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: 

  Texas Cinderella
by Winnie Griggs

And the first line is...

Turnabout, Texas
August 1898

"Cassie Lynn Vickers stopped at the doorway to the parlor and smiled at the woman seated in her wheelchair.  'Mrs. Flanagan, I'm about to head out for my afternoon walk.  I left a pitcher of lemonade and a slice of pie on the kitchen table.  Is there anything else you need before I go?'"

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 "Let It Be Me" by Becky Wade:

    "Mom and Dad are not my biological parents."

    1. That's an eye-opener for a first line! Happy reading Becky!

  2. Happy Friday!
    I'm sharing the first line from Carolyn Miller's Dusk's Darkest Shores: Currently I'm reading Royal Decoy by Heather Frost, so I'll share from there.
    "This is absurd!" Serene burst out. "I don't need a decoy."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. Thanks Nicole! I love Carolyn Miller's books! Happy reading!

  3. Happy Saturday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M. White. "He was a prince at sea. That's what John Mucknell shouted whenever battle was upon him."

  4. My first line is from Dusk’s Darkest Shores by Carolyn Miller:
    Amberly, Lake District, England. March 1811

    Music and laughter swirled through the assembly room, a shiney animated scene within a life-sized bauble.
