Welcome to my “First Lines Fridays”. This is a weekly meme, that I first saw on Jill’s Book Blog and which is originally hosted by Wondering Words.
- Choose a book from your shelves/current read
- Open the book to the first page
- Copy the first line on the page, making sure you don’t give away the book title
- Reveal the book.
“Everyone who visited, worked or lived at Conmere knew the lake to be the beauty and beast all at the same time. A water with two faces – the south shoreline the beauty, bathed in sunlight, the water sparkling and glistening as it gently lapped the pebbles around the edge.“
Do you recognise which book these lines come from?
This weeks book is…
Synopsis/Blurb (taken from Goodreads):
“SINCLAIR WIFE DEAD! HUSBAND CLEARED!
Police have ruled out suspicious circumstances in the investigation into the death of Elizabeth Sinclair, wife of charismatic entrepreneur Harry Sinclair, found drowned in the lake of the family’s holiday park. [to look like newspaper cutting]
It’s been two years since the Sinclair case closed but when reporter Steph Durham receives a tipoff that could give her the scoop of the year, she’s drawn deeper and deeper into the secretive Sinclair family.
Elizabeth’s death wasn’t a tragic accident. And the truth will come at a deadly price”
