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 Behind Love’s Wall by Carrie Fancett Pagels, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).
and the first line is…
A hatchet, a Bible, and a revolver were Lily’s best friends – and Cousin Clem next door with his shotgun.
The Grand Hotel Slowly Reveals Her Secrets
Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.
Two successful women, a hundred-and-twenty-years apart, build walls to protect their hearts. Modern-day Willa, a successful interior decorator, is chosen to go to Mackinac Island and consult for the Grand Hotel’s possible redesign. During work on a room, she discovers a journal detailing the struggles of a young woman, Lily—which reveals dark secrets. The renowned singer wasn’t who she pretended to be.
As Willa reaches out to Lily’s descendant, a charismatic and prominent landscape artist, she lets down her guard. Should she share the journal with him—revealing hidden history—or once again erect a wall as she struggles to redesign both the Grand and her life?
