Book Beginnings: Revenge for Old Times' Sake

If it's Friday, it must be time for this week's Book Beginnings.  Here's the first sentence from Revenge for Old Times' Sake by Kris Neri, which I actually finished last night (link takes you to my review).

I never thought sex would kill me, but it nearly did.

Okay, first there's the shock that I am posting that sentence on my blog since I generally try to keep things very innocent PG around here.  But, really, with a first sentence like that, how can you not keep reading?

Well the first sentence definitely grabs your attention! I hope you enjoyed the book. I've never heard of Revenge for Old Times' Sake. I'll have to look it up on Goodreads.

Here is my sadly less exciting book beginning

I really do enjoy the series. If you like mysteries, give it a try.

That's a grabber of an opening sentence. I'll read more about the book -- I'm always looking for a new mystery series.

Here's mine on Rose City Reader.

I hope it nearly killed him because the... throws of passion.... were too much to handle!
