Readers who love clean, wholesome books and writers who write them.

The book I’m featuring today on First Line Friday is Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer. I have yet to read a book by this author that I do not like.

Cold Spring, Texas — 1868

Peace and quiet. That’s all he sought.

Don’t you just have this sneaking suspicion that he isn’t going to find peace and quiet? I love this author’s writing style, romance, humor, and spiritual encouragement. The characters are well developed. I fell in love with the main characters of this story. This is a novella, so it’s short, but I didn’t feel deprived. It’s complete and the ending is great. It held my attention from start to finish.

Now it’s your turn. 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, if you’d like to, check out the books other readers have featured in the comments on this blog and on the Hoarding Books link at the end of this post. You might find a book you would like to read simply by reading the first line. You can also click on the title of the book above and it will take you to Amazon so you can see what the book is about, read the reviews other readers have shared, and purchase it if it interests you.

    My FLF comes from a book I’m reading now, Only Yours by Susan Mallery….

    MONTANA HENDRIX’S perfectly good morning was thwarted by a hot dog, a four-year-old boy and a Lab and golden retriever mix named Fluffy.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😀

    Opening the door was the hardest part. Not that she expected to find it locked, because no one out here in this part of Texas ever locked anything. The Countess and the Cowboy by Kathleen Y’Barbo from the Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers Romance Collection

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading! 🙂

    I love Karen Witemeyer’s writing. She’s so good.

    I’m sharing the first two lines from A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from the novel I’m currently reading, Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn.

    “Homicide investigator Ryan Parker flashed a thumbs-up to his dive buddy and fellow homicide investigator, Gabe Chavez.”

    Let me tell you, that thumbs-up quickly becomes a thumbs-down!!! This book is really gripping. I can’t figure it out!!! 😄 Happy Friday.

  5. I need to do a complete Karen Witemeyer re-read. She is one of my favorites.
    I’m sharing from Mary Connealy’s Now and Forever on my blog today, but here are the first lines of another second in series book with a heroine that loves tending her sheep, Beloved Hope by Tracie Peterson:

    Oregon City, Oregon
    May 1850

    “You can’t be serious.” Hope Flanagan looked at the man who sat opposite her at her sister and brother-in-law’s kitchen table. “You expect me to testify at the Cayuse trial.”

    Happy Friday!
