In Too Deep by Lynn H. Blackburn + FLF

It’s time for First Line Fridays, reader friends! Today’s featured title is In Too Deep by Lynn H. Blackburn (Dive Team Investigations book 2)! Check out the first line and my review below, then open the book nearest you and share the first line!

My apologies for not keeping the bookish bargains updated over the last week! Our entire household was brought down by a nasty upper respiratory bug… the headache, sore throat, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, lingering fever variety.

Fortunately, we are on the mend so I’ll do my best to update the ebook deals under $2 on the shop page this weekend! As always, I only share books from authors I am familiar with or those that have been recommended to me by a well-read friend.

Feed your ereader or Kindle app or try the Kindle Unlimited program or take the 2 free audiobooks Audible trial for a spin! Whichever way you choose to enjoy your stories, I wish you hours of happy reading this weekend!

The shrill ping of his cell phone earned white-collar crimes investigator Adam Campbell a vicious glare from his aunt Margaret.


my thoughts

This story is jam-packed with fast-paced action and laced with just enough swoony attraction to keep that heart rate up throughout! Adam and Sabrina remind me a little bit of the hero and leading lady in the Arrow television series (forgive me if I’m completely off base… my husband watches while I read books).

I love the teammate co-worker/friends dynamic connecting the half dozen main and secondary characters. Inner workings of the investigation are fascinating, not lost in technical jargon or lengthy procedures. Human trafficking elements are always hard to read in a story yet I’m thankful for the increased awareness of this ever-present evil.

I highly recommend this series and look forward to reading the final installment of the Dive Team Investigations series soon!

I purchased this book. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. I’m reading One Final Breath now — great series. My first line comes from another book I am reading — Stitches in Time by Suzanne Woods Fisher. “It took a lot to shock Luke Schrock.”

    Happy Friday!


  2. Happy Friday! The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is a nonfiction by Ariniko O’Meara, A City Saunter Story. Here’s the first line to Chapter 40: “Whatever you do, don’t walk Baker Street!” I read the message three times. As much as I knew my friend meant well, I felt she wasn’t fully grasping my project.
    Have a wonderful weekend!


  3. Over on my blog this week, I’m sharing the first line from Jody Hedlund’s newest YA book, Foremost.
    Here I’ll share the first line of a book I’m nearly finished reading, Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy.
    “Josephine Nordegren floated through the woodland silent as a ghost.”


  4. Great series, I’ve found a new favorite author!

    My first line is from chapter 2 of Something Old, Something New by Kathleen Maher in Lessons on Love novella collection by Barbour:

    A brisk breeze blew in from the Hudson on Josh’s early morning walk, and he drew in the earthy scents of river and pine.


  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I’m currently reading Freedom’s Kiss by Sarah Monzon. I’m just starting chapter 29, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “Florida, 1832
    Winnie felt like a cow being led to slaughter, just waiting her turn to stand before the butcher with a club in his hand.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time. ?❤?

    July 23 – Yellowstone National Park is a paradise of mountain wilderness, studded with dramatic canyons, alpine rivers and lush forest.

  7. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Least Expected” by Autumn Macarthur:

    “Maggie Golding ran her fingers through her multi-coloured hair, planted her hands on her hips, and took a step back to examine the latest window display she’d created for Pettett and Mayfields London department store.”
