#1LineWed - One Line: #Zombie, #Mystery, #Sci Fi Books

For this week’s #1LineWed – One Line Wednesday – I invited some writer pals of different genres to share their favorite one lines. Sounds fun, right? Enjoy!

 

 About the Book:
On a whim, as if by magic Devane came to Chicago in the dead of winter. What she finds in the windy city alters her life for eternity.

Favorite Line:
"Do you always buy your art by the pound?" Devane Redding


About the Book: 
When library staff volunteer Tanya Lipscombe, also known as "Tanya Trouble," is found murdered in her own hot tub, Alan Mersky, a veteran with PTSD is arrested. Local bookstore cafe owner Sassy Cabot knows the brother of her former boss is no murderer, and seeks to clear his name and make sure the real killer gets booked.

Favorite Line: 
"One of the ladies at Barbara Cartland let out a scream so bloodcurdling that you would think she was sitting in the first row of a 3-D movie and the ax murderer had jumped out from behind the bureau."


 Death to the Undead by Pembroke Sinclair

About the Book:
Seventeen-year-old Krista has already proven she can survive the zombie hordes.After moving to North Platte with her distant cousin General Liet to help build a wall that will keep the zombies in the West, it becomes apparent that the zombies aren’t the biggest threat—some survivors are far more dangerous than Krista had ever imagined. Caught between powerful forces, can she and Quinn survive long enough to devise a new plan and put it into action? Or will they self-destruct? 


Favorite Line:
"I knew Rome wasn’t built in a day, but I was pretty sure the zombies could destroy it in one."

 
 GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie by C.A. Verstraete

About the Book:
Becca's life is changed forever when her cousin comes home and infects her with the Z virus via an accidental scratch. Now she's part-zombie, with weird quirks, a twirly eye and a strange diet (no not "that") that no sixteen-year-old girl wants to deal with. Can she find the answers she needs before it's too late?  

Favorite Line:
"One word came to mind....horrible. If this was what happened when you came in contact with them... I shivered."

Favorite Line:
"The door opened, and there, wearing blue jeans and a Ramones T-shirt, was the most beautiful girl Brian had ever seen."




About the Book:
Tilly Breedlove has no clue what she’s in for when her father pawns her to Family Trade and Loan for six months. He's behind in his back taxes and needs a quick loan to avoid prison. It's bad enough she has to relocate, but when they station her on the moon as an exotic dancer, she wants to step out of an airlock and suck vacuum. When her father defaults on the loan, Tilly needs to make a daring escape with a few trusted friends, and somehow get even with the father who abandoned her.

Favorite Line:
