First Line Friday – Miss Serena’s Secret


Happy Friday everyone! We made it another week 🙂 Welcome to another edition of First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! The weather has been so beautiful around here lately that I wish I could just skip work and read on the beautiful bench hubs got me for an anniversary present this year. Do you like to read outside? It’s so peaceful!

For today’s first line, I’m sharing a line from Carolyn Miller’s newest novel that comes out next week! I absolutely adore her books (The Captivating Lady Charlotte was my favorite!) and always look forward to a new release.

Warm summer sun lit the scene before her: a golden-yellow oak table boasting a squat blue vase with an arrangement of ferns and pink roses. 


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 First Lines come from If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren…….

    “Watching you die is the last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning.” Sierra said it in a low mutter, nearly under her breath, but Ian heard it anyway, a slash across his chest, right between the ribs.

    Have a great weekend, stay cool, and Happy Reading!???

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Susan May Warren’s book “The Heat is On”.

    “Skye Doyle was going to get everyone killed.”

  3. Happy Friday! My first line comes from Dreaming Spies by Laurie R. King….

    “It’s a rock, Holmes”

  4. That’s a pretty scene to open with. My first line is from The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall. “To put it as simply as possible: this is the story of a polygamist who has an affair.”

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Woman of Clay by Linda Caddick. I’m currently on chapter 11, so I will share the first line from this chapter.

    “Spring burst almost overnight in a full palette of brilliant colour, transforming the world into one which barely resembled the one Shana had inhabited just a week or two before.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with great reading time! ?❤?

  6. I like this author. I’ll have to check it out. On my blog, I’m featuring The Purchased Bride by Kit Morgan. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Four of that novel. “Herman Mayer wasn’t the brightest or the nicest man around, and he knew it.” Wishing you a great Friday!

  7. Happy Friday 🙂

    I’m so behind with my TBR pile, but I can’t wait to get to this series. I’ve heard so many positive things about it. I’m tentatively reading Miller’s Legacy of Grace series next month.

    This week’s FLF is Jen Turano’s A Match of Wits. I’m also reading Roseanna M. White’s Circle of Spies from the Culper Ring Series:

    “Marietta Hughes was the worst widow in the history of mourning.”

    Hope you have a nice weekend 🙂

  8. I’m sharing about “Trials of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry on the blog today, but I’m currently reading “Unafraid” by Carey Scott. I’ll share the first line of chapter two.

    Authentic living. What does it even mean?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  9. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from A Rebel Heart by Beth White on my blog today, here’s the first line of Chapter 2:

    “Spyglass pressed to his good eye, Daughtry crouched behind a tree at the edge of the creek running through Buckner’s Ravine.”

  10. It’s winter in New Zealand, so I could do with some of that warm summer sun …

    I’m sharing from Open Circle by Stacy Monson on my blog.

    But Then There Was You by Kara Issac has just won the 2018 RITA Award for Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements from Romance Writers of America, so I’m going to share the first line to celebrate Kara’s win:

    Paige McAlister didn’t think think it was possible, but there was something worse than being single and thirty at your nineteen-year-old sister’s wedding.

  11. That sets up a pretty scene!

    My first line comes from a hilarious novella I just finished, part of the Once Upon a Laugh collection releasing next week! “Lia ran through the prestigious 148-year-old halls, red ponytail flying behind her.” -If She Dares by Mikal Dawn
