First Line Friday’s – My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah

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

I’m excited to share with you today a book I’m just starting, and I can say that I’m already pulled in and captivated. My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah by Angie Dicken is schedule to hit the shelves on November 1st. You won’t want to miss this delightful story!

Journey now to Castle Gate, Utah of 1910 where…
Forbidden Love Tries to Survive Old World Expectations

MyHeartBelongsIn CastleGate,UT

Schoolteacher Leanna McKee plans on leaving the coal mining town of Castle Gate, Utah, and never looking back. Good riddance to coal dust, rugged men, and the fatal mine that took her husband’s life.

Until the widow meets a widower who awakens her heart…and she finds herself inexplicably falling for miner Alex Pappas which stirs up a whole heap of trouble.

Alex’s Greek parents have arranged a more traditional match for him.  When the schoolteacher’s association with the Greek family begins to anger the American miners, they threaten Alex and his family. Leanna has received an offer to teach elsewhere and feels she has no choice but to leave Castle Gate. . .though she will be leaving her heart behind.

Castle Gate, Utah 1910

Leanna McKee pushed her hat by its brim, hiding her face as best she could. She would not let him see her.

 

Who is Leanna trying to avoid?
I have to admit, after that line I had to read the first chapter, which lead to the next chapter, and… well you get the idea. Watch for my review to come soon!

First Line Fridays – Returning Home (Freedom Lake #1)

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

This week I’m featuring the first line and a bonus favorite line from the latest novel by Toni Shiloh, Returning Home (Freedom Lake #1).  I recently finished reading this wonderful story, and highly recommend it! Watch for my interview with Toni Shiloh and my review next week!

ReturningHome

Jo Ellen Baker is shocked to find out that the boy who teased her mercilessly throughout high school, has returned to their hometown of Freedom Lake, and he’s missing a leg. When his mother asks her to renovate their carriage house to give him a place to gain his independence back, she wants to say no. But one look at him brings a rush of forgotten feelings.

Evan Carter can’t believe he has to return home and live with his parents. Every hope and dream he ever had dissipated in a car crash that cost him his leg. Stuck in a wheelchair, he’s forced to reexamine his relationship with God and the local carpenter, Jo Ellen Baker.

Will renovating his home open the door for a mended relationship, or are some wounds too deep to heal from?

 

 

The First Line is:

Jo Ellen Baker slammed the tailgate of her pickup shut.

First Line Friday’s – Lady Jayne Disappears

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

Here we are, at the first Friday of October. Wow! Time sure flies when you are having fun. I trust that you have had an enjoyable week. I look forward to hearing from you and finding out what book you have been reading.

I have been reading Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson-Politano. The story takes place during the Victorian age, and let me just tell you how amazing this debut book really is! The heroine is an author with a non de plume, and she’s trying to solve a mystery, one that will keep you guessing. You’ll want to read my review to learn more, but trust me, this story fantastic! (my review)

LadyJayne

London, England 1861

It must have been the rain that felt so wrong that day, nothing more. It spit at my face and drenched me.

Wonderful way to set the opening scene, don’t you think? Just for an added teaser, I’ll share with you a meme I created.

First Line Fridays (9/29/17) Her Cherokee Groom

Is it just me, or are you a little surprised that we are here at the last Friday of September? This month has just flown by! Next month First Line Friday’s will be hosted by Hoarding Books!

Today, I’m featuring Her Cherokee Groom by Valerie Hansen. I enjoy reading stories about Native Americans, and Cherokee especially.  Click here to read my review.

HerCherokeeGroom

On the run from false murder charges, Annabelle Lang can only count on one man, Cherokee diplomat Charles McDonald. The handsome ambassador has already helped her escape Washington City. Now he’s proposing marriage to protect her honor. Though she’s losing her heart to Charles, Annabelle’s certain his offer comes from duty, not love.

Charles’s feelings for the flaxen-haired beauty go beyond mere companionship, but he’s doubtful a lady like Annabelle would ever consider him under normal circumstances. And with his family expecting him to wed a Cherokee bride, he wouldn’t have asked. If it’s more than convenience that binds Charles and Annabelle, there’s only one way to find out—he’ll have to court his own wife!

 

Washington, DC – 1830

“What are you doing out here? Spying?”

 

How about that first line? Doesn’t it make you want to pick up the book to find out who is spying and what they spying on?

 

Now it’s your turn!

Welcome to another edition of “First Line Friday”. I do so enjoy sharing with you and hearing what books you are reading. Make sure that you stop at my friends blogs also to see what books they are featuring.

This week I’m featuring the recently released ‘An Inconvenient Beauty’ by Kristi Ann Hunter. I’m sure you are no stranger to her fabulous regency novels. However, if you haven’t read her books yet, you may wish to read my review (click here).

 

InconvenientBeauty

Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797

The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.
