First Line Friday - August 2, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Today I'm sharing the first line from The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter. This is the first novel that I've read by her! I've recently started really enjoying Amish fiction so I'm discovering lots of authors that are new to me.


"Tears sprang to Lenore Lapp's eyes as she stood with the others who had come to witness this special English wedding."

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. It is always fun to visit other blogs and see which books people choose to feature for FLF! This week I'm sharing the first line (and a few bonus lines...I just couldn't help myself) from The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken.
    Here I'll share the first line from Chapter 8 of the same book.
    "Nearly all the apple trees along the main drive had bloomed, their pale petals washed by moonlight against the dark sky."

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Brett, Billionaire Bodyguard” by Autumn Macarthur & Alexa Verde:

    “Brett Jarvis grimaced, yawned, and snatched up his ringing cell phone. Two a.m. phone calls rarely meant good news, especially in his business.”

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first line from A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/01/first-line-friday-96/. I'm currently on chapter two of A Daring Venture by Camden. I'm on a Camden kick! 😀

    "By the time Rosalind arrived at the crowded Manhattan restaurant to meet Mr. Drake, her nerves were wound as tight as a piano wire."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 😀❤📚

  6. A sweet opening line!

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate.

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