First Line Friday (week 75): A New Shade of Summer

September 15, 2017 Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, romance 30

Happy Friday! I’m cool aunting in Atlanta this week – yay!

Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.

The book I’m featuring today is A New Shade of Summer by Nicole Deese.

And the first line is:

“Considering my allegiance to classic rock, I couldn’t claim an eclectic taste in music.”

    Such a great read!

    I’ve got the first line from Janet Ferguson’s new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    “Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.”

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with ‘have a good weekend’, but I hope you do! 🙂

    I have A New Shade of Summer and am excited to read it soon.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    Classic rock is the best! This is so on my TBR!

    I’m sharing about “The League and the Lantern” by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is “All of You” by Sarah Monzon.

    Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

    My next book is Colors Of Christmas by Olivia Newport.

    They rode in silence, the murmur of Alex’s expensive late model white SUV lulling Astrid into drowsiness.

    Yes, I’m another fan of classic rock!

    I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

    Heard a lot of good things about this book. Can’t wait to read it!

    Right now, I’m reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It’s the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

    “There was almost nothing there. Almost.”
