First Line Fridays - A Lady in Disguise


Happy Friday!

Continuing with the books I acquired at CFRR this summer, I have had this book on my TBR for awhile now. Every once in a while, I really need a book that keeps me up late and on the edge of my seat. Have you read this book? Do you like a good mystery? 



Hampshire, England
Early April, 1883
I stood, that bleak day, in the graveyard in the village near Winton Park.



As First Line Fridays grows...we have had to make some adjustments to how things are done. So, stay tuned as we make life so much easier for everyone and have fun while we do it!!!
Coming October 6th...

  1. How eerie!

    I'm featuring the first line from J. Rodes' "Charging the Darkness" on my blog today--great conclusion to her dystopian trilogy--but right now I'm going to share the opening of Rachel Dylan's recent release, "Deadly Proof":

    "You can't call that a settlement offer." Kate Sullivan looked directly into the dark eyes of her opposing counsel, who represented a medical device company.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. That's a great opening!

    I'm reading Jaime Jo Wright's The House on Foster Hill. "Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised."

  4. I have that book on my TBR, now to find the time...
    I'm sharing this line:
    How dare the stars still light the night and the James River continue to flow, when the one who made Lettie’s life bearable was gone?
    This is the first line from chapter 1 (not the prologue) of Carrie Fancett Pagels novella “Love’s Escape” in The Captive Brides Collection.

  6. I love Sandra Byrd!! First discovered her when I got my first Kindle years ago and read her French Twist series ebooks & fell in love with her writing. I'm very blessed to be on her street team, and read all the Daughters of Hampshire (more like devoured!).

    My first line is from Kristi Ann Hunter's "An Inconvenient Beauty" (finally got my review copy yesterday):

    Prologue “The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father dies too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.”

    I've been waiting to meet Griffith FOREVER! ;-)
