Happy Christmas Eve & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. (My apologies for not posting last week – you can read my explanation here) Today, I’m featuring the first line of An Endless Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti, one of my very favorite Christmas re-reads!

and the first line is…

What did she say?”


An award-winning novelist’s heartwarming story about family and love lost, found, and finally truly revealed at Christmas.

Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says “no.” Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.

    This comes from A California Christmas by Brenda Novak: Dallas Turner figured he shouldn’t be surprised when he walked into his mother’s kitchen to find someone who wasn’t part of the family in her kitchen.

    “Grace Ferguson gripped the Model T’s window frame and leaned forward, breath caught in a suppressed gasp.” I’m reading “The Mistletoe Countess” by Pepper Basham. It’s a wonderful Christmas read!
