First Line Friday #100

Happy Friday! The book I'm featuring today is Love in Lead by Kari Trumbo. This is book 3 in the Seven Brides of South Dakota Series.

First Line:

Eva hid in a cedar thicket. It was a skill she'd honed to perfection.

Description on Amazon:

He found her at her worst, can she love him at his?

Eva Arnsby can’t stay indoors, her need to draw the woodland creatures around her home near Lead, South Dakota gets her in a heap of trouble. And none more troublesome than a shadowy stranger who steals her notebook and her spirit.

Ranger, Captain George Roth, is suspicious when he finds a small woman in man’s trousers sneaking around in the woods. Determined to discover the woman’s secrets, he takes on an assignment, ready to investigate her under the guise of a harmless town dandy.

A chameleon in a suit, Mr. George Roth is asking too many questions, and wearing too many masks. Despite Eva’s reluctance, they work together, and soon, she sees parts of George she can’t resist. Shouldn’t she follow her heart? But when the mask slips, and Eva realizes George isn’t who she thinks he is, the damage to her heart may never be mended. 

One lie will break them apart, and George must convince her that the man she fell for in Lead is the same man who loved her in the woods. 

My Thoughts:

Since this is my current read and I'm only in Chapter 11, I cannot tell you a whole lot about the book yet. However, this is the third book I've read in this series and I can tell already that it's going to be another good one. George is suspicious of Eva's actions. How foolish will he feel when he realizes how innocent she is. His cynical mind has definitely led him down the wrong path. I only wonder how long before he realizes it.

I have definitely been pulled into the story right from the start. Their first encounter was not a good one. And since Eva fell unconscious before getting a good glimpse of Captain Roth, she has no idea that he's the same man when he disguises himself to investigate her. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the rest of this book.
