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: 

  The Hidden Staircase
by Carolyn Keene

And the fist line is...

The Haunted House 

"Nancy Drew began peeling off her garden gloves as she ran up the porch steps and into the hall to answer the ringing telephone.  She picked it up and said, 'Hello!'"

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. Happy Friday! My first line is from "When I'm with You" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Michael Reed's text alert chirped, disturbing the light sleep he'd been drifting in and out of since his alarm had gone off earlier."

  2. On my blog today, I’m featuring More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer. I’m currently reading The Case for Miracles by Lee Strobel. I’m about to begin Chapter 11, so I’ll share the first line from this chapter. “Even for a decorated cold-case homicide investigator, this was a formidable challenge.”

  3. My first line is from HER SECRET SONG by Mary Connealy:
    “March 1874. Hope Mountain
    Near Bucksnort, Colorado near Grizzly Peak, Colorado
    Wax Misley was living a life that was going to kill him.”

  4. Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line of Rocky Mountain Revelation by Lisa J. Flickinger
    "A sharp squeal pierced the air, followed by a dull thud."

    Happy Weekend!!

  5. Happy Friday! 😀
    On my blog, I'm sharing from Forgiven Again by Gina Holder. I'm currently reading The Gentleman and the Thief by Sarah M. Even, so I'll share the first line from there.
    "Hollis Darby learned two things at the knee of his not-so-dear, long-departed, low-life, scoundrel of a father: how to gamble beyond what was advisable and how to be an utter disappointment to his family."
    I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂❤📚
