First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books


The Ornament Keeper by Eva Marie Everson

Publisher: New Hope Publishers
Release Date: September 24, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Holiday

Award-winning author Eva Marie Everson wraps up a Christmas story of hope, love, and forgiveness just in time for the holidays.

The Ornament Keeper, a contemporary Christmas novella, features Felicia and Jackson Morgan who are spending their first Christmas apart after twenty years of marriage. But a lifetime of gifted ornaments helps Felicia piece together the story of their marriage and the one mistake of unforgiveness she made before they said, “I do.”

Can these memory-filled ornaments reunite this family before Christmas? Only time will tell.

I pushed the Keurig lever down on a decaf dark roast pod. “I’ve made a decision,” I said, hoping my voice sounded as sure as I wanted it to. Because I had. More or less. Sort of.

  1. “The Ornament Keeper” by Eva Marie Everson sounds like a wonderful read and one I can’t wait to explore. Thanks for being part of the book tour.

    My first line is –
    At her director’s prompting, Katlynn Brennon aimed her sincerest smile into the television camera, stuck our her forehead and tipped down her chin for her best angle.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Rebecca’s Legacy” by Betty Thomason Owens:

    “Are you crazy? My father’s going to kill me.”


  3. I’m featuring lines from A.K. MacBride’s upcoming release Shattered on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Rachael Brownell’s Chasing Fate. It’s my quirky blind date with a book this month.

    ”What do you mean, you quit your job?”

    Happy Reading!


  4. Happy Friday!?

    My first lines come from Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane by JoAnn Ross…..

    Life, as Aiden Mannion knew firsthand, could be dangerous. Anything could happen. You could be hit by a taxi while sightseeing in Times Square. Run headfirst into a tree while shushing down a diamond run pretending you were Bode Miller.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Fall!?


  5. This is on my “want” list. I’m sharing from a Christmas novella on my blog. Here I’ll share from Belle: An Amish Retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Sarah Price:

    “Sunflowers always made Belle happy. Very happy.”

    Happy Fall!


  6. Decaf coffee? What’s the point? Apart from that faux pas, this sounds like a good story. There aren’t enough novels about staying married (rather than getting married).

    I’ve been on a romantic suspense reading kick recently, so my first line is from Tell Her No Lies by Kelly Irvin. It’s an unusual first line, but the novel definitely ticks all the romantic suspense boxes!


  7. The book I shared this week is Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble but I’m currently reading an ARC of The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall so I’ll share the first line here: “What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down… down… beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?” I can honestly say I don’t want to find out! Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time! 🙂
