First Line Fridays

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a lovely week.  Has it gotten cold where you live?  It is super chilly here today, and I think that winter and Jack Frost have finally come to stay.  Do you enjoy the cold weather?  I confess I prefer the sunny days of summer where I can wear my flip-flops and coconut scented perfume.  :)  However, cold weather does bring toasty fires and hot cocoa with it--so it is all good in the end.  :) 

It's time for another first line from a Christmas book I recently purchased.  I try to always read a Christmas book or two this time of the year.  Please be sure to check out the book lines from these other amazing bloggers too:

Today I am going to post a line from:
One Enchanted Christmas 
by Melissa Tagg 
And the first line is...
"Once upon a time--specifically, last December--author Maren Grant had what she thought might be the most perfect night of her life."  
  Happy reading and have a fabulous Friday! 


  1. I loved One Enchanted Christmas! Mine is: "Wounded soldiers returned from war as heroes. Wounded nurses returned as old maids." From The Thorn Healer by Pepper Basham.

    1. That is a very interesting thought--I've been reading Bad Day for a Bombshell, so I've been thinking a lot about World War 2 lately.

  2. "Jane Fairmont Bell sat alone in the keeper's lodge she had once shared with her husband." - The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen. I am hoping to read One Enchanted Christmas soon!

    1. I pre-orderd this book, and it came in the mail yesterday! I can't wait to read it! What an interesting opening line...where is the husband?

  3. I almost stepped on it.
    ~Ordinary Snowflakes by Jennifer Rodewald

  4. It's FINALLY cold here! Like, today. haha!

    1. Yes! I have a little heater that sits next to my desk---I had to turn it on today. :)

  5. Reagan McAdams had been gone more than a decade when Rachel resurrected her.

    I'm reading my editor Robin Patchen's new book, Convenient Lies.
    Your blog is lovely :)

  6. My book this week is Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me and the first line from Chapter 24 'Now What?' is:

    "The degree to which David has deviated from L. Ron Hubbard's management directives since he took power in the 1980s has had several consequences that I don't think he ever predicted."

    Happy Friday!

    1. Wow...that sounds intense. Consequences always follow our choices and actions--sometimes it would be nice to know what those are before we made the mistakes.
