This week I wanted to highlight a book that was written by one of our very own First Line Friday participants! I'm so excited to announce her book--Reluctant to Wed by Anneliese Dalaba. I have her book on my Kindle, and I cannot wait to read it. So many books to read...the struggle is real. :) I hope all of you are having a lovely summer. Stay cool and happy reading!
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!
Today I am going to post a line from:
Reluctant to Wed
by Anneliese Dalaba
And the first line is...
"Sitting in her grandfather's traveling coach, Emma suddenly felt the impact of her decision."
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!
Happy Friday!😎 Ohhhhhhh I want to read this one now!! Great choice Heather!ReplyDelete
My First Lines come from If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren.......
“Watching you die is the last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning.” Sierra said it in a low mutter, nearly under her breath, but Ian heard it anyway, a slash across his chest, right between the ribs.
Have a great weekend, stay cool, and Happy Reading!😊💖📚
Thanks Susan! Your book choice sounds super interesting too! This is another book to add to my Amazon wish list. :) Happy reading!Delete
Happy Friday! My first line is from Susan May Warren's book "The Heat is On".ReplyDelete
"Skye Doyle was going to get everyone killed."
Oh my goodness! Why?! Happy reading Becky!Delete
Happy Friday! My first line comes from Dreaming Spies by Laurie R. King....ReplyDelete
"It's a rock, Holmes"
Lol...I don't know if that first line was supposed to be funny, but it made me laugh. :) It reminds me of Watson and Sherlock Holmes too. Happy reading Caryl!Delete
That sounds ominous! My first line is from The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall. “To put it as simply as possible: this is the story of a polygamist who has an affair.”ReplyDelete
I know...I can't wait to see what happens next! Happy reading Amy!Delete
Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Woman of Clay by Linda Caddick. I'm currently on chapter 11, so I will share the first line from this chapter.
"Spring burst almost overnight in a full palette of brilliant colour, transforming the world into one which barely resembled the one Shana had inhabited just a week or two before."
Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with great reading time! 😁❤📚
Thanks Nicole! The wonder of spring...beautiful first line! Happy reading!Delete
Heather, thank you SO much!!! I'm excited that you plan to read my novel. My second one in this series will be out in October. On my blog, I’m featuring The Purchased Bride by Kit Morgan. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Four of that novel. “Herman Mayer wasn’t the brightest or the nicest man around, and he knew it.” Wishing you a great Friday!ReplyDelete
You're welcome Anneliese! Congratulations on your second novel too! Happy Friday!Delete
Happy Friday :)ReplyDelete
Reluctant to Wed sounds like an interesting Regency historical romance. The opening lines hook me as a reader and I want to read more.
This week's FLF is Jen Turano's A Match of Wits. I'm also reading Roseanna M. White's Circle of Spies from the Culper Ring Series:
"Marietta Hughes was the worst widow in the history of mourning."
Hope you have a nice weekend :)
I love this first line, and I want to know what happens next! Why was she a terrible widow? What a perplexing thought! Happy reading Caitlin!Delete
This looks like an interesting read.ReplyDelete
I'm sharing about "Trials of the Mighty" by Kenyon T. Henry on the blog today, but I'm currently reading "Unafraid" by Carey Scott. I'll share the first line of chapter two.
Authentic living. What does it even mean?
Have a great weekend and happy reading!
Very thought-provoking first line--"To be, or not to be, that is the question"--William Shakespeare. At least that is what this line made me think of. :) Happy reading Rebecca!Delete
Happy Reading Heather, have a lovely weekend!ReplyDelete
You too Sarah! Happy reading!Delete
i have so many questions after that first line!!!!!ReplyDelete
Me too Rachel! Happy reading!Delete
Oh, I need to know more!! I’m sharing from A Rebel Heart by Beth White on my blog today, here’s the first line of Chapter 2:ReplyDelete
“Spyglass pressed to his good eye, Daughtry crouched behind a tree at the edge of the creek running through Buckner’s Ravine.”
Happy reading and have a great weekend!
That is a wonderful book! Happy reading Yvette!Delete
Congratulations to Anneliese!ReplyDelete
I’m sharing from Open Circle by Stacy Monson on my blog.
But Then There Was You by Kara Issac has just won the 2018 RITA Award for Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements from Romance Writers of America, so I'm going to share the first line to celebrate Kara's win:
Paige McAlister didn’t think think it was possible, but there was something worse than being single and thirty at your nineteen-year-old sister’s wedding.
Great first line--I want to know what is worse?! :) Happy reading Iola!Delete
Oh yay! A fellow FLFer! Thanks for sharing, Heather!ReplyDelete
My pleasure! Have a lovely day Beth!Delete
