Book Beginnings on Friday: February 4, 2011

How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

My beginning for this week comes from These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf (ISBN 9780778328797).  Here is the first line:

I stand when I see Devin Kineally walking toward me, dressed as usual in her lawyer-gray suit, her high heels clicking against the tile floor.

This first line caught my interest. I know it doesn't directly say that Devin is a lawyer, but it infers that, and it made me wonder why the narrator is waiting for a lawyer. Great way to grab this reader from the first line!

So, what is the first line of your current read, and how did you like it? Please leave the link to your specific post, not just to the front page of your blog.
