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 in April.

The book I’m featuring today is Amish Safe House by Debby Giusti, one of our CFRR2019 (and 2016 & 2017) authors!

And the first line is…

Gunfire!


Eep! That certainly got my attention! How about you?

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 our last day in Paris.
    My husband (and yes, I was really loving that word – a lot) Derek and I had breakfast on the private terrace of the hotel suite, enjoying the spectacular view of the city that was spread out before us.

  4. Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund. Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 4 of the same book.
    “Mercy stood in the long line of tenants waiting for a turn at the water spigot at the back of the building.”

    I am finishing up this series. So good!

  7. DUCK! I’m currently reading The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze… “With a furtive pat, Gemma Lyfeld blotted her nerve-damp palms on her white muslin gown.”

  8. I came home with that one from CFRR 🙂
    Today on my blog I featured A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund which I just finished last night. My next read is going to be Where Hope Begins by Catherine West so I’ll share that first line here: “My husband is leaving me.” I think I’m in for an intense read! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some quality reading time 🙂

  9. Happy Friday, Carrie! I’m sharing Amish Fiction as well. Here is the second line from Kelly Irvin’s Through the Autumn Air:

    “Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.”

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “When Love Blossoms: Book 2 of the Kindred Lake Series” by Elaine Stock:

    “Kierra Madden grasped the phone tighter in both disbelief and gratitude.”
