First Line Friday #53-Elysium Tide

Happy Friday, my bookish friends! Any plans for the weekend? Not much going on here.

Welcome back to First Line Friday hosted by Carrie at Reading is My SuperPower!! I am also linking up with Gilion on Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings. This is where you share the beginning of the book that you are reading. To join in the fun grab the book you are reading and leave a comment with the first line (or your link).  This week I am reading Elysium Tide by James R. Hannibal.

 Dr. Peter Chesterfield watched his chief resident cut a three-millimeter patch of flesh and muscle away from the boy's forehead above the eyebrow.

Book Beginnings:

Dr. Peter Chesterfield watched his chief resident cut a three-millimeter patch of flesh and muscle away from the boy's forehead above the eyebrow.  "Easy, Anna. No sense in leaving a scar that might scare the ladies off."

 About the book (Goodreads):

"When the Royal London Hospital orders a top neurosurgeon and workaholic to take a week off in Maui, he stumbles upon a murder and becomes obsessed with finding the killer. His efforts confound and irritate local detective Lisa Kealoha, but once they join forces, they uncover a destructive plot that runs far deeper than either of them could have imagined."

 Your turn! Grab the current book you are reading and post the first line in the comments! Then, click on the icons below and join the fun there too! Thank you all for coming by each week, I REALLY appreciate the support and comments 😀
