Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
Deadly Target by Elizabeth Goddard.
Criminal psychologist Erin Larson’s dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.
Nathan Campbell’s father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin’s help to solve the case. She’s good at what she does. The only problem? She’s his ex.
As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted–and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.
[Graphic Text]: Puget Sound — For a few hours every Saturday morning, Erin Larson could forget that evil existed.
Now it’s your turn. Pull out the book beside you and tell us the first line.

Finished Deadly Target this morning! That was an easy review to write! Action packed story!
My first line is from Crosshairs by Patricia Bradley.
“Come on! It was almost midnight, and the light in Cora Chamberlain’s bedroom blazed like a neon sign.”
Another Super Suspense book!
I quite agree!! I hope you enjoy Crosshairs, too. So many amazing suspense books out this month!
I just watched a Zoom meeting with Elizabeth Goddard, Patricia Bradley, Natalie Walters, and Irene Hannon last night. It was such a FUN hour. These ladies are amazing. I look forward to reading Deadly Target one day … soon! LOL! Anyway, happy Friday! I’m currently reading Royally Rearranged by Emma St. Clair. It’s such a cute book. I am loving it. Here is a line from the chapter I am on: “My parents arrive the next afternoon, bringing with them an icy wind.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
