First Line Friday – Carry Me Away

Happy Friday, reader friends! A few weeks ago I shared the first line from Australian author Dorothy Adamek’s debut novel Carry Me Home. This week, I’m sharing the first line from the second book in that series, which just released last Tuesday, 5 November: Carry Me Away.

If you love historical romance, particularly authors like Laura Frantz or Joanne Bischof, then this series is a must for your TBR. You can read my review over at Fiction Aficionado, or you can just take my word for it here and now!

    • Carry Me Away sounds great!
      My first line is from The Pursuit of Home by Kristi Hunter

      Marlborough, England 1816
      Sometimes, despite time, distance, and a significant amount of ignoring it, the past never quite went away.


  1. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham. Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 5 — “There was something about front porch swings.”
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of bookish delights!


  2. Happy Friday! 😀

    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Misleading Miss Verity by Carolyn Miller: I’m currently reading Once Upon a Christmas, a novella collection. I’ll share a line from there:

    “Stretching her arm, Li slammed her hand on her phone and tapped to snooze the alarm.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📖


  3. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “The Strength of Their Love” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Forrest Williams slammed his hand on the nightstand, trying to find his phone so he could shut off the racket the alarm was making.”
