Welcome to another edition of First Line Friday. I’m in the middle of Lynette Eason’s latest release, Chasing Secrets, as we speak (write/read?), so I thought I would share the first line with you this week. Since JaneReads shared the first line of the prologue on her blog a few weeks ago, I’m sharing the first line of Chapter 1 this week:
~ About the Book ~
Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan may be in South Carolina, but when a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, her life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she’s made a career out of taking care of others. But after an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her–and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he’s not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.
In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories–and the depths of the heart–Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley’s past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won’t quit.

The knock on the door jerked ninety-year-old Ian Burke out of his afternoon nap.
Now, time to get back to Haley and Steven and find out what’s going to happen next!
