  2. LOVED this book!!

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I’m just getting into Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellow papers closer and pressed her lips to them.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of reading time!

  3. Happy Friday!

    I’m currently reading The Golden Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse. I’m just beginning chapter 3, so I will share the first line from there.

    “Buttercup and Julius plodded along ever so slowly as if the past days’ circumstances were thick mud around their hooves, weighing them down.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 😀❤📚


  4. My first line is from The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse:

  7. I reviewed No Ocean Too Wide last week – it’s an excellent read.

    Today I’m sharing from Entanglements by Rachel McMillan on my blog, one of the novellas in Finding Ever After. Here’s the first line from the next story in the collection, Twice Upon a Time by Ashley Clark:

    “Under no circumstances would she fall for him again.”
