First Line Friday #136

First Line Friday is hosted once again by Carrie at Reading is my Superpower. You can visit HERE to go directly to the FLF page of her blog.

Playing along is easy: open the book nearest you and share the first line. Then check out the link to see the other first lines posted this week.

The trembling clerk clothed in the rumpled livery of Master Kingston thrust the gilded coffer into my hands.

This is the third book from my dear friend Adrienne Dillard and I adore her and her books. I highly recommend all of them!

Leave a comment and let me know what you think, and leave a link to your FLF so I can stop by to see what you've posted this week.

Happy Reading!



  1. Interesting beginning. I'd keep reading to see where things go.

    I've got a historical mystery for my Friday post this week:

  2. My first line is from Crossfire by Lynette Eason:
    FBI Special Agent Julianna Jameson glanced at the alert on her phone. “Hostage situation in progress.” she murmured, reading the text aloud.

  3. I am sharing from The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip today. I love the cover of this one and hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend!

  4. Another historical *fiction*? Quite a surprise from you..... [grin]

    My first line: "Rose Morley was an excited young lady as with her father and grandfather and grandfather's servant she reached the air station at Victoria. For the first time in her life she was going to fly!" The 12.30 From Croydon by Freeman Wills Crofts

  5. Sounds like a good opening!

  6. I'd read it!

    When I posted this morning, The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip was my current read. As of the end of my lunch break today, I've finished it and posted my review. Stop by the blog to see both posts!

  7. Happy Friday!
    I'm currently reading Raising Kids Who Care by Susy Lee.
    "In a Harvard University study, a massive 96 percent of parents said they wanted to raise ethical, caring children."
    Hope you have a lovely weekend. 😀❤️📚

  8. I'm currently reading Finding Her Voice by Donna Gartshore. The first line is: "Bridget, I'm going for a quick lunch."

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Happy Saturday! This week I featured Deception by Patricia Bradley.

    Have a great weekend!
