I’m not a stalker, Emma Wilder assured herself while attempting to peer inconspicuously out the front windows of Len’s grocery store.


I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing this title for Hope By The Book magazine‘s online bonus content. I found this story to be refreshingly charming and delightfully heartfelt.

  1. Cute first line! I am sharing the first line of How The Light Gets In by Jolina Petersheim on my blog. I’m finishing up Hidden Peril by Irene Hannon today before diving in.


  2. I am sharing the first line from An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund, Book 1 in her An Uncertain Choice series:

    “My slippered feet slapped the dirt road, and my heart hammered against my chest like a battering ram.”

    I first read A Worthy Rebel, Book 5 in this series which came out this year. I loved it so much, I have to read the entire series.

    Who I am, and all I believe, is marred with just one glance into angry steel-blue eyes.

  4. Sounds so good! Happy Friday! My first line is from “Liza’s Second Chance” by Molly Jebber:

    “Liza Schrock clenched her teeth and dug her fingers in the fresh dough in her Amish bakery.”


    1. “Amish bakery” caught my eye. I’ve have this on my TBR list! Amish is a newer genre for me and I’ve been enjoying reading them. I can’t wait to get started on this one.


  5. I love the Love Inspired series…I’m so sad about the historical line though. Yet, I am so glad to have so many of those in my book collection. 🙂 Happy reading Beth!


  6. Fun first line!

    I’m sharing the first line from The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings on my blog today. I’m hearing great things about it, and am looking forward to reading it.


  7. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright but I’m currently reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (11) here: “A new chapter in a novel is something like a new scene in a play; and when I draw up the curtain this time reader–you must fancy you see a room in the George Inn at Millcote, with such a large-figured papering on the walls as in rooms have; such a carpet, such furniture, such ornaments on the mantlepiece, such prints–including a portrait of George the Third and another of the Prince of Wales, and a representation of the death of Wolfe.” I honestly don’t know how I made it this far into my life without reading it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂


  8. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green. It’s so amazing!!! I’m currently on chapter 22, so I’ll leave the first line from there.

    “The river had grown narrow and felt even smaller since Bright Star and Joseph had arrived with Gaspard Fontaine.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! ?❤?


  9. I’m sharing from Excellent Women by Barbara Pym on my blog today, but I haven’t started reading it yet, so here is a not-so-randomly chosen line from the first page:

    “I suppose an unmarried woman just over third, who lives alone and has no apparent ties, must expect to find herself involved or interested in other people’s business, and if she is also a clergyman’s daughter then one might really say that there is no hope for her.”

    Have a great weekend!
