    Happy Friday!

    My first line is from Pepper Basham’s Charming the Troublemaker:

    “Loser ex-husbands and freezing January afternoons left a nasty chill.”

    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Sarah Monzon’s latest book just released this week; “The Esther Paradigm”. I’m just over half-way through the book, and I’m loving the story. But you’ll have to go over there to read the first line for The Esther Paradigm. Here I’ll share with you the first line from an older favorite.

    Bedford, England — May 1659
    “The babe’s crying would rip her heart to shreds if she had to listen to it one more minute.” — The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund

    Happy Friday!

    My first line is “Sometimes leading also means following. Sometimes being first means you actually arrive second.” Service Tales by Ace Collins

    Oh, that sounds amazing!!

    My first line comes from Masquerade by Janette Rallison. This is a re-read for me of this fun book.

    “Opportunity didn’t knock for Slade Jacobson – it rang his cell phone at 10:34 pm while he was putting his daughter to bed for the third time.”

    I can’t wait to read this book!!!

    Happy Friday!!! Today, I’m showcasing A Mother For His Family by Susanne Dietze. So here I will share the first two lines from the novel next in line on my review pile, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan.

    “You can’t call that a settlement offer.” Kate Sullivan looked directly into the dark eyes of her opposing counsel, who represented a medical device company.

    I’m looking forward to reading this one!

    I’m featuring the first line from Pepper Basham’s ‘Charming the Troublemaker’ on my blog, but I’m going to leave you with the first line of a book I’ll be reviewing tomorrow, ‘The Bachelor Missions’ by Jes Drew:

    “One bulky figure stands alone in the rain, keeping his head down–his identity obscured by a hat and large raincoat.”

    What a poignant – and true – first line! To read history, you’d think it was all men except for the occasional queen and prostitute.

    I’m sharing from Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter on my blog today, and I’m currently reading the Regency Brides collection. Here’s the first line to the second novella in the book, Masquerade Melody by Angela Bell:

    Whoever coined the phrase to “bite one’s tongue” was sorely mistaken in believing that silence inflicted mere physical harm.

  9. Rebecca November 4, 2017 @ 1:47 pm

    Isaiah’s Daughter is one of my current reads! 🙂

    I’m featuring The Princess Bride on my blog, but I’m currently reading Meg Mitchell & the Secret of the Journals by Kimberly McNeil so I’ll share that here.

    If I say I go to the White Raven for the food, I’d be lying, and I’m a journalist, which means I don’t lie.

    Happy Friday!

    Love that first line and am looking forward to reading this one soon.

    The first line of the book I’m currently reading is:

    England, December 23, 1813
    Holly Gray’s courage faded with every step she took deeper inside the castle conservatory where, according to Grandfather’s stories, a ghost resided.

    Christmas Secrets by Donna Hatch
