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 joined us for the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat this past weekend.

(This post was supposed to go up last week but WordPress didn’t post it for some annoying reason lol)

The book I’m featuring today is A Most Inconvenient Love by Ruth Logan Herne, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is …

Sebastian Ward didn’t growl, and he felt good about that.

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

  1. You will love Sebastian Ward.

    He is the Darcy-like character in this new prairie historical, and if you’ve never fallen in love with a hero before, here is your chance because Seb is everything we’ve all ever wanted…

    And yet as real as real could be. 🙂

    Thank you for featuring this great story, Carrie!!!!

    I’ve a thief to thank for finding the one person I need to see before I die.

  4. Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line of Amanda Dykes’s novella “Up from the Sea”. Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 25 of the book I’m currently reading, The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E. Ladd. “They’d found her.”

    Sad, but true. She would have to procure a new favorite coffee mug.

  6. It was awesome to meet you last weekend! It was an incredible weekend and y’all did an amazing job putting it all together!
    I’m sharing a CFRR book this week too 🙂
    The book I shared today on my blog is Caught by Surprise by Jen Turano but I’m currently reading The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sara E Ladd so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (17) here: “Delia chewed her lip as she traversed the path to Fairhold Cottage, mentally practicing what she wanted to say.” Hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

    My first paragraph is from an exceptional book by a new author: A retelling of Ruth and Naomi in Victorian times.
    Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens:
    England, July, 1861
    Both women were starving.
    After nearly three weeks in Abbotsville, Rena’s shoulder blades now cut against her skin like she was made of paper. Head pounding, she lay beside Nell in a stable which smelled of manure, desperate for a way to escape the unbreakable claws of poverty.

  10. Happy Friday!

    A Most Inconvenient Love sounds interesting. 🙂 I’ll have to add it to my ever-growing TBR list.

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the opening line from Susan Anne Mason’s A Worthy Heart. I’m also reading The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky. The first line is:

    “If she lived to be one hundred and five, Katherine Evangeline Ramsey would never understand why every debutante must begin the London social season by curtsying to the king and queen.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. ?

  11. I’m enjoying this whole series! Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer is on top of my “read this next” stack. I’m sharing from Chapter 1 on my blog, so here is the first line from the prologue:

    “A great philosopher looks at his various struggles as fodder for his innovative thinking, but, since I am not a great philosopher, I look at my struggles as something akin to stepping on a bee the size of a Komodo dragon.”

    Happy Friday and have a good weekend!

  12. I’m sure you all had a great time at CFFR. I would love to attend one day!

    I’m sharing the first line from Beyond the Stars, Past the Moons by Jebraun Clifford on my blog today. It’s from the Encircled anthology, which I’m looking forward to reading.

    Here’s another first line from the anthology. This one is from Edged in Silver by Laurie Lucking:

    “If only I didn’t have to go home.”

    Happy reading. Have a great weekend 🙂

  13. Good old technology. 😉

    I’m sharing about a FREE novella by Tari Faris on my blog today, but I’m also in the middle of listening to Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell, narrated by Juliet Stevenson. I’m absolutely loving it–both the story and the narration. Here’s the first line from chapter 16:

    The day arrived on which the masters were to have an interview with a deputation of the work-people.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. I’m late this weekend because I just got back from being out of town. I will share a book that was waiting for me in the mailbox — Living Lies by Natalie Walters. “Just let go.”

    Have a great week!
