Today I am excited to be featuring Veiled in Smoke (The Windy City Saga #1) by Jocelyn Green. This fantastic historical romance whisked me back in time. I felt like I was right there in Chicago! Be sure to snag a copy of this new book!

  1. What a beautiful book cover! On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Winter’s Awakening by Shelley Shepard Gray. Here, I will share the first line in chapter thirteen of my current read, Give Me Thine Heart, by Andrea Boeshaar. “Three days and three nights.” Have a great weekend!

  2. That’s a great first line and I keep hearing how great this story is. It’s definitely on my TBR.

    I am currently reading The Duke’s Refuge by Lorri Dudley. Here’s the first line:
    Nevis, British Leeward Islands
    …Why did you not mention your illness sooner?

  3. Thank you so much for featuring Veiled in Smoke, Trisha! I love reading all the comments, too. The first line in a book carries so much significance and is like stepping right the a door into a story already in action. Very fun.

  4. I loved this book so much!

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Waltz in the Wilderness by Kathleen Denly: I am just getting into the novel, so I will share the first line from chapter 2 here.
    “Daniel thanked the postman and stepped away from the window. Tapping the single envelope against his palm, he strode past the long line of men who, like him, had been waiting hours for news from home.”
    Hope you have an excellent weekend!

  5. My first line comes from On Wings of Devotion by Rosanna White
    Charing Cross Hospital, London, England 1 February, 1918
    A stranger stalking down the street shouldn’t make her hands tremble in anticipation.

    Roseanna White at her best!

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear on my blog today. This is the first line from Chapter 3:

    “Standing at the top of the porch steps, Pearl clenched her hands inside her wadded-up apron and glared at her cousin, who faced her from beside the wagon holding more wounded soldiers.”
