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 Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke, one of our CFRR2019 authors! If you are a bookworm, you must read this book!

And the first line is …

May 1940

Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres.



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

    Some calls went wrong. Terribly wrong. Deputy Kendal McKade’s gut screamed this was one of those calls.
    TAKEN IN TEXAS by Susan Sleeman

    “She should have been prepared. After all, she’d had two months to imagine this moment, to brace herself for someone new to enter her life.”

    A Return of Devotion by Kristi Ann Hunter

    “Maple leaves draped over the tree house window, the silvery fronds linked together like rings of chain mail to protect the boy and girl playing inside.” Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson

    If weather portends outcome, as poets suggest, she’ll enjoy a perfect day.

    “Bering just called. We’ve got a four-party transport showing up in fifteen.” from In the Doctor’s Arms by Carol Ross

  6. Happy Friday!

    I’ve shared the first line from The Deceived by Kelly Harrel over on my blog. But, I am currently reading Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews. OH. MY. WORD! Is this book AMAZING!!!! I’m just starting chapter 12, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Babylon’s coolest months were warmer than Jerusalem’s winter, and my small world of friendships was warmer still.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! ???

    Happy Friday & Happy Weekend! My first line is from “The Curse of Misty Wayfair” by Jaime Jo Wright:

    “Melancholy was a condition of the spirit and the soul, but also of the mind.”

  8. Beautiful cover art! I can’t wait for CFRR!
    On my blog this week I shared the first line from Uninvited by Beckie Lindsay but I’m currently reading Vivir el Dream by Allison K Garcia (Yes, it’s written in *mostly* English but anything in Spanish shares the translation). I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Linda grumbled as she changed from her pajamas into jeans and a t-shirt.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
