First Line Friday — Point of Danger

25 Sep

Happy Friday! I am super excited about a new book and new series by Irene Hannon. Point of Danger, book 1 in the Triple Threat series, releases October 6, but I received an advanced copy from LibraryThing. Woo hoo!

Here’s the (startling) first line:

The package was ticking.


Radio talk show host Eve Reilly is used to backlash from her pot-stirring on-air commentary and interviews, but now it seems a disgruntled listener is resorting to more than angry words to express their displeasure. When a suspicious package arrives on her doorstep, Eve turns to law enforcement for help.

Police detective Brent Lange can’t find any evidence to link the string of unsettling incidents that follows, but he’s convinced they’re connected. As the harassment grows more menacing, it becomes clear someone wants Eve’s voice silenced — permanently. 

But unless he can track down her foe, fast, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes–and who is swiftly winning his heart — may not survive.

Irene Hannon is the best-selling author of more than 35 novels. Her books have been honored with the coveted RITA Award from Romance Writers of America, the HOLT Medallion, the Reviewer’s Choice Award from Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine and the Daphne du Maurier Award for mystery/suspense. Irene and her husband make their home in Missouri, USA. Irene invites you to visit her at her website,

    Happy Friday! 🙂
    I’m currently reading A Haven for Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason. It’s an excellent story! I’m just beginning chapter 21, so I’ll share from there.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚
