First Line Friday - Week 34

Happy New Year!!!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren

Troubled Waters

First line is:
"Oh this was a bad idea. Epically, abysmally, horrendously bad."

Ms. Warren definitely knows how to engage readers right from the beginning. What a engaging first two lines. I am so excited to read this book, it offically releases Tuesday, Jan. 2. I've been waiting for the continuation of Ian and Sierra's story ever since I first read the prologue to this series this time last year.

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! Over on my blog today I’m sharing the first line from My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York by Amanda Barratt. It is scheduled to release on Jan. 1st! I’ll share with you here a book I’m currently reading – Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky
    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Happy New Year!

  2. Ooooohhh!! I can hardly wait until Susie's book is released!!!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Would-be Mistletoe Wife by Christine Johnson.

    “Louise Smythe spotted her quarry and motioned her students to follow her across the sand dune.”

    This is a fun & interesting read about lighthouses and the Chicago Fire! Happy New Year!!!

  3. OH.MY! This series is on my MUST read list.


    "WHO ARE YOU?" I asked. - The Book of Mysteries by Jonathan Cahn

    Happy New Year!

  4. Great first line! Pulls you right in. The book I'm featuring this week is A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Witemeyer, who I always enjoy. This is part of an enjoyable Archer Brothers series. Happy New Year!

    1. I just discovered Karen Witemeyer earlier this year and can't wait to read more of her books.

  5. Have a Prosperous 2018. Your books sounds enjoyable. My lines come from a book being released January 1. The Duke is upset that miles have invaded his lawn.

  6. Looks like a good read! My first line is from Patricia Beal's A Season to Dance (actually 3 lines, but who's counting?): This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Happy Friday!!!

    I'm sharing the first line from Nicole Deese's novel, A Season to Love, on my blog. I'm just starting chapter 23, so I will share the first line from this chapter here:

    "I dreamed of coffee: dark and rich and boldly brewed."

    A great dream to me!!! Hope you have a great weekend, and a happy New Year. 😊
