Cassandra Kendrick! What have you done?


Y’all are just itching to know what sweet Cassie has gotten herself into, right?! I know I am! The small yellow print on the front cover reads, “Disguising herself as a Yankee soldier might be her only path to freedom.” What?! Wow! This is going to be good, y’all! I can feel it!

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Pink Bonnet” by Liz Tolsma:

    “Momma, Momma, watch me.”


  2. My first line is from No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky. It came out a few days ago!
    London 1909
    Katie McAlister’s heart pounded a frantic beat as she gripped the rickety railing and rushed down the back stairs.
    Great historical book!

    Really want to read Tara’s new book!


  3. I hope to read this one it looks soo good and I’ve heard wonderful things!

    Today on my blog I shared the first 2 lines from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 where I am now: “I found my father on the roof, on his knees.” It’s amazing so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time 🙂


  4. I want to read this one!!!! SO many books, so little time.

    I am sharing the first line from a TBR title on my blog today, Ever Faithful.

    Here’s the first line of my current read: “People parted around us in the courtyard.” from The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. I’m almost finished with it, and I LOVE it!


  5. I want to read this one! That cover….sigh. ?

    I’m sharing the first line from the book I’m reading, Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh. “Carly Collins hated running late.” It’s so good!!!!


  6. I have both Tara’s books on my to-read pile 🙂

    I’m sharing the opening line from The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale over on my blog today, and I’m currently reading Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson. I clicked “buy” on the first line of the sample:

    “Book Fair. The very words of the sign filled Mellie with loathing. Book Fair indeed. More like Book Unfair.”

    Quirky, and it appeals to my sense of humour. I’m halfway through and loving it! Happy reading 🙂


  7. Hi Beth Erin, I’m now wondering what she has done?

    Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Valerie Comer.

    Spencer Haviland had prided himself on planning his life to the tiniest detail.


  8. This one definitely sounds good! I’ll have to check it out. I’m sorry I’m so late this week in participating. Life has just been a bit crazy, but good. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
