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 The Ruby Knot by Jane Josephs, which I gave a 5-star review in my latest Kathleen’s Readers’ Club newsletter. (If you’re not already a member, sign up now!)

The Ruby Knot

Here is the first line:

Katie Ryan smiled at the picture of her first trimester ultrasound sitting among the baby supplies on her dresser.

Graphic Designer Katie Ryan is about to have a baby, the consequence of a romantic encounter with Navy Special Forces “boat guy” CJ Jansen in Las Vegas. Back home in San Diego, Katie is determined to get her life back on track, and finds herself drawn to pastoral intern Noah Davidson. But CJ isn’t about to ignore his son, and soon Katie finds herself torn between her feelings for two very different men. With her son’s future at stake, Katie is faced with a choice: should she stay with the plan she’s made, or follow her heart?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Rebecca’s Legacy” by Betty Thomason Owens:

    “Are you crazy? My father’s going to kill me.”

  2. On my blog, I’m featuring Karen Witemeyer’s novella, “The Love Knot.” Since I’m still reading it, I will share the first lines in Chapter 7. “Claire pushed away from the paddock fence when she saw Pieter exit the station house. Her heart ached with yearning at the sight of him. She still loved him. Desperately. But she wouldn’t pledge her life to a man until she was certain of him.” I wish you a relaxing fall weekend. Cooler weather has finally arrived in Michigan.

  3. Happy Friday!😊

    My first lines come from Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane by JoAnn Ross…..

    Life, as Aiden Mannion knew firsthand, could be dangerous. Anything could happen. You could be hit by a taxi while sightseeing in Times Square. Run headfirst into a tree while shushing down a diamond run pretending you were Bode Miller.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Fall!💕

  4. I’m featuring lines from A.K. MacBride’s upcoming release Shattered on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Rachael Brownell’s Chasing Fate. It’s my quirky blind date with a book this month.

    ”What do you mean, you quit your job?”

    Happy Reading!

  5. I’m not necessarily a fan of the love triangle trope (mostly because someone always loses), but this one sounds like it has promise.

    I’ve been on a romantic suspense reading kick recently, so my first line is from Tell Her No Lies by Kelly Irvin. It’s an unusual first line, but the novel definitely ticks all the romantic suspense boxes!

    Have a great wekend!

  6. The book I shared this week is Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble but I’m currently reading an ARC of The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall so I’ll share the first line here: “What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down… down… beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?” I can honestly say I don’t want to find out! Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time! 🙂
