  2. Happy Friday!

    Today, my first line Friday is from Christmas at Grey Goose Lodge by Phyllis Clark Nichols…..

    When Maude opened the door to the Christmas closet in early December that year, she had no reason to think there would only be nine more Christmases celebrated at Grey Sage.

  3. Oh, this is one that I’ve wanted to read since it first came out! You put it back on my radar, so to speak! 🙂
    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Joyce Rogers’ Lean Hard on Jesus, but I’ll share the first line from Where We Belong by Lynn Austin (really enjoying it!) here:
    “Rebecca Hawes lay awake in her tent, convinced that the howling wind was about to lift her entire camp into the air and hurl it to the far side of the desert.”
    Have a blessed weekend, Trisha!

  4. I loved this book! I love everything by Laura — she’s amazing!!!

    Happy Friday!

    Today, I am showcasing Vanishing Point by Lisa Harris on my blog for FLF, so here I will post from the book I am currently reading, A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal. Currently, I am on chapter 9, so I’ll post the first line from that:

    “Fumbling with a keychain that grew lighter every day, I closed my apartment door for the very last time on the day before our Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt. A cold, ordinary Thursday to everyone else — extraordinary to me.”

  5. Happy Friday! I need to get back to that book! My first line (a little longer) is from Anne Greene’s Avoiding the Mistletoe:

    Olivia Rose Baker glanced up from the headlines in the Massachusetts Matrimonial Gazette. With an explosive smack, she slapped the newspaper on the top of the breakfast table. “No! I refuse.”

  6. Wonderful story! Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray is featured on my blog today with a giveaway but I’m currently reading The Vexing by Tamara Leigh. Here’s the first line:
    Normandy, France
    Early December 1161
    Women were more trouble than they were worth. Or so Sir Durand Marshal told himself each time one dragged him into a mess like this one promised to do.

  7. Another one on my TBR list I have not gotten to yet!
    I’m getting in the Christmas Spirit with my FLF blog post, but here are the first lines from the book I’m currently reading:

    “Being a teacher was turning out to be a little like having the flu. Simon O’Keefe. Her heart broke for him at the same time her stomach twisted with dread for herself.” From The Calico and Cowboy Romance Collection by Mary Connealy.

  8. I’m sharing the first line from The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from the book I’m currently reading here. “If you’re willing to admit it, you probably know me as Raine de Bourgh.” The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner.
