    Marianne Neumann’s fingers were shaking so hard she could barely pry open the first record book. There were half a dozen more in the drawer. How could she possibly search through all of them?

  2. This book.....I keep hearing so many good things about it. I mean it's by Becky Wade, so obviously lol. I need to find the time to read it!

    I'll share a first line from a book I hope to start reading very soon.

  3. Happy Friday!😎 I have that book to read too! I can’t wait to get to it!😃

    My first lines come from Loving Grace by April Smith.

    I’M LATE. THE PHONE IS already ringing off the wall by the time I make it to my desk. I toss my keys and bag to the side, not really bothering with where they land. I’ll get them later. I grab the phone and snag the corner of the desk with my hip. That’s going to leave a mark.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊

  4. This series from Becky Wade has been wonderful so far (I have a feeling I'll love book three just because I'm a fan of friends to more tropes).

    My current read is The Truth Between Us by Tammy L. Gray:

    Nine months, twenty-seven days, and four hours.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I shared the first few lines of Rosie Walsh's debut "Ghosted" on my blog, but I'm going to share an old favorite here.

    "The fans scream for her, but they don't really know the girl on the magazine covers - the girl with the guitar and the easy smile. Her given name is Delilah, and they think she goes by Lilah. But anyone who really knows my best friend calls her Dee."

    That line comes from Emery Lord's "Open Road Summer". It's a light, fun and romantic read, perfect for, well, summer. Haha!

    Hope you enjoyed it. Happy Friday! :D

  6. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is “Lord Livesey’s Bluestocking” by Audrey Harrison. I will share the first line from chapter 22. “Livesey stood next to his aunt in the side chapel, taking in the scene whilst gritting his teeth.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Happy Friday!

    This book is soooo GOOD!

    I’m reading Newlywed Games by Mary Davis right now, so here’s the first line: “Bruce Halloway had looked up with a start when he heard the ruckus outside his office window.”

  10. I’m sharing from Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton on my blog today, so here is the first line from chapter 2:

    “The babysitter was late, Addie and Walsh were flying around the house in superhero capes yelling the Batman theme song–“Da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Batman!”–and Jenna had just poured a mug of coffee when Walsh bumped into her from behind, spilling hot liquid down the front of her black Full Cup Coffee T-shirt.”

    Happy Friday!

  11. I love this cover, and this series :)

    I'm sharing from The Forgiving Hour by Robin Lee Hatcher on the blog today. Not that I managed to stop with the first line—I've now finished it!

    Here's another great line, from Chapter Thirty. This is one I've been learning the truth of in the last year, attending my church prayer meeting with ladies three or four decades older than me:

    Being a Christian isn't a destination; it's a lifelong journey. There's always something new to learn along the way, always something fresh to be revealed.

  12. I loved this book!!!

    This week for FLF, I am showcasing Roseanna M. White's novel Whispers From the Shadows. Here, I will post the first line from chapter 2 in the book I'm just starting today, The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham.

    "Em, you look so improved."

    Kind of sounds insulting...I'll have to read on and find out the context. 😉

    Hope you're having a blessed weekend with lots of fun reading time. 😊

  13. The book I shared on my blog is The Hidden Side by Heidi Chiavaroli, but I'm currently reading Things I Never Told You by Beth K Vogt so I'll share that first line here: "The what-ifs taunted me every time I visited my parents, but any hope of beginning again had vanished years ago--if there'd ever been one. Hope you have a great weekend!
