    I just finished Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble. The first line is:
    Chapter 1
    August 2, 1776
    “I forbid you to go, Hannah.”

  2. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from Redemption at Shadow Lake by J.E. Grace
    An attractive man in his early thirties with deeply disturbed eyes stands in the shadows.

    THE CATS CAME BACK
    by Sofie Kelly
    The body was on the front seat of my truck, about halfway between the passenger door and the cloth grocery bad I’d left in the middle of the seat.

  4. Happy Friday!?

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading shortly, Unleashed by Donna Kauffman.

    Emma Lafferty’s life had gone to the dogs. Literally. And to the cats. And the parakeets, goldfish, hamsters, even the occasional potbelly pig. What it and her fledgling pet-sitting service hadn’t gone to was her bank account. Not enough, anyway.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!???

  5. Here’s the first line from All of You by Sarah Monzon, my current read. “Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.”

    For the record, I’m loving the Carrington brothers. 🙂

  6. How I wish I could attend CFRR this year! It looks so fun!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Lynnette Bonner’s High Desert Haven. Here, I’ll share one of my favorite lines from Crossed Out by Christina Coryell (her contribution to the Once Upon A Laugh novella collection):

    Kids at yard sales were nearly impossible to corral. Grandmas watching kids at yard sales were like wild mustangs, throwing caution and endless quarters to the wind.

  7. I’m featuring lines from Danielle Norman’s upcoming release Roadster on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Keira Montclair’s Falling for the Chieftan. It’s her new historical time travel romance.

    “Allison Sutton’s feet hit water as she plunged into the murky liquid at the base of the cascading falls.”

    Happy Reading!

  8. An author I need to read! I”m featuring Starting From Scratch by Kate Lloyd on my blog, so here is a line from page 11:

    “A few minutes later I sat on the suitcase’s lid while Marta fastened the metal latches with gusto.”

    Happy Friday!

  9. Happy Saturday!

    Yesterday on my blog, I shared the first lines from Cara Putman’s novel Delayed Justice. Here I will share the first line from the novel I’m currently reading, An Unpresentable Glory by Eleanor Gustafson.

    “On her return from church, Kileenda Jensen discovered a problem, and it had nothing to do with her name.”

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!!! ???

  10. Becky Smith

    I know I’m late for Friday, so happy Labor Day weekend! My first line is from Under Prairie Skies by Cynthia Roemer.

    “The sound of a spry whistle froze Charlotte Stanton in her tracks. She tightened her hold on her bucket of creek water, eyes narrowing.”
