    That is a great first line!

    My first line comes from Deborah Raney’s Circle of Blessings:

    Dakota Territory, 1864

    It was almost closing time, and in all of his seventeen years, James Collingwood could not remember being so bone-weary as he felt tonight.

    Merry Christmas!

    My FLF comes from a book Iโ€™m reading now Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery.

    Kelly Murphy was willing to accept certain injustices in the world. That brownies had more calories than celery.

    Happy Holidays!

    Today on my blog I am featuring Desert Duet by Debra Marvin. I’m just beginning chapter 3, so I will leave the first line from that chapter.

    “The new gray fedora, with its crisp, black grosgrain band, would be a stylish, but dismal failure at preventing sunburn.”

    I’m really enjoying this story! Happy Friday. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. That first line reminds me of Marsha Woolery telling John-Boy Walton that, “It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind!” ๐Ÿ™‚
    Over on my blog, I’m featuring Monster by Frank Peretti, but over here, I’ll share the first line of another on my TBR pile, The Cottage by Michael Phillips: “The letter two weeks before had been brief. Less than half a page. Yet in an instant it had turned her life upside down.”
    Merry Christmas, Annaliese! May God give you many reminders of His love and mercy for you in Jesus Christ this season! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I didn’t know Frank Peretti was still writing. I’ll have to check out your blog. The Cottage sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing. And a Merry Christmas to you also. May God fill your home and life with a sense of His presence.

    She changed her mind – not what we want to hear, especially at Christmas …

    I’m sharing from All is Bright by Andrea Grigg over on my blog, a wonderful novella set in Australia … which means a summer Christmas (FYI, that’s normal for me. Not so normal for most of you, or for my Icelandic pastor and his family.)

    I’m currently reading A Sweethaven Christmas by Courtney Walsh, an new favourite author. Here’s the first line:

    “Why is that woman staring over here?” Lila shifted in the tall-backed linen-covered chair and nodded towards a blonde woman at the bar.

    I suspect this is going to be more than a Christmas story …

    Blessings as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour this week!
