  1. My first line is coming from Where Grace Appears by Heidi Chiavaroli.
    “The nature of secrets is that they long to be kept and long to be told all at the same time.”https://www.musingsofasassybookishmama.com/2022/09/first-line-friday-where-grace-appears.html

  2. My first line comes from As Secret as the Night by Danielle Grandinetti:
    December 6, 1933. Chicago
    Lucia Critelli lowered her head against the bitter wind that raced the cars down the city street.

  3. That’s such a cool cover! I’m currently reading An Abduction Cold Case by Connie Queen and the first line is: “Kennedy Wells slammed on the brakes of her Mini Cooper as she looked out the driver’s-side window and squinted toward the dense woods.” Happy Weekend!
