First Line Friday — Collision of Lies

27 Dec

Happy Friday! Can you believe that we enter a new decade in just a few days? It seems like yesterday that a new century was right around the corner — now it has been 20 years! Today I am featuring a book due to release in 2020. I received an ARC of Collision of Lies by Tom Threadgill from LibraryThing and am thrilled to be able to read a new-to-me author.

What new books are you anticipating?

Three years ago, a collision between a fast-moving freight train and a school bus full of kids led to devastation and grief on an unimaginable scale. But a fresh clue leads San Antonio police detective Amara Alvarez to the unlikely conclusion that one of the children may still be alive. If she’s correct, everything law enforcement believes about the accident is a lie.

With time running out, Amara must convince others — and herself — that despite all evidence to the contrary, the boy lives. And she will do everything in her power to bring him home.

A fresh voice in suspense, Tom Threadgill will have you questioning everything as you fly through the pages of this enthralling story.

Tom Threadgill turned his love of a good tale into a full-time profession. His books have a distinct focus on clean, suspenseful action with strong character development. He is a member of the International Thriller Writers (ITW) and American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). In his downtime, Tom enjoys woodworking, riding his Harley, and chasing the elusive Yard of the Month award. He currently resides with his wife in rural western Tennessee and can be reached through his website at

    Happy holidays!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines from The Perfect Christmas by Bell Renshaw: I’m currently reading Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green so I’ll share a line from there.

    “It was a lie, Meg had realized years ago, that the end of the war meant the end of suffering.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😊❤📖
