First Line Fridays

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  The Tea Shoppe Mysteries
by Darlene Franklin, Cynthia Hickey, 
Linda Baten Johnson, and Teresa Ives Lily

And the first line is...

"Petit Fours to Die For"
by Teresa Ives Lily  

"I tied the pink-, green-, and yellow-striped apron around my waist, covering my blue jeans and the solid pink polo shirt that was part of my uniform."  

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! 



  1. That sounds delicious! Here is my post:

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Lacewood" by Jessica James:

    " "Recalculating." Katie McCain smacked the steering wheel with both hands and then glared at the navigation screen."

  3. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from Of Sword and Shadow by A. L. Sowards. "I don't remember the name my mother gave me. Nor can I recall each of the hundreds of names I've used since."

  4. My first line is from A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deibel.
    Boston. October 1920
    The grandfather clock downstairs chimed the hour, its clangs all too reminiscent of the funeral bells presiding over Mother’s funeral just yesterday morning.
