First Line Friday - October 13, 2017

Happy Friday! I am at the end of an unusually rough work week and am happier than usual that it's Friday. My brother-in-law and his wife are visiting for the weekend which I am very excited about!

And it's First Line Friday! YAY!  It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.


My first line today is from Finding Forever in Romance by Melanie D. Snitker. I loved this novella and am excited to read the rest of the collection!


"A blurry mass of fur raced past Brent toward the main building of the Finding Forever Animal Rescue."

I have to love any book that starts off with a "blurry mass of fur"!! You can read my review here.

 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. Ooh. I didn't know about this one. I'll have to check it out. :-)

    I’m featuring the SECOND line from Crystal Walton’s ‘Just Maybe’ on my blog this week (Carrie has the first line on Reading is my Superpower). But here, I’m going to share the first line from my current read: a speculative novel called ‘Day Moon’ by Brett Armstrong. Here’s the first line:

    “The drizzle tapped on the coffin with an increasing intensity.”

    2. Really happy to read this. Melanie is my wife (I'm a blessed man) and she and Crystal Walton are good friends. Nice to see the combination in a comment on a blog :)

    If you’re the last person to leave Detroit, don’t forget to turn off the lights.

    Have a great weekend!!

  4. This first line put a smile on my face! Sounds like a fun book to read. I'll have to find it :)

    The first line on my blog this week is from Toni Shiloh's latest book 'Returning Home'. I'll share with you here a book that I just started reading last night.

  6. Happy Friday! I want to share the first line from the first chapter instead of from the prologue: (This is a REALLY fun book to read!)

    A New Shade of Summer by Nicole Deese:

    "I jiggled the locked doorknob again and wished, not for the first time, that it was legal to use tranquilizer darts on adolescent boys."

  8. Awww..sounds like a sweet story. The book I'm featuring on my blog is Perfectly Matched by Maggie Brendan. However, the book I will share here is Fire and Ice by Mary Connealy. "The bullet spit dirt up in Gage Coulter's eyes, and he didn't even flinch."
