First Line Fridays: The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep

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 line from The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep:

"Death prowled the cellblock like a dark animal seeking prey -- especially the weakest."

Have you read this book? Book blurb below and you can read my review here.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:

What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?

Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from "The Heart of a Hero" by Susan May Warren:

    "In the daylight, Jake Silver wasn't the devil."

    1. I just read that one recently and thoroughly enjoyed it!

  2. Wow, that certainly sets the tone of the book doesn't it? Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday!

    Wow! What an amazing line to pull your right into the story.

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the first line from All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes by Betsy St. Amant:

    "There was more to life than vanilla buttercream."

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I haven't read any books by her, but I'd like to. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The King's Mercy by Lori Benton:
    I'm currently on chapter 16 so I will share the first line from there.
    "The Joanna's loss was a blow to Severn's economy, that of her crew a sorrow, but Captain Kelly's death struck deepest."
    I hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time! ๐Ÿ™‚❤️๐Ÿ“š

  5. My first line is from STORIES THAT BIND US by Susie Finkbeiner

    My Norman had never understood why I liked to hang laundry on the line when I had a perfectly good dryer inside.

    REALLY enjoyed Michelle’s book!

    1. I'm looking forward to reading Stories that Bind Us!

  6. Happy Friday!!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Misty Beller's Love's Mountain Quest. "The woman stood in the wind, skirts billowing, hair flying, as though the gusts swept away all her inhibitions." I just finished it and it was really good!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. I've never read a Michelle Griep book before but have heard great things about them. Happy reading!

  8. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Comparison Girl by Shannon Popkin but I'm currently reading The Way of Love by Tracie Peterson so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (5) here: "Mrs. Weaver joined the boardinghouse residents for breakfast the next morning." Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love this one if you haven't read it yet! :)
