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 IS THE DAY!!!! In just a few hours, I’ll be unveiling the cover for my debut novel, Waltz in the Wilderness! I am so excited! It has taken me years to get to this point and it is finally here! I finally get to share this precious story with the world! To celebrate, I’m offering a giveaway so be sure to check out my cover reveal post happening TODAY at 1pm PT/4pm ET.


This week I’m sharing the first line from a book I just added to my TBR by new-to-me author, Elaine Manders. It’s called Lacy’s Legacy and I just fell in love with the cover.

Lacy's Legacy

Here is the first line:

Montana, 1872

Lacy Avant got as far as the door and something burst in her.


A sweet historical western love story with heart-pounding danger.

Ethan Wilkes plans to go west to start a horse ranch, but he sure isnโ€™t ready for a wife, especially a grieving widow, great with child. But his Aunt Milly, proprietress of the Western Home and Hearts Matrimonial Agency, disagrees. She believes Lacy Avant is perfect for him, and after she explains Lacy’s plight, he heads to Montana Territory.
When he arrives in Buffalo Run to claim his mail-order bride, he finds Lacy fighting a ruthless rancher whoโ€™s taken over the town, run off half the farmers, and murdered her husband. Can he win Lacyโ€™s heart while hunting down the killer before he strikes again?
Can Lacy trust Ethan with her life and her heart? And is the land really worth the risk of losing another husband?
The bullets will fly and faith and love will be tested in this fast-paced Christian romance set in untamed Montana Territory, the first in a new multi-author series taken from case files of the eccentric matchmaker who runs the Westward Home and Hearts Matrimonial Agency.
