First Line Friday –Justice Buried

13 Mar

I am way behind on my reading, but I am trying to use my recuperation time catching up. Today’s first line comes from book 2 in Patricia Bradley‘s Memphis Cold Case series, Justice Buried. I have this and 2 more unread books from this series on my shelf. MUST. GET. READING. LOL!

What is your first line?

Please head over to Hoarding Books for more First Line Friday fun!!



In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

Crackling with romantic tension and laced with intrigue, this suspenseful story from award-winning author Patricia Bradley will keep readers guessing — and looking over their shoulders.
