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: 

  Buried to the Brim
by Jenn McKinlay


And the first line is...

"If I held my left hand just so, I could see the diamonds catch and scatter the light, even the dreary February light in London, into a million rainbows.  I.  Scarlett Parker, was engaged to be married."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!

  1. This is my favorite cozy mystery series! I'm reading Set the Stars Alight by Amanda Dykes: "The smell of cinders permanently etched the abandoned Bessette Match Factory into the minds of all who passed." :)

  2. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Miss Tavistock's Mistake by Linore Rose Burkhard. "Mrs. Filbert! Only guess what I have learned from my uncle!" Miss Tavistock, the nineteen year old orphaned ward of the Duke of Trent, rushed across the great library of Toadingham to where her companion, Mrs. Filbert, lay settled upon a settee amongst layers of pillows near the fire, sniffling and sneezing."

  4. Happy Friday!
    I'm sharing the first line from Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano on my blog. I'm currently on chapter 22, so I'll share a line from there.
    "Before Norman could fully process the idea of a giggling Theo, Stanley was escorting Theo into the room, beaming a bright smile at her, one she was certainly returning."
    I hope you have a great weekend. 🙂❤📚
