Happy Friday everyone! I hope that it has been a pleasant week, and that the beginning days of August were lovely. This week I wanted to highlight a book I randomly discovered and ordered off of Amanon. It's been awhile since I have read a book by Catherine Palmer, but this series sounded so interesting. And yes, the second book in the series is titled Wild Heather. I may have seen that book first. :)
What new books have you discovered lately? Were they from new authors or possibly older texts? Please let me know in the comments below. As always, 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:
by Catherine Palmer
And the fist line is...
Brooking House, near the village of Otley
Yorkshire, England 1815
"'At last,' Ivy Bowden said to her three younger sisters as she placed the carefully penned instructions in her small beaded handbag."
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!
I'm adding this to my TBR as well. :DReplyDelete
I’m sharing about “By the Waters of Babylon” by Mesu Andrews on the blog today, but I’m currently reading “Where the Fire Falls” by Karen Barnett so my first line will come from there.
Olivia Rutherford applied lip rouge the same way she painted -with bold, broad strokes. Anything to distract from the truth.
Happy Friday and hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with reading excellent books! 😀
Hmmm...what truth? Great first line--I want to know more! Happy reading!
Happy Friday, Heather! My first line comes from I'll See You in Paris by Michelle GableReplyDelete
GOOSE CREEK HILL
"Maybe she'll surprise us," Eric said.
Happy Friday Caryl!Delete
I love the title of this book! When I was in college, I had the lovely opportunity to visit Paris. So anything Parisian I have to check out. :) Happy reading!
My first lines come from Carolina Mercy by Regina Rudd Merrick.....
Lucy Dixon wanted it to be a bad dream, but it wasn’t. Auto pilot. It was the only way she was getting through this. Daddy was dead.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖
What a sad ending to the first line. I hope this character finds happiness in this story. Happy reading!
Happy Friday! My first line is from Other People's Children by Ellen Fannon (which I have laughed so hard through the little bit I started reading): Prologue:ReplyDelete
"Why are children so childish?" Robin groused to herself as she sat valiantly attempting to put two coherent thoughts together for her newspaper column that was due tomorrow.
Lol...this first line is hilarious! I actually heard a similar statement from someone the other day, which is even funnier. :) Happy reading Becky!Delete
I've probably read most of Catherine Palmer's books and remember enjoying that particular series. I'm always torn between the old ones I've read and the new ones yet to be discovered. On my blog, I'm featuring a new one. A Regency romance by Sally Britton, "The Gentleman Physician." I'm still reading it so I will share the first line in Chapter 20 here. "Are you going to resume glaring at Miss Devon when she returns?" Wishing you a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
I totally understand that problem! There are so many wonderful classics and books I read growing up. Yet I'm glad new stories are being written and published. :)Delete
I keep hearing about this book--I will have to check it out. Happy reading Anneliese!
Happy Friday! I'm sharing from the third Lady Alkmene Callender Cosy Mystery (this author and series are a recent discovery for me) on my blog today. Here are the first lines from the fourth, Fatal Masquerade by Vivian Conroy:ReplyDelete
"Can't this thing go any faster?" Denise Hargrove snapped at the driver. During the drive she'd consulted her watch over and over again, exuding a nervous energy Lady Alkmene Callender found hard to place.
I love Cozy Mysteries! They are some of my favorite books to read. :) Happy reading Yvette!Delete
It's been a while since I've read a Catherine Palmer book. I like the cover of that one. LOL about the title of book two... I hope you have a good weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! Have a wonderful weekend too and happy reading!Delete
