First Line Friday – 6.16.17


Can you believe we are already halfway through June? I don’t know about you, but I feel like yesterday was April. At least it’s the weekend, right? Well technically it’s Friday, but Friday is a fun day around here so I’m counting it as the start of the weekend.

This Friday I’m sharing the first line from a book I’m currently reading:  For The Record by Regina Jennings.

For The Record is the third book in the Ozark Mountain Romance series. Here’s the first line (okay, lines):

October 1885
Pine Gap, Missouri

Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privelege of belonging to Texas. Not that he despised the rest of the world for its misfortune, but there was a difference.

This line could almost make the hero sound like a stuck up jerk. I haven’t read too far yet, but my impression isn’t that he’s a jerk. Just that he has a definite opinion about things. I haven’t made my mind up yet as to how much I like him. Guess I’ll just have to keep reading. 😉

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

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from Karen Kirst’s new LIH book The Engagement Charade, coming out July 1st (and it’s REALLY good!): “Alexander Copeland’s one goal in life was to be left alone.”

  2. Good morning. My first line is from “Missing,” by Lisa Harris.

    “Nikki Boyd slid out of her white Mini Cooper as two bagged bodies were being wheeled from the one-story house nestled in one of Nashville’s nicer suburbs.” 🙂

    1. Hmm. I’ve never thought of phone calls quite that way, but I suppose it’s true. Unless it’s the debt collector for someone you don’t know that put your phone number on their financial records. Then, not so easy to ignore the 3 calls a day. Oh well. Thanks for stopping by! Happy weekend!

    I recently started Three Little Words by Melissa Tagg. “Seven years shouldn’t feel like such a gaping span of time.”

  5. Hi Kathleen!

    Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.
