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.

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

Maid to Match by Deeanne Gist Historical Romance Book cover Deeanne Gist is one of my favorite authors. 

I loved how she showed the servant side of this era in this book.

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

Like a butterfly breaking free from its confining cocoon, Tillie Reese emerged from the barren, tan-colored servants’ hall into the opulence of the Biltmore’s main level.

The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen

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?
