Posted June 28, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, Lisa Carter, romance / 23 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 joined us for the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat in April.

The book I’m featuring today is His Secret Daughter by Lisa Carter, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is…

Jake McAbee didn’t know much, but he did know when he was in the middle of nowhere.

Isn’t that cover so sweet, too? those little pink boots!


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

    Prologue
    Luke crouched behind an orange shipping container, dreading to think what it held.

    “Lady Ella Myerston knew more than everyone thought she did – and more than they thought she should” is from A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanna M. White.

  3. Since I’m busy doing edits, the only thing I’m reading is my cozy mystery: “Fun. This riverboat cruise was going to be fun if it killed her.” Murder on the Mississippi

  4. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky. It came out a few days ago!
    London 1909
    Katie McAlister’s heart pounded a frantic beat as she gripped the rickety railing and rushed down the back stairs.
    Great historical book!

  5. AmyJo

    “The explosion was deafening” from A Dangerous Act of Kindness by LP Fergusson, Overdrive’s Big Library Read ebook.

  6. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I shared the first 2 lines from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 where I am now: “I found my father on the roof, on his knees.” It’s amazing so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time 🙂

  7. That’s a fun first line!

    I am sharing the first line from a TBR title on my blog today, Ever Faithful.

    Here’s the first line of my current read: “People parted around us in the courtyard.” from The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. I’m almost finished with it, and I LOVE it!

  8. Happy Friday! I finally got my post up. Better late than never. 😉

    I shared from The String by Caleb Breakey — “The branding iron pulsated reddish orange in the corner fireplace. It was time.”

    Gives you the shiver doesn’t it?!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. I enjoy the secret baby trope, but it can be hard for authors to pull off convincingly, especially in Christian fiction.

    I’m sharing the opening line from The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale over on my blog today, and I’m currently reading Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson. I clicked “buy” on the first line of the sample:

    “Book Fair. The very words of the sign filled Mellie with loathing. Book Fair indeed. More like Book Unfair.”

    Quirky, and it appeals to my sense of humour. I’m halfway through and loving it! Happy reading 🙂

    That cover is adorable. 🙂

    Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Valerie Comer.

    Spencer Haviland had prided himself on planning his life to the tiniest detail.
