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 Something Good by Vanessa Miller. This book has been on my TBR list since I first heard about it, and I love that cover, don’t you?
and the first line of chapter one is…
These gluten-free, avocado-toast-eating, green-smoothie-drinking, bougie country folk got on Marquita Lewis’s last nerve.
When three women find their lives inextricably linked after a terrible mistake, they must work together to make the most of their futures.
Alexis Marshall never meant to cause the accident that left Jon-Jon Robinson paralyzed—but though guilt plagues her, her husband hopes to put the past behind them. After all, he’s in the middle of selling a tech business—and if Alexis admits to texting while driving, the deal could collapse and cost them millions. Meanwhile, Alexis’s life is not as shiny and perfect as it may seem from the outside. She has secrets of her own. As she becomes consumed with thoughts of the young man she hit, can she reconcile her mistake with her husband’s expectations?
Trish Robinson is just trying to hold it together after the accident that left Jon-Jon dependent and depressed. As the bills pile up, Trish and her husband, Dwayne, find themselves at odds. Trish wants to forgive and move on, but Dwayne is filled with rage toward the entitled woman who altered their lives forever. Trish can’t see how anything good can come from so much hate and strife, so she determines to pray until God intervenes. Then one afternoon Marquita Lewis rings their doorbell with a baby in her arms and changes everything.
Vanessa Miller’s latest inspirational novel reminds readers that differences may separate us, but if we cling to each other, God can bring something good out of our very worst moments.

I can certainly sympathize with Marquita. Those people can get on my nerves, too.

“The stack of cash on his desk was as close to genuine currency as squeeze cheese was to Brie.”
Malicious Intent by Lynn H. Blackburn
I don’t read a lot of suspense but I am sure liking this series (Defend and Protect).
This comes from Secrets of Their Past by Allie Pleiter: Quiet. Tessa Kennedy had forgotten how good quiet sounded. She looked out over her backyard to the glory of a Colorado mountain sunrise, watching the steam rise serenely from her coffee cup.
Sounds like an interesting book!! The past is either a wonderful place to be or the place we want to run away from! Thank God, He redeems us and makes us new!! Thanks for bringing this book to our attention. 🙂
