First Line Fridays – Love in Three-Quarter Time


Hi folks! Today we have a special edition theme. Short month…Short Book. I choose this particular Novella to feature because it releases on Valentine’s Day. I am SO excited for this story!!! Rachel McMillan is a FABULOUS author and I just adore her. You can pre-order this story for less than $2! I highly encourage you to do so.

Today’s First Line is From…
Love in Three Quarter Time
by Rachel McMillan

Love in Three Quarter Time


If Evelyn Watt’s life were projected on a movie screen, it might look like the strand of Laura Linney’s story in Love, Actually. Not that she was far from home or responsible for an ill relative; rather, every time Rudy Moser walked by her cubicle, she touched up her lip gloss and melted into a puddle of idiot.

  1. I’ve pre-ordered mine! Love that first line, too. 🙂

    I’m in historical fiction lover’s heaven this week, with the first line from Jocelyn Green’s “A Refuge Assured” on my blog, and the first line from Kristy Cambron’s “The Lost Castle” below:

    “Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”

    I’ll leave you to ponder that thought. 🙂


  2. I’ve not yet had the pleasure of reading Rachel’s books. I’ve added this one to my Goodreads.

    March 1936

    A long black train scrapes across Mr. Sutton’s fields. – Into the Free by Julie Cantrell

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!


  3. This sounds like a great read! Adding it to my TBR!

    I’m sharing Be the Hands and Feet by Nick Vujicic on my blog today, but the first line that I’ll share here is The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano. Loving this book so far!

    “Three hours in Saturday night dinner service and she was already running on fumes.”

    Happy reading! 🙂


  4. Putting Rachel’s book on my list! Happy Friday! My first line is from Kizzie’s Kisses by Zina Abbott:

    “Kizzie Atwell felt her breathing become more labored.”


  5. Ha ha. “a puddle of idiot” I love it.

    I’m sharing the first line from Anne Mateer’s No Small Storm over on my blog, so I’ll share a different line here. It’s from A Bride At Last by Melissa Jagears:
    September 1885
    At the sound of running footsteps, Kate Donovan glanced up from dumping mop water in the alleyway outside the school building.
    Happy weekend!

  6. I pre-ordered Love in Three Quarter Time a while ago, just waiting for it to arrive on my Kindle.
    I totally missed FLF as I thought it was Saturday, all day yesterday!


  7. This sounds like a great novella! I will have to order it. 😊

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first lines from the three novellas in A Night in Grosvenor Square. It’s a new Timeless Regency Collection. I’m 1/2 way done, and I’m loving it so much. Currently, I’m starting chapter 5 in the second story, so I’ll share that first line here:

    “In spite of Anne’s attempts to distract herself from thoughts of Davis Whitledge, hours of repetitive work allowed her mind to drift.”
