Today is a very special Friday. You see, today I get to celebrate the birth of the woman who most assuredly inspired my love of reading: my mom! So in honor of my mother’s birthday, I’m sharing the first line from a book which she has recently read and enjoyed.
A Match Made in Alaska is the # book in Love Inspired’s Alaskan Grooms series written by Belle Calhoune.
Isn’t that just a beautiful cover? Thanks mom for choosing such a pretty book! 🙂
Here’s the first line:
“Welcome to O’Rourke Charters.”
Okay, so it’s a fairly bland first line, but I think it will help if I tell you the first paragraph reveals the heroine is boarding a small plane in Alaska wearing leopard print pajama bottoms. Oh and she’s heading for “Love, Alaska … a town filled with hot bachelors looking for love.” I certainly think that makes things a little more interesting. 😉
Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first (or your favorite) line!
Then head on over and share your first line with these friends:

“The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.” ~The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett
Thank you. I will pass that on. 🙂
Ther is is very pretty imagery in that line. Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoy Belle’s books!
My first line is from Rediscovering Americanism by Mark R. Levin: “I often wonder what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founders would think about today’s America.
Hmm that’s an interesting question. Thanks for sharing!
Happy Birthday to your Mom! I like your new profile picture. That book does sound interesting.
I borrowed my 9-year old son’s current read to share in the comments. This is a super fun mystery book for kids and one that’s been read more than once!

Aw, thank you!
Oh thanks for the recommendation. I’m always looking for new books for my little bookworms, and my eldest is really into mysteries. 🙂
Happy to help! 😊
The stack of photographs slipped to the floor, splaying across the wood planks like wildflowers over a grassy meadow. – Strand of Deception by Robin Caroll
Oh I love that simile! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. I am blessed with two amazing daughters and glad Kathleen has chosen to be an author. She has an imagination that astonishes me. I am blessed that she honors me with being one of her beta readers. Can’t wait to follow her journey. So exciting!
Aww. Love you, Mom.
How pretty!!! I love weddings 🙂
Me too! 🙂
I guess you shouldn’t judge a book by its first line! 😉
I have the first line from Over Maya Dead Body on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from another great read about to release, Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”:
“Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”
Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Happy Birthday to your mom, and happy 4th weekend!
Thank you! 🙂 Happy 4th!
Happy Monday and Happy 4th of July!
Thank you! 🙂
