Escape Route | First Line Friday + The Friday 56

First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Reading Is My SuperPower.
The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.

Happy Friday!

I can't believe it's already September...

First Line: TJ Baskins pushed the control stick, and the helicopter dipped closer to the ground.

From Page 56: Great. Just what he needed to walk in on. A brewing argument.


Exposing a gang’s leader…

is the only way out of danger.

While flying above the Texas border, helicopter pilot Tara Jean “TJ” Baskins witnesses a brutal murder. Now a deadly arms-smuggling gang wants her out of the way. To stay alive, TJ must work with border patrol officer Trace Leyton—her old friend and the man who once betrayed her—to catch the ringleader. But when the search leads to Trace’s family, can TJ trust him to save her?

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.

  1. Escape Route sounds like a good story. I like the quotes too.

  2. Sounds intriguing!

    My first line this week is from The Bride of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep:
    London 1885
    September afternoons were meant for soft whispers and stolen kisses, not ash and soot and the gangrenous eye of a ruthless taskmaster.

  3. I like the cover! I hope you enjoy this one. Have a great weekend!

  4. I bet this is a great read!! Happy weekend!

  5. I'm currently reading Sit, Stay, Love by Dana Mentink. It's super cute!
    "Gina was surprised at the size of the ranch."
    Have a great weekend! 😀

  6. I enjoy Love Inspired Suspense books.

    I'm reading another book by Karen Witemeyer: Full Steam Ahead. The first line is: "Passengers jockeyed for position along the steamboat Louisiana's railings, waving and calling merry farewells to the crowd lining the levee."

    Have a great holiday weekend!
