First Line Fridays

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  A Provision for Love
by Heather Chapman 

And the first line is...

"Years of governesses, along with additional tutelage, served as my only preparation for the test before me.  The true sign of a refined lady rested in her ability to remain calm in the face of fire, and nothing was as fearsome as a bitter woman."  

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! My first line is from "Cold Pursuit" by Gayla K. Hiss:

    "Faith Chandler stared at the man walking in the distance."

  2. Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I'm currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: "Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    1. I love the title of that book...The Telegraph Proposal. :) And that first line could mean so many things! Happy reading Becca!

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today I'm sharing the first line from Son of the Father by Andrew Stone: I'm currently reading Fire Storm by Nancy Mehl so I'll share a line from there.

    "When Jason came over to fix supper that night, Kaely told him about the assignment with Omaha."

    I hope you have a relaxing weekend. 🙂❤📖

  4. An intriguing opening line!

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Dancing at Daybreak by Valerie Comer.

    “Mama, why don’t you live here anymore?”

    1. That's so sad! I wonder what the character said that? Happy reading Narelle!

  5. That definitely ends with a hook! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  6. Wow, that line is so true! Happy reading Jolene!
