  1. Happy Friday!

    My First Lines come from Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne…..

    “This is totally lame. Why do we have to stay here and wait for you? We can walk home in, like, ten minutes.” Daniela Capelli drew in a deep breath and prayed for patience, something she seemed to be doing with increasing frequency these days when it came to her thirteen-year-old daughter. “It’s starting to snow and already almost dark.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!??

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “A Widow’s Hope” by Vannetta Chapman:

    “Monday mornings were never easy.”

  3. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is “Out of the Storm” by Jody Hedlund. Since I’m still reading it, I will share the first line of the fourth chapter here. “Isabelle,” called Henry from the bedroom. “I need you!” May your weekend be all you’re hoping it will be.

    I wish I could say I was overcome with happiness as my sister Jessica pledged her life to her beloved. But I wasn’t.

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Tracy Groot’s novel The Stones of my Accusers. Currently, I am reading Finding Us by Heather Moore. So far, it’s a fun book. One of those books that has me smiling with each page! I am starting chapter 7, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Opening the bookshop on Saturday morning wasn’t as bad as Felicity thought it might be.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with quality reading time!

  7. Happy Friday, Carrie! After preparing my blog post sharing first line from Shelley Shepard Gray’s Her Fear, I ended up reading the entire book. So here I’ll share the first lines for a novella I plan to read soon, Come Fly with Me by Gina Welborn and Becca Whitham:

    Please, let him not be here. As Luanne Palmer climbed the stairs to the second floor, she muttered “please” after “please.”

  8. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from chapter 6 of The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear:

    Morning dawned with a bit more edge to the wind and the clouds more thick and grey, spitting definite rain.

  9. My FLF today is An Unpresentable Glory by Eleanor K. Gustafson. “On her return from church Kileenda Jensen discovered a problem, and it had nothing to do with her name”

  10. I love that cover! This sounds like my kind of book.

    I’m sharing the first line from All Made Up by Kara Isaac on my blog this week. It’s currently available for pre-order, and it’s another winner in my totally biased opinion 🙂

    I’m currently reading Delayed Justice by Cara Putman. Here’s the first line:

    “It’s time to go, sweetie.”

    Have a great weekend!

  11. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Playing for More by Case Keenum to celebrate NFL season. (I feel the need to share that I’m a Colts fan). I am also currently reading Indivisible by Travis Thrasher so I will share the first line of that here: “She carries the memories and always will.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂
