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

Today I’m excited to be featuring Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green. Resplendent in historical details this fully immersible story swept me off my feet, it captured my heart and didn’t let go. The details were so smoothly written and each one melded seamlessly to the next which only added more depth and emotion to the story. CLICK HERE to read my full review.


Lachine, Island of Montreal, Quebec
Late August 1759

Catherine Duval was used to waiting.


Hmmm… I wonder what Cathering is waiting for?  You won’t want to miss out on this latest book from Jocelyn Gree!

  1. I’m looking forward to reading this book in a week or so. Here’s the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher — The spiderweb cracks made it easy to spot the old Chevy SUV in the parking lot.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. This book….I still haven’t written my review because I just can’t seem to put it into words!

    I’ll share the first line from a book I’m starting this weekend, Courting Mr. Emerson by Melody Carlson.

    “George Emerson didn’t need anybody.”

    Have a lovely weekend!

    My first line is from A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden

  5. I adored this book!

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano. I am loving this book so much. I’m currently just starting chapter 19, so I will share the first line from that chapter here.

    “‘A bookstore?’ Justin didn’t mean for his dismay to show in his voice when he pulled up in front of the address Melody had given him, but it escaped all the same.”

    Hope you have a really excellent weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 🙂💜📚

  6. Stop teasing me with this book, Trisha! LOL! First the review, now the first line. I’m not going to be able to get to it for a little while! I just finished A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Cambden. “Alex Duval’s first hint of trouble was when Eloise failed to appear at their hideaway.”

  7. I love Jocelyn Green’s books! I’m sharing from my current read today, American Omens by Travis Thrasher (Uncorrected Proof). Her is the first line from Chapter 17 “The Same Page”:

    “The moment her father stepped foot in the barn that morning, Cheyenne couldn’t help but let loose with an uproarious laugh.”
    Happy Friday!
