  1. A brilliant story! I loved the codebreaking element – those people were so clever.

    I’ve got a combination first line and cover reveal over on my blog today, sharing the first line and the cover from A Girl’s Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate. I’ve had the privilege of reading an early draft, and I’m looking forward to reading the final version!

    In the meantime, I will console myself with reading Jessica Kate’s debut novel, Love and Other Mistakes, which releases next month. Here’s the first line:

    “Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&M’s on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions.”

  2. My first line is from The Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund:
    London, England. May, 1862
    “Hang on a little longer, my lamb,” Mercy Wilkins shifted the listless infant in her arms without slowing her pace.

    The Number of Love is a fabulous story. I love the research Roseanna does on her books! Everything ties in so well!


  3. I cannot wait to read this book!

    Happy Friday! I know I’m late but today was a busy day. It was the last day of school!!!!
    Anyways, today on my blog I am sharing the first paragraph from A Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep. It’s a FANTASTIC novel. You can see my post by following the link: I am just starting Murder at the Flamingo by Rachel McMillan, so I will post the first few lines from there.

    “Heartbeat, Hamish. Assess your surroundings. Acknowledge the trigger point. Assure a corner for a quick retreat before the symptoms draw attention.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!


  4. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Cabbages and Kings: Reflections on Living Abundantly in Christ” by Dianne Barker:

    “I didn’t have an ordinary childhood and I didn’t have ordinary dreams.”


  5. I ALMOST shared this book this week! I’ll be reading it very soon myself 🙂
    On my blog this week I featured The Brides of Big Valley by Wanda, Jean, and Richelle Brunstetter but I am currently reading Tate by Susan May Warren so I’ll share the first line from chapter 4 here: “With one article of clothing, Glo became a new woman.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂
