

    "Javier laughed and shook his head as we reached the top of the sand dune, Centinela loping in a wide circle around us. "I do not know if I can court a girl from the future and have a pet wolf," he said in Spanish. "That is a lot to ask of one man."

  6. Have a blast at #CFRR2017!

    Here is my first line:


    In the fourth grade we made little rockets out of old film canisters, baking soda, and vinegar.
    The Isaac Project by Sarah Monzon

  7. Happy Friday! My first line is from The Spinster & the Cowboy by Lena Nelson Dooley:
    "When the sharp rap on his closed office door roused him, Joshua Dillinger raised his gaze from the legal document he had been studying with intense concentration."

  8. Great line! I love the truth wrapped in that--really makes me want to read the book. Adding it to my TBR list.

  9. One of these days, I will read this book!!! :)

    After reading about ten fiction books in the summer, I'm taking a fiction break and reading non-fiction. :) I'm currently reading "Arms and Equipment in the Civil War," which is a super fascinating read that goes in depth with all of the weapons used, tactics used, etc.

  10. I know I’m breaking protocol but I’m still readin the same book! So this is the first line of another chapter.. just to whet your reading appetite:
    “Right… right here.” Peter came to a halt between two massive trees where the undergrowth provided a good screen for anyone hiding.
    A Name Unknown by Roseanna White.
    I need to find more time to read!

  11. Congrats on 3 year anniversary and thanks for the giveaway!
