Thank goodness for Fridays!!

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

The book I’m featuring today is The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher, another series I’ve really enjoyed!


And the first line is….

“The bad thing about Ruthie Stolzfus’s job was that it barely paid minimum wage and she had no job security.”

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:

Bookworm Mama

Singing Librarian

Faithfully Bookish

    Here is my first line:

    It’s not that you can do this, Kimberly Gallagher’s conscience prodded as she strode through the elegantly appointed welcomeing area of her mother’s central New York wedding and event-organizing enterprise.

        I don’t know if you’ve read any of her other books, but all of them are connected in some way. This one though is totally fine to read on its own because the main characters have only been minor characters in the other books. On that note however, Carol has two free books on Amazon including her first one, Finding Mr. Write.

        • Carrie

          she has been on my radar for a while now and I’m hoping to keep December relatively free from scheduled reviews so I can catch up!

    The trouble with lassoing a Texas cyclone was-now you had a cyclone on the end of your rope.

    Isn’t that a great first line? Love it!

    I’m having trouble deciding what to read next (a bit spoiled with great choices right now) but think I might start this tonight. This will be my first book by her.

    “Charlotte Duvall sat on the velvet settee in her aunt & uncle’s library staring at the massive number of books sitting on the shelves.” From Falling in Love by Belle Calhoune. It just came out today, and I got to read the WHOLE book while we traveled! Ahhhhh!!
