Opening Sentence of the Day: The First Day of the Rest of My Life

The Gunshot Anniversary is coming up.

-- The First Day of the Rest of My Life by Cathy Lamb.

Well, that's a first sentence to grab your attention.  And it just takes off from there.


  1. I'm definitely wondering what the gunshot anniversary is, and where this book takes place.

  2. Well, the opening scene is a flashback to a courthouse shoot out, so that gives you a clue. But I don't know (yet) where that took place. The heroine lives in Portland in modern day.

  3. You always read such interesting books! Stopping by your blog each week is very dangerous for my TBR pile!!

  4. The cover looks like a peaceful setting. A shootout flashback to begin with?

  5. Yeah -- wow -- that is a crazy good opening line!
