Since I am continuing to be in the Christmas book mood, I thought I would highlight another holiday story this week. I have read several books by Melody Carlson, and while I was scrolling through Instagram the other day, I noticed that she had written a new Christmas book. :) This book is entitled A Christmas by the Sea, so it's a bit different than the traditional December setting, but it looks like a great read.
I hope that everyone is having a lovely October. What are some of your favorite fall plans? Are there any fairs or pumpkin picking in your area? 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:
A Christmas by the Sea
by Melody Carlson
And the first line is..
"Wendy Harper never considered herself a deceitful person. In fact, she was so scrupulously honest that it sometimes got her in trouble."
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 thought this book was very good -- sweet romance. Here's the first line from Lethal Target by Janice Cantore. "The dream was always so vivid for to Tess." Have a great Friday!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to read this book! It's already getting colder where I live...feels like Christmas! Happy reading Beckie!Delete
I love Melody Carlson books.ReplyDelete
My first line comes from: The Christmas Heirloom (4 different authors)
Lancashire, England (Christmas~1827)
From a purely rational standpoint, Sarah Gooding should have been ecstatic with her present position.
I just ordered this book, and it looks lovely! Happy reading Michelle!Delete
It is always fun to see what books are being shared on Friday! Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Mary Connealy's newest book "The Reluctant Warrior". Here I'll share the first line from chapter 20 of the same book.ReplyDelete
"What harebrained decision had caused John to come west working for the Chiltons?"
Harebrained...I don't see that word everyday...lol. :) Happy reading Trisha!Delete
My first lines come from the book It Started With Christmas by Jenny Hale…..
“I want to spend Christmas at the cabin.” Nana’s voice came from the dark stairway, startling Holly McAdams and making her jump as she walked in the front door, the warmth of the little house a stark contrast to the icy cold outside.
Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊🎃💕
I am so happy to see everyone posting first lines for Christmas books! :) Happy reading Susan!Delete
Happy Friday! I'm sharing from The End Begins by Sara Davison today. Here are the first lines from Chapter 1:ReplyDelete
Meryn didn't move until a loud thud and a shout from upstairs yanked her from her stunned silence. "We need to get out now."
Oh my goodness! Great first line! Happy reading Yvette!Delete
That's a pretty cover scene - totally different to how those of us Down Under experience Christmas by the sea!ReplyDelete
I've just finished reading Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh (one of those books I opened to copy the first line so I could share it, but got hooked. So now I'm sharing the first line after I've read the last. And I'm sharing a day late. #SorryNotSorry). Here's the first line:
"This is it, Lyndie. Don't blow it."
On my blog, I'm sharing from an old favourite Australian contemporary Christian romance that's recently been re-released: Return to Baragula by Mary Hawkins. I hope you get a chance to check it out.
I would love to see your Australian Christmas pictures! Please post some and happy reading Iola!Delete
This week on my blog I shared Ours for a Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer but I'm currently reading Chosen People by Robert Whitlow so here I'll share the first line from my current chapter (26): "Hana had trouble containing her excitement during her morning Skype session with Daud." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!ReplyDelete
Skype...I almost forgot about that amazing invention! Happy reading Becca!Delete
