I have been mixing up authors, again. I recommend the Mattie Winston series and I have been attributing it to Annette Dashofy. My apologies to both authors and those I recommend it to.

I’m surprised by how much the inside of a dead body smells like the inside of a live one. I expected something a little more tainted, like the difference between a freshly ground hamburger and that gray, one-day-away-from-the-Dumpster stuff you get in the discount section at the grocery store.

  1. Hahaha… your review certainly helps to explain that opening line. It is quite different.

  2. Becky says:

    This looks like an interesting read.

    I’m sharing about The Melody of the Soul by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but I’ll share a first line from a book on my soon-to-read list here.

    Your first thought upon picking up this book is probably: How can a person born without any limbs consider himself to to be the hands and feet of Jesus on this Earth?
    -Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children by Nick Vujicic

    Have a great weekend!

    I don’t read a lot of cozy mysteries but do enjoy them when I set in on one!
    The snow in middle Tennessee melted enough that my mailman finally showed up with a few packages in hand (a few of the books I’ve been waiting on). I pulled the first line to share from one of those:

    Her head throbbed and grogginess gripped her.
    –Thread of Revenge by Elizabeth Goddard

    • Your lines certainly caught my attention. We are getting rain again and it will be cooler today instead of in the high fifties like last couple of days. Thanks for the visit and comment.

  4. The book I’m sharing on my blog this week is Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy. I will share here the first line from a children’s book I just finished reading by A. Lynn Basset called The Boy and The Clock Book. “Tick-tock, tick-tock. Only three minutes stood between Charlie Higgins and the best summer ever!” Have a great weekend!

  5. lelandandbecky says:

    Oh, that makes me shudder! Happy Friday! My first line is from Callum’s Compass by Sara L. Foust:

    “A persistent knock at the front door dragged Kat Williams awake.”

  6. Carrie says:

    ewwwwww…. LOL

    My current first line is from The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright –

    “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.”

    PROLOGUE

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog, I am featuring Brett Armstrong’s novel Destitutio Quod Remissio. It’s an interesting read so far. Here I will post the first lines from chapter four of this book.

    “The streets were filled beyond the usual that day, or perhaps it only appeared so to Marcus. The market district was expansive enough to accommodate thousands. Over it looked the tall stone buildings surrounding the huge open Forum that was the city’s center for centuries. All of the grand structures were washed white by the noon’s radiance and loomed large over the transactions of Rome’s citizens.”
