  2. I loved The Yellow Lantern! It’s not my typical read. I’m sharing the first line from
    “A Lady’s Maid” by Jen Geigle Johnson
    London, England 1831
    Molly O’Malley’s coal-powder disguise hid her creamy skin and blended with her black-clad form in the shadows of the early morning.

  3. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m sharing Lord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Kerchersid, which I absolutely loved. Here I will share the first line from chapter 8 in my current read, A Promised Land by Kimberly Grist. “Meriwether’s mouth watered as she pulled the iron skillet from the woodburning stove.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Brett, Billionaire Bodyguard” by Autumn Macarthur & Alexa Verde:

    “Brett Jarvis grimaced, yawned, and snatched up his ringing cell phone. Two a.m. phone calls rarely meant good news, especially in his business.”

  5. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/01/first-line-friday-96/. I’m currently on chapter two of A Daring Venture by Camden. I’m on a Camden kick! 😀

    “By the time Rosalind arrived at the crowded Manhattan restaurant to meet Mr. Drake, her nerves were wound as tight as a piano wire.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 😀❤📚

  6. That’s a scary start to the book!

    I’m currently reading The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter. I’m on chapter 19 so I’ll share the first line of that chapter. “Sara had just finished waiting on a customer when Brad came into the shop, wide-eyed and with deep furrows lining his forehead.”

    I hope you have a nice weekend!

  8. On my blog today I’m sharing the first few lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m currently reading Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes so I’ll share the first line from chapter 24 here: “Bess’s words travel with Annie down to the landing.” This book is soo good so far! Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Looks like another great book in the series.

    The closest book to hand is The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey — Fire ripped through Finn’s right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
