First Line Friday (Week 82): Mind Games

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.

Today's book is:  Mind Games by Nancy Mehl
Mind Games
First Line :
(Chapter 1)
"As she poured the sparkling red claret into the serial killer's glass,
she wondered if it reminded him of blood."

This week has been crazy busy and I am a bit behind on my reading schedule (yes I have one). This book has been on my reading list for a while and finally I have started it. While I am only a couple chapters in, I have a feeling story is going to be creapy.  But I am looking forward to a suspensful read. I enjoy books that I can dive right into and divert my attention from my real life. This is a new to me author and I look forward to seeing how this story unfolds.

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. That first line sounds quite intriguing.

    I posted my first line from Jacob’s Bell by John Snyder, on my blog. I am also reading Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie by Tyler-Addison Colins for a blog tour. The couple of lines are: “Oopsy.” “That would be an understatement.” The three of us peered down at the slim, twisted, bloodied body of a previously pretty woman.

    I have just started this one, so am not sure yet what I think.

  2. My first line comes from The Fashion Designer by Nancy Moser...

    Late August 1912
    New York City

    Annie Culver tidied her work table for the last time.

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I have just been introduced to author Stacey Weeks, and am excited to start reading her book "Mistletoe Melody". Here is the first line:


  5. Mind Games is next in my reading queue.

    My first lines come from a long anticipated read -- Searching for You by Jody Hedlund. "Sophie Neumann nuzzled her nose against Danny's chest. His arms tightened around her possessively. 'You're my girl now. A Bowery Girl.'"

    Happy Friday!

  6. Sounds like a good book, and that's just the first line.

    I am showcasing the book `Shadows of Deception` (Ashley Dawn) on my blog,

    So here I'll put the first line of a non-fiction book I am reading.

    Next Level Thinking (Joel Osteen)

    So often we let our environment, how we were raised, and other people's expectations of us set the limits for our life.

  7. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth………

    I am folding laundry at my dining room table when the police car pulls up. There’s no fanfare— no sirens or flashing lights— yet that little niggle starts in the pit of my stomach, Mother Nature’s warning that all is not well.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm! Happy reading!😊📚💕

  8. I just finished reading that one last night! Definitely looking into reading more by the author :)

    This week on my blog I'm sharing from I know the Plans by Melissa Wardwell but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from chapter 8 where I'm currently at: "So how are things going?" Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. I can't wait to read this book!!!

    Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first couple of lines from Silent Days, Holy Night by Phyllis Clark Nichols. I'm just starting chapter 2 now, so I'll post the first lines from there.

    "'Since I can't go to Grancie's today, could I go tomorrow?' I didn't think Dad was looking, so I took another sugar cube and stirred it into my tea."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

  10. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from Georgette Heyer's Envious Casca on my blog today, but here's the first line from the next Heyer book I'll be reading, Why Shoot a Butler?:

    "The signpost was unhelpful."

  11. I am about to start Searching for You by Jody Hedlund.

    New York City, September 1859

    Sophie Neumann nuzzled her nose against Danny’s chest.
    His arms tightened around her possessively. “ You’re my girl now. A Bowrey Girl.”

    Next one is Mind Games!
