Happy Friday!

And welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

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

I’m continuing my feature of recent award nominees/finalists that I haven’t previously used for a FLF post.

The book I’m featuring today is Written in Love by Kathleen Fuller
a nominee for the 2017 RT Reviewer’s Choice Awards!

And the first line is….

“Dear Mr. Chupp,

Your letter was accidentally sent to my house.”

Congratulations, Kathleen, on the much-deserved nomination!!

Let me know the first line of the book closest to you & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

      I forgot to add this important information. Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers Romance Collection is written by Erica Vetsch, Gabrielle Meyer, Amanda Barratt, Susan Page Davis, Kathleen Y’Barbo, Vicki McDonough, and Lorna Seilstad.
      It’s another GREAT collection written like one big book!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m hoping to get to soon, Looking for a Hero by Debbie Macomber.

    Savannah Charles watched the young woman wandering around her bridal shop, checking prices and looking more discouraged by the moment. Her shoulders slumped and she bit her lip when she read the tag on the wedding gown she’d selected.

    Have a great weekend!!

    Over on my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from Sarah Sundin’s “The Sea Before Us”. It’s a fantastic story!
    Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 5 of the same book.
    “Teleprinters chattered and telephones buzzed, and Dorothy carried a stack of diagrams into the intelligence office.”

    “Hi, everyone,” the young woman with the rounded belly on a stick-thin frame, long blond hair, and large haunted eyes, began.

    “Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire.”

    Happy Friday!

    My first line us from Fugitive Spy by Jordyn Redwood:
    As CIA spy Casper English crossed the threshold into the abandoned home, the faint wheezes of a man teetering on death whispered just above the gusting snowstorm.
