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: 

  Lavender Blue Murder 
by Laura Childs 

And the first line is...

"Summer no longer held sway in the low country of South Carolina.  Golds and russets had replaced vivid greens, while a cerulean blue sky offered the promise of cooler weather."  

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. Such a vivid line!! I love it! Happy Friday!!!

  2. Happy Friday!

    That's a very atmospheric first line, and it definitely sets up the beautiful setting of the book.

    On my blog today, I'm sharing the first line from Dancing With Fireflies by Denise Hunter:

    "Jade McKinley lowered the stove to medium and returned the chicken breasts to the pan."

    I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray: It's a really fun read. I'm currently on chapter 12, so I'll share from there.
    "By the time Saturday rolls around, I'm convinced that Father Time has a master's degree in torture."
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

  4. Set The Stars Alight by Amanda Dykes
    Candlewick Commons London, England. 2000
    To step inside the watchmaker’s cottage was to step outside of time.

    1. I love books that are set in England! Happy reading Paula!

  5. Happy Friday!!
    Over on my blog my first line is from A Bride's Journey to Colorado Territory by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer.
    "I said you need to stay away from him, Sister"

    Have an amazing weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from “A Heart Renewed” by author Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Carter Ward stared at the woman in front of him, a sick feeling in his stomach.”

    1. Oh goodness! I wonder what happens next? Happy reading Becky!

  7. Those are beautiful written first lines. I can see fall in my mind. My current read is Practically Married by Karin Beery. I'm just starting the second chapter, so I will share the first line of that chapter. "The sharp edge of reality sliced through Russ' heart." May you have a blessed week, Heather.
