First Line Friday — Oath of Honor

5 Jan

Happy New Year! Today I am sharing the first line of a brand new book, Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason. This novel is the first book in a new series by Eason, Blue Justice. I love, love, love Eason’s romantic suspense novels and am eager to dig into this one. Do you have any brand-spanking new books on your shelves? I’d love for you to share a first line.

To find out what other bloggers are sharing today, head over to Hoarding Books.




Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she’s never without someone to hang out with — or fight with. And she knows they’ll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy’s investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll–including someone from her own family. With her dead partner’s handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy’s head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she’s had a secret crush on for years won’t leave her side?

Award-winning, best-selling author, Lynette Eason writes for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line and for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Her books have hit the CBA and ECPA bestseller lists and have won numerous awards such as the prestigious Carol Award, the Selah, the Daphne, the IRCC award and more. Lynette is married, has two children, and lives in Greenville, SC.

    I’ve never heard of this author but this sounds really good!

    Happy Friday!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I’m reading now, Any Day Now by Robyn Carr.

    So, this is what a new life looks like. Sierra Jones opened her eyes on a sunny Colorado morning to that thought.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    Happy Friday! Over on my blog this week, I’m featuring The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz (another amazing book!). My next book on the TBR stack just happens to be the feature book on Hoarding Books, so I won’t share an extra line in the comments this week. Have a wonderful weekend & keep warm!

    It’s on my must read list! Happy Friday!

    My first line(s) is from the Prologue in Susan May Warren’s new book Troubled Waters, which I finished last night:

    “Oh, this was a bad idea. Epically, abysmally, horrendously bad.”

    • rbclibrary January 5, 2018 at 11:14 am #

      I read that line today. Must be really, really bad! 😉

    My first line is from A Song Unheard by Roseanna White:

    “The music seeped into her soul like a fog over the Thames.”

    Love Rosanna’s lyrical prose!

    Love Lynette Eason books! And am so excited for her Lifetime movie!!

    I’m featuring Valerie Fraser Luesse’s “Missing Isaac” over at my blog, but the first line of the book that is currently sitting in front of is:

    “It was no surprise to me that I’d lost track of time.” (from A Song of Home by Susie Finkbeiner)

    I love Lynette Eason’s books! I finished Oath of Honor last week and really enjoyed it. I am currently reading Just the Way You Are, which I am spotlighting on my blog today, so I am going to share the first line from the chapter I am on. Chapter 5 “What an evening! Eisley pried off her shoes and rubbed her sore heels, blinking her focus on the bedside clock, 2:07am. Crazy end to a crazier day.”

    • rbclibrary January 6, 2018 at 7:53 am #

      So glad you enjoyed Oath of Honor. I am looking forward to digging in!

    MUST READ!!! I can’t wait to dive into Lynette’s story!

    Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.

      I must read House on Foster Hill! It’s going to be a surprise selection for my book club.
