First Line Fridays

I just found this book entitled Tea Shop Folly by Carrie Fancett Pagels.  Of course, any title with the word tea in it I must add to my reading list.  :)  This is a new author for me, so I am excited to read her novel.  Oh, I have been busy reading and writing these last few weeks, and I have posted several new pieces, a book review, book spotlight, book giveaway, Daily Megaphone, so please be sure to check them out.  Also, I will have two new book reviews posted by the end of the month.  As always, please be sure to check out the book lines from these other amazing bloggers too:

Today I am going to post a line from:

Tea Shop Folly

And the first line is...

"Stale odors of pipe smoke mingled with aging leather and dried flowers in dire need of replacing at the elderly attorney's office."

Happy reading and Happy Friday!


  1. Happy Friday! Tea Shop Folly was a fun read!
    My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Without Warning:
    “I had never been in the Oval Office before.
    But I’d always imagined my first time going differently.”

  2. I was staring out of the classroom window and daydreaming of adventure when I spotted the flying saucer. - Armada by Ernest Cline.

    Happy w/end!

  3. I enjoy Carrie's stories!

    Claire Murray headed for the barn, a burst of cold air lifting her long blonde hair and tossing it into her face. – To Dance with Dolphins by Bonnie Leon
