  1. Congrats on your new milestone! I love the Facebook live chats, getting to not only see what’s going on with authors but also getting to hear it.

    Here’s the first line from a book I hope to get to this weekend:

    FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson had survived missions in the Middle East, been detained in Iran, escaped an ISIS death trap, and still walked and talked.

  2. Ooooo that looks like a good one!!

    Congrats on the Facebook milestone! It’s definitely my favorite social media outlet and the one I spend the most time on. Love live chats, although it seems that I always miss them! Thank goodness you can still view them after.

    Happy Friday 🙂


  3. Contrats on hitting 1000! Over on my blog I am featuring the WWII-era novel, The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin. But here I will share from Jill Eileen Smith’s latest, A Passionate Hope.


  4. WOWZERS! Congratulations on the Facebook milestone! 🙂

  6. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from the book I’m reading now, Liza’s Second Chance by Molly Jebber!

    Lisa Schrock, clenched her teeth and dug her fingers in the fresh dough in her Amish bakery. The forced smiles, nods to her friends’ compliments, and suppressing the truth about her husband had been difficult, but she’d managed to keep her miserable marriage a secret.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!


  7. Whoa! That is a great attention grabber.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am showcasing Naomi Rawlings’s novel Love’s Bright Tomorrow. Here I will share the first line from the novel I am currently reading, Mary and Bright by Shannon Graupman.

    “Mary Bradford’s heart raced as she sat on the edge of her king sized bed — her gaze affixed on the single white sheet of paper resting on the nightstand.”


  8. Definitely a great first line! I haven’t heard of this author before, so thanks for the introduction!

    I’m sharing the first line from Aint Misbehaving by Marji Laine on my blog. I’m currently reading My Sister’s Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. It’s the middle book in a trilogy and I really shouldn’t have read the third book first, because it did ruin some of the big-picture suspense. Here’s the first line:

    The cry for help came as I was coasting toward the bicycle rack at the far end of the story.


  9. My first line is from a book but Andrea Boeshaar: My Heat Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley. Part of the first page fourth paragraph down.

    A light breeze cooled the sudden perspiration on Mac’s brow. The war was over. Besides, Father was counting on him to make something of himself— prove the gossips wrong— in this new land in the Shenandoah Valley.


  10. Congratulations on your FB milestone! That’s great!

    The first line on my blog is from a novel by Michelle Griep, The Captive Heart. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter 5 from the book I’m currently reading, The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller “It was entirely possible that the excitement of last month’s come-out ball was about to be surpassed.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  11. Happy Friday! (What’s left!) My first lines (sorry, but I included the 2nd) is from These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart:

    “Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared.”


  12. Congrats! And yippee for a book I’ve never even heard of. I’ll have to check this one out!

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh’s latest release, The Awakening, on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from my current read, ‘Weaver’s Needle’ by Robin Caroll:

    “Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.”

    Have a great weekend. 🙂


  13. Congratulations Beth! That’s an intriguing first line.

    I’m sharing the first line from Susie Finkbeiner’s A Trail of Crumbs on my blog, but here is the first line from the novel that follows, A Song of Home:

    “It was no surprise to me that I’d lost track of time.”

    Happy Friday 😀
