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: 

  The Bake Shop
by Amy Clipston

And the first line is...


"Christina Kurtz watched as a car pulled up to her bake stand near the road in front of the large, white farmhouse where she'd been born and raised.  The warm early May breeze tickled her nose, and the scent of moist earth and flowers mingled with the sweet aroma of her homeade baked goods."   

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!

    I loved The Bake Shop, and consider it my favorite Amy Clipston novel of all time.

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Take a Chance on Me by Becky Wade:

    "The hospital's electronic doors whooshed open as Penelope Quinn rushed toward the emergency room."

    Have a great weekend!

    1. That's lovely to hear! I've never read anything by Amy, so I'm excited to read this story. Happy Friday!

  2. My first line is from Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters:

    Pecca Gallegos never thought she’d be turning down a marriage proposal—much less four of them.

    Just finished this wonderful book!

    1. Wow...four marriage proposals! That sounds very interesting--happy Friday Paula!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Marry Me" by Autumn Macarthur:

    "The intercom on the hospital room wall beeped, interrupting Melanie and Alia's fast and furious clapping game and their storm of giggles."

  4. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin today. Here is the first line from chapter 3:

    "It wasn't easy to open the front door of my cottage with a bread bowl of stew in my hands and a jug of milk under one arm. But I managed."

    1. Oh my goodness, that would be a funny sight! Happy Friday Yvette!

  5. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White: "A stranger stalking down the street shouldn't make her hands tremble in anticipation."

  6. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett but right now I'm reading Labeling Lincoln by Stephenia H McGee so I'll share the first line from chapter 2 here: George struggled to keep his composure as they led him deeper into the bowels of the prison." Happy reading this weekend!

  7. Thank you Nicole! Same to you and happy Friday!
