First Line Friday — Always Look Twice

4 Oct

I am headed to my family’s cabin and hopefully cooler temps this weekend. I am taking along Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard, book 2 in the Uncommon Justice series.  I am looking forwarded to snuggling in a rocking chair and reading some great romantic suspense. Hopefully you will have a relaxing, reading weekend as well. 🙂

At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear — and loses the camera.

Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed–or how deeply they will fall for each other.

In this suspenseful page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps you on the edge of your seat as you discover that uncommon justice lies just on the other side of fear.


Elizabeth Goddard is the bestselling, award-winning author of forty romance novels and counting, including the romantic mystery, The Camera Never Lies — a 2011 Carol Award winner. Four of her six Mountain Cove books have been contest finalists. Buried, Backfire, and Deception are finalists in the Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense, and Submerged is a Carol Award finalist. A 7th generation Texan, Elizabeth graduated from North Texas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and worked in high-level software sales for several years before retiring to home school her children and fulfill her dreams of writing full-time.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Cold Pursuit” by Gayla K. Hiss:

    “Faith Chandler stared at the man walking in the distance.”

    Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m sharing the anthology Romancing the Rancher’s Daughter. Here I will share the first line in Chapter 21 in the second story, A Measure of Mercy by Debra E. Marvin. When dampness kept Witt’s shirt stuck to his back, and a much more feminine glisten shone on Addy’s brow, he motioned her away from the dance floor in favor of refreshments and a much-needed break. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from Simply Starstruck by Aspen Hadley: “It’s funny in life how you never recognize a big moment when it’s actually happening.”

    I really want to read this one!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I’m currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: “Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    Happy Friday!

    Today I’m sharing the first line from Son of the Father by Andrew Stone: I’m currently reading Fire Storm by Nancy Mehl so I’ll share a line from there.

    “When Jason came over to fix supper that night, Kaely told him about the assignment with Omaha.”

    I hope you have a relaxing weekend. 🙂❤📖
