  1. I always love reading Lori Benton’s books and this one is no exception! I just loved every moment spent in the pages of this story!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett. This wonderful story releases on June 16. It takes place in Yellowstone National Park in 1933. Swing on by and check out the first line!


  2. I came home with a copy of this from CFRR and can’t wait to read it but my review pile has been too high! Hopefully I’ll be able to fit it in soon 🙂

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma but I’m currently reading Britfield & the Lost Crown by C.R. Stewart so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (13) here: “Thirty minutes later, Tom and Sarah enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate, along with a tray of desserts including Bakewell tarts, Eccles cakes, treacle pudding and crème brulee.” Sounds appetizing! Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂


  3. Read The King’s Mercy. Fantastic book!

    My first line is from The Number of Love by Roseanna White:
    London, England 1917
    The numbers marched across the page in a glory all their own.
    Fabulous book as expected.
