first-line-friday-3

Hi Everyone! It’s First Line Friday, so grab a book near you and share your first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first line from a book I read an enjoyed last year but didn’t get a chance to blog about – Too Far Down by Mary Connealy.

Too Far Down

Here is the first line:

SKULL GULCH, NEW MEXICO TERRITORY
FEBRUARY 1881

An explosion brought Cole Boden to his feet.

about-the-book-2

When an explosion kills men and damages the CR Mining Company, the Bodens realize their troubles are not behind them as they thought. Shadowy forces are still working against them.

Cole Boden finds himself caught between missing his time back East and all that New Mexico offers. Sure he fights with his siblings now and then, but he does care for them. He enjoys running the mine and, when he’s honest, he admits that Melanie Blake captures his interest in a way no other woman ever has.

Melanie has been a friend to the Bodens forever. A cowgirl who is more comfortable with horses and lassoes than people, she never expected to find herself falling for someone. Particularly for refined Cole Boden, a Harvard graduate who may not stay long at the ranch. She’s determined, however, to help the Bodens finally put an end to the danger that’s threatened all of them. But will puting herself in harm’s way be more dangerous than anyone expected?

  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My First Lines come from If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren…….

    “Watching you die is the last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning.” Sierra said it in a low mutter, nearly under her breath, but Ian heard it anyway, a slash across his chest, right between the ribs.

    Have a great weekend, stay cool, and Happy Reading!😊💖📚
