First Line Fridays: Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson:

"'Who's there?' My mother's haunted whisper drew me to her bedside."

Have you read this book? I haven't. It's still sitting on my TBR stack, but it is near the top!  😁

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

She knew the house was keeping secrets. If only the darkness would speak . . .

After her elder brother’s mysterious death, Rebecca Hunter vows to expose the man she believes responsible: Mr. Lewis Browning—known by the locals as the Midnight Devil and by Rebecca as her new guardian.
Summoned to his reclusive country estate to await her London season, Rebecca plans her own secret investigation among the darkened corridors of the mysterious Greybourne Hall. Yet Lewis Browning is not as she once imagined, and his motivation is horribly unclear. Recurrent nightmares and Rebecca’s restless feelings are further complicated by the shadow of her mother’s prior descent into madness and wondering if she, too, will follow the same heartbreaking path.
Even as midnight rides, strange injuries, and further murders lead back to Mr. Browning, Rebecca can’t ignore the subtle turn of her heart. Has she developed feelings for the man she swore to see hanged? And moreover, can she trust him with her uncertain future?

First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books


  1. It is always fun to visit other blogs and see which books people choose to feature for FLF! This week I'm sharing the first line (and a few bonus lines...I just couldn't help myself) from The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken.
    Here I'll share the first line from Chapter 8 of the same book.
    "Nearly all the apple trees along the main drive had bloomed, their pale petals washed by moonlight against the dark sky."

  2. Ooooo, that line hooked me in! Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Brett, Billionaire Bodyguard” by Autumn Macarthur & Alexa Verde:

    “Brett Jarvis grimaced, yawned, and snatched up his ringing cell phone. Two a.m. phone calls rarely meant good news, especially in his business.”

    1. I don't think I've heard of that one before now. Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first line from A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden: I'm currently on chapter two of A Daring Venture by Camden. I'm on a Camden kick! 😀

    "By the time Rosalind arrived at the crowded Manhattan restaurant to meet Mr. Drake, her nerves were wound as tight as a piano wire."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 😀❤📚

  5. I’m currently reading The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter. I’m on chapter 19 so I’ll share the first line of that chapter. “Sara had just finished waiting on a customer when Brad came into the shop, wide-eyed and with deep furrows lining his forehead.”

  6. On my blog today I'm sharing the first few lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I'm currently reading Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes so I'll share the first line from chapter 24 here: "Bess's words travel with Annie down to the landing." This book is soo good so far! Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I've heard such good things about Whose Waves Theses Are! Enjoy!

  7. I’ve heard great things about this book!

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate.

    Natalie Groves eyed the bag of Gingerbread M&M’s on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions.

  8. Great lines!

    The closest book to hand is The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey --- Fire ripped through Finn's right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Midnight on the River Grey sounds fascinating.
