Today I am going to post a line from:
by Laurie Cass
And the first line is...
"I stood at the kitchen window, staring out into the backyard as January's chill seeped through the glass and into my bones."
Happy reading and happy Friday!

Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Express Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower) by Kimberley Woodhouse.ReplyDelete
Here I'll share the first line from chapter sixteen of the book I'm currently reading:
"Footsteps signaled someone's approach, and Grace paused her kneading in the pre-dawn morning, waiting for the customary greeting from one of the brothers."
Four Dreams of You by Sondra Kraak
Can't wait to read The Express Bride! Happy reading Trisha!Delete
Happy Friday! I haven't started this yet, but my first line (well - 2 lines) is from "Margin of Error" by Christy Barritt:ReplyDelete
"Hunger and anger battled inside him like two storm fronts colliding. A violent friction clashed in his very soul."
Starting a new books is always so exciting! Happy reading Becky!Delete
Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/25/first-line-friday-95/. I'm currently reading Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett, so I'll share the first line from there.
"Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge."
Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚
Great first line--I think many of us have wished were in the midst of something nice than our present circumstances. :) Happy reading Nicole!Delete
Today on my blog I shared the first line from A Lady's Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson but it's also the book I'm about to dig into so no extra line yet. Hope you have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
This looks like an interesting book. Happy reading Becca!Delete

Great author--happy reading Jolene!Delete
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken today. Here is the first line from Chapter 2:ReplyDelete
“The factory rose above with row upon row of sharp-edged bricks.”
It's so exciting to see all the new books coming out! Happy reading Yvette!Delete
It always feels so wrong to read about chill in January. Lol. January is very hot in Australia!ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend!
Haha...I know--I need to learn more about your seasons. :) Happy reading Katie!Delete
That first line sounds a lot more ominous than the cute cat on the cover!ReplyDelete
I'm sharing the first line of Under a Camperdown Elm by Janet Chester Bly on my website today, but my current read is Love and Other Mistakes by debut Australian author Jessica Kate. Here's the first line:
"Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&Ms on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions."
Haha...I agree Iola. And I love this first line, but now I want some M&Ms. :) Happy reading!Delete
A cute cover. ;) I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller.ReplyDelete
It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one’s existence.
Another great author--happy reading Narelle!Delete
