I spy some of my favorite authors and after those lines, I have a feeling I’ll be adding more favorites to my list!!! I already purchased and downloaded a copy of this collection and I’m looking forward to snuggling up with a cozy blanket and my Kindle!

  1. I do love a good Christmas novella! 🙂 Today I’m sharing from The End Begins by Sara Davison, book one of The Seven Trilogy:

    Meryn didn’t move until a loud thud and a shout from upstairs yanked her from her stunned silence. “We need to get out now.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love Christmas stories! Those look great!

    I featured Pepper Basham’s new book, When You Look at Me. I couldn’t just do the first line! 🙂

    Julia Jenkins was a glass-half-full person. Well, most of the time. Even with her sordid backstory. So she’d spent massive amounts of energy over the past few hours trying to think of all the positive aspects of her abdomen bulging overnight to show her full seven-months pregnancy. Stomach sleeping? Out. Reaching her feet without sandwiching an actual person in the middle? Impossible. Going anywhere without scouting out the restroom signs? Dangerous.

  3. A Strong hand clasped Eloise Archer’s upper arm, yanking her toward a deserted hallway in the Palm Cove Florida, police department. The Lawman’s Secret Vow by Tara Randel.


  4. The only thing better than one first line is eight. Clever!

    I’ve just finished reading Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh (one of those books I opened to get the first line to share, but it hooked me so now I’m sharing the first line after I’ve read the last. And I’m sharing a day late. #SorryNotSorry). Here’s the first line:

    “This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it.”

    On my blog, I’m sharing from an old favourite Australian contemporary Christian romance that’s recently been re-released: Return to Baragula by Mary Hawkins. I hope you get a chance to check it out.


  5. This week on my blog I shared Ours for a Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer but I’m currently reading Chosen People by Robert Whitlow so here I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (26): “Hana had trouble containing her excitement during her morning Skype session with Daud.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!
