  1. London. May 1914. Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. From A Name Unknown by Roseanna White! Loving this book. Can’t get enough Roseanna!

  2. I love the cover of this book! Train Travel! All the covers in this series have been wonderful, but I’m most likely to pick this one up, because I love the idea of the heroine facing the unknown in new places.
    Have a nice weekend, Trish!

    1. Hi Caryl, I’ve read almost all of Tamera’s books and I really enjoy them. This is a stand-alone book, so you won’t feel lost if you read this one first. Having said that… the others are good also! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your first line! Great to hear from you! Have a wonderful weekend.


  5. My library has the audiobook of the first title in this series might have to try it out. I have to post the second line, as the First Line of my book is a quote from Jane Eyre.

    “At Farthering Place, nestled in the Hampshire countryside, the rain also fell fast, drumming against the windowpanes, joining the wind and the thunder to make the cold October night even more forbidding.”

  6. Now that I have a bookshelf within reach of my desk, I’m grabbing one I hope to read this year.
