First Line Fridays #5 Special Military Edition: Conspiracy of Silence

It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by the Hoarding Books blog!

20171006_010334.jpg

Today is a special edition of First Line Friday with a book theme of military/patriotic/Veteran’s Day!!! Sincerest thank you to all who have served in our armed forces. May you be blessed for your sacrifice.

I have chosen to share the first line from Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig because this action/adventure book takes a serious look at the sacrifice and hard work of one awesome paramilitary/Special Forces team. Plus, I’ll welcome any excuse to talk about this series!

The first line (of chapter 1):

Jebel-Al-Lawz, Tabuk Province, Saudi Arabia

Vindication tasted like sweat.

  1. Ahhhh….. Tox! 😍

    I already had Drew Farthering’s latest adventure, Death at Thorburn Hall, lined up for today before I remembered about the Veteran’s Day theme, so that’s the book featured on my blog, but I thought I would pick one of Ronie Kendig’s books to share here in honour of Veteran’s Day. This is the first line from ‘Raptor 6’:

    “Can’t breathe. Can’t breathe.”

  2. Yay Tox! 🙂

    Over at my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Susan Sleeman’s Cold Terror.

    I’m currently reading Welcome to Wishing Bridget by Ruth Logan Herne, so I’ll leave that first line here:

    Don’t do it.

  3. My first line (well, really first two lines because they are so good) is from Runaway Romance by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Ann Stanway sat in her television producer’s office trying to still the butterflies doing battle in her belly. No, not butterflies, more like buzzards.”

  4. My first line is from a book I’m going to be reading soon Hope Travels Through by Loni Kemper Moore…..

    The first time Dad picked me up at the Evansville airport in his 1976 Corvette, I should have recruited a fairy godmother. Not that I believed in such things.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. OH.MY.TOX! Happy Weekend!

    BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
    SEPTEMBER 1943

    Esther’s father halted the lazy swaying of the porch swing. – While We’re Far Apart by Lynn Austin

  6. I need to read this series!

    Happy Friday!

    I’m showcasing The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner on my blog this week. So, here I will share a line from the book I’m currently reading, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan. I’m just starting chpt. 15, so that’s the line I’ll share:

    “On Monday morning, Kate heard her email ping and saw the message was from the Northern District of Georgia. Her heartbeat sped up as she clicked to open it.”

  7. Any excuse to talk about Tox is a good excuse!
    My current read is An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter
    Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797
    “The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.”
