Posted January 11, 2019 by meezcarrie in Aubrey Grayson, Christian, First Line Fridays, historical, romance / 12 Comments


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 #CFRR2019 FLF series, spotlighting books from the authors who will be joining us for the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat in April 2019!

The book I’m featuring today is Captive Restored by Aubrey Grayson, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is …

Amelia, the Countess of Aberfoyle, shifted on the hard leather carriage seat and shoved a wayward lock of hair back under the edge of her borrowed cap.



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

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” 😉 The actual line is much longer than I realized! LOL

    Kiss Viktor for me.
    Ester Beachy frowned at the bedroom she’d just finished cleaning – his bedroom.

  3. Happy Friday!😉

    My first lines come from Restaurant Weeks are Murder by Libby Klein…….

    “I don’t care how good Dr. Oz says it is, I’m not eating vegan cheese.” Aunt Ginny took the last stuffed pheasant off the Fraser fir, wrapped it in tissue paper, and placed it in an old Woolworth’s hat box to store until next Christmas.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕

  4. I haven’t read a Regency in a while. Thanks for sharing. I am excited about attending CFFR! I just have to decide if I want to spend the night at the hotel before the Saturday conference. It’s hard to choose between family and book friends!

    Regret slid through Meg like the cold wash of the morning tide. Still, she ran. Wet sand flying. Salt-saturated air on her skin.

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines of Who I Am with You by Robin Lee Hatcher. It’s such a good book. I’m just beginning chapter 25, so I will share the first line from there.

    “Feeling elated by his day down in the valley, meeting with a financial advisor and a Realtor, Ridley rapped on Jessica’s back door.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

    Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Marry Me Katie (Whispers in Wyoming Book 7)” by Lisa Prysock:

    “Flight #753 to Rockport Regional, come in Rockport Regional Airport… repeat… requesting permission to make an emergency landing… repeat… Flight #753 requesting permission to make an emergency landing. Low on fuel.”

    My first line is from Dead Drift by Dani Pettery:

    Luke extricated himself from the vehicle to find shattered convoy debris littering the ground.
