FIRST LINE FRIDAYS

winter

Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

Today’s first line comes from a book I am reading next week!

40127147

 

MAISY Kelly closed the book, One Last Chance, pressed it to her chest, and sighed. Jake Sinclair, the perfect man—why did he reside only in the pages of a book? It wasn’t fair.

 

FROM GOODREADS:

A romance bookstore owner finds her own happily ever after with a single dad in a new romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Dog Has His Day.

Ryder Copeland is an accomplished architect and one heck of a father…not to mention tall and sexy. He’s everything a hero should be, and Lord knows, Maisy Kelly has read enough of her great-aunt Eloise’s romance novels to recognize one when she sees one. But like all fairy tales, Maisy can’t help but wonder if this Prince Charming is too good to be true…

Ryder is drawn to the shy, curly haired professor who hires him to convert the Victorian house she’s inherited from her aunt into a romance bookstore. Attracted to a woman for the first time since his divorce, Ryder finds himself wishing for a future with Maisy that he knows is impossible. Ryder has never wavered from his plan to leave the small town of Fairdale, North Carolina, so he can give his daughter the life she deserves. But suddenly he’s not so sure. And the closer he gets to Maisy, the harder it’s going to be to walk away…

  2. Great first lines — the eternal question. LOL! On my blog I shared the first line from We Hope for Better Things by Erin Bartels. Here I will share from Secrets at Cedar Cabin by Colleen Coble — “Bailey Fleming glanced out her patient’s window into the parking lot, but the swirling snow obscured all but the dim glow of the streetlamp.”

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Until I Met You: Brides of Seattle Prequel” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    “Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle.”

  4. Oh boy, sounds like a good read! Today on my blog I’m featuring My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge by Pepper Basham but it’s also my next read so I don’t have an extra line to share yet. Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Happy New Year! I’m sharing the first line of the ‘First January’ diary entry from D.E. Stevenson’s Mrs. Tim of the Regiment on my blog today. So here I’ll share the beginning of the ‘Tenth January’ entry:

    “Meet Nora Watt on my way home from church. She has been lying in wait for me. We agree that the sermon was slightly dull, but that the singing has improved. I see Grace hovering about but there is no escape from Nora.”

  6. Happy Friday!

    I love this cover . . . and the opening line hooks me. Another book to add to my wish list. Especially, since books seem to be a theme in this story.

    On my blog this week, I’m featuring Laura Frantz’s “The Frontiersman’s Daughter” as my FLF. I’m also reading Mary Connealy’s “Out of Control.” This FLF is:

    Colorado Territory
    June 23, 1866

    “Last time. This is it. Never again.”

    Have a good weekend and happy reading.

  7. I’m featuring lines from Lacey Black’s upcoming release Love and Pancakes on my bog today.

    “I’m sorry, miss, but you won’t be able to get in there for a few days. Not until after the fire marshal has completed his investigation and ruled out arson,” the fire chief states, a look of pity mixed with soot smeared on his aged face.

    Happy Reading!

  8. Happy Friday!

    Today, on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Chasing Someday by Crystal Walton. I’m currently on chapter 24, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Chase sat back in one of the wicker chairs Mom insisted he own, cradled his guitar in his lap, and watched the fireflies hail the end of a long day.”

    It’s such a good book. I’m loving it. 😀

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

  9. That guy on the cover looks like a young Brad Pitt!

    I’m featuring a non-fiction book on my blog this week–A Light So Lovely (about Madeleine L’Engle)–but I’m also about to dive into Stratagem by Robin Caroll, so here’s the first line:

    “According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can’t open the door unless her employee uses the key he got in the last room.”

    Have a great weekend!
