First Line Friday (Week 58): Deadly Undertow

Happy Friday!

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

Deadly Undertow
First Line:
"Cady Matthews listened to the dull sound of her boots hitting the cement beneath her. She tried to pace her steps instead of listening to her instincts and breaking out into a run."

Just released 2 days ago! This is the conclusion to the Lantern Beach Mysteries. I have fallen in love with this series and can't wait to see how things turn out for Cassidy. I picked this up the day it was released, but have to finish a couple books before I will be able to read it. Maybe an incentive to read faster? 

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 love Barritt's books! I shared from The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck on my blog. But here I'll share the first line from the next book in my TBR pile -- A Rebel Heart by Beth White. "Selah could hear the horses thundering closer, oncoming hell and destruction." Happy Friday!

  2. Happy Friday! The book I'm featuring on my blog is "The Country House Courtship" by Linore Rose Burkard. Since I'm still reading this novel, I will share the first line in Chapter Seventeen here. "Mrs. Royleforst finally made her public entrance among the guests after taking breakfast in her room and spending much of the day abed." Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  3. Sounds like you are in for an enjoyable story filled with action and adventure!
    Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Karen Whitemeyer's More Than Meets the Eye. There is also a giveaway running on the Author Interview post with Karen on my blog. Please stop by and enter to win an author autographed print copy!

  4. Can't wait to read this one. I've loved this series so far!

    Here's the first line of The Road to Magnolia Glen by Pam Hillman (I hope to finish this one this weekend):

    The Lady Gallant in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean - January 1792
    "Keep your brother away from my sister!"

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. This sounds like a great read. Adding it to my TBR!

    I'm sharing about "Just Let Go" by Courtney Walsh on my blog today, but I have "The Hawaiian Discovery" by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter waiting for me to read next.

    Middlebury, Indiana

    Ellen Lambright finished sweeping the kitchen floor and paused from her work to brew a cup of tea.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Happy Friday!!!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from As The Tide Comes In by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall. Here I will share the first line from a short story I'm currently reading. It's called "A Lady of Scandal" by Heather B. Moore. It's very good.

    "Hugh couldn't help but think of his biggest question about Anthony and Lady Bridget. Why had Anthony offered to marry her?"

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with good reading time!

  7. I think I would have to listen to my instincts and run! Lol. Happy Friday and happy reading!

  8. It was going to be a fine day. Behold, Here's Poison by Georgette Heyer

  9. Oh, wow! This made my heart beat a bit faster as if I needed to start running myself! I hope you can stop by:


  10. Happy Friday!
    The book I'm sharing this week is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte but I'll share here the book I'm currently reading which is Blind Spot by Dani Pettrey: "Luke crouched behind an orange shipping container, dreading to think what it held. Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  11. Happy Friday! My first line is from Light My Fire by Susan May Warren:

    "His knee had turned into a melon, achy and soft, and Tucker Newman's entire body throbbed, right down to the marrow."

  12. Happy Friday!😊

    My FLF comes from Claiming Her Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe

    If Lucy Maxwell had learned one thing, it was that when life appeared to be going smoothly, it was time to listen closely for the other boot to drop!

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!📚😎

  13. I just finished reading The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck today...

    You see, love stories never worked for her. She never got the guy.

    Happy reading!
