First Line Friday (week 50): Dangerous Waters

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Dangerous Waters by Christy Barritt

Dangerous Waters
First Line:
"Today's Goals: None. Just live and treasure the time with the people I'm with.
Maybe collect a seashell or two."

I recently finished this book and now patiently (or not so patiently) await book 5 of the series to be released so that I can find out what is going to happen next. Will things work out the way I want them to for Cassidy?

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 can get behind those goals!!! LOL :)
    The book I'm sharing on my blog is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, but the book I'll share here is the one I am currently reading called Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson: "Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave." Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  2. Well, that sounds like an achievable goal!

    I'm featuring 'No Less Days' by Amanda G. Stevens on my blog today, but right now I'm reading 'Presumption and Partiality' by Rebekah Jones--a Pride & Prejudice retelling set in 1930s Arizona!

    The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932.

    Have a great weekend :-)

  3. From the cover, I have a feeling she's not going to get her goal. :-)

    I'm featuring As Bright as Heaven on my blog today, but I'll share the first line from another on my TBR pile here, Quo Vadis: "Petronius woke only about midday, and as usual greatly wearied."

  4. I am loving this series! Can't wait for May's book!

    My TBR pile includes The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck. The first line: "Life is filled with irony."

  5. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Becky Wade's Falling for You. I'll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed "Amongst the Roses" by Meghan M. Gorecki
    "Papa's Home!" A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant's spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist."

  6. Those are good goals to work towards! I'm curious at how that novel goes though.

    I'm featuring "Beneath a Prairie Moon" by Kim Vogel Sawyer on the blog today, but I'm going to share about the book I'm currently reading called "The Story Peddler" by Lindsay A. Franklin.

    Colored ribbons of light poured from my fingers. One strand broke free and soared above the crowd's head, glowing golden in the afternoon sun.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading! :)

  7. I really like those goals!

    Happy Friday!!!! I'm so excited for the weekend.

    I'm sharing the first line from The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd over on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from a YA novel I teach to my 9th Honors English students -- Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin,

    "The end came quickly, and there wasn't any pain."

  8. That line sounds quite deceptive...

  9. I love that line!! Today is an important anniversary for me and that line totally connects with my celebration. :) Thanks for sharing! Happy Friday!

  10. Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton's Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:

    "As a vicar's daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so."

  11. Those sound like achievable goals - I like this lady!

    Over on my blog I'm sharing from Where Hope Begins by Catherine West ... which I finished about four hours after starting it.

    I'm now reading A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden. Here's the first line of the Prologue:

    "You and your brother are to go to the music room, close the door, and don't come out until I say you can."

    Have a great weekend!

  12. I like that! I’m sharing from my current read, The Backcountry Brides Romance Collection from Barbour Books, on my blog today. So here is the first line from the prologue of a book I plan to read soon, The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron:

    “Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”

    Have a great weekend!
