First Line Friday!

Welcome to another addition of First Line Friday! What have you guys been up to this week! We have renovations going on at work. Let’s just say it’s been loud, dusty, loud, dusty, well you get the picture. We’re making great progress, but still a couple of weeks away from being totally done. My coworkers have been handling it well. Thankfully I work with a great bunch of people!

Aside from that, I have been reading like crazy still! Weekends, nights, lunch breaks….whenever I can. I’m not sure what has brought on this reading frenzy lately. May be the size of my TBR pile. Or it could be that I’ve got so much going on that I need that mental break from the world! At any rate, I’m ready to share this week’s great first line.

This week’s first line comes from Jennifer Beckstrand’s new book, Return to Huckleberry Hill. This isn’t the first I’ve read of this series, and I’ve enjoyed them all. Make sure you stop by tomorrow for my review and chance for a giveaway!!!

Here it is…….

Reuben Helmuth had a sinking feeling in his gut the minute Delores Johnson answered her door, and it wasn’t because Delores was glaring at him from behind her screen.

There you have it guys! And now it’s your turn! Open the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments! And make sure to check out what my friends are reading this week! Happy Friday!

  1. Good morning. My first line is from, Vendetta, by Lisa Harris.

    “The initial step off the sheer face of a three-hundred-plus-foot drop was always the most terrifying.”

    Happy Reading!

  2. Well, that opening got my attention!

    I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger’s upcoming release on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from ‘Nightshade’ by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

    “Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

  4. My first line is:
    Once there was a tree… ~The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

    I have been reading this book to my kids every night for the last month. They love it!

    Dinh @Arlene’s Book Club

  5. I need to be reading more… haven’t had much success this week though. 😛 This week, I’m trying to put some reading time into “The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman” (for research) and “Threads of Suspicion (by Dee Henderson–my first of hers to read). I think I’ve managed 20 pages in Sherman and 2 chapters in Threads? Yeah… not so great. Maybe this weekend…??

  6. Happy Friday!! Your book sounds good!
    My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: “The dream started the way Jennifer’s actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten.”

  7. I’m looking forward to a long weekend of reading! Hubby has been a highway patrolman for 30 years, and since Memorial Day weekend is a high travel day, there’s no holiday celebrating at our house. Good thing I have a tall TBR! This one is one it: Here’s my first line (from the prologue): “Night crept over the hills, smothering the landscape in a cocoon of darkness that would hide him in a few minutes.” — Colleen Coble’s Haven of Swans (the cover is intriguing, too!).

  8. I’m hitting the books this weekend! YAY! Right now I’m reading…

    The euphoria of winning a hard case vied in her thoughts with wondering what came next as Haden McCarthy left the Alexandria courthouse.

    Beyond Justice by Cara Putman

  9. From the prologue of Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection
    Kansas, 1865
    Abigail Melton entered the kitchen to the sight of her mother slumped over the table, a telegram clutched in one hand.

    The fictional town of Turtle Springs lost almost all their men to the Civil War.

  10. On my blog is the first line from Irene Onorato’s upcoming release so I have decided to share the first line from a book that’s gotten buried on my kindle entitled Back Home Again by Melody Carlson.

    “Thin rays of afternoon sunlight filtered through the leaves of the old maple tree that dominated the front yard of the Howard family home.”

  11. I just started this book today. 🙂

    Here’s mine from a book I just finished reading: Count Me in by Mikal Dawn.

    “The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer’s neck stood at attention.”
