  1. Happy Friday!😀

    Today my FLF is from a book I will be reading very soon, An Awakened Heart by Jody Hedlund.

    “Stop prostituting yourselves and run to the loving Father who will embrace you with forgiveness.” Reverend Bedell’s voice rose above the sniffles and muffled weeping of the women crowded on trestle benches of Centre Street Chapel.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!📚😀

    1. I didn’t have time to comment back, yesterday, but I thought that’s a great first line. I wonder who these women are he is preaching to and why are they repentant at the beginning of the book. Is the heroine amongst them? Definitely a great first line.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Storm Front (Montana Rescue Book #5) by Susan May Warren:

    “Ty Remington blamed the homemade orange marmalade cake for why he found himself huddled under an overhang off some faraway path in Glacier National Park, shivering, praying he might live through the night.”

    1. Interesting first line. Did the marmalade cake make him sick? 🙂

  3. I’m sharing from my current read, No Less Days by Amanda G. Stevens, on my blog today, so here is the first line from an upcoming read, Reclaiming Shilo Snow by Mary Weber:

    “The moment Earth’s United World Council officially placed seventeen-year-old Sofi Snow at the top of their Imminent Terrorist Threat list, a siren went off in the circular downtown building, and she became the most wanted teenager alive.”

    Happy Friday!

    Whisper Creek is a cute name for a town!

    Today I’m sharing the first line of That’s Amore by Marion Ueckermann on my blog. It’s the first book in the new multi-author Tuscan Legacy series. I’m now reading the third book, Rapsodia (Rhapsody) by Alexa Verde. Here’s the first line:

    Marco Carter would rather spend a day in a pit with snakes than an hour on a plane.

    Personally, I love flying and hate snakes. What about you?

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I can’t say I love flying, but I don’t mind it. However, I’m with you about the snakes. At least you understand how thoroughly Marco Carter hates flying. Lol.

    I am so sad to hear that this line of books is ending! I love this series of stories, and I will have to read this one. Happy Saturday Anneliese!

    Such expectation!

    My first lines come from A.L. Jackson’s Lead Me Home.

    “I’d always wondered why people set themselves up for disaster. Why they put their heart on the line when they knew it would only be crushed. Why they led themselves toward the slaughter like a blind, ignorant lamb. Willingly.”

    I’m featuring lines from Tess Thompson’s Deleted: Jackson and Maggie on my blog. I’m about half way through and absolutely in love with this story and the characters.
