I don’t know about you, but for me Friday’s are busy! The good news is that all that by the end of the day on Friday we can hopefully relax and put up our feet for a bit. It kind of makes the weekend all that more enjoyable.

This Friday I’m happy to be featuring a new-to-me (this year) author, Caryl McAdoo. Earlier this month I had the privilege to read ‘Vow Unbroken’. Please make sure to enter the giveaway (click here)!


This book will take you on a journey that you heart won’t soon forget. Filled with sigh-worthy tender moments as well as heart pumping action that will keep you turning pages long into the night. (see full review here)

Ok, so this isn’t the first line, I just had to share another favorite line from this wonderful book. Make sure to see the first line below!

Be sure to check out the author interview with Caryl McAdoo and enter the giveaway!




He took the pinch of cotton Sue offered and rubbed it between his short, pudgy fingers. “I’m truly sorry, Mis’ess Baylor. Two cents is all I can pay.”

Now it’s your turn!

  1. This is one of those series I keep telling myself I should read, and I still haven’t got around to it yet…

    I’ve got the first line from “Will Not See” by Chautona Havig over on my blog today. Since it’s the second book in the ‘Sight Unseen’ series, I thought I would share the first line (or two) from the first book in the series, “None So Blind”, here:

    “Her arm stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably.”

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I’ve got several books in this series in my TBR. Hope to begin reading them soon.

    Huge hands ripped at Cole Sanders’ shirt and yanked him away from Audrey Vaughn’s embrace. Tackling the Fields by Janet Ferguson

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Looks like another great book to add to my bottomless TBR! 🙂

    I’m featuring “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White on the blog today, but the closest book I have to me right now is “The Writing Desk” by Rachel Hauck.

    “This should by night of triumph. To be queen of her world. An acclaimed, best-selling, award-winning author with the literati bowing at her feet.”

    Happy Weekend!

  4. Great book!
    Happy Friday! My first line is from Destitutio by Brett Armstrong, which I am excited to start reading:
    “The grisly, grey swirls churned up before Marcus, a thin mask to the merciless heat.”


  5. I know I have several of her books on my Kindle, but haven’t read her yet.

    This weekend I’m reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s “Bringing Maggie Home.” I’m a little over halfway and it’s such a GREAT read! Here’s the first line:
    Mid-July 1943
    “Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. ‘Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'”

  6. I won Unbroken Vow and the next in the series.
    My first line this week is :Conner O’Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathered on the landing.
    From The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman

  7. I’m currently in the middle of reading Rule of Law by Randy Singer. It’s not typically a genre (military/legal) I read, but it’s so engaging. Here’s the first line:

    “They descended like vultures from the C-17 transport plane, silhouettes against a quarter moon in a tar-black sky.”
