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: 

  God Rest Ye Merry Spinster
by Rebecca Connolly

And the first line is...

There is nothing like family at the holidays.  Truly.  Nothing at all.  

The Spinster Chronicles, 4 December 1819

"Christmas at Deilingh was at once the best and worst time of her life."  

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. My first line is from Collateral Damage by Lynette Eason:
    Forward Operating Base camp Charles. Afghanistan, September
    Sergeant First Class Asher James stared at Captain Phillip Newell, sure that he’d heard wrong.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "A Family to Call Ours" by Merrillee Whren:

    "The sideways rain drenched Caleb Fitzpatrick as he slogged down Maine Street."

    1. Slogged...what a descriptive word! Happy reading Becky!

  3. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first line from A Girl's Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate: "Samuel Payton was an idiot." 🤣

  4. Happy Friday!
    On my blog I'm sharing the first line from Lone Star Ranger by Renae Brumbaugh Green: I'm currently on chapter 6, so I'll share the first line from there.
    "Easy, now," Elizabeth whispered, working to keep fear from her voice.
    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📖

  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from Guarded by Sara Davison on my blog today, so here’s a semi-random line from Chapter 8:

    “I don’t do relationship advice, so you, Nicole, and God are going to have to work this out amongst yourselves.”
