  1. I loved this book!

    I’m featuring the first line from Angela K. Couch’s brand new release “The Tory’s Daughter” on my blog, but here, I’m going to share the first line of “Little Women”, which I’ve just started listening to via audiobook:

    “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.

    Have a great weekend!


  2. My first line is from Stratagem by Robin Caroll:

    “ According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can’t open the doorunless her employee uses the key he got in the last room.”

    I have been wanting to read something from Catherine West.
    Happy Reading!

  3. My first line comes from A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner:

    September 2011

    The length of floral-patterned challis rested on the cutting table like a bridal bouquet undone.

    I enjoy Catherine West’s books!

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!!!

  4. I have that one on my TBR.

    I shared the first line of Murder at Harbor Village on my blog. Here I will share the opening of Slay Bells Ring by Karen Rose Smith.

    “Your Christmas Delight theme for staging this house is perfect, ” Sara Merriweather told Caprice De Luca on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Yet Sara’s voice held forced cheerfulness and her eyes were troubled.


  5. Happy Friday!🍁

    My first lines come from Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh….

    This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it. Lyndie St. James stood in the hallway of Judson Music Studios, willing herself to open the door. A door that, in the past few months , had come to mean so much, thanks to constant reminders that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!🍁🙃💕


  6. Happy raining Friday!

    My first line is from The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep

    Dover, England 1808
    Numbers would be the death of Johanna Langley.

    Blessings, Tina


  7. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright but I’m currently reading A Light on a Hill by Connilyn Cossette so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (30) here: “Staying close to the narrow river that now barreled downhill through the valley toward Beit She’an, we kept within the trees as much as possible.” Hope you have a great weekend!


  8. Happy Weekend! My first line is from Wait for Me by Susan May Warren:

    “He wasn’t looking for trouble, but if Pete didn’t act right now, at least one person was going to die.”
