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

Today I am happy to be featuring The Red Ribbon (True Colors: Historical stories of American crime). Take a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains and explore the romance and mystery of one of the biggest tragedies to strike Virginia in 1912, when an old feud explodes in Carroll County. A kiss started it all! Be sure to pick-up a copy today to enjoy!

December 1911
The coming dusk cast gray shadows across the box-shaped buildings of Main Street, Hillsville, as Ava Burcham kept a vigilant watch toward Bever Dam Road.

Now it’s your turn!

  1. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I’m currently reading The Light at Wyndcliff by Sarah E. Ladd. I’m liking it so far.
    “Outside the study window, a gentle rain tapped on the panes.”
    Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. The Red Ribbon was such a great book!

    My current book is A Haven For Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason:
    Toronto, Ontario, Canada. November 1939
    Olivia Rosetti turned up the volume on the radio in the empty parlor.
