first-line-friday-3

Welcome to First Line Fridays! The day we grab the book closest to us and share the first line. Join the fun and discover your next read!

Today I’m featuring, the book I’m currently reading, True to Youย by Becky Wade. This book has been waiting on my TBR for far too long. Have you read it?

True to You

Here’s the first line:

Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn’t all fun and games.

Winner of the 2018 Christy Award Book of the Year

After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.

Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he’s diagnosed with an inherited condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.

The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John’s already dating someone and Nora’s not sure she’s ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they’re seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.

  1. I shared from Sweet on You on my blog! What a great series. Here is the first line from Lori Benton’s upcoming release, The King’s Mercy. “Alex McKinnon roused to the press wood beneath his cheek and an ominous churning in his gut.”

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh, I loved reading this story. It is my favorite of the series!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Sherrinda Ketchersid’s debut novel “Lord of Her Heart”. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 11 of the same book.
    “Tension filled the air as servants jostled each other in a frantic pace to prepare meals for those at the tournament.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today I shared the first line from Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner but it’s also the book I’m about to dig into so I don’t have an extra line at the moment to share. Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens — https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/09/first-line-friday-86/. It’s such a good book … I highly recommend it. Currently, I’m reading Shine the Light by April McGowan. I’m on chapter seven, so I’ll share the first line from there:

    “Shannon didn’t feel comfortable having Justin stay with her.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚โค๐Ÿ“š

  5. The quote I’m sharing on my blog today is from the novella collection An Amish Reunion. This is the first line from page 81 of my current read, Who I Am With You by Robin Lee Hatcher:

    “Ignorance, Ridley discovered, isn’t bliss.”

    Have a great weekend!
