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

Today I’m excited to be featuring So Bright A Hope (Daughters of His Kingdom #5) by Amber Lynn Perry. With moments of laughter, unexpected twists, and dynamic characters that take a hold of your heart. This story is an important reminder that Liberty is more than a gift, it is a hard-earned privilege that the founders of this country fought for and believed in. You won’t want to miss this story and the journey within the pages that you won’t soon forget! CLICK HERE to read my full review!

  1. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring a Christmas novel by Kit Morgan called, The Christmas Mail Order Bride. Here, I will share the first line from a book I’m currently reading called How To Market Your Book by Joanna Penn. “Ask most authors about book marketing and they will roll their eyes.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall. I’m very excited to get into that book. Because I am just starting this novel, I will post the first two lines from chapter 2.

    “Captain’s orders. You and Mrs. Keate stay here until it’s safe.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fantastic reading time! 😃❤️📚

  3. Happy Friday!👏

    My first lines come from The Patient One by Shelley Shepard Gray…….

    “Thank you for coming. I’m so glad you could make it,” Mrs. Warner said as she clasped Katie Steury’s hand between her own. “Andy . . . well, Andy would have been pleased to see you here.”

    Have a very relaxing weekend and happy reading!😊

  4. Ohhhh!!! So exciting to see James and Caroline’s story on your beautiful blog! You are so talented, Trisha, and I am so grateful to have you as a reader/friend. Thank you for featuring SBAH! I hope readers love the story. I’m currently reading a non-fiction so the opening line isn’t one to fascinate fiction lovers I’m guessing. 😉 LOL! Hugs to you!!

  5. Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I’m currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (there’s no chapter #s) here: “Do her eyes accuse you?” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!


  6. Pretty cover. My first line comes from yesterday’s book mail — Dead Sea Rising by Jerry Jenkins. “‘It’s your mother,’ Nicole Berman’s father said over the phone.”


  7. Since Nicole and I are reading the same book, I’ll go with the real first line of The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall:
    The Atlantic Ocean off the Coast of Virginia August 6, 1814

    What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down…down…beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?


  8. I need to catch up on this series. I think I’ve read the first two, but not the later ones.

    I’m featuring the first line from Carolyn Miller’s latest release, The Making of Mrs Hale, over on my blog today, but at the moment I’m reading Jerusalem’s Queen by Angela Hunt:

    “They are all here, gathered like vultures around my bed, watching with long faces and occasionally bending near to listen for my breathing.”

    Have a great weekend!


  9. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Looking Glass Lies” by Varina Denman:

    “I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again.”
