Happy Friday!

This week, I received Irene Hannon's Dangerous Illusions, and I couldn't wait to start reading it. I'm only a few chapters in right now, but I'm intrigued so far. Maybe these lines will catch your interest, tooenjoy!

First Line: "Hello, Matt. Long time no see."

From Page 56: "He has that goofy, distracted expression guys get when some woman catches their eye."

Trish Bailey is on overload trying to deal with a demanding job, an ailing mother, and a healing heart. When a series of unsettling memory lapses leads to a tragic deathand puts Trish under police scrutinyher world is once again thrown into turmoil. 
Detective Colin Flynn isn't certain what to think of the facts he uncovers during his investigation. Did Trish simply make a terrible mistake or is there more to the case than meets the eye? As he searches for answers, disturbing information begins to emergeand if the forces at work are as evil as he suspects, the situation isn't just dangerous . . . it's deadly. 
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon captures readers with a mind-bending story that will have them doubling back to retrace their stepsand figure out what they missed!

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.
And be sure to stop by Hoarding Books and Freda's Voice for a peek into other books.


  1. Just finished that book and loved it. And I loved that line on pg 56 too. =)

    My first line is "Sometimes leading also means following. Sometimes being first means you actually arrive second." Service Tales by Ace Collins

  2. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Sarah Monzon’s latest book just released this week; “The Esther Paradigm”. I’m just over half-way through the book, and I’m loving the story. But you’ll have to go over there to read the first line for The Esther Paradigm. Here I’ll share with you the first line from an older favorite.

    Bedford, England — May 1659
    “The babe’s crying would rip her heart to shreds if she had to listen to it one more minute.” — The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund

  3. Ah, that goofy, distracted expression!

    I like the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “COLD AS ICE”

  4. I love Irene Hannon. I definitely need to read that!

    I'm featuring The Princess Bride on my blog, but I'm currently reading Meg Mitchell & the Secret of the Journals by Kimberly McNeil so I'll share that here.

    If I say I go to the White Raven for the food, I'd be lying, and I'm a journalist, which means I don't lie.

    Happy Friday!

  5. Sounds good. I like a nice twisty story. This week I am featuring Unholy City by Carrie Smith. Happy reading!

  6. Happy Friday! I'm excited to read Irene's newest series!

    His quarry was late. Very late. – An Eye For An Eye by Irene Hannon

  7. Sounds really interesting.

    My first line comes from Masquerade by Janette Rallison. This is a re-read for me of this fun book.

    "Opportunity didn’t knock for Slade Jacobson – it rang his cell phone at 10:34 pm while he was putting his daughter to bed for the third time."

  8. This looks really good! Happy weekend!

  9. I'll be interested to read reviews for this new series.

    I’m featuring the first line from Pepper Basham’s ‘Charming the Troublemaker’ on my blog, but I’m going to leave you with the first line of a book I’ll be reviewing tomorrow, ‘The Bachelor Missions’ by Jes Drew:

    “One bulky figure stands alone in the rain, keeping his head down–his identity obscured by a hat and large raincoat.”

  10. I'm ready for the next book in this series already :)

    The first line of the book I’m currently reading is:

    England, December 23, 1813
    Holly Gray’s courage faded with every step she took deeper inside the castle conservatory where, according to Grandfather’s stories, a ghost resided.

    Christmas Secrets by Donna Hatch

    Enjoy your weekend

  11. Thanks for featuring my latest, Hallie!

  12. I've heard a lot of good things about this author, maybe one day I'll get to her!
