  1. Oooh ! I’m reading this collection now!

    My first line comes from Deadly Deceit by Natalie Walters:

    In the face of small-town news, all creativity left Vivian DeMarco.

  2. I saw this one earlier this week. It definitely sounds interesting. On my blog, I’m sharing Riona by Linda Windsor. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter 26 of my current read, A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter. “Kit was anxious as she waited for Jess to return from London, jumping every time the wind blew a bit too loudly around the corner of the house or whenever a child closed a door with a bit too much force.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Because of You” by Becky Wade:

    “Maddie Winslow met the man of her dreams the same day that her friend Olivia introduced Maddie to her new boyfriend. Which would have been splendid, except that the man of Maddie’s dreams was Olivia’s new boyfriend.”

  4. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line from Heart of a Royal by Hannah Currie. It’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 22 here: “The reception had been going on for hours–and no one seemed in any rush to end it.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
