First Line Friday: A Messed-Up Match

Happy Friday, reader friends, and welcome to MARCH! I’ve been itching for some getaway reads and today’s featured book Matches that description! Just one more month until my cabin fever is cured by camping season… at least that’s when our local favorites will reopen all the facilities (these are necessary for our family of 6, even with the travel trailer)!

As I pine for a seasonal shift in the weather, check out the current giveaways (in the sidebar) and recent reviews then open the book nearest you and share the first line!


A Messed-Up Match by Jessica R. Patch

These were the kinds of days Neeley Valentine was thankful for being a granny-panty kind of girl.


Jessica Patch cracks me up! Plus, you just can’t beat the setting of this new release! I love Jessica’s previous romance novellas and Jill’s book (the first of this series) was sweet, steamy, and fun!

Hop over to the Resort to Romance series spotlight for more information, including a list of the entire series (available for $0.99 each until the release dates). The entire series will be available in the Kindle Unlimited program but my subscription just lapsed… sadness!

  1. Some calls went wrong. Terribly wrong. Deputy Kendal McKade’s gut screamed this was one of those calls.

  2. Happy Friday!

    I’ve shared the first line from The Deceived by Kelly Harrel over on my blog. But, I am currently reading Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews. OH. MY. WORD! Is this book AMAZING!!!! I’m just starting chapter 12, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Babylon’s coolest months were warmer than Jerusalem’s winter, and my small world of friendships was warmer still.”

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


  3. Happy Friday & Happy Weekend! My first line is from “The Curse of Misty Wayfair” by Jaime Jo Wright:

    “Melancholy was a condition of the spirit and the soul, but also of the mind.”


  4. On my blog this week I shared the first line from Uninvited by Beckie Lindsay but I’m currently reading Vivir el Dream by Allison K Garcia (Yes, it’s written in *mostly* English but anything in Spanish shares the translation). I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Linda grumbled as she changed from her pajamas into jeans and a t-shirt.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
