First Line Friday — Labyrinth of Lies

8 Oct

Happy Friday! I am always on board for a book by Irene Hannon. I love both her contemporary romance and her romantic suspense novels. Today I am featuring Labyrinth of Lies, the second book in her Triple Threat series. I am woefully behind on this series, but I now have two great reading opportunities . 😉 In the coming weeks look for reviews of this book and the first in the series, Point of Danger.

Here are the first two lines:

They wanted her to take on another undercover gig? No way.

When the daughter of a high-profile businessman disappears from an exclusive girls’ boarding school, police detective Cate Reilly is tapped for an undercover assignment. It doesn’t take her long to realize that beneath the veneer of polish and wealth, things are not as they seem at Ivy Hill Academy. But the biggest surprise of all? The only man she ever loved is also working at the school.

Zeke Sloan has never forgotten Cate, but now isn’t the best time for their paths to cross again. When their two seemingly disparate agendas begin to intertwine–and startling connections emerge among the players–the danger escalates significantly. But who is the mastermind behind the elaborate ruse? And how far will they go to protect their house of cards?

Queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon invites you to scale the heights of human folly and plumb the depths of the human heart in this second gripping book in the Triple Threat series.

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,

    My first line is from suspense writer C. C,. Warrens: Firefly Diaries:
    Chapter One
    Dry leaves stirred around Noelle’s feet as she climbed the bowed and weathered steps onto the wraparound porch.

    I’m looking forward to reading this one! This weekend, I’m reading And Cowboy Makes Three by Deb Kastner. The first line is: “Angelica May Carmichael had been duped.”
