First Lines Friday April 13th: Father Figure by James (Jay) J Cudney

Hi friends,

 

It’s Friday again! Yepeee some free time ahead and more sleeping hours. Tomorrow my son is coming back from Corsica with his class. I wonder what he’ll have to tell. It’s been really quiet this week with only my daughter at home. No fights between them. Pure bliss!

Other private life news too: my daughter probably got her first student job! She was really determined to work but not being 18 yet she had limited choices. But Julie was persistent and she probably landed a job as a waitress in a tea room. She did a first trial on a low day and will be back for her second trial tomorrow when the tea room will be busy like hive! Fingers crossed.

Another tidbit of information: I’ve read an amazing book this week and I chose to feature it today.

 

Why is it exceptional you say?

 

Well because it’s a fellow blogger’s book and if I expected something good I was not prepared for amazing! My review is already on Goodreads but as I volunteered to be on the blog tour I won’t publish the review on the blog before the due date.

 

Here I go with my first lines and as a reminder First Line Friday is a weekly meme hosted by hoardingbooks!

 

“Stop interrogating me. I’m not going to say anything different,” a panic-stricken voice shrieked after begging for the third time to leave for the hospital. “There was so much blood.”

 

These lines come from Father Figure by James J Cudney. A suspense and family drama with an intricate plot like none other!

 

Now do leave your first lines here below please.

Happy Friday and thanks for reading!

Sophie

      Oh yes Greg! And you won’t know more about this scene for a loooong time. Happy Saturday!

  4. On my blog, I’m featuring Jen Turano’s book, A Match of Wits. Here I will share the first line on page 113 of a book I’m currently reading, The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. “Marriage in Heaven will be on a much higher plane because the church will be united with Christ.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

      Such inspiring quote! Thank you Anneliese.

  5. Thank you so much. 🙂 I still get a few chills thinking about the image his refers to… and knowing readers won’t find out who it’s about for quite a bit of time is even worse. 🙂

    I’m so lucky to have such great friends and strong support for my book. Much gratitude. Xoxo

  8. It’s definitely a griping opening line. And I quite enjoyed the rest of the story too

    Glad you enjoyed your ‘quiet’ time. My three are off for a night at the grandparents’ in a bit. Yaay.

      Yepee! You’ll have some free time to read or do as you please 😉 Enjoy Nina!

      1. Sleep! Lol. It was lovely not to be awoken this morning by breakfast or referee service requests. Reading now… 😉

  9. Im so embarrassed that I haven’t read this yet!!

    Happy Friday! My FLF comes from a book I will be reading soon, Her Fear by Shelley Shepard Gray…….

    Until that moment, Sadie Detweiler hadn’t thought mere words could hurt so badly. But as Harlan continued to speak, each word cutting her as deeply as if it were a shard of glass, Sadie felt her heart was bleeding.

    Have an awesome weekend and Happy Reading!

      Hahaha don’t be embarrassed Susan just read it some day. I promise you it’s that good! I knew based on his daily posts that Jay could write but I had no idea how a brilliant scheming mastermind he was! And poor Sadie! I hope she’ll find joy because she seems in a bad place based on your lines.
