First Line Friday (week 223): All of You, Always

Posted January 29, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, Lindsay Harrel, romance / 9 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 All of You Always by Lindsay Harrel!

and the first line of All of You Always is…

“So this was Walker Beach.”


Going undercover is Bella’s only hope.

Her mission?

Convince Ben to sell his inn, and she’ll get the information needed to locate the family she’s never known.

Should be simple, right? After all, he’s behind on his mortgage, and a recent earthquake has rocked the town—and his finances. His beachfront property is ripe for the picking.

But the big-city executive didn’t count on him being so stubborn. So rooted in family and tradition and everything that small-town America stands for.

She also didn’t count on him being so attractive and wounded and … good.

And Bella has to wonder if the ends really justify the means.

But more than that—can love survive a lie?

    I was feeling fine, better than fine. I was riding high. My TV show, Josie’s Antiques, had been renewed for the fifth season, and Ty and I had just closed on the house of my dreams. What a way to start a Monday.
    HIDDEN TREASURE by Jane K. Cleland

  2. I love First Line Friday! I don’t always comment, but I’m always curious about what everyone else is reading! The book nearest me is the one I just finished and reviewed – “Tidewater Bride” by Laura Frantz!

    Alas, she was not a tobacco bride, but she had been given charge of them.

    Is it just me, or are all her heroes definitely swoon-worthy? 😘

  3. Happy Friday!
    Over on my blog I’m sharing from Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green: It’s a great story! Currently, though, I’m reading Beauty Among Ruins by J’Nell Ciesielski, so I’ll share from there.
    “‘What are you doing?’ Lily’s fingers fumbled with the ends of the linen as she double knotted them and Matron Strom stomped to a halt next to her.”
    Hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤📚

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Collision Course” by Elizabeth Goddard:

    “He’d never looked certain death in the face until today.”

    This comes from Amish Christmas Search by Debby Giusti. “I’m running out of time,” Lizzie Kaufman moaned as she reached for the polishing cloth and rubbed it over the silver teapot. Her housekeeping job at Thad Thompson’s estate in Sarasota, Florida would end Saturday, and she had yet to find information about Mr. Thompson’s twenty-five-year-old adoptive son, Andrew. The memory of what had happened three years ago continued to haunt her. The police had been convinced Andrew was out of the country the night her best friend, Emma Bontrager, had gone missing.

  6. Paula Shreckhise

    My first line is from The Vanishing at Loxby Manor by Abigail Wilson:
    I knew something was terribly wrong the moment I stepped foot back inside Loxby Manor- the pervasive restlessness of the servants, the strained silence of the front room.
