Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.

Wow! Here we are, the first Friday in December! Christmas songs are playing on my favorite radio station, decorations and lights are just about everywhere you look. Christmas is in the air!

This week I’m featuring The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright. I’ve been reading, and enjoying this page-turning book! I have been telling friends and strangers about this book, and I foresee it showing up under a few Christmas tree’s on Christmas morning! My full review will be coming soon!

The House on Foster Hill

Oakwood, Wisconsin
March 1906

Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.


Now it’s your turn!

  1. The book you are sharing sounds so intriguing!

    I’m sharing the first line from Heather Gray’s An Informal Christmas on my blog today. The first line from the book I’m currently reading is “His footsteps echoing, Ryan Savage walked the first grader from the cafeteria toward the media center.” The Christmas Baby by Lisa Carter.

  2. My first line Friday is from Christmas Magic by Cathy Kelly

    Primrose Cottage sat at the very end of Johnson’s Lane, an enchantingly pretty little house with wisteria snaking into the low roof and rose bushes clustering up to peer in the windows.

    Happy Friday!

  3. The House on Foster Hill was a fantastic book!

    Today I’m featuring Cowboy Christmas Guardian by Dana Mentink (because it’s December and all).

    The first line of the book I’m reading is: “Not Now. For the love of candy canes, not now.” From I’ll Be Home for Christmas Collection by Bonnie Calhoune, Jill Kemerer, Allie Pleiter, and Lenora Worth

  4. I’ve been seeing this book all over social media! I need to read this! Looks great.

    I’m sharing about The Austen Escape on my blog today, but the closest book to me is Christmas at Carton by Tamera Alexander, so I’ll use that here.

  6. Jaime’s book is on my must-read list & I’m anxious to get to it.

    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from First Street Church Romances: Love’s Christmas Cheer by Alexa Verde:

    “Hurting her co-chef wasn’t an option.”


  7. Happy Friday, Trisha!

    I can’t wait to read this book. I have two books I have to review by 12/9, but then my schedule frees up a tiny bit. This book is on my immediate TBR pile!

    Today, over on my blog, I am showcasing Cara Putman’s novel, Imperfect Justice. I am so excited to review this book. I have heard so many good things. On my site, I used the first lines from the prologue, so here I will share the first sentence from chapter 1.

    “Emelie Wesley glanced at her watch and frowned.”

  8. That’s certainly an interesting first line. 🙂 I’m featuring Sophie’s Heart by Lori Wick on my blog this week. It’s one of her best novels. I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you are enjoying this beautiful Christmas season.

  10. I started reading this late one night … then it got scary and I had to put it down (or be up until 4am finishing it!). I need to read it one bright sunny afternoon 🙂

    I’m sharing from The Last Summer by Brandy Bruce on my blog today. Great book!

    I’m currently reading Out of the Ordinary by the always-witty Jen Turano. Here’s the (long) opening line:

    Slipping through the crowd gathered on the upper deck of a most extravagant yacht, Miss Gertrude Cadwalader drew in a breath and adopted an air of what she hoped would be taken for nonchalance.

    With a start like that, I’m expecting another winner!
