First Line Friday – 7.21.17

first-line-friday-3

Whether you’re looking for a good book or just curious what others are reading, you’ve come to the right place. Each Friday I pick a book and share the first line with you. This week I am sharing the first line from A Heart Most Certain by Melissa Jagears.

A Heart Most Certain

Here’s the first line:

Southeast Kansas

October 1905

Lydia King took a tentative step into Mr. Lowe’s hazy office, feeling like Bob Cratchit approaching Scrooge.

 This one is patiently waiting in my library. If you get to it before I do, be sure to leave me a comment on how you liked it!

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

  1. This one’s waiting in my library too! And I love the dress on the cover!

    I’m featuring a new release by Bethany Kaczmarek on my blog this week, but I’m going to post the first line from a book I’ve been meaning to read for aaaaaages: To Whisper Her Name, by Tamera Alexander.

    “First Lieutenant Ridley Adam Cooper peered through the stand of bristled pines, his presence cloaked by dusk, his Winchester cocked and ready.”

  2. Good morning. 🙂

    “Rebekah Carrington stood shivering across the street from her childhood home, satchel heavy in hand, cloak dusted with snow.”

    This first line is from, “A Note Yet Unsung,” by Tamera Alexander.

    I’m going to start reading this book today!

  3. I’m sharing a first line from The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson. “The change in Marie Carrington’s pocket wouldn’t pay for a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait to Prince Edward Island, let alone a bus ticket to anywhere else in the world.”

  4. Happy Friday! I’m excited to read Melissa Jagears new series!

    My first line comes from Dime Novel Suitor by Carrie Fancett Pagels. It’s part of the Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection.

    Turtle Springs, Kansas
    April 1866

    Pa had some kind of nerve, up and dying like that-just when I’d gotten used to Frank being gone.

    My first line is from Gabrielle Meyer’s novella found in the Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection
