My dear patron, are you looking for your next love affair? Well, I am back to give you some more dating options.
This dating segment will work differently than the ones in the past (see round 1 and round 2. So far I was acted as intermediary between book and reader. Today I thought I would allow the book to speak for itself.
After all, each book, just like any suitor, has its own pick-up lines. That first sentence or two crafted to entice you from the very start.
Below are four first line(s) of four mystery books. If one of them flirts with your interest, I implore you to pick it up and take it out for the evening.
BLIND DATE #1
First lines: “When a man you know to be of sound mind tells you his recently deceased mother has just tried to climb in his bedroom window and eat him, you only have two basic options. You can smell his breath, take his pulse, and check his pupil’s to see if he’s ingested anything nasty, or you can believe him.”
BLIND DATE #2
First line: “He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad.”
BLIND DATE #3
First lines: “Every seven-year-old deserves a superhero. That's just how it is.”
BLIND DATE #4
First line: “The moon blew up with no warning and with no apparent reason.”
