In our Facebook group a couple of weeks ago, listener Annamarie suggested we do an episode about Opening Lines and Closing Lines. We thought that was a great idea, so here you go!

One thing that became clear as we did this episode is how often, with her Closing Lines, Nora gives us subtle clues as to how a book helped Eve grow as a character. Why is it that so many people ignore this and keep insisting that Eve never grows.

Tara points out that so many of the book Opening Lines are pretty gruesome, and how those books really shouldn’t be suggested as the first book to introduce someone to the series.

Also, Tara likes the Closing Lines where there’s some interaction between Eve and Roarke, such as at the end of “Purity in Death,” where Roarke tells her: “You’re a hell of a cop.”

No surprise, but AJ really dislikes the Closing Line of “Salvation in Death,” because she doesn’t understand why Eve is so fascinated and intrigued by Father Lopez.

“Immortal in Death” wins the prize for the book with the Opening and Closing lines that go the best together, and that’s why those lines are very popular with readers.

It’s a really good episode, and I think looking at Opening and Closing Lines gave us a really interesting perspective on this series.
