First Line Friday (Week 21): Angel of the Cove

August 19, 2016 First Line Fridays, historical 18

first line fridays

It’s the last Friday before I head to Nashville for the VERY FIRST EVER Christian Fiction Readers Retreat!!!

I. Am. So. Excited!!!

My book packing list is out of control.

While I’m trying to make the crucial decisions as to which books to bring with me to Nashville, why don’t you grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

The book I’m featuring today is one of my faves set in Tennessee, Angel of the Cove by Sandra Robbins. It’s all about Cades Cove and my beloved Smoky Mountains, so the opposite end of the state as Nashville … but … just work with me lol.

And the first line is (ok actually I’m cheating and giving you two lines)….

“Mountain air was supposed to be cool. At least that’s what she’d always heard.”

So… what’s your First Line on this Friday?

Let me know in the comments and then head over to share your First Line with these friends:

    “The scent of rain laced the afternoon breeze as it shoved through summer-green trees, ramming ominous black clouds together like a craggy mountain ridge.” From The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck which I have finished and am getting ready to write a review. LOVED it!!

  2. Beckie B.

    Love this first line — “Stephanie regretted driving over the wedding cake.” Fetching Sweetness by Dana Mentink.

    • Carrie

      That is one of my fave first lines I’ve read lately lol

  3. Beth Erin

    The Bound Heart by Dawn Crandall
    “Come on, Meredyth…” Vance Everstone urged with a smile.

    I also love Cades Cove and I’m super excited about CFRR (and my British navigator, thank you very much!)

    • Carrie

      Hahahaha! I’m so glad you are enjoying the British navigator LOL

      • Beth Erin

        Well, technically I haven’t left the house except for the trip to the library but just knowing he’s ready to help me on my way should I choose to (or be forced to) venture out makes me feel kind of special 😉

  4. Winnie Thomas

    “A new day–another opportunity to prove herself to her boss.” from Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K Vogt. It just came in the mail today (book win!), and I haven’t quit looking at it, although it will probably have to wait its turn. So excited! 😀

  5. Pam K.

    “The steep sides of the pass into the canyon pressed down on Heath Kincaid until he could hardly breathe.” No Way Up by Mary Connealy. I love the way Mary has characters (or sometimes their descendants)from other series reappear in a new series or novella.

    We only see what we want to see – in people, in love, and in life. – The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambron

    HAPPY FRIDAY!

    I just got done with this book today, it’s from Jodie Bailey’s newest LIS “Breach of Trust”;

    “Meghan McGuire dragged her fingers through her short dark hair and scanned the computer screen, fighting an uncharacteristic cold sweat at the message swimming in blue on the display. ‘It’s time for round two'”

  8. Rachel D.

    My first line is: “Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies, with Uncle Henry, who was a farmer, and Aunt Em, who was the farmer’s wife.”
