First Line Fridays


Happy Friday!  I am so excited that spring is finally around the corner!  I love this time of the year, because everything is starting again.  The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the weather is perfect.  What is your favorite season and why?  Let me know in the comments below.  Happy reading friends! 

Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Murder by the Book   
by Lauren Elliott 



And the first line is...

"Addison Greybourne breathed in the intoxicating scents of tangy sea air and New England autumn leaves infused with the comforting aroma of fresh-baked bread."  

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!

  1. Happy Friday and weekend! My first line is from “KNOX: The Montana Marshalls” by Susan May Warren:

    “Oh goody, now Knox go to watch his trouble-making little brother break his ornery neck.”

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh by Carolyn Miller: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/03/14/first-line-friday-79/. I am really enjoying the story! I am currently in the middle of chapter 19, so I will leave a line from that chapter.

    "Gideon waited in the drawing room, not daring to sit down, not daring to pace as he'd like to, in case the stoic footman at the door see him and make a fuss. What was taking her so long?"

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂💜📚

  3. Today on my blog I shared the first line from Fated by Teri Terry but I'm currently reading Dead Letter by Chautona Havig. I just started so I'll share the first line from chapter 2 where I currently am: "Hard benches, spartan furnishings, packed conditions---though she'd purchased a second-class ticket as instructed, Madeline couldn't help but feel like she'd gotten little better than emigrant car accommodations." Hope you have a great weekend! Spring is in the air! :)

  4. Today I'm sharing the first line from The Memory House by Rachel Hauck:

    "She was never afraid of the dark. But the light? Now that terrified her."

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! Over on my blog I’m sharing from the first book in Robin Patchen’s Beauty in Flight trilogy. This is the first line from the second book, Beauty in Hiding:

    “Of course it was raining.”

  6. Mmm... Is there anything better than the smell of fresh bread?

    I've shared the first line from Crystal Walton's "Romancing the Conflicted Cowboy" on my blog, but since I'm reading Carolyn Miller's "A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh" right now, I'll share the first line of the scene I'm up to (in chapter 5):

    Gideon looked up from the specimen and almost dropped it.

    Have a great weekend :-)
