First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books

First Line Friday – The Red Canary

Happy Friday all, and happy Thanksgiving! We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, but I hope all our US readers have managed to find ways to celebrate and give thanks in this strange year that has been 2020. I mean, if nothing else, we still have books, right? 😉

Speaking of books, have you discovered historical romance author Rachel Scott McDaniel? Her new book released earlier this month, and I’m looking forward to reading it soon. Make sure you check it out!

  2. My first line is from TO STEAL A HEART by Jen Turano
    November 1886 New York City
    It was quickly becoming evident that she, Miss Gabriella Goodhue, might very well be arrested in the nit-too-distant future, and all because she’d convinced herself that sneaking into a high-society costume ball would be a relatively easy feat, given her past life as a street thief .
