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

Today I am excited to be featuring The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep. With page-turning action and drama, you won’t want to put this story down! CLICK HERE to read my full review!


Southhampton, England 1815

          Was it wicked to say goodbye with a smile? Wrong to feel happy about leaving one’s family behind? Surely only a sinner’s heart would harbor such uncharitable emotions…wouldn’t it?


Reader friends I’d love to hear from you:

What do you think? It is wrong to feel happy about leaving one’s family?
Have you ever had to say good-bye to family and not know when if ever you’d see them again?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “When He Returns” by author Kimberly Rae Jordan, which I haven’t started, but hope to start reading soon:

    “Dalton Callaghan stared at the gleaming wood casket at the front of the chapel, the profile of his friend just barely visible over the edge as he lay there.”

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first couple of lines from The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. It’s a fabulous story that I highly recommend. Currently, I am just starting Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by the fantastic Bethany Turner so I will share a line from that book.

    “What a difference four years can make.”

    I hope your weekend is a great one. Happy reading! 🤗💙📚

    On my blog today I shared the first line from Living Lies by Natalie Walters. Here I’ll hare the first line from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith which I just received in the mail yesterday 🙂 “The teacher looked at his scroll, light dancing in little ringlets over the words from the flickering candle at his side.” Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading!

  5. I just finished reading this and cannot wait to share my review!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from The Social Tutor by Sally Britton.
    Here, I’ll share the line from the top of the page I’m currently reading:

    In the dark, he had to imagine her expression, though he thought it must be one of eagerness, likely with one of her larger smiles curving her pink lips upward.

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Cowboy Meets His Match by Margaret Brownley on my blog today. Here is the first line from Chapter 12 of my current read, Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan:

    “The second day in Oxford arrived, luminescent, the honey-hues of sunlight falling from the leaves to settle on the grass like spilled paint.”
