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. I hope those of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! I’m ready to start spotlighting Christmas reads in my First Line Friday posts now, so today I’m featuring the first line of Christmas Takeover by Pat Simmons! I got to meet Pat in person at the JustRead Rendezvous last week, and let me tell you – she is a hoot! I loved getting to know her!


Christmas Takeover by Pat Simmons

and the first line of Christmas Takeover is…

Incompatibility was the reason Parke “Pace” Jamieson VIII was single this holiday season.


The next generation of the Jamiesons want to make this the best Christmas celebration ever. Presents aren’t required. With the help of their Robnett cousins, sisters Kami and Victoria are creating traditional and new dishes for their family. What’s not on the menu is romance. But the holidays are the perfect time to fall in love. Who can resist, and who is willing to take the chance? Enjoy this holiday novella.

    I’m reading “Tacos for Two” by Betsy St. Amant. The first line is: “If Rory Perez could find a way to wad all the cilantro in the entire world into a ball and hurl it into outer space, it still wouldn’t be far enough removed for her preference.”
