My First Line:

New York City
Nevember 1885

Any smidgen of hope that her entrance into New York high society would be deemed a rousing success died the moment Miss Poppy Garrison’s tiara became firmly attached to the sleeve of her dance partner.

  1. I love that book! I’m sharing the first two lines from The Old Lace Shop by Michelle Griep. It is available in “Once Upon a Dickens Christmas.”

    Bella
    London, 1855
    I have long abhorred black. It is a great abyss, sucking in the colours of the rainbow and wringing the life from them.

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/09/12/first-line-friday-101/. It’s such a good book. Currently, I am reading book 2 in the series, All of You, so I will share a line from there.

    “England, 1944
    The gangplank bounced under the weight of passengers disembarking the large transatlantic liner — a veritable Goliath to the small David-like tugboats dotting the harbor.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  3. I hope to read this one soon!!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Shades of Light by Sharon Garlough Brown but I’m currently reading My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 here: “Like a rent in fabric formerly whole, the wake of her vater’s absence yawned wide and gaping.” Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Loved Jen’s book. It is laugh out loud funny!
    My first line is from The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

    May 1900 Washington D.C.
    Annabelle Larkin hadn’t meant to offend the world’s leading spice tycoon with her bold request, yet it seemed she had.
