First Line Friday (Week 64): Called to Protect

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Called to Protect by Lynette Eason

Called to Protect
First Line:
(Chapter 1)
"Officer Chloe St. John pulled her SUV to a stop on the
Gervais Street Bridge behind the teeming chaos just ahead."

Lynette Eason has been one of my go to authors for years and this book did not disappoint. This is book 2 of her new series, Blue Justice, and just released Tuesday, July 31. I highly recommend this book to any suspense fans. I shared my review on the blog last weekend, you can click here to read it.
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. Happy Friday! On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

  2. My first line is from Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.

    Ten-year-old Faith Lytton placed her hands on her hips —like Mama did when she was exasperated— and looked at the sad little group of puny troops allotted to her.

    Looking forward to reading Lynette’s new one!

  3. My first line comes from The Trial by Robert Whitlow.

    Truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long.

    Celeste Jamison tossed and turned but couldn't sleep.

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:

    "I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring."

  5. This one's on my August TBR! So many great books this summer, I'm having a hard time keeping up!

    I just started "Nice to Come Home To" by Liz Flaherty. The first line is: Why didn't you ever come back here?

    Happy Friday!

  6. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of Veronica Roth's Carve the Mark on my blog today. Here, though, I'll share the book I've just started to read - A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.

    "Once upon a time, a little girl helplessly watched as liquid gold spun a web across her tiny frame, racing to wrap her up in an icy cocoon."

    I hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend and happy reading! ��

  7. Happy Friday!

    Can't wait to read this book soon!

    I’m reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller right now, so here’s the first line: “It was love at first sight.”

  8. I have seen this book around this past week. I am thinking it needs to go on my TBR, I am an aivid reader of suspense novels. I need to find the first book then read this one. Thanks for showing me another author, as my TBR gets bigger and bigger!

    Here is mine:

  9. Happy Friday!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Auschwitz Lullaby but it's also what I just finished reading so I'll share my favorite quote from the book here: “Sometimes we have to lose everything to find what is most important. When life robs us of what we thought we could not live without and leaves us standing naked before reality, the essential things that had always been invisible take on their true value.” Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. I just purchased this book. Can't wait to read it.

    Over on my blog, I'm showcasing the first line from Carolyn Miller's new novel, Miss Serena's Secret. It's SO good. I'm almost finished with the book, so here I will share the first line of chapter 26.

    "I cannot help you."

    A bit blunt and harsh! Lol.
    I hope you're having an awesome weekend filled with great reading time. 😀❤📚

  11. Adding this to my wishlist right away! I hope you can stop by:
