First Line Fridays (Week 49): Oath of Honor

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason

Oath of Honor
"On my honor I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust."

Today we are featuring a book that my co-blogger is going to be reading next. She gave me the opportunity to choose her next read, but did narrow it down to only two options for me to choose from. I decided on Oath of Honor because she I felt she needed to dig into a mystery after reading a bunch of contemporary romance stories. I read this when it first released and can't wait for book 2, so I will be interested to find out if she enjoys it. My review can be found here.

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. What a unique first line! It draws you in, like the cover.

    I'm sharing the first line of The Man He Never Was by James L Rubart on my blog.

    I'm currently reading The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon, a modern marriage of convenience story based on the Book of Esther. Here's the first line of the Prologue:

    Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest.

  2. Last November I had a nightmare. - The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

    Happy Friday!

  3. This sounds really interesting - but I think you should've had more than 2 books to choose from - LOL. :-)
    Right now, I'm reading The Cottage by Michael Phillips. Here's the first line:
    "The letter two weeks before had been brief. Less than half a page. Yet in an instant it had turned her life upside down."

    1. I tried to convince her to give me more choices, but I didn't win.

  4. This sounds like quite the fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat kind of story! Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I really liked Oath of Honor! Hope you are enjoying it, too.

    Happy Friday!

    Today over at my blog, I am sharing the first line from the novel An Improper Proposal by Davalynn Spencer. Here, I will share the first line from Janet Ferguson's novel Leaving Oxford.

    "Baby steps. Sarah Beth LeClair forced one foot in front of the other and willed herself to soak in the new life bursting around her on the University of Mississippi campus."

  6. Honorable first line! Love it! Happy Friday!

  7. Happy Friday!
    I have that book on my TBR list too :)
    The book I'm sharing on my blog is The Butterfly and the Violin, but I'll share here what I'm currently reading- All Things New by Lynn Austin: "Josephine Weatherly thought she'd already lived through the darkest hour of this endless war, but she had been wrong." Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. I'm sharing from Where the Fire Falls on my blog today but I'm currently reading The Backcountry Brides Collection, so here is the first line from the first novella, Shenandoah Hearts by Carrie Fancett Pagels:

    Philadelphia 1753
    "Ladysmith, you have a gentleman caller--maybe two." The voice of her employer, Jacob Owens, held a slight tease.

    Happy Friday!
