First Line Friday –

Happy Friday! Welcome to another First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! How has your week been? You know what I noticed about this week? I wasn’t driving home in the dark from work! That is always a highlight for me in a cold winter, because it means the days are getting longer. And you know what that means? Spring is coming. Eventually.

But while we’re still in cold and cozy mode, let’s get back to talking about books. This week I’m featuring a book by Toni Shiloh. If you have never read one of her books, you need to. She is a must-read author!

Even Carter stared at his girlfriend, admiring her beauty.

I know that’s not a lot to go by, but trust me when I say it gets real interesting after that. I’ll be posting my review soon, so be on the look out!

And now it’s your turn to share your first line! Grab the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments. Don’t forget  to check out what everyone else is reading at Hoarding Books!

  1. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from the book I’m reading now, Liza’s Second Chance by Molly Jebber!

    Lisa Schrock, clenched her teeth and dug her fingers in the fresh dough in her Amish bakery. The forced smiles, nods to her friends’ compliments, and suppressing the truth about her husband had been difficult, but she’d managed to keep her miserable marriage a secret.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!

  2. Thanks for featuring Returning Home!!

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

  5. Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am showcasing Naomi Rawlings’s novel Love’s Bright Tomorrow. Here I will share the first line from the novel I am currently reading, Mary and Bright by Shannon Graupman.

    “Mary Bradford’s heart raced as she sat on the edge of her king sized bed — her gaze affixed on the single white sheet of paper resting on the nightstand.”

  6. The first line on my blog is from a novel by Michelle Griep, The Captive Heart. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter 5 from the book I’m currently reading, The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller “It was entirely possible that the excitement of last month’s come-out ball was about to be surpassed.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. And she has a new one coming out in March!

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh’s latest release, The Awakening, on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from my current read, ‘Weaver’s Needle’ by Robin Caroll:

    “Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.”

    Have a great weekend. 🙂

  8. I love Toni’s books!

    My current first line is from Cathy Gohlke’s Until We Find Home: “Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres.”

  9. I have one of Toni’s books on my to-read pile, and another on my to-review pile. I’m looking forward to reading them!

    I’m sharing the first line from Aint Misbehaving by Marji Laine on my blog. I’m currently reading My Sister’s Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. It’s the middle book in a trilogy and I really shouldn’t have read the third book first, because it did ruin some of the big-picture suspense. Here’s the first line:

    The cry for help came as I was coasting toward the bicycle rack at the far end of the story.
