Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

  1. Happy Friday!
    I’m sharing the first line from Susan Sleeman’s Cold Terror today on the blog, but I’m currently reading Welcome to Wishing Bridget by Ruth Logan Herne, so I’ll leave that first line here:

    Don’t do it.

  2. I only have this book with me. My first line (well, really first two lines because they are so good) is from Runaway Romance by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Ann Stanway sat in her television producer’s office trying to still the butterflies doing battle in her belly. No, not butterflies, more like buzzards.”

  3. My first line is from a book I’m going to be reading soon Hope Travels Through by Loni Kemper Moore…..

    The first time Dad picked me up at the Evansville airport in his 1976 Corvette, I should have recruited a fairy godmother. Not that I believed in such things.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. This is a restyled cover, isn’t it?! It’s so pretty!

    My first line from the book I’m reading now: “How can I help?” – The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay.

  5. It is a very nice cover.

    One of my first lines today is from The Art and Craft of Murder by Cat Parker.
    “One of these days, someone’s going to murder that stupid old woman,” Martha Johnstone said to me, as Hilary Short left my teahouse and walked off towards the harbor.

    Over on my blog, I’m featuring a Veterans’ theme from Abigail Strom’s Waiting for You.

  7. I haven’t read anything by Sarah Monzon yet, but I keep reading such great reviews of her books. I’m sharing the first line from A Love Like Ours by Becky Wade on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from a book near the top of my TBR pile here. “Blizzard-like conditions are expected to last through the evening.” That line is from The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips.

  8. The last book I picked up was An Improper Proposal. It’s an odd title for a Christian romance, but the first lines caught my attention:

    The shooter did not flinch.
    Neither did Henry Reiker. He merely slammed to the bank lobby floor with a hole in his chest.

    That’s definitely starting a story off with a bang.

  9. I just bought this book. Excited to read it.

    Happy Friday!

    I’m showcasing The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner on my blog this week. So, here I will share a line from the book I’m currently reading, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan. I’m just starting chpt. 15, so that’s the line I’ll share:

    “On Monday morning, Kate heard her email ping and saw the message was from the Northern District of Georgia. Her heartbeat sped up as she clicked to open it.”

  10. I love the new cover style that Sarah went with!
    My current read is An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter
    Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797
    “The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.”
