  1. Oh, wow! That’s an interesting line for a new bride to think. Lol. On my blog, I’m featuring Hillbrooke, God’s Rewrite by Beverely Joy Roberts. This is such a great series and she’s quite the storyteller. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Interestingly enough, I believe the book I’m reading has the exact same first line! And lemme tell ya, there was not a chance of me stopping after the first line! It’s so good!


  4. My first lines are friom The Artful Match by Jennifer Delamere:
    Venezuala, August, 1881

    Julia Bernay Stephenson watched as her father carefully stirred honey into his coffee. For years she had thought he was dead, and now, even though it had been a week since she’d found him alive, she still looked at him with wondering eyes.

    I’m awaiting my copy of The Golden Bride!


  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from Up from the Sea by Amanda Dykes on my blog today. This is the first line from my current read, In the Shadow of Croft Towers by Abigail Wilson:

    “I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had never learned the truth.”
