Happy Friday, reader friends! I’m so glad you’ve joined us for one last 2016 FLF!

I’m wrapping up December with one last Christmas novella.

Wrapped in Red by Meghan M. Gorecki

Goodreads | Amazon

Wrapped in Red by Meghan Gorecki

“Magical? More like laughable. It’s only November.” The first snow of the season was flying so thick and fast that Merry pulled over onto the pot-hole-riddled shoulder and turned on her blinkers.

Yes, I can count and it’s a good think I’m not a stickler for rules around here. Sometimes that first line just begs for another few lines. 😉

  1. Yes, I added two lines for my post today. 🙂

    Here is my first line:

    Waves of Mercy
    by Lynn Austin

    Lake Michigan

    “I am living my nightmare. A violent storm has overtaken our steamship, and as we mount high on the crest of a wave one moment, then plunge sickeningly into a watery trough the next, I am certain we are about to sink.”

    Happy reading and Happy New Year!


  2. I loved Wrapped in Red – great choice!

    My first line is from For the Record by Regina Jennings:

    “Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privilege of belonging to Texas. Not that he despised the rest of the world for its misfortune, but there was a difference.”


  3. This week mine is from “Charles Brandon: The King’s Man” by Sarah Bryson.

    “Charles Brandon was an enigmatic, charismatic man, rising from mere boyhood friend of a future king to flirting with a European duchess, marrying the Dowager Queen of France, being created the Duke of Suffolk, and not to mention becoming the leading magnate in Lincolnshire by the end of his life.”

    Happy Reading!


  4. My world shattered last winter. A hairline crack formed, and my life perched on the edge of an abyss, set to topple at the slightest breeze. But instead of a breeze, I got a whirlwind…in the form of a positive pregnancy test. Justified by Varina Denman


  5. “Lydia King took a tentative step into Mr. Lowe’s hazy office, feeling like Bob Cratchit approaching Scrooge.” ~ A Heart Most Certain by Melissa Jagears


  6. “I need to breathe, but I can’t. I suck at the air, but the harder I try, the more impossible it seems.” Breaking Matthew, Jennifer H. Westall

    Have a lovely New Years everyone ☺


  7. Toronto, September 1910
    A murder scene is no place for a proper lady.

    The Bachelor Girl’s Guode to Murder by Rachel McMillan


  8. I’ll share the opening lines of my favourite Christmas read: ‘Ordinary Snowflakes’ by Jennifer Rodewald.

    “I almost stepped on it.
    A small brown box with a simple strip of burlap around it lay conspicuously on my tiny front porch. Like a wordless little message. ‘I see you.’ ”

    Perfect any time of the year ????


  9. Looks like a cute novella!
    Here’s my line 🙂
    She would die today one way or another~ Giver of Wonders
    I very much enjoyed this Christmas novel!
