First Line Friday - February 23, 2018

Happy First Line Friday! I hope this finds you at the end of a great week! My week was much more hectic than usual, but I had time to start reading the book I'm featuring today and it has been a bright spot in my week. I'm not wanting to put this book down! 

My first line today if from A Family for Easter by Lee Tobin McClain.


"'Fiona Farmingham clutched the edge of Chez La Ferme's elegant tablecloth and wished she were home on the couch with her kids, eating popcorn and watching movies."

What's the first line of the book closest to you? Let me know in the comments and then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today.

  1. Happy Friday!!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m hoping to get to soon, Looking for a Hero by Debbie Macomber.

    Savannah Charles watched the young woman wandering around her bridal shop, checking prices and looking more discouraged by the moment. Her shoulders slumped and she bit her lip when she read the tag on the wedding gown she’d selected.

    Have a great weekend!!

    Over on my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from Sarah Sundin's "The Sea Before Us". It's a fantastic story!
    Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 5 of the same book.
    "Teleprinters chattered and telephones buzzed, and Dorothy carried a stack of diagrams into the intelligence office."

  4. I’m sharing about “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky on the blog today. My first line will come from “Keturah” by Lisa T. Bergren since it’s the closest book to me.

    In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened. his daughters received them all.

  5. I'm a fan of seasonal books. This cover is just right for spring and Easter.

    This is what I plan to read some more of when I get home tonight:

    Not much had changed about Laurel Cove, North Carolina in the ten years since Livy Johnson had last visited. (Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger)

  7. Reading a book "in season" always makes it just a bit more fun :D

    I'm sharing from Michelle Griep's The Innkeeper's Daughter on my blog today, so here are the first two lines of another book I'm currently reading, Winter in Thrush Green by Miss Read:

    “Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire.”

    Happy Friday!

  8. On my blog, I’m featuring A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer. Here, I will share a line from a book I am currently reading. The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. The first line in the Preface is “One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that we were not meant for this world alone. We were meant for Heaven — and Heaven is our ultimate home. But what exactly is Heaven?” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first lines from Lisa T. Bergren's fantastic novel, Keturah. Here, I will share the first lines from the novel I'm currently reading, A Brush with the Beast by Richard Sones.

    "Good night, Mr. D," chirped an elderly secretary as Nick left his office on another late night. Slim, young, black briefcase in hand, he walked briskly toward the door.
