Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I loved...LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Kristi Ann Hunter's Hawthorne House series and am anxiously awaiting getting my hands on A Defense of Honor which is the first book in her new Haven Manor series. The first line I am sharing today is from is A Search for Refuge, the prequel novella to the Haven Manor series. As of the time of this writing, it is free for Kindle on Amazon. I am a paper book kind of girl so I'm always slow to get to anything on my e-reader, but, oh...why oh why did I wait so long to read this one? 😍
"Margaretta had used the word desperate many times in her life, but she'd never truly known the meaning until she stood in the open door of a mail coach, clutching an eight-month-old letter and praying that someone in this minuscule market town would know where the writer had gone when she moved on."
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.
