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: 

  Pressed for Time
by Elizabeth Craig


And the first line is...

"Beatrice grinned at her fiancé, Wyatt.  They were both reading in Beatrice's cozy living room, but Beatrice decided to break the silence for a few minutes."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!   

       
Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to

  1. Happy Friday! I’m currently reading More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer. I’m starting Chapter 23 now, so I’ll share the first line from that chapter. “Logan stood in front of the door he’d barged through as a kid and shuffled his feet.”

    1. It's so good to hear from you Anneliese! I know we've both been having technical difficulties, and it's always great to get computer stuff fixed. Happy reading friend! :)

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "The Price of Valor" by Susan May Warren:

    "As long as Hamilton Jones had breath in his body, nothing, not even tooth decay, would hurt his little girl."

  3. Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Phoebe's Secrety by Sydney Tooman Betts. " A MURDER?" squealed Augie. "A real murder?"

  4. From Backlash by Rachel Dylan:

    The incessant knocking on her condo door made Layla Karam grumble as she threw off the covers.
