First Line Friday Featuring A Cajun Christmas Killing by Ellen Byron

 The first line . . . 

 For Maggie Crozat, there was no where lovelier than Pelican, Louisiana, during the holidays. 

 And the next couple because this is good . . . 

Wrought-iron balconies were threaded with sparkling garlands, and from them dangled colorful Christmas ornaments. 

I just love the picture that author Ellen Byron shares with the reader just in these few lines.  Makes me want to go there!

And on page 56 . . . 

“Maggie Crozat, is that you again?” Delphine Arnaud responded. Delphine always seemed to be the dispatcher on duty when Maggie stumbled across a dead body.  

 That's all the teaser's for now.

  1. I finally got this book today, I’ve been waiting all month:
    The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark,
    From the prologue:
    Charleston, South Carolina, 1860
    The candlelight sent a shadow of Rose up against the wooden wall. From the shadow, Rose looked taller. Stronger. Funny thing about shadows. They made even the smallest things into monsters or fairies or whatever folks wanted.
    Happy reading!

  2. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I'm sharing the first few lines from Jody Hedlund's A Cowboy for Keeps: I'm currently on chapter 17 so I'll share from there.
    "Greta hadn't been ready for their kiss to end and wanted to press into Wyatt, showing him he didn't have to stop, that he could go on kissing her for as long as he wanted."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

  3. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Runaway River by Kim D. Taylor
    "The children were finally asleep.All fifty six of them."

    Have an amazing weekend!📚
