First Line Fridays – 4.27.18

It’s First Line Friday time.  I’ve been off the grid a bit over the past month with a musical I was assistant directing, spring break college hunting for my son and several family birthdays.  Now I’m back and I have a new batch of First Line’s to share.  I recently went through my plethora of books I stored under my bed (it was like finding treasure!) and found several I plan to share over the next few weeks.

So here’s the book I selected for todays First Line:

Love Finds You in Revenge, Ohio by Lisa Harris

Love finds you in revenge, ohio by Lisa Harris Christian romance fiction

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…….

Revenge, Ohio, 1884

The only thing worse than being a spinster is being a twice-jilted spinster.
