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!

This week I am sharing the first line from a book on my TBR: Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo.

Teach Me to Love

Here’s the first line:

Tinton, South Dakota
May 1899

It wasn’t right to pray he would just die.

Izzy Lawson has taken her last abuse.
When her husband dies, she has a choice to make: go home and face the family who made her stay with the beast, or head to Belle Fourche to the only friend she has left. The reserve she’s worked so hard to build crumbles in the verdant rolling hills, can she find a second chance at love in the arms of a man so different from her husband?

Conrad Oleson can’t read, and it’s shamed him for longer than he can remember.
When another teacher shows up on his front step, he’s sure his brother is meddling again. But when Izzy reveals her painful past, he can’t stay away. It’s as if fate has stepped in and created a soulmate just for him. If learning to read brings him closer to her, he’ll do about anything to make that happen. Including, teaching her how to love.

Don’t miss this sweet, western, cowboy romance. This book was originally published in the Timeless Love: Romantic Stories That Span the Ages collection.

  1. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first few lines of my current read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron on my blog. But, here, I’ll share the first lines of a book I recently finished – City of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    “He was an easy mark.

    Nahri smiled behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her tall. The younger one glanced anxiously down the alley while the older man – her client – sweated in the cool dawn air. Save for the men, the alley was empty; fajr had already been called and anyone devout enough for public prayer – not that there were many in her neighborhood – was already ensconced in the small mosque at the end of the street.”

    Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great weekend!

  2. I chose chapter two of One Final Breath by Lynn Blackburn:
    Anissa brought up the rear of their somber crew as they each nodded at Bill, the security guard in the Carrington Memorial Hospital emergency department.
    I loved all three books in this series.

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet Ferguson: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/29/first-line-friday-99/. Currently I’m finishing up Finding Miss Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano. I’ll share a line from that book here. 🙂

    “As we hurried through the hallway, his grip on my arm tightened until I half expected to hear my bones snap.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  4. I enjoyed that one I hope you can get to reading it soon 🙂
    Sorry I didn’t get around yesterday! The book I shared on my blog this week was In the Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse but I am now currently reading Out of the Ashes which is the next book in the series. I just recently started but I’ll share the first line from chapter 2 here: “Gazing down at the coffin that housed his father’s physical body, Jean-Michel counted the scoops of dark soil as they hit the lid and began to cover its surface.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂

  5. Happy Labor Day Weekend! My first line is from A Love So Real (New Hope Falls Book 1) by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Elijah McNamara gave the lightbulb one final gentle turn then glanced down at the man holding the ladder for him.”
