first-line-friday-3Hey Everyone! It’s First Line Friday. So grab a book near you and share the first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first line from Flights of Fancy by Jen Turano. This was my first book by Jen Turano and I am quite happy to say that her story more than lived up to its beautiful cover. I think I let this one sit on my TBR a bit longer because the sample I listened to on audible didn’t strongly intrigue me. What a mistake. If the sample had contained just a bit more of that scene, I’d have better understood just how compelling this story truly was. Before the very first scene was even finished, I was hooked. Despite numerous responsibilities demanding my time and attention, I contrived ways to squeeze this book in so that I finished in under three days. I just could not wait to discover what would happen next. If you have not already read this book, I highly recommend doing so!

P.S. I really want her dress!

Flights of Fancy

Here are the first lines:

July 1885

Wonderful news, darling. I have it on good authority from none other than Mr. Ward McAlllister that the Duke of Montrose has taken a special interest in you.”


Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she’s always known and finds herself to be an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely on his own merits. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he’s unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora’s secret threaten those they love, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.
