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 When I Lost My Way by Jennifer Rodewald!

and the first line is…

Why did I take that left turn?


Their whirlwind romance takes the hard road toward happily-ever-after as disaster tests their love and their faith in God’s goodness.

Sophie Shultz smiles at her future even when she doesn’t feel like it. After a lifetime of fearing she’d never fit in anywhere, she’s found a place to belong in the small town of Big Prairie. When a country drive leaves this city girl stranded in the mud, the cowboy who stops to help gives her plenty to smile about. For real. Lance Carson is tall, handsome, and kind, if a little on the quiet side—not to mention the owner of Big Prairie’s celebrated vineyard. Her adopted hometown keeps getting better…

Lance has always preferred solitude, but when he rescues Sophie, he develops a new appreciation for companionship. It doesn’t take long for him to lose his heart as she fills the aching void life’s disappointments have left behind. But a feud with his wild brother has put him in a hard spot, pushing him to a decision that will ruin his relationship with many of Big Prairie’s citizens—and devastate Sophie. Before he can figure out how to tell her, someone tattles on his plans.

As their relationship is put to the test, conflict presses in from every side. Can this rapidly grown romance sink its roots deep enough to weather the storms, or will Lance and Sophie lose their way?

    A single, strained scan of the church’s hollowed interior was all it took for the whispers of Bear McKinley’s past to turn to bellows.

  4. Hello! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from If I Were You by Lynn Austin. I’m currently on chapter 11, so I’ll share from there.
    “USA 1950
    Eve barely slept.”
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  5. I’m sharing the first line from Stay With Me by Becky Wade on my blog today. “Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a house he owned.” Happy weekend!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Doesn’t She Look Natural?” by Angela Hunt:

    “A grieving woman, I’ve decided, is like a creme brulee: she begins in a liquid state, endures a period of searing heat, and eventually develops a scablike crust.”

    This is the first line from The Heart of a Hero by Susan May Warren:
    In the daylight, Jake Silver wasn’t the devil.

  8. F. George Dunham, III

    Hope it is right to leave a sci-fi opener, it’s romance too. From Cleavon Power’s The Rocket Man Cometh: epacube had failed, Gary broke his heart and Kathi was left hold the blood-soaked end of a kitchen knife.
