First Line Fridays


I'm excited to share this week's book, because it is a new story by Joanne Bischof!  Of course, I am still probably one of the few that has not had a chance to read her book The Lady and the Lionheart.  Trust me though, it is definitely on my top ten list of books to read next.  I hope all of you are having a lovely week and that spring has finally sprung in your area!  :)

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Sons of Blackbird Mountain 
by Joanne Bischof 



And the first line is...

"Aven peered down at the letter again, noted the address written in Aunt Dorothe's hand, then looked back to the wooden sign that was staked into the ground."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!  

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

  2. Happy Friday! Great first line! I need to check out this book!

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading later this month, The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan.

    There are good anniversaries, and bad anniversaries . This was a bad one and Suzanne chose to mark the moment with a nightmare.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!😊📚💖

  7. The book I'm sharing on my blog is Unblemished by Sara Ella but I'm currently reading called The Road Home by Beverly Lewis. I shared the first line last week so I'll share the first line of chapter 22 where I am right now: " The next morning, after the four o'clock milking and a nice hot breakfast, Mimi suggested Harley take a lemon pound cake over to Abram Mast's for his birthday." Cake anyone? :P (I actually don't like it though lol).

  8. This is on my to-read pile :)

    I'm sharing the very long first line from A Defense of Honor from the new Haven Manor series by Kristi Ann Hunter on my blog today. It was one of those read-in-a-day books :)

    I’m currently reading Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh, a romance about a woman wanting to reconnect with the mother who abandoned her years ago. But the first line is from the viewpoint of the hero:

    He shouldn’t be here.
    A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was.

    Have a great weekend!
