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 “The Galway Girl” novella (from Mail-Order Mishaps) by Erica Vetsch, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is…

The crack of Maeve O’Reilly’s palm connecting with his face ricocheted through the scullery, sending a hot sting up her arm and a satisfying thrill through her heart—just before despair gripped her.

Eep! I’m intrigued! And isn’t that cover so lovely?


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

    Today’s the day! Adrenaline and excitement surged through Gideon Kaiser as he parked his buggy next to the midwife’s buggy. He couldn’t wait to hold his first boppli – and just after Thanksgiving! An extra blessing to give thanks for.

    • Happy Friday!

      Today on my blog I’m sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It’s a really good book! I’m currently on chapter 25, so I’ll share the first line from there.

      “If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity.”

      Hope you have an excellent weekend. 😀❤📚

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Edge of Truth” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    “The hair on Kara Nelson’s neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn’t right.”

    My first line is from The Express Bride by Kim Woodhouse:
    Prologue:
    St. Louis, March 1834
    With shaking limbs, she climbed into the plush carriage awaiting her, the precious bundle in her arms worth far more than the money, trinkets and trunks of clothing she left behind.
    Wonderful book. Check out the whole series of The Daughters of the Mayflower.

    The competing sounds of brass bands, jazz ensembles, and zydeco musicians gave Newpointe, Louisiana, an an irresistibly festive atmosphere, but Mark Branning tried not to feel festive.
