Posted August 16, 2019 by meezcarrie in Amish, Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, romance, Tracey Lyons / 18 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 A Love for Lizzie by Tracey Lyons, one of our CFRR2019 (and 2016 & 2017) authors!

And the first line is…

“Good morning, Lizzie.”

Childhood friends joined by a painful past…

Can love blossom between them?

After her father falls ill, Lizzie Miller and her family desperately need help to keep the farm going during harvesttime. Neighbor Paul Burkholder is eager to lend a hand–and to court Lizzie. But Paul has a secret that he fears could push Lizzie away.

Can they finally heal from a tragedy in their pasts…and open their hearts to each other?

    Great choice! I’ve had A Love for Lizzie on my TBR, and I can’t wait to get to it.

    My First Line Friday is from Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham. I’m almost finished, and it is definitely going on my To Be Read Again shelf!


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

    “Come on, Nathan,” nine yer old Paige whispered with urgency. “Hurry before Daddy wakes up.”
    SUGARPLUM HOMECOMING by Linda Goodnight

    I am enjoying Strands of Truth by Colleen Coble.

    Lisa ran to her Datsun Bluebird and jerked open the yellow door.

    My first lines are from Deadly Intentions by Rachel Dylan.
    Chapter 2.

    The impact with the car’s air bag felt like a head-on collision with a train. Smoke filled the air. Fine dust settled around her. She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. The car rolled one more time, then settled upright.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Redemption Road” by Christa MacDonald:

    “The jingle of sleigh bells rang out as the door to the shop swung open.”

  6. I have a copy of this one but haven’t had the chance to read it yet!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt. I just finished A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m about to start The Healing Jar by Wanda Brunstetter so I’ll share that first line here: “Tears sprang to Lenore Lapp’s eyes as she stood with the others who had come to witness this special English wedding.” Happy reading!

    A nice opening line. 🙂

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson.

    The clash of cologne, sweat, and ego assaulted her senses as it did every weekday morning.

  8. Here’s the first line from my book club’s next selection — Cost of Betrayal. It comes from the novella by Dee Henderson. “Ann Falcon eased toward the front of the crowd.”

    Hope you had a great weekend!
