  1. Beth, that is beautiful, and what a beautiful cover too! I just added Shelter of the Most High to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing that one.


  2. Happy Friday! I can’t wait for my copy of “Shelter of the Most High” to arrive. Hopefully soon!

    I’m sharing about “This Is The Day” by Tim Tebow over on my blog today. I’m currently reading “Ours for a Season” by Kim Vogel Sawyer so I’ll be sharing my first line from there.

    Marty followed her husband to the front door, keeping enough distance between them to prevent bumping her knee against the bulky suitcase that hung from his hand.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy reading!


  3. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Killer Classics by Kym Roberts……

    “Sugar did it.” Sugar’s mouth dropped open, and her eyes nearly popped out of her head at Reba Sue’s accusation. “Sugar didn’t kill anyone,” Leila argued. “The woman traps scorpions at the bar and releases them outside.” Leila shuddered, her round body jiggling from head to toe. “Stupid critters belong under a boot heel.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕📚💕


  4. Mine for this week is from Shattered Memories from Debbie Lynn Costello
    It is about a great earthquake in Charleston, South Carolina , August 30, 1886.

    “Why can’t you have him arrested and demand our money back?” Olivia Macqueen frowned at her brother. It seemed a simple enough solution. She shuddered at the thought of once being engaged to the detestable man they now discussed.


  5. Shelter of the Most High is on my soon-to-be-read list. I am SO excited to read it!!!

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Lynn Austin’s novel Legacy of Mercy. I just started the book today and I am only on chapter two, so I will share the first line from there.

    “I don’t know how to answer my son Jakob.”

    Makes me want to read on! 😊

    Hope you have an excellent day, and a relaxing weekend filled with great reading!


  6. I’m sharing the first line from Joel C. Rosenberg’s Book “The Kremlin Conspiracy” Moscow —-9 September 1999: “Louisa Sherbatov had just turned six, but she would never turn seven” Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  7. Hi Beth!

    My first line Friday is from An Hour Unspent by Roseanna M. White.

    May 11, 1915 Poplar, London, England
    Barclay Pearce shouldered his way through the mob, invisible.

    Have a blessed weekend.
