Happy Friday! Today’s first line is from a book I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing for Hope By The Book magazine (for those who are wondering, it’s a new reader lifestyle magazine with articles, interviews, and reviews).
Merry Christmas, reader friends, and welcome to our special Yuletide edition of First Line Fridays! Tell me all about your Christmas plans! Is anyone still scrambling around for last-minute gifts? Do y’all have snow? (We hardly ever have a white Christmas, it seems like the snow always goes north or south of us. Craziness!)
“Once upon a time—specifically, last December—author Maren Grant had what she thought might be the most perfect night of her life.“
“If Rylan Jefferson was lucky, after tonight she’d never have to see Colin Renwycke again.“
“Usually on nights like this—with snowfall glimmering under the hazy glow of lamplight, a peaceful hush hovering over the town square—Leigh Renwycke could almost forget.“
Believe it or not, I don’t binge on Christmas stories in December! I like to read them throughout the year and this collection is one of my favorites! I’m looking forward to getting a print copy for my shelf in the future, it’s on my wishlist!
Your turn, reader friends! Share YOUR first line in the comments below!
