First Line Friday - Week 22

Happy Friday!!!

Welcome to First Line Friday's now hosted by Hoarding Books. The book I am featuring today was one I have been waiting for and just released Tuesday. It the start of a brand new series for Irene Hannon. I have just begun this book and can't wait to see what happens. PS - Don't you love the cover?

Today's book is: Dangerous Illusions by Irene Hannon

Dangerous Illusions

First line is:
"Hello, Matt. Long time no see."

Now it's your turn!

  1. I’m currently reading An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter, and that’s the book I’m doing on my FLF post today, so here I will post the first line from the novel I’m reading next. The next book on my schedule is Rancher to the Rescue by Barbara Phinney.

    Proud Bend, Colorado, April, 1883

    “Did I read that right?” Clare Walsh peered up from her chair at the Recording Office in Proud Bend, Colorado. She blinked rapidly. “My parents are gone?”

  2. Hmm... That first line could lead either way, depending on whether Matt is pleased to see this person!

    I'm sharing the first line from Lynn Austin's new release 'Where We Belong' on my blog this week, so I'm going to share the first line of the book I just finished here: The Case of the Clobbered Cad by Debra E. Marvin.

    "Heather Munro gazed down Victoria Street so long, she became another gray-suited statue along the Royal Mile."

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Oooh that line is intriguing.

    I'm sharing about "Witness Protection" by Carol Kinsey on the blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from the book I'm currently reading here.

    "All of the stories have been written, including mine."
    Lu. by Beth Troy

  4. Intriguing first line. :)

    I've joined the FLF fun and featured a book on my blog, but I will feature a different one here: After A Fashion by Jen Turano. I haven't started it yet, but it's next on my list of books to read. "Miss Peabody, I do so hate to interrupt your work, but an urgent message has just arrived that requires immediate attention."

    1. I haven't read anything by Jen yet, but do have one of her books as next on my list.

  5. I haven't read anything by this author, but I have seen these books. Looks good! Happy Friday!

  6. That *is* such a cool cover!! She's on my TBR list of authors. ;)

    My first line from "The Colors of Christmas" (Olivia Newport) which I need to read this weekend: "They rode in silence, the murmur of Alex's expensive late-model white SUV lulling Astrid into drowsiness."

  7. Happy Friday!!! My first line is from Mission Undercover by Virginia Vaughan:

    "Blake Michaels pulled into the parking lot of Northshore Medical Center and cut the engine."

  8. I love Irene's books! Here's the first line of the book currently closest to me - "Someone had left the front door open." - Portrait of Vengeance by Carrie Stuart Parks

  9. Thank you for featuring my new release! :)

  10. I have been wanting to read Irene's books! I have one of them lol!

  11. I used to read Irene Hannon's books as soon as they were released, but I got out of the habit. I don't know why. It seems I need to reconsider my habits ...

    I'm sharing from Where We Belong by Lynn Austen on my blog, but I'm currently reading Cardiac Event by Dr. Richard Mabry. Here's the first line:

    Dr. Cliff Hamilton watched the bright green lines of the EKG dance across the monitor screen.

    I'm finding Cardiac Event is perhaps more medical murder mystery than thriller, but there is plenty of suspense and I'm enjoying it. I'll post a full review on my website next week.
