First Line Friday - August 9, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Today I'm sharing the first line from Rocky Mountain Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe. It was recently rereleased in combination with Reuniting with the Cowboy by Shannon Taylor Vannatter in a book called Sweetheart Reunion, but I can't seem to find a picture of that. I'm looking forward to reading both books!


"It had been a good many years since Rebecca Anshaw Simpson had inhaled the earthy combination of cattle, horse, and hay that was home."


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. I actually like blustery days and I'm curious about "fur" being in the title. Thanks for sharing your first line here!

  3. Not my idea of home, but it's a great first line :)

    I’m sharing the first line from Catherine West’s latest book over on my blog, As the Light Fades. I know we’re not supposed to judge books by the cover, but this has a great cover and I’m itching to get into it.

    Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from Light From Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker: "Cohen Marah clears his throat quietly, more out of discomfort than the presence of any particular thing that needs clearing, and attempts to step over the body for a second time."

  5. Happy Saturday!
    Yesterday on my blog I shared the first couple of lines from A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/08/first-line-friday/. Currently, I am reading The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken. I'll share a line from there.

    "A thick cloud of dust hovered on the top of the hill just outside the Bates estate."

    Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂💜📚

  7. A lovely opening line. :)

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Starting Anew by Melanie D. Snitker.

    Lynn Crosby sat up in bed, unsure of what actually woke her up.
