First Line Fridays


As promised, here is another Christmas story.  :)  How many of you are still watching Christmas movies and have your Christmas decorations up?  I know I can raise my hand for both of those categories.  :)  Christmas music will still be playing from my speakers on January 31st too--I do love this time of the year, and I always wish it could last longer. 

What did you enjoy most about this Christmas season?  For me, there are so many things to pick from, but I would probably pick celebrating my grandparents' birthdays.  I hope every day of December was wonderful this year and that each of you had a lovely Christmas holiday!  Happy New Year! 

  Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  A Yorkshire Christmas 
by Kate Hewitt 
 
 

And the first line is...

"How to Have a Perfect Christmas.  Claire Lindell's mouth twisted cynically as she read the heading of the article in the airline magazine."


Happy reading, happy Friday, and Happy New Year!  


Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books  to see who else is participating!

  1. Happy Friday Heather!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading and reviewing soon, A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand.

    Elsie Stutzman forced a smile and took the last bite of asparagus potato raisin casserole on her plate. She swallowed decisively, and it slid down her throat like a cup of wet cement.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    Happy New Year!

  3. I will have to check out this book.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Would-be Mistletoe Wife by Christine Johnson.

    “Louise Smythe spotted her quarry and motioned her students to follow her across the sand dune.”

    This is a fun & interesting read about lighthouses and the Chicago Fire! Happy New Year!!!

  5. Happy New Year Heather!

    Eleanor and I are home in MN for two weeks for winter break and it is an absolute dream. We only get to come a few times a year so I treasure this time especially. We've had a wonderful Christmas with family and are getting to relax and be lazy and read A LOT!

    I'm sharing the first line from Nicole Deese's novel, A Season to Love, on my blog. I'm just starting chapter 23, so I will share the first line from this chapter here:

    "I dreamed of coffee: dark and rich and boldly brewed."

    A great dream to me!!! Hope you have a great weekend, and a happy New Year. 😊
