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 delighted to feature the first line of Memory Lane by Becky Wade. I’m a huge fan of Becky Wade’s books, including this series, and I’m SO thrilled that she’s one of the keynote speakers at this year’s JustRead Rendezvous! This author/reader event will take place in the Chicago area on Friday, November 15th. More details below – I’d love to see you there!

Memory Lane by Becky Wade

and the first line of Memory Lane is

The day Remy Victoria Reed fished a drowning man from the Atlantic Ocean began in the most ordinary way.

Christy Award Hall of Fame Author

After surviving a trauma several years back, Remy Reed relocated to a cottage on one of Maine’s most remote islands. She’s arranged her life just the way she wants it, spending her time working on her wood sculptures and soaking in the beauty of nature. It’s quiet and solitary—until the day she spots something bobbing in the ocean.

Her binoculars reveal the “something” to be a man, and he’s struggling to keep his head above water. She races out to save him and brings him into her home. He’s injured, which doesn’t detract from his handsomeness nor make him any easier to bear. He acts like a duke who’s misplaced his dukedom . . . expensive tastes, lazy charm, bossy ideas.

Remy would love nothing more than to return him to his people, but he has no recollection of his life prior to the moment she rescued him. Though she’s not interested in relationships other than the safe ones she’s already established, she begins to realize that he’s coming to depend on her.

Who is he? What happened that landed him in the Atlantic Ocean? And why is she drawn to him more and more as time goes by?

There’s no way to discover those answers except to walk beside him down memory lane.

Travel to the rocky coast of Maine for “opposites attract” banter, witty humor, a fascinating mystery, and destiny-changing love. This sweet contemporary romance kicks off Becky Wade’s new Sons of Scandal series!

    When Brett Richardson first saw the plume of smoke as he drove through the streets of Wychmere Bay, his hometown on Cape Cod, he thought he was imagining things.

  2. I looked down at the paper on my desk. The “Getting to Know You” paper.
    This is a middle grade book: The Wish by Barbara O’Connor (personal note: the first line isn’t riveting, but the book is!)

  3. LOVED that book!!!! Here’s the book I’m reading now …

    Libby Sheffield had never stopped to wonder what she would take specific note of if she ever stumbled upon a dead body.
    The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond, Jaime Jo Wright

    This is a great book. I really enjoyed it. I am about to start Hidden in the Night by Elizabeth Goddard.
