Favourite Opening Lines 2017 #Books #AmReading #SundayBlogShare

In no particular order, these are some of the opening lines from books I’ve read over the last twelve months that drew me in.

That Bright Land ~ Terry Roberts

In the summer of 1886 I went down South to find and kill a man. It’s not what I would have chosen, and when I first arrived in the territory, I didn’t want to admit that’s what I was about. Nevertheless, I was well suited to the task – by my past and the shadows it cast in my soul.

High Force ~ LJ Ross

As soon as she awakened, MacKenzie knew he meant to kill her. There was no confused, fumbling recollection of what had happened. On the contrary, she remembered everything with horrifying clarity.

Can you ever truly know someone? And what if you suspect the unthinkable? 

London, five months before 7/7. Georgie, a young woman wary of relationships after previous heartbreak, gives in and agrees to sleep with close friend Julian. She’s shocked when Julian reveals he’s loved her for a long time. 

Sleeping together when they’d both had too much to drink changes the close, erstwhile completely platonic, friendship between Julian and Georgie forever. Georgie foolishly gives in to Julian’s pleading, despite her better judgement and lives to regret it when Julian declares his love for her. She doesn’t reciprocate his feelings and Julian takes it badly, especially so when Georgie becomes involved with Nikolai, an illegal Russian immigrant, who she met in a pub.  Continue reading
