Posted March 6, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, Jennifer Rodewald, romance / 18 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 Always You, by Jennifer Rodewald!

and the first line is…

She was gonna throw up.


They made a pact of friendship. Love was not supposed to be part of the deal.

Lauren is desperate to escape the massive shadow of her father’s and sister’s political careers.

Matt is running from the biggest disappointment of his life.

After a messy meeting in a snowbound airport, they launch a new friendship, founded on a mutual love for the Lord and an agreement of respect. They find themselves working together at the Lake Shore Resort, thankful to have each other as they each carve out a fresh start. But as the winter season wears on, and through a few interesting predicaments, one begins to feel more, and the other…well. Maybe neither knows what they really want. Already wounded from the things they’ve left behind, Matt and Lauren wrestle with what comes next. Afraid to move forward. Not wanting to go back.

Each must face a dilemma that only the hand of the Potter can smooth into a hopeful, promising future. Can they surrender past hurts, as well as their future hopes and plans and trust the good intentions of the God they both love?

    I am working my way through the Montana Marshalls by Susan May Warren. This first line is from the third book of the series: FORD.
    If Ford didn’t get his head in the game, they were doomed.

    In my opinion, only the coldest heart could resist a puppy. Beverly Ruchart apparently possessed an artic heart.

    The summer storm lit up the night sky in a jagged display of energy, lightning streaking and fragmenting between towering thunderheads. By Dee Henderson Danger In the Shadows

  4. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line comes from The Blue Cloak by Shannon McNear
    June1,1797 Knox County, Tennessee
    It was unbecoming to be jealous of a dear friend’s marriage.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Take a Chance on Me” by Becky Wade:

    “The hospital’s electronic doors whooshed open as Penelope Quinn rushed toward the emergency room.”

  6. Teresa Warner

    The castle was Claire’s idea, yo begin with. The Sullivan Sisters by Kathryn Ormsbee

  7. I’ve been eyeing that book – I’ve never read anything by Jen Rodewald but I need to correct that! I’m currently reading Sweet on You by Becky Wade and the first line is “Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he’d last seen her. I hope you have a nice weekend!

  8. Quite a first line! I’m sharing from A Convenient Fiction by Mimi Matthews on my blog today. This is the second line:

    “The water lapped over her head, leaves and debris floating along the surface in the midmorning sun.”

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
