First Line Friday - November 17, 2017

It's First Line Friday! Yay! I am always excited to see what books others are sharing! 

My first line today is from The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips. It's about a couple who met and got engaged on a reality TV show, but apparently things quickly went awry. It looks like a great story and I am excited to read it!

First Line Friday - November 10, 2017

Happy Friday! Today is a special edition of First Line Friday. In honor of Veteran's Day, we're choosing books with a military, patriotic, or veteran's theme. I am excited to check out what books everyone has chosen. 

My first line today is from A Love Like Ours by Becky Wade. I chose this book because Jake, one of the main characters, is a former marine.

Review: Magnolia Storms by Janet W. Ferguson

From the Back of the Book

Maggie Marovich couldn’t save her father or her home from Hurricane Katrina, but she’s dedicated her life to meteorology so she can warn others when the monster storms approach. Except…she works three hours inland and rarely risks returning to her childhood hometown of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Both her single-parent sister and the ship pilot Maggie once loved refused to leave the Coast, despite Maggie’s requests. Now a hurricane’s headed toward Mississippi, and Maggie’s sister is seriously injured, leaving Maggie little choice but to head south—into the storm.

First Line Friday - October 27, 2017

Happy First Line Friday! Is it too early to be excited about Christmas books? I borrowed three Christmas books and one Hallmark Christmas DVD from the library last week. That wasn't my intention but that's what I came home with. I have a few other Christmas books inching their way up my to be read list, too. 

My first line today is from one of those library books Christmas at Harrington's by Melody Carlson.

Review: As My Parents Age by Cynthia Ruchti

From the Back of the Book

When our parents age, it can be lonely and heartbreaking for them and us. These forty reflections offer hope and reassurance that you are not alone in the process. Roles change, priorities are challenged, and difficult conversations must be had. But there are also precious memories to be made.
