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: 

  Christmas at Whitefriars
by Elizabeth Camden



And the first line is...

Yorkshire England, 1912

"'Are you sure you want to do this?' Nick asked as he prepared to fuse the pipe joints.  'As soon as I solder the pipe in, there's no turning back.  The tower will get hot water, and your washroom gets nothing.  We can't heat both.'" 

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 am sharing the first line from More Than We Remember by Christina Suzann Nelson: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/01/24/first-line-friday-120/. It's definitely an emotional read! I'm currently on chapter 16, so I will share the first line from there.
    "'Are you kidding me?' Emilia slammed down the phone."

    I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fun reading time!

  3. I’m sharing the first line from The Bright Unknown on my blog today, however I’m currently reading Her Rocky Mountain Hope by Mindy Obenhaus so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Boy, he needed a haircut.” I hope you have a good weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green but the book I'm just about to start is The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay so I'll share that first line here: "People parted around us in the courtyard." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  5. Read yours before Christmas . Elizabeth Camden is a favorite.
    My first line is from End Game by Rachel Dylan:
    “I think they may be keeping dead bodies in their condo.”
