  1. WHEW! You have been busy! I’m finally reading Roseanna White’s Ladies of the Manor series.

    August 1912

    She could have been more than she was.

    The Reluctant Duchess by Roseanna White


  2. Happy Friday! I really enjoy Christy’s books! My first line (actually first 3 lines) is from His Secret Alaskan Heiress by Belle Calhoune: ” ‘Here it is. Fresh out of the oven. One reindeer pizza with feta and spinach,’ Sophie announced in a chirpy voice as she set the order down in the middle of the table.”


  3. Love that first line!

    My first line is from To The Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden.

    “Jenny Bennett woke as pebbles clattered against the window.”


  4. Good morning Erin!

    I am currently reading The American Heiress Brides Collection which has 9 novellas. This first line is taken from the 7th novella in the collection:
    A Family Inheritance by Lisa Karon Richardson…

    “Anne Shepherd nibbled on the tip of one silk-gloved finger as she craned to see the length of the railroad track.”

    Blessings, Tina


  5. Hi Beth! It sounds like you’ve had a busy birthday time, although cleaning out basements is not on my list of fun things to do on my birthday. 😀

    My first line is “For once in his life, Trey Walker Stafford had aced his two older brothers.” from Peace in the Valley by Ruth Logan Herne.

    I’m reading this in anticipation of meeting Ruthy in person in a couple of weeks! Woohoo!


  6. Finally have Roseanna White’s “A Name Unknown” in my hands!
    “Rosmary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.”


  7. I met Deborah Raney at a writing conference a couple weeks ago (yay!) and picked up the first book in her Chicory Inn series, Home to Chicory Lane: So, Mrs. Whitman, is everything ready?”


  8. “The sharp metallic click meant one thing. Someone had a gun pointed in Colt Stafford’s general direction.” From Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne, the first in her Double S Ranch series. I read Peace in the Valley, book three of this series, and liked it so much that I’m now preparing to read books one and two.


  9. Love the tag team! Haha! My Kindle is closest to me right now and the first book on it is Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette, “My Sandals have not crossed this threshold since I was ten.”
