10 thoughts on “First Line Fridays — The Tea Chest

  1. My first line is from the suspense novel by Patricia Bradley, STANDOFF.
    What had he gotten himself into?

    The Tea Chest looks like a must read!


  2. Over on my blog I’m featuring Pretending to Wed by Melissa Jagears. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter six of the same book.
    “Setting buckets under the well pump, Nolan started to fill them and squinted at the wagon coming down the road.”


  3. Beautiful cover! The book I’m sharing on my blog is my current read, a devotional by Ravi Zacharias, The Logic of God. Here I will share the first line in chapter three: With the numerous religions in the world, how can Christians claim exclusivity?


  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Grand Encounters” by Jen Turano:

    “I know you mentioned you’ve sworn off gentlemen forever, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and – need I say – Delicious is here again, and, unsurprisingly, he’s sitting in your section.”


  5. Happy Friday!
    On my blog I’m sharing the first lines from The Socialite by J’nell Ciesielski. I’m currently on chapter 14, so I’ll share from there.
    “Kat tipped the glass of wine to her mouth, but didn’t part her lips. She hated reds, especially dry ones, and they gave her a splitting headache.”
    I hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time! 😀❤📚
