First Line Friday — The Catch

8 Apr

Happy Friday! I have been in something of a reading slow-down. I have enjoyed the books I’ve recently read, but I can’t seem to finish them in a timely fashion. What used to take me just a few days is stretching past a week. Yikes! I need a shot of something to get going. Of course I am behind on some series too. But Lisa Harris‘ newest release, The Catch, book 3 in her US Marshals series, might just be the kickstart I need to solve two reading dilemmas!

Here’s the first line:

He’d lied to her again.

After a harrowing attempt on a judge’s life at the courthouse, Deputy US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn are tasked with finding a missing woman and an endangered child in connection to the murder of the judge’s wife. What seems like a fairly straightforward case becomes hopelessly tangled when the marshals discover that the woman they are searching for is not who they think she is.

Madison and Jonas are forced into a race to find the woman and the child before the men who want her dead discover her location. And in a final showdown that could cost her everything, Madison will come face-to-face with the person who murdered her husband.

USA Today bestselling author Lisa Harris concludes her thrilling US Marshals series with this breathless tale of secrets kept, lies exposed, and ultimately, justice prevailing.

    The Catch was a great book!

    My first line is from Shadowed Loyalty by Roseanna White:
    June, 1922. Chicago
    The wind tore down the alley, forcing Sabina Mancari to hold her cloche hat in place with one hand as she stepped around the corner.

    Happy Friday!
    I’m just starting The Valet’s Secret by Josi S. Kilpack, so I’ll share the first line from there.
    “If Kenneth Bartholomew Winterton had learned anything in his life, it was that there were things a man could live without and there were things that were entirely essential.”
    Hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤📚
