First Line Friday (and a Giveaway!): More Than We Remember

Posted February 21, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, Christina Suzann Nelson, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway / 25 Comments

Happy Friday! And welcome to First Line Friday, 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, I’m featuring the first line of More Than We Remember by Christian Suzann Nelson, currently on tour with JustRead Tours (the company I co-own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

The perp was a mama raccoon.


One night changes everything. . . .

When Addison Kilbourn’s husband is involved in a car accident that leaves a woman dead, her perfectly constructed life crumbles apart. With her husband’s memory of that night gone and the revelation of a potentially life-altering secret, Addison has to reevaluate all she thought she knew.

Emilia Cruz is a deputy bearing a heavy burden far beyond the weight of her job. After a traumatic brain injury, her husband is no longer the man she married, and Emilia’s determined to prevent others from facing the same hardship. When she’s called to the scene of an accident pointing to everything she’s fighting against, she’s determined to see justice for those wronged.

Brianne Demanno is hiding from reality. She once thrived as a counselor, but when tragedy struck a beloved client, she lost faith in herself and her purpose. When her neighbors, the Kilbourns, are thrown into crisis, Brianne’s solitary life is disrupted and she finds herself needed in a way she hasn’t been for too long.

As the lives of these women intersect, they can no longer dwell in the memory of who they’ve been. Can they rise from the wreck of the worst moments of their lives to become who they were meant to be?

      Yesterday I shared the first few lines from Blind Dates, Bridesmaids, and Other Disasters by Aspen Hadley. I’m just starting chapter 10, so I’ll share a line from there.
      “Sunday night I was lounging in the comfy over-stuffed chair in the corner of my room, flipping through an old copy of Pride and Prejudice that I’d read a few times.”
      Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. ❤📖

    She was different. I knew this when I was just a kid. Not in the sense I know now, but rather as an uneasy feeling in my stomach, an anxiety I wasn’t old enough to recognize. I was fair, she was a brunette. This line is from Sisters of The Undertow by Johnnie Bernhard More Thank I Remember sounds like a very good read! I love the cover also, it is Beautiful! thank you for sharing about it. Have a Great weekend. God Bless you.
