First Line Friday - October 20, 2017

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week. It's First Line Friday! Yay! I'm excited every Friday to find out what others are reading. I hope you find a book or two to add to your "to be read" list today.

My first line today is from Falling for the Rancher by Roxanne Rustand. I am looking forward to reading this book.


"After working at the Aspen Creek Veterinary Clinic for the past thirteen months, Dr. Darcy Leighton had encountered a lot of interesting situations."

 Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. I'll bet he has!

    I’m featuring the first line from The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey by Carolyn Miller on my blog this week, but right now I’m almost finished a gripping read by Candace Calvert--Disaster Status--so I’m going to give you the first line of that:

    “Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms.”

    Gotta get back to it! Have a great weekend 🙂

    My first line is from Love Unawares, a historical fiction book by Michelynn Christy:

    "Well, Jed. Are you ready to meet your new wife tomorrow?"

  3. Vets are simply wonderful people, we love ours!

    Here's the first line from my next read:
    "Fowltown Village, Georgia
    Big Chestnut Moon (October) 1817
    Captain Marcus Buck dropped to one knee beside an Indian's crumpled form and swept a hand down her face, lowering her lids over sightless eyes."
    Drawn by the Frost Moon: Bitter Eyes No More by April W. Gardner

  4. Haha, love that first line! I'm sure Vets see all kinds of interesting things haha.

    I'm sharing about Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews on the blog today, but here I'm going to share the first line from The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon.

    Prologue
    Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest.

    Chapter 1

    This was not how I'd thought I would die.

    Happy Friday!

    1. That first line sounds a bit scary. (And it sounds like something I would think if I were in a tent on a windy night!) I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Happy Friday!

    I am showcasing Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz this week, so I will post the first line from the book I plan to read after I finish Embracing Hope.

    "This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room. Dozens of little awestruck faces crowded the large studio as I took position to practice my Sugar Plum Fairy solo."

    So, a little more than one line, but I really like the image this creates of cute little ballerinas excited to see a performance. This comes from A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal.

  7. Such a fun cover!

    My first line (for commenting: I have a different one on my blog) comes from "Suit and Suitability," a vintage Jane Austen retelling by Kelsey Bryant.

    “GUILTY.”
    The voice of the jury foreman was deep and emotionless, so uncannily like her father’s that Ellen Dashiell could almost believe Dad was convicting himself.

  8. The Love Inspired books are so lovely. I always love checking them out in the book section at Wal-Mart. :) Happy Friday!

  9. Interesting. It's such an interesting word ... so many meanings!

    I'm sharing from The Dishonourable Miss DeLancy over on my blog, but I'm currently reading The Captive Brides collection. I've just started Waltzing Matilda by Lucy Thompson. Here's the first line:

    Matilda Brampton took one more look at the walls of the Parramatta Female Factory and vowed it would be her last.

  10. Happy Friday! I’m featuring A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano on my blog, but here I will share the first line from a novel I recently published called Reluctant To Wed. “Sitting in her grandfather’s traveling coach, Emma suddenly felt the impact of her decision.”

  11. On my page I shared the first line from Heather Day Gilbert's "God's Daughter" a fantastic story rich in viking history. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction.

    I'll share here an old favorite of mine "Heidi"
    From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a footpath winds through green and shady meadows to the food of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below.
