Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary

has chosen a winner and two runner ups for April’s Favorite Lines Friday:

1st Place

Julie Mulhern with book four of The Country Club Murders.

I’ve tripped over a body. I’ve run over a body. I’ve even swam into a body. I never imagined one would fall on me.

Then again, wandering around a place called The Gates of Hell, what did I expect?

2nd Place

Bethany Goble with her Work-In-Progress Operation Desert Snow.

Wallstreet picked up his MK23 and started to field strip it. “I was sixteen the first time I realized a woman had the power to knock me on my ass.”

Irish grunted. “I grew up with three older sisters. I was born knowing Barbie could kick GI Joe’s ass.”

3rd Place

Tara Harlow with her Work-In-Progress Risking Riley.  

I take off again. My lungs are on fire, but I keep going. I can lose them in the Wrigleyville crowd ahead. I almost make it.

Until he steps out of the bar and into my path, girls under each arm.

Hitting the hard wall of muscles steals the last of my breath.

Thanks, Newton. I knew I never liked physics.

“Hello, Solnyshko. Looks like you could use some help,” Mikhail Sokolov says as he lets go of his girls and grabs my upper arms to steady me.

I’m screwed.

Totally and utterly screwed.

Why did I think staying in my dorm on a Friday was lame?


Julie, Bethany, and Tara! And thanks for being a part of Favorite Lines Friday!
