  1. Happy Friday! I haven’t started this yet, but my first line (well – 2 lines) is from “Margin of Error” by Christy Barritt:

    “Hunger and anger battled inside him like two storm fronts colliding. A violent friction clashed in his very soul.”

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/25/first-line-friday-95/. I’m currently reading Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

  3. That’s a beautiful cover! On my blog, I am sharing Mail Order Marvel by Kirsten Osbourne. Here, I will share the first line of the second chapter in my current read, Lord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Ketchersid. “The rusty lock would not budge.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday!
    Today I’m sharing the first line of Searching For You by Jody Hedlund over on my blog. So I’ll share the first line of the chapter I’m currently on here:

    “Och, dinnae tell me I’m too late!”

  5. Loved that book! I currently have an author interview with a giveaway for 2 copies of it on my blog 🙂

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from A Lady’s Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson but it’s also the book I’m about to dig into so no extra line yet. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Yet another book that’s already on my to-read pile …

    I’m sharing the first line of Under a Camperdown Elm by Janet Chester Bly on my website today, but my current read is Love and Other Mistakes by debut Australian author Jessica Kate. Here’s the first line:

    “Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&Ms on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions.”

    Happy reading!

  7. I’m wondering what happened to his employer? I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller.

    It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one’s existence.
