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 Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is …

This was one of my fave reads of 2018!

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

    Malcolm MacGregor glanced around the dining room of Cantalamessa’s Gourmet Pizzas and More on Highway 10 in Euless, Texas. Each time he’d eaten here, he’d chosen to sit at an out-of-the-way table, separated from most other patrons.
