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."
