First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 102 | West of Famous by Joni M Fisher

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 West of Famous by Joni M Fisher. Here’s the first line:

Martina Ramos opened her eyes in hazy darkness on a cold floor that reeked of vomit and a chemical she couldn't identify.

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

About West of Famous

This contemporary suspense story, set in Florida, features a strong female protagonist facing the issues of identity, mortality, and survival after kidnappers mistake her for a celebrity. The boating community known as Loopers play a key role in the story.

This is the third book in the Compass Crimes series, which is a collection of stories linked by an ensemble cast of characters. Each book can stand alone. Each book features a different heroine and a life-changing crime. The stories are linked by the alliances, friendships, and occupations of the characters common to the stories. While some of the stories contain a romantic subplot, some do not. In the aftermath of each crime, the relationships between these characters grow deeper and stronger.

Honestly, this is not a strong book description, so I’m going to write my own when I publish my review!

  1. It is always fun to visit other blogs and see which books people choose to feature for FLF! This week I’m sharing the first line (and a few bonus lines…I just couldn’t help myself) from The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken.
    Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter 8 of the same book.
    “Nearly all the apple trees along the main drive had bloomed, their pale petals washed by moonlight against the dark sky.”

  2. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m sharing Lord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Kerchersid, which I absolutely loved. Here I will share the first line from chapter 8 in my current read, A Promised Land by Kimberly Grist. “Meriwether’s mouth watered as she pulled the iron skillet from the woodburning stove.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Brett, Billionaire Bodyguard” by Autumn Macarthur & Alexa Verde:

    “Brett Jarvis grimaced, yawned, and snatched up his ringing cell phone. Two a.m. phone calls rarely meant good news, especially in his business.”

    I’m currently reading The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter. I’m on chapter 19 so I’ll share the first line of that chapter. “Sara had just finished waiting on a customer when Brad came into the shop, wide-eyed and with deep furrows lining his forehead.”

    I hope you are enjoying the weekend!

    Hi Iola, That opening line is one you don’t want to read when you’re eating, lol. I’m curious to read on and learn more.

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate.

    Natalie Groves eyed the bag of Gingerbread M&M’s on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions.

  6. On my blog today I’m sharing the first few lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m currently reading Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes so I’ll share the first line from chapter 24 here: “Bess’s words travel with Annie down to the landing.” This book is soo good so far! Hope you have a great weekend!
