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 Robin’s Greeting by Wanda E. Brunstetter, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

Belinda… Belinda … Belinda…


A Season of Hope Is Coming 

For the past two years Belinda King, along with her two grown daughters and teenage son, has been struggling to keep the family greenhouse running. Despite disconcerting events that have threatened to put them out of business, they have survived two growing seasons. And now Belinda can focus on the two suitors vying for her attention. Herschel Fisher, a new acquaintance, makes her feel relaxed, and Monroe Esh, an admirer from her past, reminds her of her youth.

But just when Belinda thinks she can choose between her suitors, life throws more trials her way. Her son, Henry, becomes bitter about the idea of her dating anyone, and attacks on the greenhouse start again.

When can Belinda hope to experience the peace and love her weary heart longs for?

    The brutal killer put a knife to her mother’s throat. Addison Leigh’s mother blinked in terror, her eyes wide.
    HOURS TO KILL by Susan Sleeman

    I keep hearing about this book. I need to check it out. I just finished Picture Perfect Frame by Lynn Cahoon last night and this is the first line from it. (the whole quote)
    “Creation is the heart of art. No matter if the product isn’t quite what you want, the act of creation is one of rejuvenation. People need to celebrate not only successes of their work, but their failures as well.”

    This comes from Abducted in Alaska by Darlene L. Turner. Border Patrol officer Hannah Morgan stepped through the doors of the Canadian Services Border Agency station in Beaver Creek, Yukon. Strong winds assaulted her exposed face, but she didn’t mind. Movement at the tree line caught her eye, jarring her from the winter conditions. What was that?

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Sing Me Back Home” by Amanda Mason:

    “Lane McCay strummed his fingertips against the steering wheel to the beat of the country music blaring from his truck’s radio – his fingertips being the only part of his body that he could move without regret.”

    Some men enter a woman’s life and screw it up forever. From Janet Evanovich’s Twisted Twenty-Six
    And truer words were never spoken.
