Welcome to First Line Friday! Each Friday I pick a book and share the first line with you. In return, I hope you’ll share with me a first line from whatever book you have at hand!
Today I’m sharing the first line of Mail Order Revenge by Angela K Couch. I’ve been meaning to read this book for a while now and I am so glad that I finally found the time to read it last month! This was such a fun read, I didn’t want to put it down. With a decidedly unique twist on the mail order bride theme, this story will keep you wondering what is going to happen next. If you haven’t already, I definitely recommend finding the time to read this book.
Here is the first line:
New York, 1882
It had to be him.
Elizabeth Landvick knows of one man to blame for her family’s loss of fortune and her parents’ deaths. Now, she will stop at nothing to take her revenge and recover their wealth. Even travel across the country to marry the man’s son.
With his focus on his sprawling Arizona ranch, Axel Forsberg has little time for wooing a woman, so when his father finds him a bride from the east, he trusts he won’t regret the convenience. Until horses go missing, barns burn to the ground, a range war begins…and he loses his heart.
Now it’s your turn to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first (or your favorite) line!
