A lady who enjoy’s her coffee, what’s not to like?! Do you wonder what beverage Neville would choose?  Hmmm…that’s a good question!

  1. Oh, another one I’ve got coming up on my March TBR! I’m not at all a coffee drinker. At all.

    I plan to start The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep this weekend, so I’ll share the first line from that book.
    “Numbers would be the death of Johanna Langley.”

    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! I love this series!!😁 Have you read them all?😀

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading soon, Before We Were Strangers by Brenda Novak!

    As far back as Sloane McBride could remember, she’d been told she was an ice-queen. Even the people closest to her, especially the people closest to her, complained about her reserve.

    Have a great weekend!😁

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today I am showcasing the first line from Michelle Griep’s newest novel, The Innkeeper’s Daughter. I am loving the book. It is a page turner, and the hero is wonderful. I am just starting chapter 18, so I will share the first line from that chapter here:

    “Johanna opened the door to chaos, then stood there, jaw agape.”

  6. I love the cover. I’ll have to check it out. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is an old one: The Knight and the Dove by Lori Wick. Here, I will share Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer, “Peace and quiet. That’s all he sought.” Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I love eccentric characters! My lines for today: “Louisville, Kentucky, 2015

    All Allison wanted was for this conversation to be over. That and she hoped the ehavy gray clouds would part and the sun would appear. It could go either way today – sun or rain. She stood at the kitchen window, peeling old white paint off the sill as she waited for the Kentucky sky to make up its mind.

    Meanwhile, sitting behind her at the table, her lover, Cooper Mc Queen, gently ruined her life.” Happy Friday!

  8. Coffee! Yes! I’m drinking iced coffee right now…

    Here’s the first line from the prologue of my current read: “Wyatt Paxton never realized coming home could be as bittersweet as leaving.” (From The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin)

  9. Coffee. Yes. Can’t function without coffee!

    I’m sharing from Firing Line by Mike Hollow on my blog today. It’s a murder mystery set in London during the Blitz.

    But here’s the first line from the book I’m currently reading, Change of Heart by Courtney Walsh:

    Evelyn Brandt stood in her kitchen, the sound of uptight laughter filtering in from the dining room.

    It’s excellent!

  10. Especially, I would add, when that coffee is combined with chocolate! I’ve only read the first two of this series so far, and I enjoyed them very much.

    I’m sharing from Karen Barnett’s The Road to Paradise on my blog today, so here I’ll share the first line from another book I hope to read soon, The Alliance by Jolina Petersheim:

    “Buffered by grassland, the collision is strangely quiet.”
