First Line Fridays #7: The White Feather Murders by Rachel McMillan

Yes, you may ask what am I doing picking up yet another new book when I am so behind on my Goodreads Challenge? I am going to catch up when work starts again, thanks to audiobooks. Cheating, I know.  
Admittedly I was not really planning to read this book, I'm doing so because of a well-timed sale on the Kindle edition. 

I requested The White Feather Murders, the final book in a trilogy featuring two unconventional female Canadian sleuths based in early 20th century Toronto, from Netgalley way back in March. You've guessed, it was another title that I forgot to download. I'm not normally so absent minded, but its happened twice this year. 

Since then I have been hoping for the Kindle edition to go on sale, or for my library to get it. The former happened first. Seems fitting as I have all the others on Kindle too.

                               The White Feather Murders: Herringford and Watts Mysteries  #3 

The first line goes: 

 "War was on the tip of Merinda Herringford's tongue"  

Have a look at what the others in the group are reading by visiting the links below.

  1. Ooh that's an intriguing first line.

    I'm sharing about "The Day the Angels Fell" by Shawn Smucker on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from the book I'm currently reading, "Under Fire" by Linda Shenton Matchell.

    "Ruth Brown swiped the perspiration beads off her upper lip as her's sister's vacant coffin dropped into the ground with a dull thud."

  2. That is such a good book!

    My first line is from The Outlaw’s Second Chance by Angie Dicken
    The Cherokee Strip September 15, 1893
    Aubrey Huxley rushed over when her father shoved his bony finger against the customer’s shoulder.
    Happy Friday!

  3. Love that first line! This sounds like a good series ~ I'll have to check it out. :-) Happy Friday!

  4. I've seen the cover of this book before...it looks like a really interesting series. :) Happy Friday!

  5. I've read one of these, and it was so witty and full of humor!

    My first line is coming from the next book I'm hoping to read (okay, honest truth, I've already started it but have set it aside a week or two).
    "Joyanna Shein glanced at her parents. She knew there was something wrong...there had been something wrong for days."
    A Question of Honor, by Jesseca Wheaton

  6. This series is in my tbr as well!

  7. Happy Friday! My first line (sorry but actually two lines) is from Outlaw Angel by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Angel Ramirez woke with a start, her heart pounding a rolling beat in her chest. Someone was in her room.”

  8. My first line today is from the book I’m currently reading, Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz:

    Drew McKinley twisted he gold wedding band around and around his finger then made a tight fist.

    It's now Saturday and it's raining, so guess what I'm doing this afternoon?
