First Line Fridays – Special Edition – Where the Fire Falls

Happy Friday my friends!

Today’s special edition is the First Line from an author whose books you haven’t read yet. I am sharing a book by Karen Barnett that I recently won in a giveaway. I am super excited to read this series! I can’t believe I haven’t read any of Karen’s books yet! Eeep! – Rach

Today’s First Line comes from

  1. Ah, that was a lucky win! The first book in the series (don’t worry about the order) is really good, too!

    I just now saw that this is a “special edition” friday, and the book I am sharing works for it! I’ve never read anything by Charles Portis before, though I have seen the Kim Darby/John Wayne movie version of True Grit.

  2. Enjoy your win!

    I’m featuring lines from Julia Wolf’s Cut Free on my blog today.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Susan Stoker’s Defending Allye.

    “So I’ll see you back at the rendezvous point, right?” Black asked.
    “Absolutely,” Gray told his friend and partner as he readied himself to slip over the side of the fiberglass boat into the Pacific Ocean.

  3. My First line is from Death At Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering

    Madeline Farthering gripped her husband’s arm a little more tightly as they made their way through the mass of people crowding Waverley Station, certain that if they were separated in the chaos she’d never be able to find him again.

  4. Happy Friday! 😎

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading soon, Through the Autumn Air by Kelly Irvin…….

    At what point did a person realize that the special moments in life streak by in a flash, distilled into memories before they could be truly lived? Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖

    The book I am sharing on my blog today is A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal but the book I’m currently reading is The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright. Since it was my FLF last week I’ll share the first line from chapter 20 where I am now: “‘You know you live in a creepy old house, don’t you?’ Christen stood from her chair at the kitchen table and retrieved the bag of mint Oreos from the counter.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

  6. Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 2 and the little poem before) is from “A Little Ray of Sunshine” by Kimberly Rae Jordan.

    “(Shadows around me, shadows above me
    Never conceal my Savior and Guide:
    He is the light, in Him is no darkness,
    Ever I’m walking close to His side.)

    Ryan McFadden looked at each of the men gathered around the large boardroom table. He searched the familiar faces for any sign of the unease that sat so heavy in his gut.”

  7. Where the Fire Falls is such a great story!!!

    On my blog, I’m shared the first line from Kim Vogel Sawyer’s upcoming novel Ours For a Season. Right now, I’m just finishing up As the Tide Comes In by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall. I’m going to share the first line from chapter 36 here:

    “Luella drove toward church as Tara fidgeted with notes to her speech.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time! 😃📚
