First Line Friday - October 5, 2018



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books!  

Today I'm sharing the first line from Christmas with the Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe. It's available in stores now, so even if you aren't quite in the mood for a Christmas book yet, you should grab it so you have it when the season arrives. 


"'Woo-hoo! Go get 'em, cowboy.'"

Now it's your turn! Share 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.

  1. Happy Friday!😊

    My first lines come from Jacob's Bell by John Snyder...

    A deafening screech, then a loud thud jolted Jacob McCallum upright from his slumber as the freight train pulled into the Chicago yards on a chilly September morning in 1944.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚🎃

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Connilyn Cossette's newest novel, Shelter of the Most High. I cannot wait to get into this book. Currently, I am reading A Tale of Two Hearts by Michelle Griep. It is SO good. I am loving it. I am on chapter 23, so I will post the first line from that chapter here:

    "He'd meant to talk to his uncle, truly he had, but the next day passed in a blur of festive activities -- and never once had Uncle been without Miss Whymsy at his side."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with lots of good reading!

  6. Happy Friday! On my blog today, I am featuring one of my favorites, “The Princess” by Lori Wick. Here I will share the first lines from Chapter 3. “Nikolai stood alone in his bedroom and told himself to breathe deeply. He had the window wide open, cool as it was, but still felt as if he were going to suffocate. This was his wedding day.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! I forgot about this week being about favorite genre but I DID share one from one of my favorite authors. I have to say historical fiction is my favorite, but I also like suspense to change things up a bit. I'm currently in-between books but I'll be be starting a new book after dinner tonight. Hope you have a great weekend with lots of quality reading time!
