Fun fact: This is my 200th First Line Friday Post! Hooray!

and the first line is…

Laurel Donovan had no reason to be anxious.


He doesn’t think he deserves a family…

But now he has a daughter.

Stunned to discover he has a child, Wes Bishop isn’t sure he’s father material. But his adorable daughter needs him, and he can’t help feeling drawn to her mother, Laurel Donovan—a woman he’s finally getting to know. But can this sudden dad overcome a past tragedy that has him convinced he’s not meant to be a husband or a father…and make a promise of forever?

    Three minutes into dessert, Serena MacDonald Stewart was already checking the time on her mobile phone, concocting a quick escape.

    “A Father’s Promise” by Mindy Obenhaus sounds like a wonderful book and is already on my TBR list. Great cover!

    My first line –
    “If you don’t get your fanny out of that dressing room in the next thirty seconds, I’ll come in and drag you out.”
    WED, READ & DEAD by V. M. Burns

    My first line this week is from an Appalachian Summer by Ann Gabhart:
    May 20, 1933
    Piper Danson’s cheeks hurt from smiling for what seemed like hours with no relief in sight.
    Excellent book as always from Ann.

  6. Gloria A

    My first line is from A Walk Along the Beach by Debbie Macomber:
    “He’s cute.” My sister Harper stage-whispered when i joined her at the table in Bean There, my small coffee shop in Oceanside along the Washington coast.
    Happy 4th of July!

  7. Anne

    A captivating and lovely story. She wakes a little after midnight, too hot and with the sheets tangled around her legs. The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell.

  8. Lynn Brown

    Finding out you have a daughter and coming to adjust to that sounds like a good story. Maybe falling in love with the mother. thanks for the chance to get it.

  9. Alicia Haney

    This book sounds intriguing and like a very good page turner! I would love to read it. I Love the cover, it looks so tender!

  10. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first couple of lines from Molly by Sarah Monzon: I’m currently on chapter 6, so I will share from there.
    “An eighty-hour work week — that’s all the hospital was allowed to work the interns and residents per the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. But when I’d gently reminded Dr. Feinburg of that fact after he’d assigned me to continue care for the patient admitted earlier, I’d been loudly and matter-of-factly put in my place.”
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with family fun and relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚
