  1. Good morning!!! 🙂 My first line is from “Thunder on the Right,” by Mary Stewart.

    “The Hotel du Pimene, Gavarnie, takes its name from the great peak of the High Pyrenees in whose shadow, at early morning, it lies.”

    Happy Reading!


  2. Turtle Springs, Kansas
    April 1866

    Pa had some kind of nerve, up and dying like that-just when I’d gotten used to Frank being gone. Adjusting her somber bonnet, Caroline Kane exited what was now her inn, onto the boardwalk and then stepped down to the hard-packed dirt street.

    First line from Dime Novel Suitor by Carrie Fancett Pagels. This is my “debut” as a character in the story.


  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from Widow by Denise Weimer: “Oglethorpe County, Georgia, June 1857, An angel of light stood before me, blonde, beautiful, one hand behind his back.”


  4. Happy Friday! Love at First Bark was a cute story.
    My first line is:
    The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.
    “The Road to Paradise” by Karen Barnett


  5. Sweetest little puppy face EVER! My first line is from Lisa Wingate’s BEFORE WE WERE YOURS: “My story begins on a sweltering August night, in a place I will never set eyes upon.”


  6. The Lost Boy by Thomas Wolfe : Light came and went and came again, the blooming strokes of three o’clock beat out across the town in thronging bronze, light winds of April blew the fountain out in rainbow sheets, until the plume returned and pulsed, as Grover turned into the Square.


  7. The line I’m sharing here is a book my 9 year old just finished and enjoyed:
    “A bright bolt of lightning splits the dark and flickers over the skylight.”
    Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor – by: Jon Scieszka


  8. Happy Friday!

    My first line is :
    “The first inkling that something was wrong was the waking in the darkness to find the cat pawing at my face.” ~ The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
    I’ve heard great things about this book. I am really looking to reading this mystery/thriller.
    Dinh @ Arlene’s Book Club


  9. Amazing cover, amazing first line….and puppies! Amazing.

    Here’s mine from Becky Wade’s novella Then Came You: “Sylvie left me today.”


  10. “Maude Welling’s twelve-year-old brother, Jack, raced across the waxed wood floor of the soda shop, straight toward her, then skidded to a halt.”

    This first line comes from the book I am currently reading – My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island by Carrie Fancett Pagels
