Happy Friday! How was everyone's Valentine's Day? I hope that you received lots of love and ate lots of chocolate. :) This week's first line comes from another book I will be reviewing in March. I am almost finished reading The Mark of the King, so I will have a review posted on my blog for that book this month.
I love books that are set in England, so I was happy to receive The Elusive Miss Ellison by Carolyn Miller in the mail. It is also set during the Regency era, so it will be equally lovely in my opinion. So I cannot wait to start reading this novel.
Besides the First Line Friday books, what other books have you been ordering and reading lately? Let me know in the comments below. I always love ordering new books! In fact, I just ordered a new book entitled Murder Wears White that Bree recommend. And as always, please be sure to check out the book lines from these other amazing bloggers too:

The Elusive Miss Ellison
by Carolyn Miller
And the first line is...
St. Hampton Heather
"'Why, Livvie! Whatever are you doing?' Lavina Ellison placed down her gardening trowel, swiped perspiration from her brow, and smiled up at her friend. 'Good Morning, Sophy.'"
Happy reading and happy Friday!
