    Good book! I will share the first line from Their Mistletoe Matchmakers by Keli Gwyn:
    The ominous crack of the large oak tree branch overhead sent a chill racing down Lavinia Crowne’s spine.

    Happy Friday! Merry December 😉

    This is from Secrets by Rick Acker, part of Kill Zone: Ten Deadly Thrillers.
    (first two lines)
    Scott Sherman’s heart skipped a beat. That should have worried him, but he didn’t notice it.

    If I can be immodest enough to refer to my own novel “Benefit of the Doubt”, the first line is “David Hidalgo leaned forward in an attitude that could have been either prayer or desperation”. Working out that knife edge between faith and doubt, trust and despair is then what the whole series goes on to be about.

    I am really loving the Love Inspired books now! 🙂

    I’m sharing the first line from Heather Gray’s An Informal Christmas on my blog today. The first line from the book I’m currently reading is “His footsteps echoing, Ryan Savage walked the first grader from the cafeteria toward the media center.” The Christmas Baby by Lisa Carter (another Love Inspired book).

    My first line Friday is from Christmas Magic by Cathy Kelly

    Primrose Cottage sat at the very end of Johnson’s Lane, an enchantingly pretty little house with wisteria snaking into the low roof and rose bushes clustering up to peer in the windows.

    Happy Friday!

    My almost-first line is from “Guilt by Association” by Heather Gilbert. Love this series!

    “Now what’s your momma need again? . . Good question. My mom’s only been out of prison for three months – . . . . . “

    The compressed sand burned my bare feet as I ran towards the crystal clear blue water with brilliant sunlight cascading down upon it.
    A Cookies & Chance Mystery –
    BAKED TO DEATH by Catherine Bruns

    I have this sweet book and have just started reading it.

    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from First Street Church Romances: Love’s Christmas Cheer by Alexa Verde:

    “Hurting her co-chef wasn’t an option.”

    I’m loving all the Christmas novellas and Love Inspired Historicals out this time of year – just wish I had time to read them all 😀

    I’ve joined a Miss Read read-along (#MissReadalong) on Instagram, and we’re starting off in December with Christmas at Thrush Green:

    Chapter One

    ‘I know there’s a saying that “if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb”,’ said Winnie Bailey, gazing out of the kitchen window, ‘but is there a saying about this dreadful December wind?’
