First Line Fridays

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.

In return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you choose in the comments below.  And then head on over to:First Line Friday

Happy Reading,

  1. Haven’t read this one but I enjoy all of the authors in the collection, so I need to get it!

    Here are the first couple lines from one I recently finished:

    Her head throbbed and grogginess gripped her. She rocked as if on giant waves. (from Thread of Revenge by Elizabeth Goddard)

  2. That sounds interesting. I’m adding it to my TBR. 🙂 Thank you!

    I’m sharing the first line from Anne Mateer’s No Small Storm over on my blog, so I’ll share a different line here. It’s from A Bride At Last by Melissa Jagears:
    September 1885
    At the sound of running footsteps, Kate Donovan glanced up from dumping mop water in the alleyway outside the school building.
    Happy weekend!

  3. One my blog today I am featuring one of my favorite author’s books can effect a perception of a person or an event. Written in the 70’s it is still good today. I am reading THE AWKWARD SQUAD by Sophie Henaff. The CL is “Paris, August 9, 2012 Anne Capestan was standing at her kitchen window waiting for dawn to arrive. She drained her mug in one gulp and set it down on the shiny green tablecloth. She had just drunk her last coffee as a police officer. Or had she?”

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from Kizzie’s Kisses by Zina Abbott:

    “Kizzie Atwell felt her breathing become more labored.”

  5. Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first lines from the three novellas in A Night in Grosvenor Square. It’s a new Timeless Regency Collection. I’m 1/2 way done, and I’m loving it so much. Currently, I’m starting chapter 5 in the second story, so I’ll share that first line here:

    “In spite of Anne’s attempts to distract herself from thoughts of Davis Whitledge, hours of repetitive work allowed her mind to drift.”

Would love to hear your thoughts....
