  1. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It’s a really good book! I’m currently on chapter 25, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. ?❤?


  2. Today’s the day! Adrenaline and excitement surged through Gideon Kaiser as he parked his buggy next to the midwife’s buggy. He couldn’t wait to hold his first boppli – and just after Thanksgiving! An extra blessing to give thanks for.

  3. My first line is from The Express Bride by Kim Woodhouse:
    St. Louis, March 1834
    With shaking limbs, she climbed into the plush carriage awaiting her, the precious bundle in her arms worth far more than the money, trinkets and trunks of clothing she left behind.
    Wonderful book. Check out the whole series of The Daughters of the Mayflower.


  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Edge of Truth” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    “The hair on Kara Nelson’s neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn’t right.”


  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Crossing at Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman on my blog today. I’m only a few pages in, and this is my favorite line so far:

    “Her stomach did a slow roll at the unexpected lilt of an Irish brogue.”


  6. I’m looking forward to reading Toni’s book. 🙂

    Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet W. Ferguson.

    Love, like art, took on different forms with each creator.
