First Line Friday — The Premonition at Withers Farm

5 Aug

Happy Friday! Today I am featuring one of the newest novels on my NetGalley shelf, The Premonition at Withers Farm. This new dual-time, mystery/suspense from Jaime Jo Wright is just the thing for those who like a shiver-y good read. It’s not out yet, but you can pre-order HERE.

Now for a sneak peek at the first line:

When death came to visit, no one ever prepared tea and cookies.

The voices of the past cannot stay silent forever.

In 1910 Michigan, Perliett Van Hilton is a self-proclaimed rural healer, leaving the local doctor convinced she practices quackery. It doesn’t help that her mother is a spiritualist who regularly offers her services to connect the living with their dearly departed. But when Perliett is targeted by a superstitious killer, she must rely on both the local doctor and an intriguing newcomer for assistance.

In the present day, Molly Wasziak’s life has not gone the way she dreamed. Facing depression after several miscarriages, Molly is adapting to her husband’s purchase of a peculiar old farm. A search for a family tree pulls Molly deep into a century-old murder case and a web of deception, all made more mysterious by the disturbing shadows and sounds inside the farmhouse.

Perliett fights for her life, and Molly seeks renewed purpose for hers as she uncovers the records of the dead. Will their voices be heard, or will time forever silence their truths?

Daphne du Maurier and Christy Award-Winning author, Jaime Jo Wright resides in the hills of Wisconsin writing suspenseful, mysteries stained with history’s secrets. Jaime lives in dreamland, exists in reality, and invites you to join her adventures at jaimewrightbooks.com!

    Waiting for my copy of Premonition to get here! Can’t wait!

    My first line is from Crossfire by Lynette Eason:
    FBI Special Agent Julianna Jameson glanced at the alert on her phone. “Hostage situation in progress.” she murmured, reading the text aloud.
