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

Today I’m excited to be featuring The Best of Intentions by Susan Anne Mason. This story grabbed my attention from the beginning. Filled with drama and emotion, these characters leap off the page and into your imagination with ease! CLICK HERE to read my review.


Toronto, Ontario
May 1919

          “Here’s your address, miss. That’ll be two dollars and fifty cents.”
     Grace paid her fair, alighted from the vehicle, then stood on the sidewalk, clutching her valise with trembling fingers.


Grace seems to be nervous. I wonder where exactly in Toronto she has arrived at, and what is she about to do?

To find out, you’ll have to pick up this story!


Now it’s your turn!

  1. Surely that wasn’t…it couldn’t be…
    Adelaide froze, squinting into the crowd. Her heart sputtered, then pounded. Her eyes had to be playing tricks on her. Here? No way could—
    But it was.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Other People’s Children by Ellen Fannon (which I have laughed so hard through the little bit I started reading): Prologue:

    “Why are children so childish?” Robin groused to herself as she sat valiantly attempting to put two coherent thoughts together for her newspaper column that was due tomorrow.

  3. I’ll have to add that one to my TBR list. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring a Regency romance by Sally Britton, “The Gentleman Physician.” I’m still reading it so I will share the first line in Chapter 20 here. “Are you going to resume glaring at Miss Devon when she returns?” Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  4. TGIF! On my blog, I’m featuring The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins. “Carolyn, blood-drenched and barefoot, walked alone down the two-lane stretch of blacktop that the Americans called Highway 78.” It’s a new one I picked up and it sound intriguing! Have a great weekend.


  5. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of the 8th book from the In Death series, Conspiracy in Death. But here, I’ll share with you the first line of one of the books I’m currently reading. This one is from Kit Frick’s “See All the Stars.”


    We went to the party because Ret insisted. I was perfectly happy right where we were: lying on our backs in Jenni’s sprawling front yard, building our best-ever summer playlist, telling time by the dandelion clocks until the sky was a white haze of down. We were idle and airy. We had perfected the summer loaf.

    Hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend! 😀
