First Line Friday

Happy Friday friends!! I am very excited to share not one, not two, but FOUR first lines with you today! WHAT!? Go big or go home right? I’ve been away from First Line Fridays for a long time. There’s been some personal things going on that have prevented me from doing extras on the blog. Those things are now behind me (YAY!) and I can return to a normal schedule.

Back to today’s post. Thank you Hoarding Books for hosting this weekly post. I love seeing what everyone is reading! Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and it just so happens it was the release day for a group of novellas that are amazing. These four authors certainly know how to write romance stories, and when they are inspired by some of my favorite fairy tales, well I knew it was going to be a slam dunk. Oh my word, I cannot read these fast enough. Ladies, get your fans ready because you are going to need them! Wowza!! I’ll just leave it at that 😉

Finding Ever After

Between Stairs and Stardust:

Sunset and sunrise captured the magnificent country chateau best.


Once upon a time, Father Francisco told Nic Ricci that to find math in music he merely had to look to Mozart.

Twice Upon A Time:

Under no circumstances would she fall for him again.

Once Bitten:

If wishes were apples, she could have baked two tarts by now.

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. My first line is from A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden

    Summer 1896

    Alex Duval’s first hint of trouble was when Eloise failed to appear at their hideaway.

  2. I’m sharing a new release on Faithfully Bookish but here’s the first line from chapter 2 of my current read, Once Bitten by Betsy St. Amant of the Finding Ever After novella collection: “He was going to stand her up.”

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano. I am loving this book so much. I’m currently just starting chapter 19, so I will share the first line from that chapter here.

    “‘A bookstore?’ Justin didn’t mean for his dismay to show in his voice when he pulled up in front of the address Melody had given him, but it escaped all the same.”

    Hope you have a really excellent weekend filled with relaxing reading time. ???

  4. Val Deniston waved good night to her last customer, relieved that they’d ignored the elephant in the Cool Down Café. No one had rehashed Monique’s rant about her husband’s affair with Nadia.
    BY COOK OR BY CROOK by Maya Corrigan

  5. Oh my, I just love those! I want to read this collection! Here’s the first line of A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden: “Alex Duval’s first hint of trouble was when Eloise failed to appear at their hideaway.”

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read today, American Omens by Travis Thrasher (Uncorrected Proof). Her is the first line from Chapter 17 “The Same Page”:

    “The moment her father stepped foot in the barn that morning, Cheyenne couldn’t help but let loose with an uproarious laugh.”

  7. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “If Only It Were Yesterday” by A. M. Heath:

    “Oomph. Something solid bashed into my shoulder, knocking me off balance.”
