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

Today I am excited to be featuring Serving Up Love (A Harvey House Brides Collection) by Tracie Peterson, Karen Witemeyer, Regina Jennings and Jen Turano. This fun collection of stories are sure to not only entertain you, but to bring a smile to your face and a flutter to your heart! CLICK HERE to see my full review.


A Flood of Love by Tracie Peterson
August 1929
Gretchen Gottsacker stepped from the train and looked around at the tiny town of San Marcial, New Mexico–pronounced Mar-see-all by those of Spanish descent and Mar-shall by the white settlers.


More Than a Pretty Face by Karen Witemeyer
Gainesville, Texas  1902
“I’m not going to marry her, Mother.”
Caleb Durrington bit the inside of his cheek to keep the rest of the words piling up on his tongue from escaping.


Intrigue a la Mode by Regina Jennings
Emporia, Kansas  1898
The breakfast rush had ended, and Willow Kentworth had already reset her station. There was nothing to do now except patrol her table and guard against horseflies dying on the starched tablecloth or lilies wilting in the crystal vase.


Grand Encounters by Jen Turano
El Tovar Hotel, Grand Canyon, Arizona  1908
“I know you mentioned you’ve sworn off gentlemen forever, but Mr. Tall, Dark and–need I say–Delicious is here again, and, unsurprisingly, he’s sitting in your section.”

  1. My first line is from A Match For Emma by Pepper Basham:
    Molly Caudwell needed a perfect match, and Emma Mitchell was the woman to give the newest waitress her very own happily-ever-after.

    Serving up love has got to be one of my favorite novella collections. So much talent there!

  3. Tracie Peterson gave me a copy of this when I was in Montana 🙂 Hoping to read it soon!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line from Echoes Among the Stones by Jaime Jo Wright but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 22 here: “She was in no mood for a midnight stroll.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  4. Happy Saturday! Today, I’m currently reading On My Honour by Elizabeth John’s, so I’ll share from there.

    “Meg looked down at her hands, which were raw from lye soap. How did people do this every day?”

    Hope you’re having a good weekend filled with awesome reading time and rest. 😊❤📖
