First Line Friday - June 29, 2018



Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! Today I'm sharing the first line from Falling for the Cowgirl by Tina Radcliffe. I am a huge fan of Love Inspired books and I really liked this one! You can read more about the book, check out my review, and enter (through July 4, 2018) to WIN the book here.



"'I like Zeb Turner for the assistant ranch foreman position.'"


Now it's your turn! Leave the first line of the book closest to you in the comments below then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today.

  1. Happy Friday, Ellie! :-)

    On my blog, I'm featuring Only the River Runs Free, but I'll share the first line of another book on my TBR list here, Elizabeth Musser's Searching for Eternity: "I am watching the evening news, alone in my house, hungry and tired from the day's work, eating a piece of leftover pizza and wishing it were blanquette de veau. The story comes near the end of the NBC program."

  2. Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Rachel Fordham's debut book "The Hope of Azure Springs." I hope you get the chance to check it out! Here I'll share the first line from Chapter Five.
    "Em stood on the front porch, quietly looking heavenward. The sun had yet to rise."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. “The name is Wainwright,” I said to the conference volunteer seated at the registration table before me. “Brooklyn Wainwright.”

  4. I have my copy waiting for me to read soon. It looks so cute. :D

    I’m sharing about “The Hawaiian Discovery” by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter over on my blog today. Since I’m currently reading a YA Christian fantasy novel called “Choice of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry, I’ll share my first line from there.

    “He walked alone down the sidewalk.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!😊 I just read Tina's new book and loved it!😊

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading shortly, The Hope Jar by Wanda Brunstetter....

    Tears streamed down Sara Murray’s face as she sat on the living-room floor, going through another box of her mother’s things. Mama had passed away two weeks ago after a short three-month battle with colon cancer.

    Have a great weekend, happy reading, and stay cool!😊💖

  7. Happy Friday! My first line is from Hidden Currents by Christy Barritt:

    "At the sound of a footfall behind her, Cady Matthews's back muscles tightened faster than a mousetrap snapping its prey."

  9. That sounds like a fun read!

    I'm sharing from Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano on my blog today. But I'm reading Bookishly Ever After by Sarah Monzon, the final novella in the Timeless Love collection I featured a couple of weeks ago. It's ticking all the boxes for me—contemporary romance, first person point of view, a bookish heroine, and a good friend who might become more ... Anyway, here's the first line:

    The hunter had become the hunted. Poetic? Not really.
