First Line Friday – 6.30.17


Today is a very special Friday. You see, today I get to celebrate the birth of the woman who most assuredly inspired my love of reading:  my mom! So in honor of my mother’s birthday, I’m sharing the first line from a book which she has recently read and enjoyed.

A Match Made in Alaska is the # book in Love Inspired’s Alaskan Grooms series written by Belle Calhoune.

A Match Made in Alaska

Isn’t that just a beautiful cover? Thanks mom for choosing such a pretty book! 🙂

Here’s the first line:

“Welcome to O’Rourke Charters.”

Okay, so it’s a fairly bland first line, but I think it will help if I tell you the first paragraph reveals the heroine is boarding a small plane in Alaska wearing leopard print pajama bottoms. Oh and she’s heading for “Love, Alaska … a town filled with hot bachelors looking for love.” I certainly think that makes things a little more interesting. 😉

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

Then head on over and share your first line with these friends:

  1. I really enjoy Belle’s books!
    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from Rediscovering Americanism by Mark R. Levin: “I often wonder what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founders would think about today’s America.

  2. Happy Birthday to your Mom! I like your new profile picture. That book does sound interesting.
    I borrowed my 9-year old son’s current read to share in the comments. This is a super fun mystery book for kids and one that’s been read more than once!

  4. Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. I am blessed with two amazing daughters and glad Kathleen has chosen to be an author. She has an imagination that astonishes me. I am blessed that she honors me with being one of her beta readers. Can’t wait to follow her journey. So exciting!

  5. I guess you shouldn’t judge a book by its first line! 😉

    I have the first line from Over Maya Dead Body on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from another great read about to release, Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”
