First Line Friday - October 6, 2017

Welcome to First Line Fridays, now hosted by Hoarding Books!!!
More info on that in a minute.

I'm so excited that it's October! We are planning to go to a Pumpkinfest tomorrow. Fall is my favorite season! It's a great time to relax with a blanket, a cup of tea, and a good book.

Since it's Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.

My first line today is from An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter. I loved this book and the entire series!


"While the limits of human ability prevented Griffith, Duke of Riverton, from being everything to everyone who depended on him for their livelihoods, he'd always assumed there was no limit to what he would do for his family."

 Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating! The new Hoarding Books blog is now going to be the home of First Line Fridays.

  1. I cannot wait to read An Inconvenient Beauty soon! Love the first line.

    By the way, what's a Pumpkinfest? Sounds like fun!

    I'm sharing about "Witness Protection" by Carol Kinsey on the blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from the book I'm currently reading here.

    1. A pumpkinfest is a fair/festival with lots of fall (and pumpkin) things including baked goods, crafts, etc. This one even has a used book sale!

      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. This book is on my list of books I plan to read soon. Thanks for sharing it.

    I've joined the FLF fun and featured a book on my blog, but I will feature a different one here: After A Fashion by Jen Turano. I haven't started it yet, but it's next on my list of books to read. "Miss Peabody, I do so hate to interrupt your work, but an urgent message has just arrived that requires immediate attention."

    1. It's nice to "meet" you, Anneliese! After A Fashion is on my shelf just waiting to be read.

      I'm adding the book you wrote to my TBR list. I love Regency and yours looks good!

  5. I want to read this one!

    I’m sharing the first line from Lynn Austin’s new release ‘Where We Belong’ on my blog this week, so I’m going to share the first line of the book I just finished here: The Case of the Clobbered Cad by Debra E. Marvin.

    “Heather Munro gazed down Victoria Street so long, she became another gray-suited statue along the Royal Mile.”

    Have a great weekend!

  6. oh a pumpkinfest sounds fun! It's still a bit warm here for me to feel like doing fallish things, but I'm heading up north this next weekend so I'm excited to visit an orchard then!

    Here's the first line of the book currently closest to me - "Someone had left the front door open." - Portrait of Vengeance by Carrie Stuart Parks

  7. I’m currently reading An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter, and that’s the book I’m doing on my FLF post today too, so here I will post the first line from the novel I’m reading next. The next book on my schedule is Rancher to the Rescue by Barbara Phinney.

    Proud Bend, Colorado, April, 1883

    “Did I read that right?” Clare Walsh peered up from her chair at the Recording Office in Proud Bend, Colorado. She blinked rapidly. “My parents are gone?”

  8. That sounds like a sad first line! It definitely makes me want to read it to see what happens. I hope you are having a good weekend!

  10. Like you, I loved this book and the entire series!

    I'm sharing from Where We Belong by Lynn Austen on my blog, but I'm currently reading Cardiac Event by Dr. Richard Mabry. Here's the first line:

    Dr. Cliff Hamilton watched the bright green lines of the EKG dance across the monitor screen.

    I'm finding Cardiac Event is perhaps more medical murder mystery than thriller, but there is plenty of suspense and I'm enjoying it. I'll post a full review on my website next week.
