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: 

  Quilt or Innocence 
by Elizabeth Craig 

And the first line is...

"'I've come to rescue you,' said the wild-looking woman at Beatrice's 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. Corgi! I'll read just because there's a dog on it. :)

  2. My first line is from Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason

    Chapter 2
    September. Helmed Province, Afghanistan

    Sarah Denning sat on the dirt floor of the Afghani prison cell and shivered in the hinety-degree heat, fighting the fear that had been her constant companion since the Taliban had attacked the school yesterday.

  3. Quite the interesting line! Have a good weekend!!

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

  4. I'm currently reading The London Restoration by Rachel McMillan. I'm just beginning chapter 10, so I'll share from there:
    "The only other time Diana had been at Brent's flat -her flat- in Clerkenwell alone was when she was packing her suitcase to leave for Buckinghamshire."
    I hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤📚

    1. Thanks Nicole! Buckinghamshire...what a great name. Happy reading!

  5. Happy Friday!

    That first line sounds intriguing!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Chautona Havigs' Dual Power of Convenience.
    "This isn't what I had in mind when I decided to open an mobile bookstore!"

    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thanks Kelly-Ann! A mobile bookstore...that wounds like so much fun! Happy reading!

  6. Okay, this is a little more than a first line . . . Ha! This is from the book I'll be releasing this fall, called It's a Mad, Mad Murder, the first in my Maddie Montgomery mystery series. So blessed to be writing these fun books!

    Blaze knew she needed a weapon and she needed one fast, thanks to the crash of breaking glass on the floor above her, a sound that had alerted her to the incoming danger. Yet before she went in search of some implement of self-defense, she took a protective glance at the chocolate soufflé rising nicely in the oven. Of all the rude, inconsiderate times for a mass murderer to break into her
    home . . .

    1. Hi friend, I'm so excited to read your new series! Congratulations! This is an excellent "first line." :)
