First Line Fridays


This week I wanted to share the first line from one of my favorite books and films.  
Have a wonderful day friends!  



Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  The Little Mermaid
by Hans Christian Andersen



And the first line is...

"Far out in the ocean, where the water is as blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as clear as crystal, it is very, very deep; so deep, indeed, that no cable could fathom it: many church steeples, piled one upon another, would not reach from the ground beneath to the surface of the water above.  There dwell the Sea King and his subjects."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!   

        Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see                                                                  who else is participating!

The Subject of Malice - Spotlight Book Tour


 

 


The Subject of Malice (A Lila Maclean Academic Mystery) Cozy Mystery 4th in Series Henery Press (July 23, 2019) 

 

The organizers have rustled up plenty of surprises for the literary conference at Tattered Star Ranch. But the murder of an influential scholar wasn’t on the program—someone has clearly taken the theme of Malice in the Mountains to heart. This shocking crime is only the beginning: Other dangers and deceptions are soon revealed.
English professor Lila Maclean has a full agenda: She must convince a press to publish her book (possibly), ace her panel presentations (hopefully), and deal with her nemesis (regrettably).
However, when Detective Lex Archer requests Lila’s academic expertise, she agrees to consult on the case. While her contributions earn high marks from her partner, it could be too late; the killer is already taking aim at the next subject.
As Lila races to keep her colleagues alive, publish or perish takes on new meaning.
