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: 

  Diamond in the Rough
by Jen Turano

And the first line is...

New York City

November 1885

"And smidgen of hope that her entrance into New York high society would be deemed a rousing success died the moment Miss Poppy Garrison's tiara became firmly attached to the sleeve of her dance partner."  

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 Good Friday!

    This is a hilarious first line. I'm definitely going to have to check this one out.

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the first line from The Truth in Tiramisu by Rachael Bloome:

    "Every time Eliza Carter closed her eyes, she saw his face."

    Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend :)

  2. My book this week is THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE MOOR by Michelle Griep.
    March 1861 Dartmoor Prison, Devon, England

    Death prowled the cell block like a dark animal seeking prey— especially the weakest.

    Jen’s books are always good for a laugh!

    1. I can't wait to read Michelle Griep's new book! Happy reading Paula!

  3. Loved this book! Happy Friday! My first line is from "The Color of Love" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Charles Beaumont Allerton Junior tugged at the hem of his button-up shirt, hoping to work out some of the wrinkles that his rapid - and poor - packing job had created."

    1. Great first line--love the descriptive words--happy reading Becky!

  4. Happy Friday!
    Today I'm sharing from chapter 27 in The Happy Camper by Melody Carlson.
    "Still needing to get groceries for tonight's dinner with Jordan, Dillon was tempted to skip the Silver Slipper altogether."
    Hope you have a great Easter weekend. 🙂❤📖

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch but I'm currently reding The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner so I'll share the first line from chapter 11 here: "Since our Sunday lunch had been so rudely interrupted by, you know…reality, Ben and I decided our first date called for a do-over." Happy reading!

  6. Another great first line--love the narrative--happy reading Jolene!
