Welcome to First Line Friday! Each Friday I pick a book and share the first line with you. In return, I hope you’ll share with me a first line from whatever book you have at hand!
This week I am sharing the first line from the book I am currently reading, His Frontier Christmas Family by Regina Scott. I’ll be sharing my full review of this novel on December 4th as part of a Prism Book Tour. Be sure to sign up to follow my blog so you don’t miss out.
Here’s the first line:
Near Seattle, Washington Territory
Someone was watching her.
Here’s the description:
After taking guardianship of his late friend’s siblings and baby daughter, minister Levi Wallin hopes to atone for his troubled past on the gold fields. But it won’t be easy to convince the children’s wary elder sister to trust him. The more he learns about her, though, the more he believes Callie Murphy’s prickly manner masks a vulnerable heart…one he’s starting to wish he was worthy of.
Every man in Callie’s life chose chasing gold over responsibilities. Levi-and the large, loving Wallin family-might just be different. But she can tell he’s hiding something from her, and she refuses to risk her heart with secrets between them. Even as they grow closer, will their pasts keep them from claiming this unexpected new beginning?
Sequel to Mail-Order Marriage Promise and previous books in the Frontier Bachelor series set in pioneer Seattle.
Note: Although it says “sequel”, this book may be read as a stand alone.
