First Line Friday - September 20, 2019



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Do you have special plans for the weekend? I am planning to go yard saling. :) Whatever you do, I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy a good book.

My first line today comes from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I enjoy reading this author's Christmas novellas every year and I'm anxious to get to this one.


"Krista Galloway didn't usually second-guess herself, but as she slowed down the U-Haul truck on the outskirts of Winter Hill, she was assaulted with some serious doubts."

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.

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from A Christmas Haven by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall. It's a great Christmas novella that I am thoroughly enjoying. I'm currently on chapter 17, so I will share the first line from there.

    "The sun hung low on the horizon as Arlen released twenty-four cows from the milking parlor into the pasture."

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

    Today on my blog I shared from Something Needs to Change by David Platt. Right now I'm about to start The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey so I'll share the first line from that here: "Fire ripped through Finn's right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm." Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! My first line(s) is from "I Don’t Chase the Garbage Truck Down the Street in My Bathrobe Anymore!" by Dianne Barker:

    "Weddings make me laugh. It's that pledge to the spouse, "All my worldly good I thee endow." If my husband had only known!"

  8. I’m sharing from Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy on my blog today, so I’ll share the second line:

    “She smiled inside, but kept the emotion tucked away.”

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!
