First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 77 | Beauty in Flight by Robin Patchen

It’s First Line Friday! That means it’s time to pick up the nearest book and quote the first line. Today I’m sharing from Beauty in Flight by Robin Patchen:

Quote from Beauty in Flight by Robin Patchen: Two years out should have been enough. Harper Cloud was free. Except she didn't believe it.

 

What’s the book nearest you, and what’s the first line?

About Beauty in Flight

Her beauty once opened doors, but the felony conviction slams them shut.

Harper Cloud used to love the gilded glamour of Las Vegas, but on the far side of prison, she sees the cracks in the veneer. These days, she keeps her head down and focuses on the elderly patients in her care. Even her new wealthy east-coast boyfriend, Derrick, can’t entice her away. She’s trusted men before, and look where that got her.

She tries to brush off the feeling that she’s being watched. But when she’s followed home one night and her pursuer gets within a hair’s breadth of grabbing her, she knows it’s time to get away from Las Vegas.

Maybe Derrick can be trusted. Maybe his job offer—to care for his aging grandfather in Maryland—will be the second chance she needs.

But Derrick has secrets of his own, secrets that could take him down–and take Harper with him.

Can there be a second chance for someone like her?

  1. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first couple of lines from Melanie Dickerson’s 9th book for her Hagenheim series “The Warrior Maiden” on my blog. I enjoyed reading that book and will be reviewing it soon.

    Here, though, I will be sharing the first few lines from my current read “Carve the Mark” by Veronica Roth.

    “Hushflowers always bloomed when the night was longest. The whole city celebrated the day the bundle of petals peeled apart into rich red – partly because hushflowers were their nation’s lifeblood, and partly, Akos thought, to keep them all from going crazy in the cold.”

    Carve the Mark has long been on my TBR and I’m happy that I finally get to read it. I’m enjoying it so far, and I hope you enjoyed those lines as well.

    May your weekend be filled with great books! 😀

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Yesterday’s Promises” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Danica Callaghan sank down on the lowest of the wide, built-in, carpeted risers and surveyed her handiwork.”

  3. Paula Shreckhise says:

    My first lines are from When You Look At Me by Pepper Basham:

    Chapter Six:

    The mountains carried thier own song. A melody beginning with soft brass, perhaps a stray violin solo- or even more accurate to the history of these hills- an Irish flute, grew in his thoughts to a full orchestral explosion as vast as the blue horizon.

    Robin’s book looks really good!

  4. Happy Friday! On my blog, I am featuring a book by J. Stephen Lang, The Christian History Devotional. Here, will share a couple lines from the chapter I’m currently on. “1731: One of the world’s most famous books happens to be a Christian book, though most people think of it as an adventure story. It is Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, published in 1719.” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  5. I’ll be reading this series soon! Looks like an awesome read! 🙂

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I’m currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers today, here are the lines that follow:

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    Hope you have a good weekend.
