#FirstLineFriday ~ First Lines That Grab Your Attention #Reading #Books

First Line Friday is a weekly feature for book lovers, hosted by Reading Is My SuperPower. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

Leaves, mud and grass deaden sound. Even screams. The girl knows this.

What do you think? Does that opening make you want to read more?

Everyone watches their neighbours.

Elise King moves into the sleepy seaside town of Ebbing. Illness has thrown her career as a successful detective into doubt, but no matter how hard she tries to relax and recuperate, she knows that something isn’t right.

Everyone lies about their friends.

Tensions are running high beneath the surface of this idyllic community: the weekenders in their fancy clothes, renovating old bungalows into luxury homes, and the locals resentful of the changes. A town divided, with the threat of violence only a heartbeat away.

Everyone knows a secret.

This peaceful world is shattered when two teenagers end up in hospital and a local man vanishes without trace. Elise starts digging for answers, but the community closes ranks, and the truth begins to slip through her fingers. Because in a small town like this, the locals are good at keeping secrets…

Everyone’s a suspect when a local goes missing.
