First Line Friday – A Mother for His Family

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another FLF hosted by Hoarding Books! It’s been a tough week for me, so I am thankful that I can unwind and talk about books here. Today I’m featuring a book by Susanne Dietze. She is so sweet, and I have enjoyed reading her stories. I hope you’ll give her books a try!

Here is today’s First Line……

With no warning, the rain-soaked ground underfoot gave way, and Lady Helena Stanhope slid backward into the mucky trench.

That is a great lead in. Plus I should tell you the story is set in Scotland in 1819! Can’t get much better then that!

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!

    Today, my First Line Friday comes from the next book on my TBR mountain, Coming Home to Island House by Erica James…..

    There she is, the scarlet woman herself.’
    ‘She’s back then.’
    ‘Back to flaunt herself right under our noses. She’s no shame, that one.’
    ‘No shame at all.’

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I think this looks like a good book and I’m a huge fan of Love Inspired books!

    My first line today (that I’m also sharing on my blog) is from Melissa Tagg’s From the Start. “How in the world had rain earned such a romantic rep?”

    I hope you have a good weekend and can recover from your rough week.

  4. Susie Dietze penned a fabulous book. There is a companion book also: The Reluctant Guardian. Equally as good!
    My first paragraph is from Melody of the Soul from Liz Tolsma:

    Anna Zadokova held her mother’s tiny body close. If only she could imprint the feel of her on her skin. She breathed in her scent, a combination of rose water and fried onions. Everything she loved best about her. A light mist dampened them both.
