First Line Friday - November 9, 2018



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books!  

Today I'm sharing the first line from A Merry Miracle in Romance by Melanie D. Snitker. This is a sweet Christmas story. I just finished reading it - look for my review next week!


"'Savannah Wilson heard the light knock against the front door just moments before the dogs started barking.'"

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. I wonder who could be knocking at her door. Captivating!

    This week I am featuring the first sentence from `Swimming in the Deep End` (Christina Suzann Nelson)

    So here I'll feature the first sentence from my next TBR book.

    `Someday I hope to write a book on the subject of "The End". (Through My Father's Eyes` by Franklin Graham)

  2. My first line comes from A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner:

    Manhattan
    September 2011

    The length of floral-patterned challis rested on the cutting table like a bridal bouquet undone.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!!!

  3. “If the Etonville Little Theatre was doing “Carousel” instead of “Bye, Bye Birdie”, I could sing “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over”” Lola Tripper said, humming and sipping a cup of coffee in a back booth of the Windjammer restaurant, which also functioned as my office.

  6. Happy Friday!🍁

    My first lines come from Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh….

    This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it. Lyndie St. James stood in the hallway of Judson Music Studios, willing herself to open the door. A door that, in the past few months , had come to mean so much, thanks to constant reminders that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!🍁🙃💕

  7. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright but I'm currently reading A Light on a Hill by Connilyn Cossette so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (30) here: "Staying close to the narrow river that now barreled downhill through the valley toward Beit She'an, we kept within the trees as much as possible." Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from An Unseemly Wife by E.B. Moore on my blog. Here is the first sentence from Chapter 6:

    “On and on, they rode alone through the woods, between the branches, a flaming sun setting thin clouds aglow, until one night the sky cleared to a deep black studded with uncountable white points.”

  10. Romance? Is that a place? What a cute idea!

    I'm sharing from Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears over on my blog, and I'm currently reading another in the same genre - The Lieutenant's Bargain by Regina Jennings. Two great books from two great Christian Western romance writers! Here's the first line from The Lieutenant's Bargain:

    "If she'd known there were so few washrooms in Indian Territory, Hattie Walker wouldn't have drunk three cups of coffee at breakfast that morning."
