First Line Friday - December 7, 2018



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books!  I am currently reading The Dad Next Door by Stephanie Dees. It's a Love Inspired book and I always seem to like those. :)



"Claire Conley stood on the overgrown lawn - the Alabama humidity wilting her hair, flies circling - as she confronted her legacy."


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.

  3. Doesn't sound like much of a legacy!

    My first lines come from a long anticipated read -- Searching for You by Jody Hedlund. "Sophie Neumann nuzzled her nose against Danny's chest. His arms tightened around her possessively. 'You're my girl now. A Bowery Girl.'"

    Happy Friday!

  4. I fancy the Love Inspired books!


    I am showcasing the book `Shadows of Deception` (Ashley Dawn) on my blog,

    So here I'll put the first line of a non-fiction book I am reading.

    Next Level Thinking (Joel Osteen)

    So often we let our environment, how we were raised, and other people's expectations of us set the limits for our life.

  5. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth………

    I am folding laundry at my dining room table when the police car pulls up. There’s no fanfare— no sirens or flashing lights— yet that little niggle starts in the pit of my stomach, Mother Nature’s warning that all is not well.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm! Happy reading!😊📚💕

  7. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first couple of lines from Silent Days, Holy Night by Phyllis Clark Nichols. I'm just starting chapter 2 now, so I'll post the first lines from there.

    "'Since I can't go to Grancie's today, could I go tomorrow?' I didn't think Dad was looking, so I took another sugar cube and stirred it into my tea."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚
