First Line Friday - July 26, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Today I'm sharing the first line from The Nanny's Secret Baby by Lee Tobin McClain. I've read several of her books and enjoyed them so I am looking forward to this one. 


"Jack DeMoise watched his eighteen-month-old son bang a block against the doctor's desk drawer."

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. Cute cover!

    I shared from The Bridge Between by Lindsey Brackett over on my blog. Here I'll share from The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey -- Fire ripped through Finn's right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Express Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower) by Kimberley Woodhouse.

    Here I'll share the first line from chapter sixteen of the book I'm currently reading:

    "Footsteps signaled someone's approach, and Grace paused her kneading in the pre-dawn morning, waiting for the customary greeting from one of the brothers."
    Four Dreams of You by Sondra Kraak

  3. Happy Friday! I haven't started this yet, but my first line (well - 2 lines) is from "Margin of Error" by Christy Barritt:

    "Hunger and anger battled inside him like two storm fronts colliding. A violent friction clashed in his very soul."

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/25/first-line-friday-95/. I'm currently reading Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from A Lady's Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson but it's also the book I'm about to dig into so no extra line yet. Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. That's an intriguing title!

    I'm sharing the first line of Under a Camperdown Elm by Janet Chester Bly on my website today, but my current read is Love and Other Mistakes by debut Australian author Jessica Kate. Here's the first line:

    "Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&Ms on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions."

    Happy reading!
