Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  The Runaway Bride
by Jody Hedlund

And the first line is...

Vancouver Island
September 18, 1862

"Today she might meet the man she'd marry."  

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. This Bride book should be in my mail box soon!

    My first line is from IF I WERE YOU. By Lynn Austin:
    Prologue. London, November, 1945
    Eve Dawson bolted upright in bed.

    1. That's exciting--I love getting book mail! Lynn Austin is one of my favorite authors--happy reading Paula!

  2. Ooooo, that sounds promising! Have a great weekend!!

    1. Thanks Donna! Have a lovely weekend too and happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday!!
    Over on my blog I shared the first line from the Mayflower Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse
    "A splinter of wood pierced Mary Elizabeth Chapman's thumb as she crept behind her lifelong friend Dorothy Raynsford."

    I have the third book in the series to review I need to get the first two so I can get the whole story! This sounds good!

    Have a great Friday!

    1. I love reading books that are a part of a series! Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Murder in the Family” by Ramona Richards:

    ” ‘Aunt Liz, you can’t keep doing this. It’s going to get you killed.’ And it had.”

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from At Love's Command by Karen Witemeyer:
    "According to the Good Book, there was a time for war and a time for peace."
    Have a great weekend! 😃❤📚

    1. Thank you so much Nicole! Have a lovely weekend too and happy reading!

  6. I LOVED The Runaway Bride! Can't wait for the next book in that series. Today, I'm sharing the first line from Coming Home to Maverick by Sophia Summers: "Maverick dipped his hat lower against the hot Texas sun. A man's hat could hide a lot of things, unfortunately, not everything."
