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: 

  Secrets of My Heart
by Tracie Peterson

And the first line is...

Portland, Oregon
March 1879

"'Oh, my poor dear Mrs. Pritchard,' the older woman declared as soon as Nancy opened the front door." 

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. Hello! 🙂
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from If I Were You by Lynn Austin. I'm currently on chapter 11, so I'll share from there.
    "USA 1950
    Eve barely slept."
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  2. Happy Friday! :) Today on my blog, I'm sharing from The Heart of a Hero by Susan May Warren. I'm currently reading Of Literature and Lattes by Katherine Reay - here's the first line: "It finally happened. Spring arrived in Winsome, Illinois."

    Have a great weekend, and happy reading!

    1. Thanks Jen! That's a great title for a book--happy reading!

  3. I’m sharing the first line from Stay With Me by Becky Wade on my blog today. “Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a house he owned.” Happy weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Doesn't She Look Natural?" by Angela Hunt:

    "A grieving woman, I've decided, is like a creme brulee: she begins in a liquid state, endures a period of searing heat, and eventually develops a scablike crust."

  5. Well I wonder what she looked like when she opened the door! Have a good weekend!

  6. On my blog I shared the first line from Forever Home by Amy Grochowski
    "A sensible Amish woman aspired to marry, as Lydia Miller was reminded daily."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from Stay With Me by Becky Wade: "The hallway floor jolts downward beneath my feet, throwing me off balance." Have a great weekend!
