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 lines of all The Christy Award 2021 Winners! I love so many things about the Christy Award winners gala, but one of my favorites is that they announce the winner of each category by reading the first line of the winning book… which makes First Line Friday the perfect way to announce them here too!

Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a house he owned.
People considered him homeless because he didn’t have an address of his own, but Harvey James would’ve been homeless even if he owned the turreted mansion off State Route 460.
The most beautiful things are those that survive a storm and find their glory in the restoration.
My future is waiting, a spark in the distance burning steadily brighter as the train approaches the city.
Lilian Blackwell held her breath and inched along the wall, praying with every footfall that Mama wouldn’t look up.
I couldn’t breathe.
Even the sky wept at the sight of him.
Across a sweep of waves, the new world called to me.
Some girls want to change the world.
