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

Today I am excited to be featuring A Beautiful Love by Megan Walker. This sweet regency romance is the debut book for Megan Walker and quite the delightful story. A fun twist on The Ugly Duckling. CLICK HERE to see my review.

A Beautiful Love

     “Welcome back to Mayberry Park, Mr. Blake.”

   A footman held the coach door open in anticipation. Though Preston’s mind told him to move, some invisible force glued him to his seat. He was not ready to be back at the Avery’s estate. A year was too soon after all that had plagued him.


Okay, so you caught me. I couldn’t just stop at the first line! I just had to include a little extra to give you a little taste. Why does Preston not want to be at the Avery estate? What has happened in the last year? Hmmm…. guess you’ll have to pick-up a copy and find out!

  3. Happy Friday! I didn’t stop at the first sentence either. 🙂 I’m sharing from The Outlaw’s Daughter by Margaret Brownley today. Here is the first line of chapter 16:

    “The house was small and sparsely furnished but had a warm, homey feeling that filled Matt with an unfamiliar longing.”

    Have a great weekend!


  4. My first line is from Woman of Sunlight by Mary Connealy.
    November 1873 Hope Mountain, Near Bucksnort, near Grizzly Peak, Colorado

    “You look awful.” Mitch Warden poured himself a cup of coffee and studied Ilsa Nordegren’s face as she stepped into the kitchen.
