  1. I must get to this book soon!

    I have the first line of Tosca Lee’s ‘Firstborn’ on my blog today, but here I’m going to share the first line of “Wings of the Wind” by Connilyn Cossette:

    “Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, I’d never felt more alone.”

  2. My first line comes from an advance read of a book that will have a permanent home on my “favorite books” shelf. THE ASTONISHING THING by Sandi Ward releases in November. It’s so clever and touching…told from the point of view of a cat, Boo, who is trying to solve the disappearance of her human mom and help her family heal. So, so sweet! “Let me tell you about my mother.” (Mainstream with references to faith, 99% clean)

  3. I have Sondra’s other 2 books, and when I finish reading them I will buy this one because it sounds so good!
    My first line is from True to You by Becky Wade:
    “Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn’t all fun and games.”

  7. Love that cover!

    Last night was my brother’s college graduation, so while I was waiting for the 200+ students before him to get their diplomas, I read “Love at First Bark” (Dana Mentink). It was short and amusing. 🙂 The first line…er…paragraph… was great…

    “Marcy Deveraux was surprised to discover she didn’t actually miss the prince very much. The naked truth was, he’d been high maintenance with all that dark broodiness and not much of a sense of humor to speak of. By the end of their time together, he’d even gotten on her nerves just the tiniest bit. Still, Prince Rafe’s departure left her at a loss. It was not as though His Royal Highness was required to save anyone else from assassination, and it had been twelves months since that perilous jungle crossing, complete with poisonous spiders and the one-eyed bandit. The prince had survive more adventures than could be expected of anyone, fictional or not, and he deserved his happy ending.
    So now what?
    Marcy chewed her pencil eraser, staring at the blank pages of her notebook as the summer wind rattled the cabin windows.”
