The Camera Never Lies | First Line Friday + The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

I probably won't have much time for reading this weekend, but if I do, this is what I'll be picking up.

First Line: Everyone I knew except my mother maintained a personal space bubble.

From Page 56: Spencer came to stand beside me. This cozy, romantic atmosphere was probably the worst place for me to be with the man. I had to get a handle on my decade-old feelings for him.


Crash the wedding and meet photographer Polly Perkins who zooms in on a murder victim. As she studies an endless line of potential suspects from safely behind her camera, Polly finds love staring back at her. Will her uncanny ability to read emotions through a camera lens help prevent another murder—while exploring her own potential for romance?

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. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I am sharing the first couple of lines from Delicate Balance by Brooke St. James: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/04/04/first-line-friday-82/. It’s a really sweet book I highly recommend. Currently, I am reading A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer, so I will share the first line from chapter 7.

    “‘Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.’ Willie gave a little jolt. The preacher read on, but the second verse of Galatians 6 seemed to bounce off the wood-planked walls and echo in Willie’s mind.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  2. Great opening line! Happy weekend!

  3. Great beginning. I know people like that. This week I am spotlighting Come and Get Me by August Norman. Happy reading!

  5. I like the quotes. This book seems interesting.

  6. Now this sounds fun. A perfect spring read:)

    My Friday 56 for Sit... Stay... Beg

  7. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from Up from the Sea by Amanda Dykes on my blog today. This is the first line from my current read, In the Shadow of Croft Towers by Abigail Wilson:

    "I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had never learned the truth."

  8. Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from What If It’s True? by Charles Martin:

    “He is stumbling now. A trail of blood marks His serpentine path on the narrow street out of the city.”


  9. Happy reading and happy weekend!
