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

Today I am excited to be featuring The White City (True Colors) by Grace Hitchcock. My imagination was ignited right from chapter one. Drawn in with the colorful word imagery and witty dialogue and held captive by the vivacious characters. This is one book that you will want to read! CLICK HERE to read my full review!

TheWhiteCity (TrueColors)

Chicago, July 1893

          Winnifred Wylde concentrated on his forehead, nodding, trying to respond appropriately, but it was so difficult with his nose hair escaping and retreating into his left nostril with every breath.


Yuck! The first line makes my stomach turn! Ladies, this is not the kind of suitor you’d want your spinster aunt trying to set you up with now, is it?

Is the active nose hair his only flaw? Will Winnifred find an escape? Or will she be forced to endure further outings with this latest suitor?

  1. I can’t wait to read this book! My first line comes from my current read — Miriam by Mesu Andrews. “I am Miriam, old but of use.”

    Have a great weekend!


  2. About to start a Galley edition of Amanda Cabot’s “A Tender Hope”, which comes out on the 5th.

    The first line reads: “She was free.”

    Gotta love that!! Can’t wait to get into this one; the rest of the Cimarron Creek Trilogy has been fantastic.


  3. I’m glad you liked it! Sadly I as underwhelmed from what I expected but I thought it was okay.
    On my blog this week I shared the first line from Uninvited by Beckie Lindsay but I’m currently reading Vivir el Dream by Allison K Garcia (Yes, it’s written in *mostly* English but anything in Spanish shares the translation). I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Linda grumbled as she changed from her pajamas into jeans and a t-shirt.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
