First Line Fridays: The Last Resort by Marissa Stapley

He struggles to breathe. There’s blood trickling into one of his eyes. His glasses are gone. He can hear the ocean rising to meet him. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. ”

The Last Resort by Marissa Stapley (2019, Simon & Schuster Canada)

I have just started this novel and it promises to be a good one!

  1. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It’s a really good book! I’m currently on chapter 25, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. πŸ˜€β€πŸ“š

  2. Today on my blog I’m featuring the first line from No Greater Love by Gina Holder but It’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 15 here: “Kathleen tucked her legs under the steering wheel of her rental.” Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time!

  3. My first line is from The Express Bride by Kim Woodhouse:
    Prologue:
    St. Louis, March 1834
    With shaking limbs, she climbed into the plush carriage awaiting her, the precious bundle in her arms worth far more than the money, trinkets and trunks of clothing she left behind.
    Wonderful book. Check out the whole series of The Daughters of the Mayflower.

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Edge of Truth” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    “The hair on Kara Nelson’s neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn’t right.”

  5. Happy Friday! That’s quite the opening! I’m sharing from The Crossing at Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman on my blog today. I’m only a few pages in, and this is my favorite line so far:

    “Her stomach did a slow roll at the unexpected lilt of an Irish brogue.”
