First Line Fridays

Happy Friday friends!  I was looking at all the books on Amazon the other day, and I purchased a few new Kindle books--when they are $.99 you just have to!  At least, that is what makes sense to me.  :)  So today's book is one I ordered, and I'm excited to read it.  I don't think I have read anything by this author before--maybe in a novella collection--but I'm not sure.  Have you read any books by this author, and if so which stories?  Also, what periods of history do you most enjoy reading and learning about?  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: 

  Give Me Thine Heart 
by Andrea Boeshaar

And the first line is...

"My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways." 
Proverbs 23:26 

Kingsley Manor 
Periwick, England 
July, 1814

"Ladies in pastel gowns of pink, green, and blue skipped by as the orchestra played a lively tune."  

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!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It's a really good book! I'm currently on chapter 25, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. 😀❤📚

    1. Haha...this line made me laugh. :) Thanks Nicole--happy weekend and happy reading!

  2. Today on my blog I'm featuring the first line from No Greater Love by Gina Holder but It's also my current read so I'll share the first line from chapter 15 here: "Kathleen tucked her legs under the steering wheel of her rental." Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Edge of Truth" by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    "The hair on Kara Nelson's neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn't right."

    1. Oh my goodness! What happened next?! Happy reading Becky!

  4. I am still reading the same book as last week, Hello Again by Heather Tullis. I am currently on chapter 29 so I will share that first line here: “In the morning as Piper got ready for work she glanced out the window and noticed Spencer’s carpool ride was pulling up to the building. I hope you have a nice weekend!

    1. Thanks Ellie--great line! I don't know if it is supposed to be, but it sounds suspenseful. :) Happy reading!

  5. Happy Friday! Andrea Boeshaar is an author I've yet to read. I'm sharing from The Crossing at Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman on my blog today. I'm only a few pages in, and this is my favorite line so far:

    "Her stomach did a slow roll at the unexpected lilt of an Irish brogue."

    1. I understand that sentence. :) Happy reading Yvette!

  6. A nice opening line. :)

    Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet W. Ferguson.

    Love, like art, took on different forms with each creator.

  7. Thanks Jolene! Happy reading to you too!
