First Line Friday (week 321): Caught in the Act

Posted December 22, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, Christmas, contemporary, First Line Fridays, romance / 8 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 Caught in the Act, a Christmas rom-com from Australian author Lisa Renee! Don’t you love that cover?

and the first line is…

Page Martin pressed a finger into her ear and ground her molars as the eight-year-old angel screeched Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.


The new Creative Arts teacher, Page Martin, didn’t want to put on a Christmas play in the first place. She loved art, but in Clear Creek County, one teacher had to cover all creative aspects. Drama included.

The pressure is amped when single dad, Dion Sanders, a stakeholder expects his precious girl to sing as an angel in the production. The only problem is, she can’t sing for nuts.

Now the tourism board plans to sell tickets to raise funds to restore the old theatre. Dion offers to build stage sets in exchange for singing lessons for his daughter. Page can’t refuse.

But can she resist the growing attraction between them and pull off a stellar performance with undisciplined children wanting to improvise in a most unconventional way?

    My first line comes from the WWI book by Kate Breslin: In Love’s Time
    Whitehall, London 1918
    Would the human destruction never end?

  2. Gloria A

    Monday, November
    Outside Washington, DC
    “A third victim has been found and a serial killer is once again thought to be terrorizing the Northeast-just east of the territory peter Romanos paralyzed with his string of murders,” Rachel Goodwin reported from her position outside the prison.
    Critical Threat by Lynette Eason

  3. That looks like a fun book. I’m reading Gift of the Heart by Karen Witemeyer. The first line is: “October 1890, Hope Springs Texas ~ Ruth Fulbright held her sleeping seven-year-old daughter snugly on her lap in the middle of the stagecoach seat while the passengers who considered themselves her betters exited the conveyance.” Happy Holidays!
