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 A Cowboy Thanksgiving by Melinda Curtis because it’s SEPTEMBER and I’m sooooooo ready for FALL!!! And this cover definitely puts me in an apple-spice-and-everything-nice kind of mood.
and the first lines of the prologue are…
“There were times when twelve-year-old Beauregard Franklin Monroe felt like he was on top of the world. This wasn’t one of those times.”
A holiday visit…
Or a season for love?
As an orphan, Maxine Holloway has never known what “family” truly feels like. That is, until Max and her daughter spend Thanksgiving in Second Chance, Idaho, with the boisterous and prominent Monroes—including ridiculously handsome cowboy Bo Monroe. For the first time ever, Max doesn’t feel like an outsider. But can she let down her guard enough to let the Monroes—and especially Bo—be her home beyond the holidays?

Prologue Hanford, Washington November 23, 1988
The November wind blew across the almost barren plain, attempting to leach any warmth from the man’s black wool coat.
getting ready to read that one soon – can’t wait!
My first line this week is from The Bride of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep:
September afternoons were meant for soft whisper ps and stolen kisses, not ash and soot and the gangrenous eye of a ruthless taskmaster.
ooo i love that line – definitely ropes you in (as if I needed a reason to want to read a new Michelle Griep book lol)
It was not the sort of day when bad things happened. Harvest Moon by Denise Hunter

“Gina was surprised at the size of the ranch.”

I’m reading another book by Karen Witemeyer: Full Steam Ahead. The first line is: “Passengers jockeyed for position along the steamboat Louisiana’s railings, waving and calling merry farewells to the crowd lining the levee.”
Have a great holiday weekend!
