First Line Friday – Book from my TBR pile

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe we’ve already said goodbye to two full weeks of September. Where does the time go? The leaves have started to change color here in central NY, but it is mostly dull colors. Personally, I like the bright reds and oranges. Fall happens to be my favorite season. I love seeing God’s artwork across the trees, the temperatures are a little more bearable, and some of my favorite flavors return – pumpkin and apple! What’s your favorite season?

Today I pulled a book from my TBR pile, which is still quite large in case you were wondering. But I’m gaining on it! Slowly, but surely. Today’s first line comes from Lis Wiehl. I read the first two novels in the Newsmakers series, and really enjoyed them. I’m hoping that I’ll like this one just as much. If you’ve read it, please share your thoughts with me!

Here is today’s first line……

  1. I read the first one in this series, but haven’t gotten around to reading the others yet. I enjoyed the first one, but I have to say the third person present tense is not my favourite POV to read in!

    I’ve got the first line from Janet Ferguson’s new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    “Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.”

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with ‘have a good weekend’, but I hope you do! ?

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    1908 4 days until Christmas
    “The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge.”

  3. I have this series, but I haven’t read it yet. Great first line!

    I’m sharing about “The League and the Lantern” by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is “All of You” by Sarah Monzon.

    Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

    Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.

    Happy Weekend!

  4. She was so young and lively. in her latte twenties. but she was dying of cervical cancer, which had spread to many parts of her body.
    More Glimpses of Heaven

  5. A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
    October 15, 1940
    Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

  6. I think I read the first in this series, but the ending upset me and I haven’t read the others. Maybe I should …

    I don’t think my kids even know there was such a thing as film canisters. They were useful for a lot of random things, but I never made a rocket out of one!

    I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

    At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.

  7. I’m not a fan of cold weather, so if I have to give up summer weather, I do love pumpkin season. That’s the best part about fall…pumpkin muffins and coffee. 🙂

  8. The cover for this book is stunning. I will check this book out!

    Right now, I’m reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It’s the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

    “There was almost nothing there. Almost.”
