First Line Friday (week 152): Season of Hope

Posted July 19, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, Lisa Jordan, romance / 22 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. Today, on First Line Friday I’m featuring Season of Hope by Lisa Jordan, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line of Season of Hope is…

Jake hated betrayal.

His dreams can all come true…
but only if his ex-wife will agree!

Jake Holland’s peaceful dairy farm is a sanctuary–one he wants to share with other worn and weary veterans. He just needs one more piece of land to start his program…and it belongs to Tori Lerner, his ex-wife. A collaboration could benefit them both, but with a past full of secrets between them, is there any hope for renewed love?

    CARLOS MISSIRIAN was his name, One of his many names.

  2. I am such a fan of Love Inspired books! 🙂

    I’m currently reading Andrew by Jennifer Beckstrand and LOVING IT! I loved the first line of chapter three so I’ll share that line. ” Alfie Benaiah Petersheim, get that cat off my table!”

    As Noah bolted out of Robert’s pickup, he spied flames devouring the brush outside the fire pit. There’s been an unusual warm spell for the area, leaving conditions dry. He heard the ski resorts needed to make snow. He shook his head at such nonsense.
    PLAIN EVERYDAY HEROES by Laura V. Hilton, Rachel J. Good and Thomas Nye

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Kate’s Song” by Jennifer Beckstrand:

    “Is he dead? Please tell me he’s not dead!”

  5. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller:

    Today, I’m currently reading The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden. It’s an excellent story that I highly recommend! I’m just starting chapter 34, so I’ll share from there.

    “Gray rarely took the time to read The Washington Post first thing in the morning.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend!!! ?❤?

  6. Good morning!

    I am currently reading Underestimating Miss Cecilia, #2 Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley, Book 2 by Carolyn Miller and enjoying it very much.

    Aynsley Manor, Somerset
    June 1819
    It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seed to notice one’s existence.

    Blessings, Tina

    They were a stench in his nostrils.
    Thirst of Steel by Ronie Kendig

  8. I like the name Jake, looks like a good read! Here’s the first line from my current read, Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh: “Carly Collins hated running late.”

  9. This sounds like a fun set-up for second-chance romance 🙂

    I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller on my blog today – it seems to be a popular choice!

    I’m currently reading Fatal Strike by DiAnn Mills. Here’s the first line:

    Special Agent Leah Riesel scanned the headlines on her phone.

    That’s a little underwhelming, but the first chapter includes a shoot-out in a hostage situation, so it ramps up the action quickly.

    Happy reading!

  10. Happy Friday! Since I’m sharing from chapter 1 of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham on my blog today, here is the first line from the prologue:

    “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellowed papers closer and pressed her lips to them.”

  11. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I’m currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

    A great opening line! I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.

  13. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from The Crossing of Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman
    Natchez Under-the-Hill on the Mississippi River, August 1792
    Caleb O’Shea jerked awake to utter stillness.

    Great series!
