First Line Friday – The Promise of Breeze Hill

Happy Friday everyone! August is going to be a busy month for me. There’s reading (of course), work (darn), vacation time, and thinking about school starting – which in New York isn’t until after Labor Day. Tomorrow my daughter and I are going on a bus trip to NYC! I am both excited and scared. We’ll be free to roam the streets for about eight hours. We are going to see Phantom of the Opera, and hope to get into Christina Tosi’s bakery (for those of you who don’t know who she is, she’s a judge on MasterChef). It’s going to be great. And then……count down to CFRR!!!!!! I am so excited about that and cannot wait to meet the wonderful authors and bloggers I’ve had the privilege of getting to know the past couple of years.

Onto books…..this week I’m bringing you the first line from a book I’m currently reading for Tyndale Publishing. It comes out next week so get your preorders in now!! Here is the first line from Pam Hillman’s The Promise of Breeze Hill…..

  1. London. May 1914. Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. From A Name Unknown by Roseanna White! Loving this book. Can’t get enough Roseanna!

  2. That’s another read on my TBR. 🙂

    Here is mine:

    “I never meant for any of it to happen.”
    The Last Summer by Brandy Bruce

  3. This one sounds great!

    This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room. A Season to Dance – Patricia Beal

  4. I really enjoyed reading The Promise of Breeze Hill! Fantastic story and characters! On my blog I shared the first line for “To Wager Her Heart” another page turning delight! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. *Sigh* I am obsessed with NYC and can not wait to take my daughter when she is a bit older. The Bowery Boys wrote a really cool book about the history of the city and it is going to be our guide book to all the out of the way places that tourist don’t typically go, but history nerds will love, haha. Have fun, have a great weekend!

  6. Phantom of the Opera…super jealous…that sounds lovely. 🙂 I met this author a couple of years ago at a writing conference, and I bought one of her books–she was super nice. 🙂

  7. That first line!! My favorite era! (of many… okay, maybe I just have a lot of “favorites” which I know is superlative, but yeah…)

    Now that I have a bookshelf within reach of my desk, I’m grabbing one I hope to read this year.
    “Romulus White stood motionless in the crowded ballroom, staring at a woman he’d once longed for more than his next breath of air.”
    – From this Moment, by Elizabeth Camden

  8. I’m currently reading My Unexpected Hope by Tammy L Gray, which has a great first line:

    Moonlight leaked through the dirt-splotched windows of Joe’s Bar, it’s silvery rays glinting off the tumbler in front of Laila Richardson’s saddest customer.

    I’m sharing the first line from The Space Between Words on my website. I hope you stop by and check it out.

    And enjoy CFRR!

    Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
