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

Today I’m excited to be featuring The Reluctant Warrior by Mary Connealy. From the very first page, I was involved in this story and the lives of these characters. I found myself thrown into the action and holding my breath to find out what would happen next. CLICK HERE to read my review.

  1. This is on my TBR 😀 I’m sharing from The End Begins by Sara Davison, book one of The Seven Trilogy:

    Meryn didn’t move until a loud thud and a shout from upstairs yanked her from her stunned silence. “We need to get out now.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. My first line is from Chapter 8 of Murder of Convenience by Linda Henton Matchett:

    “Police. Open up. “ Heavy pounding shook Geneva’s door.

  3. I have just started Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan. The first line is: “From the beginning it was the Great Lion that brought us together.”

    Happy weekend!


  4. That’s an intriguing first line – there is something a little creepy about being woken by silence.

    I’ve just finished reading Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh (one of those books I opened to copy the first line so I could share it, but got hooked. So now I’m sharing the first line after I’ve read the last. And I’m sharing a day late. #SorryNotSorry). Here’s the first line:

    “This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it.”

    On my blog, I’m sharing from an old favourite Australian contemporary Christian romance that’s recently been re-released: Return to Baragula by Mary Hawkins. I hope you get a chance to check it out.


  5. This week on my blog I shared Ours for a Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer but I’m currently reading Chosen People by Robert Whitlow so here I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (26): “Hana had trouble containing her excitement during her morning Skype session with Daud.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!
