  1. I do like numbers.
    I’m currently reading The Amish Nanny’s Sweetheart by Jan Drexler. The first line is “You’re sure you want to do this?” I hope you have a great weekend!


  2. Loved this book. I agree with Johanna about the numbers, LOL!

    I’m currently reading “My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California: Abby’s Prospects” by Janice Thompson. The first line is: “Never underestimate the power of coffee, Neville.”

  5. Happy Friday! I can’t wait to get to this book Trisha!!

    My FLF comes from a book I will be starting later this weekend, Love’s Journey in SugarCreek by Sienna Miller.

    The leather on Rachel Troyer’s gun holster creaked as she shifted her weight on the kitchen chair. Her three elderly Amish aunts shot wary glances toward the offending weapon.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!😁📚

  6. I like numbers… sometimes, numbers don’t like me. Haha! 🙂 Just kidding.
    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line of a wonderful new book about the Maccabees, Judah’s Wife, but here I’ll share the first line of the nonfiction book I’m reading now, Our Unmet Needs by Charles Stanley: “Do you have a nagging, gnawing feeling that something isn’t quite right in your life? Do you feel overwhelmed by a need you can’t meet, a problem you can’t solve, or a question you can’t answer? Are you able to identify the real need that underlies your feelings of uneasiness, fear, worry, or restlessness?”


  7. Happy Friday! I always love seeing what everyone is reading when I get to stop by! My first line is from A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green:

    “Propping open the door to her shop, Vivienne Rivard listened to a distant rumble that vibrated the windows and shivered in her chest.”

  8. I read one book by this author and enjoyed it very much. Haven’t read this one yet. On my blog, I’m featuring The Healer by Beverly Joy Roberts. It’s an amazing fiction that moved me deeply. I hope you will take the time to check it out. Here, I will share the first line from a book by C.H. Spurgeon that I’m currently reading. “‘Thou has visited me in the night.’ –Psalm 18:3. ‘Tis a theme for wonder that the glorious God should visit sinful man.” Wishing you a blessed weekend.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog today, I am sharing the first line from Kristi Ann Hunter’s new novella, A Search for Refuge. I’m just on chapter two, so I will share the first line from that chapter here:

    “Nash slid the tin of peppermints into his coat pocket and reached beneath the counter to pull out Mrs. Lancaster’s log book.”

  10. I’ve seen this book around a lot. I am featuring Olivia Twist on my blog so here I’ll share the first line from The Man He Never Was by James Rubart. Toren Daniels rolled over in bed and light pierced his closed eyelids, which meant five a.m. had come and gone.

  11. My first line is from A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason:
    Derbyshire, England
    March, 1884
    Nolan Price scanned the fields of newly budding greenery that stretched as far as he could see and slowly inhaled the scent of grass, soil, and freshly spread manure.

    I just fininshed The Innkeeper’s Daughter and loved it. A worthy read!

  12. I am sharing the first line from this book on my blog as well. I’m excited the be sharing my review of it soon.

    Here, I will share one of my favorite lines from that book:
    “It might’ve been a cozy inn at some point, but now the walls leaned in toward the soot-blackened ceiling, giving the impression the entire building wanted to lie down and rest.”

  13. I am so excited to read this book! My current first line is from Robin E. Mason’s The Silent Song of Winter: “The sounds of the swamp in winter would scare another person but not me. I grew up here.”

  15. Numbers don’t bother me as long as I don’t dream about them (spreadsheet dreams are not good).

    I’m featuring The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel on my blog today (brilliant novel!), and I’m currently reading Grace Restored by Toni Shiloh. Here’s the first line of Chapter One:

    Victory was hers. The judge had sentenced Brett Donn to twenty years in prison for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
