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

Today I’m happy to be featuring Magnolia Summer (Southern seasons #1) by Melanie Dickerson. If you enjoy reading southern historical novels, with lots of heart, a splash of adventure, and characters that will linger long after you’ve closed the book, you won’t want to miss out on this delightful story. CLICK HERE to read my review.

June, 1880
Bethel Sprints, Alabama

          Truett Beverly aimed his rifle at the noose above James’s head. He would only get one shot to sever the rope, but that wasn’t what bothered him.

  1. My first line is from chapter 6 of The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear:

    Morning dawned with a bit more edge to the wind and the clouds more thick and grey, spitting definite rain.

  2. Happy Friday!

    My First Lines come from Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne…..

    “This is totally lame. Why do we have to stay here and wait for you? We can walk home in, like, ten minutes.” Daniela Capelli drew in a deep breath and prayed for patience, something she seemed to be doing with increasing frequency these days when it came to her thirteen-year-old daughter. “It’s starting to snow and already almost dark.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕📚

  3. Now I wish to know what did bother him? Lol! I know, I know…I have to buy the book. Haha! Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is “Out of the Storm” by Jody Hedlund. Since I’m still reading it, I will share the first line of the fourth chapter here. “Isabelle,” called Henry from the bedroom. “I need you!” May your weekend be all you’re hoping it will be.

  4. Great first line!

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Tracy Groot’s novel The Stones of my Accusers. Currently, I am reading Finding Us by Heather Moore. So far, it’s a fun book. One of those books that has me smiling with each page! I am starting chapter 7, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Opening the bookshop on Saturday morning wasn’t as bad as Felicity thought it might be.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with quality reading time!

  5. Now that’s a first line! Happy Friday! After preparing my blog post sharing first line from Shelley Shepard Gray’s Her Fear, I ended up reading the entire book. So here I’ll share the first lines for a novella I plan to read soon, Come Fly with Me by Gina Welborn and Becca Whitham:

    Please, let him not be here. As Luanne Palmer climbed the stairs to the second floor, she muttered “please” after “please.”

  6. I think the cover for this is so pretty. My FLF today is An Unpresentable Glory by Eleanor K. Gustafson. “On her return from church Kileenda Jensen discovered a problem, and it had nothing to do with her name”

  7. That first line is NOT what I expected after seeing the cover!

    I’m sharing the first line from All Made Up by Kara Isaac on my blog this week. It’s currently available for pre-order, and it’s another winner in my totally biased opinion 🙂

    I’m currently reading Delayed Justice by Cara Putman. Here’s the first line:

    “It’s time to go, sweetie.”

    Have a great weekend!

  8. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Playing for More by Case Keenum to celebrate NFL season. (I feel the need to share that I’m a Colts fan). I am also currently reading Indivisible by Travis Thrasher so I will share the first line of that here: “She carries the memories and always will.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂
