First Line Friday – 5.12.17


It’s Friday! Yay! Not only does this mean I get to sleep in tomorrow, but it also means today I get to share the first line from a book near me and then hop around the to all my blogger friends’ posts and discover the awesome new books they are sharing! Yippee! I can never discover too many books. 😀

So without further ado…. This week’s first line comes from Amanda Cabot’s A Stolen Heart which is book one in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy and has been waiting impatiently on my TBR list for far too long! Agh! So many books, so little time! (And yes, I fully intend to continue adding to that list! LOL)


A Stolen Heart

Here’s the first line:

May, 1880
No matter what anyone said, she wouldn’t believe this was a mistake.

Intriguing, isn’t it?

Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

  1. You might want to read this book with a box of tissues nearby. 🙂 My first line is from, “Stars in the Grass,” by Ann Marie Stewart.
    “We rushed upward into the night sky, lifted by an unseen force.”
    Happy Reading!

  2. Definitely intriguing! I have the first line from Tamara Leigh’s ‘The Vexing’ on my blog today, but I’m going to leave you with the first line from ‘Still Falling’ by Crystal Walton, releasing on 17th May:

    “On his way to their squad car, NYPD Officer Josh D’Angelo fanned away a sense of dread rising with the steam coming through the subway grates.”

    Happy Friday 🙂

  3. My first line comes from The Magnolia Duchess by Beth White.

    AUGUST 13, 1814

    She could set fire to the letter in her pocket and it would still be true.


  4. Oh, that does sound good! On my blog today I’m sharing a line from Pepper Basham’s book The Thorn Healer. I wanted to share something different in the comment, so I’m choosing a book that my son is currently reading.

    “As soon as she heard the first pop, pop, pop of the distant muskets, the young mother extinguished the morning fire and closed and barred the cabins shutter.” Abandoned on the Wild Frontier (The Trailblazer books) by: Dave & Neta Jackson Bethany House, 1995

  5. On my blog today is the first line from Irene Hannon’s Sea Rose Lane so I am going to leave the first line from Between the Reins by Liz Isaacson that is releasing on May 16th. “The barn door banged open as Gil, one of the male counselors, burst through it, “Owen, there’s a fight we need your help with.”

    1. I’m trying to remember if I’ve read Amanda Cabot before and can’t honestly recall. So even if I have, it’s clearly been a long time. I know she’s a popular author, so I’m looking forward to reading her work. 🙂

    1. What a great observation! I hadn’t paid much attention to her face until now and I’m noticing that whatever she is looking at doesn’t seem to be pleasing her, so I’m going to say if the man is handsome, he must be very aggravating at the moment. 😉
