Julia Jenkins was a glass-half-full person. Well most of the time. Even with her sordid backstory.


Hmm… Sounds to me like Julia Jenkins is about to experience some major life changes! You won’t want to miss out on this latest story from Pepper Basham!

  1. The cover for Pepper’s book is so cute!

    I’m sharing about “A Lady of a Thousand Treasures” by Sandra Byrd over at my blog, but I’m almost finished reading, “The Bullying Breakthrough” by Jonathan McKee. So my first line will come from there.

    It’s 6:37 a.m., and I haven’t slept for hours.
    This has been an emotional project for me, probably the toughest I’ve ever tackled. Not because the research has been any more burdensome or the topic more daunting, but because never have I heard so much anguish and hurt.

    Happy Friday! Hope you have a wonderful reading filled with lots of good books to enjoy. 😀

  2. Happy Friday! This week on my blog I’m featuring Everything She Didn’t Say by Jane Kirkpatrick but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (13) here: “Doing what I haven’t ever done before has become a kind of purpose for me.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    “Oliver Voight checked his passport for the third time.”

  4. Looks like a good book.

    My first line: “Everyone thought that Anise Salis had killed her husband, Frank. Mornings like this she wished that she had.”

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from An Hour Unspent by Roseanna White. Currently, I’m reading The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear. This book is SO good, I’m absolutely loving it. I’m on chapter 28, so I’ll share a line from there:

    “The women came for her very shortly after, and while leading her off, they shooed Crying Bird away.”

    Hope you have an amazing weekend filled with great reading time! 😀🧡📚

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read, Temptation Rag by Elizabeth Hutchison Bernard. Here is a line from the top of page 9:

    “She thought she would never tire of watching him at the piano, his fingers caressing the keys, a look of such tenderness on his face as if he would gladly die for each and every note.”

  7. Pepper Basham has the best covers 🙂

    I’m featuring Pathway to Peace by Elizabeth Maddrey on my blog, and I’ve just picked up That’s When I Knew by Laurie Tomlinson. Here’s the first line:

    “Bless her heart. Chelsea Scott’s sales director had no idea what she was getting them into.”

    I’m guessing this is that Southern meaning of “bless her heart” which means anything but!
