Rose Madsen couldn’t risk staying out much longer. She still felt the paddle blows—what her mother called “appropriate corrective measures”—from the last time she’d disappeared for too long.

  1. Okaay, I’m currently reading World Without End by Ken Follett and the first sentence is…”Gwenda was eight years old, but she was not afraid of the dark.” i’m around 60% into the book and I am loving it!

  3. I’ve joined the FLF fun and featured a book on my blog, but I will feature a different one here: After A Fashion by Jen Turano. I haven’t started it yet, but it’s next on my list of books to read. “Miss Peabody, I do so hate to interrupt your work, but an urgent message has just arrived that requires immediate attention.”

  6. My current book, Dingoes Don’t Bark” is one I read some years ago. It was published in 1975 but I am re-reading as part of my research for the biography I am currently writing. The first line is “For a while that day I wondered whether he was going to answer me at all”.

  7. I’m currently reading An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter, and that’s the book I’m doing on my FLF post today, so here I will post the first line from the novel I’m reading next. The next book on my schedule is Rancher to the Rescue by Barbara Phinney.

    Proud Bend, Colorado, April, 1883

    “Did I read that right?” Clare Walsh peered up from her chair at the Recording Office in Proud Bend, Colorado. She blinked rapidly. “My parents are gone?”

  8. this sounds like a very emotional read!!

  9. Ohhh … this is one of those books half of me things might be too scary or nasty (especially with that first line), but the other half of me knows I’d love it!

    I’m sharing from Where We Belong by Lynn Austen on my blog, but I’m currently reading Cardiac Event by Dr. Richard Mabry. Here’s the first line:

    Dr. Cliff Hamilton watched the bright green lines of the EKG dance across the monitor screen.

    I’m finding Cardiac Event is perhaps more medical murder mystery than thriller, but there is plenty of suspense and I’m enjoying it. I’ll post a full review on my website next week.
