Posted February 24, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, First Line Fridays, giveaway, Jill Lynn Buteyn, romance / 10 Comments

Happy Friday & 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. Today, I’m featuring the first line of The Veteran’s Vow by Jill Lynn, currently on tour with JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC (the company I own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

Ellery Watson’s job description did not include tracking down veterans at their homes to investigate why they hadn’t shown up for training, but when she realized her no-show lived in her town, she’d been unable to resist.


Could his biggest fear

be what he needs to heal?

After a traumatic brain injury, military vet Behr Delgado refuses the one thing that could help him—a service dog. But Ellery Watson is sure the perfect pup will change Behr’s life and offers to work with him one-on-one. As Behr sets about overcoming his fears, Ellery’s surprised to find herself opening up about her troubled nephew. Will family obligations force them to deny what’s in their hearts?

    My first lines come from The Element of Love by Mary Connealy.
    May 1872. Northern California
    They were running away from the threat of misery, pain, and degradation.
    And running straight toward danger. Deadly danger.
