Sunday Special…

Okay, so I thought we’d have a little fun today…

I have done this before and thought I’d go ahead and do it again here. 
As I mentioned the first time I did this, I love first lines of books.  The right first line can really hook a reader and make him or her want to know more.

So I thought I would ask:
What is the first line of the book you are currently reading?

Remember to tell us the author and title so we can give credit to the author because all lines are copyright of the authors who wrote them!

I’ll start…here is the first line of the book I am reading today:

“As assignments went, this one was odd.” – Riding Wild by Jaci Burton

    Not reading at the moment. Am writing my fingers into nubs. But the first line of the one I am working on is: ““Exactly how does one lose her voice on her wedding holiday?” Miss Marie Cunningham asked gamely.”

    Enh. It’s a rough draft but you get the idea.
