First Line Friday

Is a feature post where booklovers can share the first line or two of the book we are reading…

Three sisters arrived on Sparrow, Oregon, in 1822 aboard a fur trading ship named Lady Astor, which sank later that year in the harbor just beyond the cape.

They were among the first to settle in the newly founded coastal town, and they strode onto the new land like thin-legged birds with wavy caramel hair and pastel skin.

This is from The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw.  This is a wickedly thrilling tale of a town with a dark curse. Can anyone stop it? 

When I ordered this book I was so excited to find out Shea is a local author and her story takes place in Oregon!


Thanks for stopping by friends! Have an amazing Friday!

  4. Oh, I love that first line, Lana! And how fun that it’s in Oregon!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing Not Her Daughter, but I’ll share from another book I’m reading here, Sadie,

    “DANNY GILCHRIST: It’s a beautiful day in the city. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky. I had a great lunch in Central Park, a chicken shawarma from the Shawarma Stop, which was overwhelmingly recommended to us by our listeners after last week’s episode on NYC’s best kept secrets. Thanks for that, you guys. It was so good, it just might be my dinner too. From WNRK New York, I’m Danny Gilchrist and you are listening to Always Out There.”

    Happy Friday! ♥️

    • Awesome! I will head over there and check it out! It’s been a busy morning here, I am a bit behind today on reading … ❤️
