First Line Friday (and a Giveaway!): The Inn at Walker Beach

Posted October 1, 2021 by meezcarrie in contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, Lindsay Harrel, romance / 29 Comments

Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! Without further ado… 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 Inn at Walker Beach by Lindsay Harrel, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

She could feel it in her bones – this place was built for something more.


A dream years in the making becomes reality with the inaugural meeting of The Barefoot Sisterhood…

Jenna Wakefield has been through a lot in her twenty-seven years—losing her mother, becoming a teen mom, and battling depression, just to name a few. And working a dead-end job, barely paying her bills, and fighting unrequited feelings for her boss aren’t exactly part of the life she always imagined.

With her six children grown and her husband constantly traveling for work, Elise Griffin finds herself utterly without purpose for the first time ever at age sixty-three. But “retirement” isn’t as wonderful as it might sound—it gives her far too much time to think about the affair her husband had a year ago … the one she’s never told anyone about.

When both women are invited into the mysterious Barefoot Sisterhood and asked to help restore an old beachside inn for a good cause, they find themselves supported and encouraged in new and exciting ways. This inspiration leads to dream seeking … and new romance as well.

Discover what happens when women give each other the space to finally dream—and in doing so, make the world a better place.

    I like the cover of this book and it sounds good. I received my copy of Christmas in Mistletoe Square and look forward to reading it soon. My first line is from The Christmas Clue to Finding You by Pepper Basham.
    Gran always said that the mountains “hugged” Kedgewick Creek.

    That book by Lindasy looks great!
    My first lines are by Jenny Knipfer and Under the Weeping Willows:
    Enid June 1983
    I rub my hand over my mother’s words. My throat clenches, and I hiccup, forcing back a sob. A tear lands on the lined page of the diary with a splat.
    Happy reading!

    If Rory Perez cold find a way to wad all the cilantro in the entire world into a ball and hurl it into outer space, it still wouldn’t be far enough removed for her preference. Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant.

  4. Perrianne Askew

    Secrets are like pennies. Everybody’s got one, even the poorest among us. (I chose two lines since the first one is so short) a Flicker of Light by Katie Powner.

    Widowed crones, their ragged skirts and shawls flapping in the rising gale like so many black crows, threw back grayed heads and keened a wild lament.

    We came to Birchwood Manor because Edward said that it was haunted. From the book The Clockmaker’s Daughter.
