Here’s how it all went down: She’d been sitting at the kitchen table, minding her own business, trying to eat breakfast. She’d had the newspaper in just the right position to block her view of Lu and the little glass cup that held Lu’s false teeth.

  1. Well, that put a smile on my face.

    Happy Friday!

  2. I’m featuring “The Saturday Night Supper Club” by Carla Laureano on the blog today, but my first line here will be the book I’m currently reading, “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky.

    February 1909
    Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Over on my blog, I am featuring Heather B. Moore’s novel, Worth the Risk. I am very excited to read that book. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

    Here, I will post from the novel I am currently reading, A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green. It is an AMAZING story that I am enjoying wholeheartedly. I am just starting chapter 29, so I will share the first two lines from this chapter.

    Asylum, Pennsylvania
    July 1795

    Still damp with morning’s dew, the cool earth soiled Vivienne’s apron as she knelt in her garden, tugging weeds from between iris and yarrow. Geese soared overhead, soft brown chevrons against a sky of robin’s-egg blue.

  5. Oh, Lord! False teeth in a glass are scary. . .

    I am just starting The Lying Kind by Alison James.

    You were supposed to sleep more lightly as you grew older, Rachel thought as her hand groped to shut off the chorus of crickets on her phone’s alarm, but at 6.15 a.m. most mornings she still managed to be fast asleep. Deeply asleep.

  7. Happy Friday! My first line is from Forward to What Lies Ahead by Chloe S. Flanagan:

    “Regina’s cellphone buzzed sharply, shattering the silence of her apartment and making her coffee table vibrate.”

  8. Hahaha! I remember staying at my grandparents’ place a child and waking up early one morning to get a drink of water. When I came out to the kitchen, there was one right on the bench, so I picked it up to have a drink and was greeted by a pair of false teeth. Quite the shock!

    I’m featuring Jennifer Rodewald’s Valentine’s Day novella on my blog, but at the moment I’m refreshing my memory on Mary Weber’s The Evaporation of Sofi Snow:

    “The ice-planet arrived in the dusky heat of summer twilight during Earth’s Fourth World War.”

    Have a great weekend.

  9. That’s a great first line!

    I’ve got the first line from The Saturday Night Supper club up on my blog, and I’m currently reading another great contemporary romance – Paper Hearts by Courtney Walsh. She’s one of my new favourite authors. Here’s the first line:

    “I can’t believe she did this to me again.” Abigail Pressman stared at the computer screen in disbelief.
