First Line Fridays – 5.11.18

It’s First Line Friday time.  Pulling again from treasures read a while ago, today’s first line comes from another Love Finds You… book.  I thought I would do them all in a row!

Love Finds You in Hope, Kansas by Pamela Griffin

Book Cover Love Finds You in Hope, Kansas by Pamela Griffin - First Line Fridays Denise M. Colby Blog Post

I have read several from this line and being the history/geography lover that I am, have found these real town names and fiction stories fun.

So here’s the first line.  Drumroll please…….

Hope, Kansas

Midsummer 1889

“Don’t just stand there with your mouth hangin’ open like a fish. Do you want a new ma or don’t you?” Andy directed the tense question to their little sister, Maggie, who hovered outside the stable door in clear indecision about whether to join them.

It’s First Line Friday time.  I’m going back into my keep pile for today’s first line.

A Maid to Match by Deeanne Gist

First Line Fridays – 2.2.18

First Line Fridays, Hoarding BooksIt’s First Line Friday time.  Today’s first line is taken from the novella:

A Letter To the Editor by Robin Lee Hatcher

So here’s the first line.  Drumroll please…….

Molly Everton flung open the door to her father’s office in the Killdeer Sentinel, not caring that it hit the wall with a loud crack, “Is it true, Father?”

A Rita Award finalist, this novella is one of four in a collection titled “Four Weddings and A Kiss”.  The collection has a fun prologue with four pastors sitting around a campfire.

The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen

So here’s the first line.  Drumroll please…….

Jane Fairmont Bell sat alone in the keeper’s lodge she had once shared with her husband.

That sentence says so much, doesn’t it?  And makes me ask a lot of questions:  What happened to her husband?  Why is she alone?

It’s First Line Friday time!  This week it’s a line from a book I recently read titled:

Where There’s Smoke
