First Line Friday – The Heart Between Us

Happy Friday friends! We made it another week. Welcome to another addition of First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! Now, I know that tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and I should be doing an Irish themed book, but I just couldn’t help myself. I need to share this book with you. Frist, the cover is cute, and it makes me want to jump in an airplane and go to France. Scratch that, it makes me want to travel all over the place. Second, the story is wonderful. I’m sure you’ve seen it all over Facebook recently since it just released this week 🙂

“Amy says in order to move forward, I have to stop clinging to the past.”


Wow. Some books just speak to you with the first line and this is certainly one of those. I mean, how many of us as clinging to the past? I think Amy’s right. We need to let go and move forward! Friends, I do hope you check this book out if you haven’t already. And let me know what you think about it!

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! I have this book to read too and can’t wait to get to it! What a great first line!!

    My First Line Fridays comes from a book I’m hoping to get to soon, Between Friends by Debbie Macomber.

    Dearest Momma,
    I thought you should know Mike and I had a baby girl on September first. I realize Daddy said I wasn’t to contact either of you ever again, but I felt you’d want to know you had a granddaughter.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!???

  2. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jesse.” Justin Cade raised a beer to his reflection then gulped half of the microbrew.
    “Bad Boy Rancher” by Karen Rock

  3. Lindsey, the cover is darling, the title is clever, and the first line is thought-provoking. Well done!

    My first line comes from Gloria Clover’s Washed Under the Waves. “The prince is here!”

  4. A Search For Refuge ( Haven Manor) by Kristi Ann Hunter:
    Marlborough, England 1804
    Margaretta had used the word DESPERATE many times in her life, but she’d never truly known the meaning until she stood in the open door of a mail coach, clutching an eight-month-old letter and praying that someone in this minuscule market town would know where the writer had gone when she moved on.

  5. I adored this book! I know it’s early in the year but it’s jumped to the top of my favorites list.

    My current read is Finding Evergreen by Jennifer Rodewald:
    Brandi’s head throbbed. The hateful words still sizzled in her ears as the front door brushed open.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Happy Friday!

    Today at my blog, I am sharing the first lines from Jennifer Delamere’s latest novel, The Heart’s Appeal. It’s such a great book!

    Here I will share the first lines from my next-up book, Finding Evergreen by Jennifer Rodewald. This is my first read of this author’s works, but I am very excited!!!

    Brandi’s head throbbed. The hateful words still sizzled in her ears as the front door brushed open. Ethan stepped over the threshold.”

  7. Great story!

    Ty Remington blamed the homemade orange marmalade cake for why he found himself huddled under an overhang off some faraway path in Glacier National Park, shivering, praying he might live through the night.
    Storm Front by Susan May Warren

  8. Though I’m sharing a book with an Irish hero, The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman, on my blog today, here’s the first line of an audiobook I’ve borrowed from the library on a friend’s recommendation, The Bookshop on the Corner (or, in the UK, The Little Shop of Happily Ever After) by Jenny Colgan:

    “The problem with good things that happen is that very often they disguise themselves as awful things.”

    Happy Friday!

  9. On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from a book I’m currently reading, Praying For Strangers, by River Jordan. Here, I’ll share the first line of the chapter I’m currently on. “We’ve spent the night at the ski resort catching up and sharing belated Christmas presents.” Have a great weekend!

  10. I loved this book! It’s such a great first line.

    I’m sharing the first line from A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal on my blog today, but I’ll share here from the book I’m currently reading: A Chance at Forever by Melissa Jagears:

    “I wish you luck, George.”
    “It’s Aaron now. Don’t forget.”

    Have a great weekend!
