#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?


He is anybody, everybody, nobody. A black jacket, blue jeans, baseball cap and black sneakers. That’s what the neighbours would see if they happened  to glance out the window if he passed through the front gate and crossed the three metres of cobbled path to the front of the house.


Ever get the feeling that you’re being watched?
Newlyweds Lina and Cain don’t make it out to their vacation home on gorgeous Lake Tarawera as often as they’d like, so when Cain suggests they rent the property out on weekends, Lina reluctantly agrees. While the home has been special to her family for generations, their neighbours are already renting our their properties, and to be honest, she and Cain could use the extra money. What could go wrong?


At first, Lina is amazed at how quickly guests line up – and at how much they’re willing to pay. But both Lina and Cain have been keeping secrets, secrets that won’t be kept out by a new alarm system or a locked cupboard. When strange things begin happening on their property, and a visit takes a deadly turn, Lina becomes convinced that someone out there knows something they shouldn’t.

And when they come for her, there will be nowhere left to hide.

    Have a great weekend!!!
