First Line Fridays: “Leverage in Death” by J.D. Robb

First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.

Happy Friday!

First week of September done, just like that. If you’ve read my August wrap-up, you’ll know that I’ve set up quite a challenge for myself this month, and I think I’m off to a good start. I’ve already finished one book (yay!) and am well into my second one. I only took a quick break from it to write this post.

My FLF pick today is one I’ve been waiting to come up since, well, since it was announced.




Thou shalt not kill.

Paul Rogan didn’t consider himself a religious man, but that commandment played over and over his head as he stepped into the lobby. As his wing tips clicked on the polished marble floor, those four words beat inside him.




Leverage in Death is the 47th book in J.D. Robb’s long-running crime thriller/romance series. I already have the e-book (and waiting for my pre-ordered copy to arrive in the mail) and I’m excited to start reading it. I have to postpone it though since I have to finish my blog tour books. I think I can get to it next week, so, that’s something I’m really looking forward to. I can’t wait to see just what case Eve is handling in this one (sounds like it involve suicide bombing). Also, as it is with series, it’s always fun to catch up with all the series’ regular cast. It almost feels like seeing old friends you haven’t seen in a while.

What are you guys and gals reading today? Hit me up with ’em, won’t you. 🙂

    Happy Friday Rachel!😎

    My first lines come from a book I’m reading next, In Her Bones by Kate Moretti.

    Your life is more open than you think. You think you’re safe. You have neighborhood watches and room -darkening drapes, password-protected computers, alarm systems, and garage codes that are absolutely not your firstborn’s birthday.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊💕

      This is a pretty interesting book, Susan! I’ve only read one Kate Moretti book a couple of years ago, but I remember loving it. I’m keeping my eye out for this one. Happy Friday! 😀

    Wow! That’s quite a thought running through his head. Why would he need the reminder? Hmm…

    Oh, my! Quite an opening. I’m featuring Michelle Griep’s new novella, A Tale of Two Hearts, on my blog today. Here is the second line:

    “Closing her eyes, she savored the warmth and the first line to a new adventure, as was her wont whenever Miss Whymsy stopped by and lent her a book.”

    Happy Friday!

    Happy Friday!
    The Book I’m sharing on my blog this week is A Love Restored by Kelly Goshorn but I’m currently reading The Abolitionist’s Daughter by Kathleen Maher so I’ll share the first line of that here: “The wrong ideas could get a head–and a body–into a heap of trouble.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
