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 The Story Hunter by Lindsay A. Franklin, currently on tour with JustRead Tours (the company I co-own with my book sisters)!

and the first line is…

I stood before the capital of Urian, unable to breathe.


SERIES: The Weaver Trilogy #3
May 19, 2020
Enclave Escape
PAGES: 322

Redeeming the past is a fatal quest.

In the wake of a deadly coup, the capital city of Urian has descended into chaos. Heartbreak and bloodshed await Tanwen and her friends as they discover the unlikeliest leader now rules Tir.

If they want to save the realm, Tannie and the Corsyth weavers must rescue Queen Braith and unmask the Master, ending the strife once and for all. But the success of their hunt depends upon an ally no one trusts.

The Master has a new target in sight-fragile, trauma-scarred Digwyn, whose unique weaving ability could turn the tide of any war. When the desire for vengeance proves too powerful for Digwyn to resist, Tanwen must face a terrifying truth: the fate of Tir rests in the hands of a volatile, shattered girl.

    My first lines are from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch:

    Seaton Estate Berkshire, England January 4, 1813

    “You’ll do as you’re told if you know what’s good for you. I won’t be humiliated again.”

    Just finished this phenomenal book!

    • Happy Friday! 🙂
      On my blog I’m sharing from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette. I’m currently on chapter 20, so I’ll share from there.
      “My family and Hakim’s family, along with Baz and his wife and daughters, were gathered around the long table in the courtyard, oil lamps flickering joyfully along its length.”
      Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

    Six pounds of pot, a .38 Special, and a by-the-book cop. Teagan O’Rourke rolled the words around in her head.

    From Closer Than She Knows by Kelly Irvin

  3. Gloria A

    I am also reading The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch and this is the first line from Chapter 4.

    Diana had no choice but to hurry from the carriage and up the stairs, since her father had an iron grip on her wrist and marched ahead of her into the house.

  4. Happy Friday! My current read is Meant for Her by Joy Avery Melville. I will share the first line from Chapter 3, which is where I’m at right now. “The scent of grassy hay, sweet feed, warm horse flesh, and leather tack calmed Candi when she stepped through the main door of the stable.” I wish you a wonderful weekend!

    “Love is in the air…” I sang as I walked to campus in my cheetah sandals.
    COMING UP MURDER by Mary Angela

  6. Becky Smith

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “More Than Friends” by Autumn Macarthur:

    “Catriona Maclean returned the phone to its niche, slumped onto the worn oak bench in the entrance hall of the manse, and groaned out loud. She needed a man.”
