  1. I shared the first line of Jo Piazza’s upcoming novel “Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win” on my blog. I’m still currently reading it so, I’ll share the first line of chapter 19 instead.

    “Ted Slaughter made a grand entrance onto the debate stage. When Chalotte went to shake his hand, he dropped to the floor to begin the first of thirty-seven push-ups.”

    Happy reading! Hope you have a restful weekend! 💗

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Woman of Clay by Linda Caddick. I’m currently on chapter 11, so I will share the first line from this chapter.

    “Spring burst almost overnight in a full palette of brilliant colour, transforming the world into one which barely resembled the one Shana had inhabited just a week or two before.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with great reading time! 😁❤📚

  4. Happy Friday!😎 Oh I love the cover!

    My First Lines come from If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren…….

    “Watching you die is the last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning.” Sierra said it in a low mutter, nearly under her breath, but Ian heard it anyway, a slash across his chest, right between the ribs.

    Have a great weekend, stay cool, and Happy Reading!😊💖📚

  5. Sounds really nice! On my blog, I’m featuring The Purchased Bride by Kit Morgan. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Four of that novel. “Herman Mayer wasn’t the brightest or the nicest man around, and he knew it.” Wishing you a great Friday!

    From The Cumberland Bride, Daughters of the Mayflower series by by Shannon McNear

    “My father used to tell the story,” Kate murmured as she wrote, quill scratching against the page, “of how he and his fellow Hessians sailed down the Hudson with the British, preparing to attack Washington and his forces.”

    “Stay close.”

    I am reading and loving The Road to Magnolia Glen, too. I enjoy Pam Hillman’s writing style very much. This is only the second book of her’s I have read, but will be reading more. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and good luck everyone.

  8. Happy Friday 🙂

    I’m dying to read The Road to Magnolia Glen, but I still have to read The Promise of Breeze Hill. I tentatively plan to read these two books next month. The opening line hooks me as a reader and I want to read more to see what kind of trouble Kiera and Meghan get into.

    This week’s FLF is Jen Turano’s A Match of Wits. I’m also reading Roseanna M. White’s Circle of Spies from the Culper Ring Series:

    “Marietta Hughes was the worst widow in the history of mourning.”

    Hope you have a nice weekend 🙂

    Authentic living. What does it even mean?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

    But Then There Was You by Kara Issac has just won the 2018 RITA Award for Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements from Romance Writers of America, so I’m going to share the first line to celebrate Kara’s win:

    Paige McAlister didn’t think think it was possible, but there was something worse than being single and thirty at your nineteen-year-old sister’s wedding.
