    I have only read Dana’s “dog” series. I will have to try out some of her suspense. 🙂

    My first line:

    Cactus Creek, Texas
    Saturday, March 31, 1888

    “You’d think after all this time I’d be over him.”

    Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch

  2. Janet Ferguson

    I’m reading Finding Margo, and the first line is, “In the heat of the summer, under a dark sky of a moonless night, three Amish children disappeared from their bed, never to be seen again.”

    Matt Tucker could take people for only so long and then he had to get up in the mountains, all the way up where he was more likely to run into a golden eagle than a man. – Now & Forever (Wild At Heart Book 2) by Mary Connealy

    I love the Love Inspired Suspense books! I haven’t read one in ages–need to add some of these to my to-be-read list. 🙂

    Wow! I can’t believe I made it on time this week! My line is from Another Day, Another Dali by Sandra Orchard. “I tore my gaze from the porch that wrapped around the drug dealer’s house and cringed at the number on my phone’s call display.”

      i really need to read this one soon – it’s sitting on one of my TBR stacks, calling to me.

    I loved “Abducted”, non-stop action from beginning to end!

    I actually have my book in my purse today, ” There was only one thing better than the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls in the morning”.

    I LOVE “Where Two Hearts Meet” by Liz Johnson!

    • Carrie

      ooooooo I have that one sitting on one of my TBR piles too!! Waiting for me, calling to me, taunting me even haha!

    Hi Carrie,

    My first line comes from The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck

    April 1930 Heart’s Bend, Tennessee

    The morning began like every other weekday, with Cora making her way up the back walk to the shop, unlocking the door and clicking on the lights.

  9. Rachel D.

    Eeeeeeee!!!! SO excited for the holidays this year! My first line: “Pine Creek, Washington, 1891 – Killing Edward Stevens was beyond her proper ways.” From One Plus One Equals Trouble by Sondra Kraak

  10. Andrea Stephens

    I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just a few days away.
    I missed posting this yesterday (that’s what I get for trying to post from my phone while waiting in line to get into Costco, then forgetting it was Friday by the time I got done doing all my errands and forgetting to get things on my list, UGH) Sorry I spit up a little there. I’ll try posting now.
    “Women with dimples had always been Graham Forrester’s weakness” from Bells at Midnight by Marianne Evans. It’s part of a 4 novella collection called Love at Christmas Inn. I’ve read the first two, very sweet.

    • Carrie

      LOL!!! oh that sounds like a delightful collection… i shall have to check that out!

    I haven’t read Dana’s suspense titles yet, might have to squeeze one in! I’m a day late but wow, it’s been a crazy week!

    “Kacey didn’t want to raise eyebrows and alert the entire town to her return.” – Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren

    HI everyone! The book nearest me is titled, I Am Half Sick Of Shadows, A Flavia de Luce Novel, I actually haven’t started it yet. I found it at the library and the title caught my eye so I picked it up. Here is the first line:
    ” Tendrils of raw fog floated up from the ice like agonized spirits departing their bodies.”
    Looking forward to starting it after that intriguing first line!
