First Line Fridays – Christmas at the Red Door Inn

Hello, reader friends! I hope it’s not too gauche to introduce myself and say it’s Katie from Fiction Aficionado here saying I’m very excited to have joined the Hoarding Books team! Many of you will have visited my cyber home through First Line Friday in the past, but if not, this is me saying pleased to meet you. And a big wave to those of you I already know and love. ❤

Tomorrow is the 1st of December—can you believe it? If you haven’t already been gearing up for Christmas, look out. It’s about to descend! But if you’re looking for a quick read to distract you from the madness while keeping you in the Christmas mood, I have just the thing.

  1. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall. I’m very excited to get into that book. Because I am just starting this novel, I will post the first two lines from chapter 2.

    “Captain’s orders. You and Mrs. Keate stay here until it’s safe.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fantastic reading time! 😃❤️📚

  2. Happy Friday!👏

    My first lines come from The Patient One by Shelley Shepard Gray…….

    “Thank you for coming. I’m so glad you could make it,” Mrs. Warner said as she clasped Katie Steury’s hand between her own. “Andy . . . well, Andy would have been pleased to see you here.”

    Have a very relaxing weekend and happy reading!😊

  3. Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I’m currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (there’s no chapter #s) here: “Do her eyes accuse you?” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  4. Since Nicole and I are reading the same book, I’ll go with the real first line of The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall:
    The Atlantic Ocean off the Coast of Virginia August 6, 1814

    What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down…down…beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?

  5. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Looking Glass Lies” by Varina Denman:

    “I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again.”
