  1. Happy Friday!😊 I love the cover of your book!

    My first lines come from Jacob’s Bell by John Snyder…

    A deafening screech, then a loud thud jolted Jacob McCallum upright from his slumber as the freight train pulled into the Chicago yards on a chilly September morning in 1944.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚🎃

  2. My first line is from Lady of a Thousand Treasures by Sandra Byrd:

    September 1866, Oxfordshire, England
    A threading of voices spooled throughout the expansive chamber wherein we waited, voices so decently quiet as to be murmurs.

  3. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Misadventures with a Manny by Toni Aleo.

    “I am completely heartbroken. Everything hurts. But not due to the loss I am experiencing. That sickening feeling in my gut is for my boys.”

  4. That first line definitely gives you the idea where this story is heading, but it looks like one I would enjoy.

    On my blog I have highlighted Academic Curveball by James J. Cudney, but I am also reading Cropped To Death by Christina Freeburn.

    “The industrial sized straight-blade trimmer sliced through the air.”

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Connilyn Cossette’s newest novel, Shelter of the Most High. I cannot wait to get into this book. Currently, I am reading A Tale of Two Hearts by Michelle Griep. It is SO good. I am loving it. I am on chapter 23, so I will post the first line from that chapter here:

    “He’d meant to talk to his uncle, truly he had, but the next day passed in a blur of festive activities — and never once had Uncle been without Miss Whymsy at his side.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with lots of good reading!

  6. I’m featuring Burden of Proof by DiAnn Mills on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Calm Cool and Connected by Arlene Pellicane, which is about forming good online habits. Here’s the first line:

    “Imagine a small device that has gone from nonexistent to indispensable in less than a decade. You’ve probably guessed it. That amazing little invention is the smartphone.”


  7. Happy Weekend! My first line is from Until I Met You by Kimberly Rose Johnson, which is included in the collection A Christmas To Remember:

    “Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle.”


  8. This is my first line:
    “Ethan Blackwell was surrounded by critically ill checking accounts.”😂
    From The Rancher’s Rescue by
    Cari Lynn Webb. Book 2 in the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series. 😊
