First Line Fridays (Week 43): Justice


Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
 
Today's book is: Justice by Emiy Conrad

Justice
First line:
"Snow floated onto Main Street, each flake large enough to catch the breeze like a parachute"


This book has just released today. I have not started it yet, but the back cover description intriques me so I am looking forward to starting it as soon as I finish my current read. After reading the first line it seemed approriate to share it today because after two weeks of great weather with no snow, it started snowing yesterday and is still snowing. Was spring just teasing me?

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over
to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. I enjoyed this one. And I still need to do my review!

    I'm featuring the long-awaited conclusion to Ronie Kendig's fantasy series this week: Fierian. However here, I'll share the first line from Tammy L. Gray's new release, Until I Knew Myself:

    "Even after his mom passed away, Tyler refused to call himself an orphan."

    Have a great weekend! :-)

    1. I just got Beneath the Surface this week and I haven't heard of the other book you mentioned. Sounds like a sad start though.

  6. I have the same first line on my blog today! I am in love with this book. It's a hard subject to write about, but she has done a beautiful job with it :) And Jake, the hero, yeah.....check back with me after you've read it!

    I'll share the first line from Jessica Patch's new release, Secret Service Setup.

  8. I keep seeing this one - It looks interesting!
    Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line of a wonderful new book about the Maccabees, Judah's Wife, but here I'll share the first line of the nonfiction book I'm reading now, Our Unmet Needs by Charles Stanley: "Do you have a nagging, gnawing feeling that something isn't quite right in your life? Do you feel overwhelmed by a need you can't meet, a problem you can't solve, or a question you can't answer? Are you able to identify the real need that underlies your feelings of uneasiness, fear, worry, or restlessness?"

  10. Happy Friday! I always love seeing what everyone is reading when I get to stop by! My first line is from A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green:

    “Propping open the door to her shop, Vivienne Rivard listened to a distant rumble that vibrated the windows and shivered in her chest.”

    1. I add way too many books to my TBR after visiting the Friday posts, but that's not going to stop me from visiting :)

  11. Happy Friday! On my blog, I'm featuring The Healer by Beverly Joy Roberts. It's an amazing fiction that moved me deeply. I hope you will take the time to check it out. Here, I will share the first line from a book by C.H. Spurgeon that I'm currently reading. "'Thou has visited me in the night.' --Psalm 18:3. 'Tis a theme for wonder that the glorious God should visit sinful man." Wishing you a blessed weekend.

    Nolan Price scanned the fields of newly budding greenery that stretched as far as he could see and slowly inhaled the scent of grass, soil, and freshly spread manure.

  15. I love that first line! Can't wait to read that book!

    My current first line is from Robin E. Mason's The Silent Song of Winter: "The sounds of the swamp in winter would scare another person but not me. I grew up here."

  16. That first line creates quite the visual.

    Over on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Michelle Griep’s The Innkeeper’s Daughter which I will review soon. Here, I will share one of my favorite lines from that book: “It might’ve been a cozy inn at some point, but now the walls leaned in toward the soot-blackened ceiling, giving the impression the entire building wanted to lie down and rest.”

  17. Thank you so much for featuring Justice! The fun part of that first line is that first scene happens on March 1st :) Your weather sounds a lot like ours. We just got some snow earlier this week after a relatively warm February, but I'm longing for spring! As are the characters in Justice :)

    Oh, and first lines. I'm reading Julie Lessmans's Isle of Hope:Unfailing Love, and the first line is: "When it comes to burning bridges, I am the Queen of Kerosene." Thanks again for featuring Justice!
