First Line Friday - Week 3

Happy Friday! This week I am in the middle of a book that releases in just a little over a week's time (June 6th).  I've never read this author before and really enjoying it so far. I'll share all my thoughts once I've finished it.

Today's book is: More Than A Soldier by Irene Onorato

"Hank Fleming peeled off his cold, wet t-shirt and tossed it aside in the dark."

Hmm… where is he? Why is his shirt cold and wet? You'll have to pick it up to find out. Winking smile 

Now it's your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Then join in more First Line fun by visiting these blogs:


  1. My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

  2. Ah! Another military theme! I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger's upcoming release on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from 'Nightshade' by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

    “Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh, such a tease! ;)
    You have gained my interest!

  4. Sounds like a sweet read!

    This week, I'm trying to put some reading time into "The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman" (for research) and "Threads of Suspicion (by Dee Henderson--my first of hers to read).

  5. Happy Friday!! Sounds good! I will check out that author.
    My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: “The dream started the way Jennifer’s actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten.”

  6. Happy Memorial Day Weekend! That is quite a line!

  7. Happy reading! My current read is...
    The euphoria of winning a hard case vied in her thoughts with wondering what came next as Haden McCarthy left the Alexandria courthouse.

    Beyond Justice by Cara Putman

  8. This one looks really good! Thanks for sharing!

  9. From the prologue of Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection
    Kansas, 1865
    Abigail Melton entered the kitchen to the sight of her mother slumped over the table, a telegram clutched in one hand.

    The fictional town of Turtle Springs lost almost all their men to the Civil War.

  10. Man, sounds interesting!

    Here's mine from a book I just finished reading: Count Me in by Mikal Dawn.

    "The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer's neck stood at attention."

  11. So many questions! I want to know what happens next. :) Happy Saturday!
