It’s the Friday before Christmas! Are you ready?! I’ve made so much fudge and cookies and OMG Bars that I’m ready for it all to Leave. My. House.
Today’s First Lines comes from Watching You by Lisa Jewell. Releases December 26, 2018.
DC Rose Pelham kneels down; she can see something behind the kitchen door, just in front of the trash can. For a minute she thinks it’s a bloodstained twist of tissue, maybe, or an old bandage. Then she thinks perhaps it is a dead flower. But as she looks at it more closely she can see that it’s a tassel. A red suede tassel. The sort that might once have been attached to a handbag, or to a boot. It sits just on top of a small puddle of blood, strongly suggesting that it had fallen there in the aftermath of the murder.
