First Line Friday is something every reader can participate in. Pick up a book near you. Type the first line in the comments, along with the title of the book and the author. Then check out the books other readers have featured in the comments on this blog or on the Hoarding Books link at the end of the post. You might find a book you would like to read simply by reading the first line.

The book I’m featuring today is A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Witemeyer. This book is part of a wonderful series by this gifted author.

Neill Archer sighed and slouched a bit in his saddle when he caught his first glimpse of Dry Gulch.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Would-be Mistletoe Wife by Christine Johnson.

    “Louise Smythe spotted her quarry and motioned her students to follow her across the sand dune.”

    This is a fun & interesting read about lighthouses and the Chicago Fire!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading and reviewing soon, A Courtship on Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand.

    Elsie Stutzman forced a smile and took the last bite of asparagus potato raisin casserole on her plate. She swallowed decisively, and it slid down her throat like a cup of wet cement.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    1. I wish you a wonderful weekend, too. We are actually leaving the country on a vacation, so we will be leaving this cold weather for a while.

    Happy Friday!!!

    I’m sharing the first line from Nicole Deese’s novel, A Season to Love, on my blog. I’m just starting chapter 23, so I will share the first line from this chapter here:

    “I dreamed of coffee: dark and rich and boldly brewed.”

    A great dream to me!!! Hope you have a great weekend, and a happy New Year. 😊
