First Line Friday - May 10, 2019



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! I recently finished Charmed by the Daring Cowboy by Melanie D. Snitker and it was a sweet read.


"With a shovel in one hand and a bucket full of muddy tools in the other, Dare Jackson trudged his way toward the barn."

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.
