Wretched, filthy dust. Brooke had almost forgotten the way it filtered in like it was part of the sunlight itself, peppered everything it touched with a powdery sheen, and drifted in the air so thick she could taste it.


I’m so excited to be reading this novel, I fell in love with Mowed Over from the Love at First Laugh romance collection.

#dealalert both the Love at First Laugh collection and today’s featured book are only $0.99 for a limited time!

  1. Loved this book! Can’t wait for the next one!

    I’ve got the first line from “Chasing Secrets” by Lynette Eason on the blog today, but I’ve just finished reading “A Rose So Fair” by Myra Johnson, so I’m going to share the first line from that here:

    “Now just you hold it right there, mister.” Rose Linwood sighted her unwelcome visitor down the length of Grandpa’s trusty Winchester.

    She’s a spunky one!


  2. Why haven’t I heard of this before? It looks really good and that cover is beautiful. Adding this to my endless TBR.

    I’m featuring “Healing Love” by Jennifer Slattery on my blog today, but I’m currently reading “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White.

    May 1914

    Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.


  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune: “Finn O’Rourke paced back and forth in terminal 27A of the Anchorage airport.”


  4. Happy Friday, Beth! Since I’ll be finishing Pepper Basham’s The Thorn Healer before lunch, I’m sharing the first line from my current Chapter 22: “I hate leaving you like this.” Catherine stilled her movements from packing her trunk, her coral walking suit an elegant fit on her delicate frame. “Not when David and Alexander could help tend the sickness.”


  5. Heather Munro gazed down Victoria Street so long, she became another gray-suited statue along the Royal Mile.
    From The Case of the Clobbered Cad by Debra E. Marvin!


  6. Good afternoon Beth!

    My first line is from Blind Spot #3 Chesapeake Valor series by Dani Pettrey.

    “Luke crouched behind an orange shipping container, dreading to think what it held.”

    Blessings, Tina


  7. Sadly to say, it’s been a week that left very little time for reading. Therefor I am still on the same book as last week.
    Life is forever chanced without her; without the sense of her somewhere near.
    Last Christmas in Paris
    by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
    LOVE the book now just find the time to read a few pages. ????


  8. Another book to check out! ????

    My first line comes from Hold the Light by April McGowan.

    “Unremarkable. Amber glanced out the steaming windowpane at the cityscape below her.”
