It’s Friday and that means it’s time to share a First Line! It is always fun to hear from you and discover new books, or revisit old favorites.

Today I’m choosing to feature ‘My Heart Belongs in Ruby City, Idaho (Rebecca’s Plight)’ by Susanne Dietze. As you may remember I reviewed this fantastic book a few months ago. For those that may have missed it, you can read my review by clicking here.  If you haven’t yet picked up this book, I would like to encourage you to do so. Rebecca is a mail order bride who ends up married to the wrong groom. It is a fun book to read!


Owyhee County, Idaho Territory
May 1866

The dimming afternoon sky outside the stagecoach window was thick with flat-topped clouds, but the reverberating crack was no clap of thunder.


Now it’s your turn!

  1. Love that “no clap of thunder” finish!

    I’ve share one first line on my blog. But I’m currently reading A Name Unknown by Roseanna M White, and here’s the first line:

    “Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.”

  3. This looks like a great read!

    My book this week is To The Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden.

  4. Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 3 lines) is from His Secret Alaskan Heiress by Belle Calhoune:
    ” ‘Here it is. Fresh out of the oven. One reindeer pizza with feta and spinach,’ Sophie announced in a chirpy voice as she set the order down in the middle of the table.”

  5. Thanks so much for featuring My Heart Belongs in Ruby City! Love the first lines others have mentioned.

    Here’s the first line of what I’m reading (The Nanny Bargain by Glynna Kaye):

    “There, that’s all there is to it,” concluded Sawyer Banks from where he sat behind a weathered oak desk.

  6. I have heard a lot about this book! My Kindle is closest to me right now and the first book on it is Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette, “My Sandals have not crossed this threshold since I was ten.”
