  1. OOOO, I need to catch up on that series, I read book #1

    My first line: Deirdre O Leary strode down the wide corridor on the second floor of Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital, her stomach quivering with each step.

    From Love’s Fatihful Promise – Susan Anne Mason (Courage to Dream Book 3)

    1. Yay, Melony!!! I just read Love’s Faithful Promise this week, LOVE IT!!! I completely gushed over it in my review, LOL!

  2. This series in on my MUST own list!

    This book stems from an extraordinary dream I had in early 1995. The Final Quest by Rick Joyner

    HAPPY FRIDAY!

    1. Happy Friday to you, Caryl! I need to get book 1 of this series. Thanks for sharing!

  3. My son picked my book this week…It is Charles Dickens Four Complete Novels…So I will share a first line from each one on each site. Yay…”My father’s name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Phillip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip.” Great Expectations

  4. Yay! So fun! I have this one sitting on my shelf waiting to be read too (for a post next week…). LOL.

    My first line:

    Haley
    Summer 1996
    Heart’s Bend, Tennesee

    The scent of rain laced teh afternoon breeze as it shoved through summer-green trees, ramming ominous black clouds together like a craggy mountain ridge.
    ~The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck

  5. what a fantastic first line! I love this series! My first line at the moment is from Mattie’s Pledge by Jan Drexler – “Mattie.” Yep. LOL. that’s the first line 😉

    1. That first line rocks! Also, I admire your willpower, it’s hard to stop at one when they are short like that!!!

  6. There were few better pleasures in life, thought Jane Darling, than to sit on the screened side porch on a Saturday morning in June, in the white wicker chair, with her coffee and oatmeal and listen to the day wake up around here. (whew–long first sentence–almost the whole first paragraph too!)
    They Danced On by Carre Armstrong Gardner

  7. Thanks for the welcome, Beth Erin, I am thrilled to be apart of First Line Fridays. My first line comes from Rachel Hauck’s new book A Royal Christmas Wedding that releases on October 18th.
    If she closed her eyes, she could pretend nothing had changed at the Rib Shack since Daddy died.

  8. The body was lying on the swing on the back deck, the wooden seat swaying slowly back and forth. (I just won this on Goodreads, and it arrived yesterday lol. It’s a cozy mystery called Paws and Effect by Sofie Kelly.)

    1. The title sounds cute but the first line sure starts the story off with a bang!

  9. The book nearest me just came in my mail. Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander. “In an upstairs room as neglected as all the others, AJ Sullivan flicked the grime from a broad fireplace mantel, then rubbed his fingers on his jeans. Mahogany.”

  10. I just got Close to You in the Mail! The Pathetic state of Allision Shire’s existence was perfectly summed up by the size-twelve prosthetic fee mocking her from the floor of the Mercedes minibus.

    1. Goodreads giveaways are the easiest to enter but it’s been a long time since I won one 😀 Congratulations!
