First Line Friday

I was searching through some book blogs the other day and came across this…

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

So I thought I would share it with all that follow

2016

The e-mail arrived in my inbox like an unexploded bomb:  Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook.

For a second I miss the Facebook reference, and just see “Maria Weston wants to be friend.”  Instinctively I slam the Laptop shut.  It feels as though a sponge has been lodged in my throat, soaking up water, swelling and clogging, leaving me struggling for breath.

I attempt to breathe deeply, trying to get myself back under control.  Perhaps I was mistaken.  I must have been mistaken because this cannot possibly be happening.  Slowly I raise the lid of my laptop.  Hands shaking, I go back into the e-mail and this time there is no denying the bad fact of it.  Maria Weston wants to be friend with me.

I have been hearing so many good reviews on this book, and I just had to read to see for myself.

Are you ready to find out what it is?
