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: 

  A Merry Murder
by Kate Kingsbury

 And the first line is...

"Pausing to catch her breath at the top of the backstairs, Gertie McBride shifted the pile of linens she carried higher in her arms."

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. I finally got this book today, I’ve been waiting all month:
    The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark,
    From the prologue:
    Charleston, South Carolina, 1860
    The candlelight sent a shadow of Rose up against the wooden wall. From the shadow, Rose looked taller. Stronger. Funny thing about shadows. They made even the smallest things into monsters or fairies or whatever folks wanted.
    Happy reading!

  2. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I'm sharing the first few lines from Jody Hedlund's A Cowboy for Keeps: I'm currently on chapter 17 so I'll share from there.
    "Greta hadn't been ready for their kiss to end and wanted to press into Wyatt, showing him he didn't have to stop, that he could go on kissing her for as long as he wanted."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

  3. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Runaway River by Kim D. Taylor
    "The children were finally asleep.All fifty six of them."

    Have an amazing weekend!📚

  4. Today, I'm sharing the first line from The Right Kind of Fool by Sarah Loudin Thomas. "As the sun climbed above the horizon, strokes of lavender, orange, and pink painted the awakening sky." Have a good rest of the weekend!
