It’s Friday!  Today I’m sending you warm greetings from the beautiful Charleston, SC.  I’ve been here for the past 5 days, soaking up the sun, visiting historical sites, and enjoying time with family. This week I enjoyed visiting many historical sites. I would recommend a visit to Charleston, SC for anyone who loves history.

Today, I am featuring: In His Eyes by: Stephenia H. McGee

  1. Here’s my first line:
    Garvin Poole slipped out of bed, got his lighter off the fireplace mantel, and walked in his underwear through the dark house to the kitchen, where he took a joint out of a sugar jar, then continued to the garden door. ~Golden Prey by John Sandford

  2. I’m looking forward to reading this one soon!

    I have the first line from Erynn Newman’s debut release ‘Out of Darkness’ on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from Johnnie Alexander’s latest release, ‘What Hope Remembers’:

    “The June sun beat on Gabe Kendall’s bare head and tapped into his childhood memories of the horse farm.”

    Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday! I have In His Eyes on my kindle and need to read it.
    My first line is: “My heart beat as if it was trying to build up speed and erupt from my chest.” From Warfare:Life After Book 2 by Julie Hall. Coming out June 13th.

  4. My first line is from TURTLES IN THE ROAD, a humorous romance from mother/daughter duo Rhonda Rhea and Kaley Rhea. The book arrived yesterday, and I didn’t get to crack it open until 1:00 AM…but I just HAD to start it before bed! The first chapter is hilarious…and Piper is my new BF! — “Normally a nice long solo drive had a calming effect on Piper.”

  5. It’s a Regency weekend for me. Today I’ve started reading Carrie Turansky’s Edwardian Brides series.

    So here’s mine:
    Jody Hedlund’s For Love & Honor: “You have one month to pay the debt,” Captain Foxe stated, his tone as rigid as the plate armor he wore.

  7. This is the book I have just started to read; Mrs. Odboddy: Undercover Courier. By Elaine Faber ” Lighting flashed and thunder rattled the windows of Wilkey’s Market where Agnes pushed a little metal cart through the crowded aisle.”
    But I do have another great mystery up today on the blog!
