first-line-friday-3

Hi Everyone! It’s First Line Friday, so grab a book near you and share your first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first line from a book by a new-to-me author – Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Beth K. Vogt.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Here is the first line:

Thousands  – even millions – of women had routine choose-a-church, select-a-dress, plan-a-reception kinds of weddings.

Wedding bells and storm clouds collide in the first engaging novel in a brand-new series about destination weddings, the power of love, and the possible mishaps and missteps that happen on a couple’s journey down the aisle to “I do.”

Paramedic Vanessa Hollister has put her adolescence behind her, including the unwanted label of being the new kid in town over and over again, thanks to her father’s military career. She’s overcome what her mother called “the biggest mistake of her life” and is planning an elegant destination wedding in Destin, Florida with her new fiancé. But will the reappearance of her first husband from her what-were-you-thinking teenage elopement disrupt her dream of an idyllic beach wedding?

As a professional storm chaser, Logan Hollister is used to taking risks. However, a reckless decision during the last tornado season has him questioning the future of his team, the Stormmeisters. Coming face to face with his ex-wife eight years after their divorce compels him to confront his greatest regret: losing Vanessa. Does their past give him the right to interfere with her future?

A fast-moving, powerful hurricane throws Vanessa and Logan together as they evacuate to a storm shelter along with other residents of the Florida Gulf Coast. Forced to spend time together, the pair battles unexpected renewed feelings for each other.

Vanessa and Logan are faced with a choice: Should they accept, once and for all, their teenage marital mistake? Or is God offering them a second chance at happily ever after?

  1. I have this one waiting for me. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m sharing about “By the Waters of Babylon” by Mesu Andrews on the blog today, but I’m currently reading “Where the Fire Falls” by Karen Barnett so my first line will come from there.

    Olivia Rutherford applied lip rouge the same way she painted -with bold, broad strokes. Anything to distract from the truth.

    Happy Friday and hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with reading excellent books! 😀

  3. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of the 8th book from the In Death series, Conspiracy in Death. But here, I’ll share with you the first line of one of the books I’m currently reading. This one is from Kit Frick’s “See All the Stars.”

    JUNE, SOPHOMORE SUMMER
    (THEN)

    We went to the party because Ret insisted. I was perfectly happy right where we were: lying on our backs in Jenni’s sprawling front yard, building our best-ever summer playlist, telling time by the dandelion clocks until the sky was a white haze of down. We were idle and airy. We had perfected the summer loaf.

    Hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend! 😀

  4. I’ve been longing to have time to get to this book by Beth!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Other People’s Children by Ellen Fannon (which I have laughed so hard through the little bit I started reading): Prologue:

    “Why are children so childish?” Robin groused to herself as she sat valiantly attempting to put two coherent thoughts together for her newspaper column that was due tomorrow.

  5. Happy Friday!😎

    My first lines come from Carolina Mercy by Regina Rudd Merrick…..

    Lucy Dixon wanted it to be a bad dream, but it wasn’t. Auto pilot. It was the only way she was getting through this. Daddy was dead.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖

  6. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring a Regency romance by Sally Britton, “The Gentleman Physician.” I’m still reading it so I will share the first line in Chapter 20 here. “Are you going to resume glaring at Miss Devon when she returns?” Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from the third Lady Alkmene Callender Cosy Mystery on my blog today. Here are the first lines from the fourth, Fatal Masquerade by Vivian Conroy:

    “Can’t this thing go any faster?” Denise Hargrove snapped at the driver. During the drive she’d consulted her watch over and over again, exuding a nervous energy Lady Alkmene Callender found hard to place.
