First Line Fridays — Heart’s Desire


Today’s first line is from

Heart’s Desire
by Andrea Boyd.

Heart's Desire



My First Line:

“Aiden, you have a couple of customers waiting in your office.  One of them said she’s here to buy a new car.” Lilly’s adoring grin always made Aiden feel uncomfortable.

  1. I just picked this one up the other day!

    I’m featuring the first line from Angela Hunt’s upcoming release “Judah’s Wife” on my blog this week, but right now I’m going to share the first paragraph from Christina Coryell’s newly released novella “Merried Off” (because it’s just better with the whole paragraph rather than the first line!)

    “It must be sheer ecstasy to be known not by a name first and foremost, but by a song.” Celeste Jordan sighed as she sank deeper into the scratchy cushion on the old wooden chair. “It’s tempting to choose such a song for myself, but I’m afraid it would be impossible to narrow it down. All of life is one lingering melody.”

    Such a sweet novella!

  2. Over on my blog today I’m sharing the first line from My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York by Amanda Barratt. It is scheduled to release on Jan. 1st! I’ll share with you here a book I’m currently reading – Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky
    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Happy New Year!

  3. I just got this book also! Happy Friday! My first line is from Would-be Mistletoe Wife by Christine Johnson.
    “Louise Smythe spotted her quarry and motioned her students to follow her across the sand dune.”

    This is a fun & interesting read about lighthouses and the Chicago Fire!

  4. I’m currently re-reading “The Lost Heiress” by Roseanna White. I got book three of the Ladies of the Manor series for Christmas, so am giving myself a refresher of books 1-2 before I get to the third. 😉

    First line:
    Temptation sat before her, compelling as the sea.

  5. Happy Friday!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading and reviewing soon, A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand.

    Elsie Stutzman forced a smile and took the last bite of asparagus potato raisin casserole on her plate. She swallowed decisively, and it slid down her throat like a cup of wet cement.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

  6. I will have to check this book out!

    Happy Friday!!!

    I’m sharing the first line from Nicole Deese’s novel, A Season to Love, on my blog. I’m just starting chapter 23, so I will share the first line from this chapter here:

    “I dreamed of coffee: dark and rich and boldly brewed.”

    A great dream to me!!! Hope you have a great weekend, and a happy New Year. 😊
