I just got Marilyn Griffith's latest novel, Rhythms of Grace, and I can't wait to dive in. (BTW, the cover is gorgeous and sexy and it intrigues me.)
Her first line: No one would miss me.
My reaction: Oh, no! What's going to happen? Why would no one miss her?
Lisa Samson's Straight Up: Why are wine velvet curtains, soft carpets, and mellow lighting reserved for the dead?
My reaction: Why indeed? And where is this story going?
Donita K. Paul's DragonQuest: "We're going to get in trouble," Kale muttered.
My reaction: What? Why? What's going on? Why is poor Kale muttering?
I (finally) just bought Healing Stones by Nancy Rue & Stephen Arterburn. My friends have raved about this book, and I can't wait to read it.
The first line: I sneaked down to the boat that night to say this couldn't happen anymore.
My reaction: Oh, my goodness! Why did she have to sneak? To whom was she speaking? What couldn't happen any more??
So, tell me, what are some of your favorite first lines? Let's get some chatter going in the comments. I know you have an opinion.
Oh, one more--my absolute favorite first line: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
