It’s First Line Friday time. Pick up any nearby book and share a line in the comments below.
Today’s first line comes from a novella in a collection titled:
With This Ring – A Novella Collection of Proposals Gone Awry
The first novella in the collection:
The Husband Maneuver by Karen Witemeyer
So here’s the first line. Drumroll please…….

Lovely first line! Happy Friday!
Thanks for commenting! Happy Reading to you.
Such a fun novella! I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:
“A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”
And on that cheerful note, happy Friday!
Oh wow. Interesting beginning. Thanks for commenting. Happy Reading.
I want that to be me right now!
Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.
“Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

Another author to look into. Thanks for commenting. Happy Reading.
Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first paragraph to This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller. Here I will share the first two lines from the book I’m currently reading, I Am My Beloved by Caryl McAdoo. It’s a retelling of Song of Solomon.
“Abishag held the cups level and took small ladylike steps, careful not to slosh. She grinned then placed the wine — except water really, her mother wouldn’t allow her real wine — on the stone table.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend with lots of quality reading time!
Interesting beginning. I’l have to look into it. Thanks for commenting. Happy Reading.

The Book I’m sharing on my blog is Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan but I’m currently listening to The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and I’ll share the first line from that here: “We slept in what had once been the gymnasium.” Happy reading this weekend! 🙂
I love all the new authors I’m learning from doing this. Thanks for commenting. Happy Reading.
