First Line Friday: Secrets at Cedar Cabin

Happy Friday!

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

Today's book is:  Secrets at Cedar Cabin by Colleen Coble
About the Book:
Her mother lied about her identity and her husband wasn’t who she thought he was—can Bailey even trust herself anymore?
Running for her life in the wake of her mother’s murder, Bailey Fleming escapes to the only place she can think of—a remote, dilapidated cabin in Lavender Tides. Intending to finally get to the truth behind the lies of her past, Bailey only finds more questions when bodies are discovered near her cabin hideout along with traces of a dangerous human trafficking ring. In an unlikely partnership with FBI agent Lance Phoenix, Bailey races to understand the mystery surrounding her life and circumstances before the murderer tracks her down.
Meanwhile, Lance is determined to rescue his sister, Ava, who was abducted after running away from home as a teenager. An unexpected lead brings him to the remote cabin, and he wonders if Bailey—with her suspicious past and strange connections to his sister’s case—is really who she claims to be and if she can somehow lead him to Ava.

Do you enjoy books that have action, suspense and romance? If so you need to read this book!
It is the third in the Lavendar Tides series and officially released earlier this week (Tuesday). I had the priviledge of reading an advanced copy and highly recommend it. I was hooked from the moment I met Bailey and did not want to put it down. My full review can be found here.

Now it's your turn!

  2. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first couple of lines from Melanie Dickerson's 9th book for her Hagenheim series "The Warrior Maiden" on my blog. I enjoyed reading that book and will be reviewing it soon.

    Here, though, I will be sharing the first few lines from my current read "Carve the Mark" by Veronica Roth.

    "Hushflowers always bloomed when the night was longest. The whole city celebrated the day the bundle of petals peeled apart into rich red - partly because hushflowers were their nation's lifeblood, and partly, Akos thought, to keep them all from going crazy in the cold."

    Carve the Mark has long been on my TBR and I'm happy that I finally get to read it. I'm enjoying it so far, and I hope you enjoyed those lines as well.

    May your weekend be filled with great books! :D

  3. Ooooo! Colleen's books scare me, lol! They are too good!

  4. My first lines are from When You Look At Me by Pepper Basham:

    Chapter Six:

    The mountains carried thier own song. A melody beginning with soft brass, perhaps a stray violin solo- or even more accurate to the history of these hills- an Irish flute, grew in his thoughts to a full orchestral explosion as vast as the blue horizon.

    Looking forward to Colleen’s new book!

  5. Oh my--this looks scary! Happy reading!

  6. Happy Friday! My first lines come from The Warrior Maiden by Melanie Dickerson:

    "Galloping her horse past the big oak tree, Mulan pulled the bowstring taut. She aimed at the knothole with one eye closed and sent the arrow flying toward the target."

  7. I have this one by on my TBR/wish list! Thanks for sharing it. I'm featuring Emma Rous' The Au Pair if you'd like to stop by! I'm also a blog follower/subscriber.

  8. I want to read this one but need to get caught up in the series first!

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I'm currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I'll share the first line from that book here: "Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  9. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers today, here are the lines that follow:

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  10. I’m currently reading this book. Although I am not very far into it, I am enjoying it.
