Posted September 25, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, romance / 13 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 Until I Met You by Tari Faris, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

Today was a new start, and this time running back home wasn’t an option.


When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.

All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town’s new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints–and possibly even his heart?

Novelist Tari Faris invites you back to the small town with a big heart in this second book in the Restoring Heritage series.

    From A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano: “I say Tressa Harlowe’s dead. It’s the only explanation for it.” Granted that is two lines but Tressa is the MAIN character!

    As a book lover born in Michigan, I’m quite interested in reading this book, which would be a first for me written by Tari Faris.

    • Happy Friday! 🙂
      I’m currently reading A Haven for Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason. It’s an excellent story! I’m just beginning chapter 21, so I’ll share from there.
      “I’m taking Sofia out for a while,” Darius said to his mother as they finished up the dishes.
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Without Proof” by Janet Sketchley:

    “The doorbell echoed from the main floor.”

    Thank you for being part of the book tour for “Until I Met You” by Tari Faris. Sounds like a fabulous book and one I would greatly enjoy having the opportunity to read.

    My first line – “Lilly, I have bad news.” Delia Greenwood said quietly, leaning in towards her friend Lilly Jayne so that others couldn’t overhear her.

  5. Janine Rosche’s debut This Wandering Heart – “Ever since she was seventeen, Kiera Knudsen’s internal compass needle failed to point north.” Such a fun book – Can’t wait for her second next month!

  6. This looks like a good book and I keep reading positive reviews! Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Farm Stand by Amy Clipston: “Salina Petersheim huffed as she pulled two wagons piled high with boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables across the parking lot at the Bird-in-Hand marketplace.” I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

    Hannah Currie’s debut novel, “Heart of a Royal” :
    If mortification could kill, I’d be six feet under.
    Sweet princess story. Looking forward to reading Tari Faris’s debut next!! 🥰📚

  8. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from Chapter 6 of THE RED RIBBON by Pepper Basham:
    “What a horrible way to end a mighty fine kiss”

  9. Diana Hardt

    Nice cover. I really liked the blurb. It sounds like a really interesting book. Thank you for sharing.

    This comes from A Love Redeemed by Lisa Jordan. For the first time in forty-eight hours, Isabella could breathe. She was home safely, and everything would be okay now. Even if she didn’t know what that looked like just yet. All she wanted was to crawl into her childhood bed and pull the covers over her head until the humiliation of the last forty-eight hours was nothing more than a distant memory.
