And this, children, is a drawing of the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Which is a very long way from Franklin, Tennessee.


I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing this book for Hope By The Book magazine‘s online bonus content. I am in awe of both the historical events and the fictional story.

  2. Happy Friday!?

    My first lines come from Restaurant Weeks are Murder by Libby Klein…….

    “I don’t care how good Dr. Oz says it is, I’m not eating vegan cheese.” Aunt Ginny took the last stuffed pheasant off the Fraser fir, wrapped it in tissue paper, and placed it in an old Woolworth’s hat box to store until next Christmas.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!?


  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines of Who I Am with You by Robin Lee Hatcher. It’s such a good book. I’m just beginning chapter 25, so I will share the first line from there.

    “Feeling elated by his day down in the valley, meeting with a financial advisor and a Realtor, Ridley rapped on Jessica’s back door.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. ?❤?


  4. Hi Beth!! I’m listening to this one on audio right now. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Carnton twice. I’m thinking about including a tidbit or two about Carnton with my review. Like: The garden was moved from it’s original spot to where it stands today because that’s where the oldest tree in the property stands – an Osage orange tree.


  5. Hi! Happy Friday.

    I shared the first couple of lines from one of my recent reads, The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi, on my blog. I loved this book so much and to celebrate its coming release (January 15) I will be sharing the first couple of lines from its prologue chapter here.

    The matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner. In the normal course of things, she did not care for punctuality. Punctuality, with its unseemly whiff of eagerness was for peasants. And she was neither a peasant nor eager to endure a meal with the mongrel heir of House Nyx.

    Hope you enjoy that. Happy weekend!


  6. I just received my copy of Hope by the Book today!! I was able to get an early copy of this one as well since I’m on a blog tour for it and loved it! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m featuring Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears but I’m currently reading The Watch on the Fencepost by Kay DiBianca so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (38) here: “Kate parked her car in the corner lot and strolled down the sidewalk toward Café Rouge.” Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend with plenty of reading time!


  7. Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Marry Me Katie (Whispers in Wyoming Book 7)” by Lisa Prysock:

    “Flight #753 to Rockport Regional, come in Rockport Regional Airport… repeat… requesting permission to make an emergency landing… repeat… Flight #753 requesting permission to make an emergency landing. Low on fuel.”


  8. I’m looking forward to this one! I’m sharing the first paragraph from a non-fiction book today, Code Name: Lise by Larry Loftis. Here is the line that follows:

    “If his instincts were right, this was a girl who would throw herself headlong into danger.”

    Happy Friday!
