First Line Friday - July 7, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! Can you believe it's the first Friday in July? How was your Fourth of July holiday (if you are an American reader)? Did you get any extra reading time in? My brother-in-law and his wife are visiting for the holiday and long weekend. I am enjoying their visit even if I'm not getting much reading time. :)

I recently read Season of Mercy by Alexa Verde. It's the first thing I've read by this author, but I will be looking at more books by Alexa because I enjoyed it very much. It's a marriage of convenience story which I'm not usually a huge fan of, but I loved this one. I highly recommend it if you like contemporary Christian fiction! 


"Mercy Grant's eardrums seemed to split, and so probably did the eardrums of everybody else in the church."

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. There aren't a lot of contemporary marriage of convenience stories around, so this sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!


    I'm sharing from Sing a New Song by Candee Fick on my blog, which is a fun contemporary romance. I've just started reading Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky, which is set in England in 1909. Here's the first line:

    "Isabella Grayson's shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands' south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!"

    Its about the early days of aviation, and I'm enjoying it. Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! Our 4th was great, lots of fireworks and sparklers and fun. We live close to the best show in the city, so we get to watch from our deck instead of fighting traffic to get a good viewing spot. Have a great weekend and sneak in some reading time!
