First Line Friday with Debra Marvin

Hello! Welcome to the new First Line Friday!! (See end of post for more details). We’ve tried to make things a little bit easier for you – hope you enjoy!

This week has been a week. You know what I’m talking about right? But you know what is good? It’s fall! Well, sort of. Here in Central NY it’s still not quite cool enough to feel like fall, but you can see a slight change in the color of the leaves, and I’m ready for pumpkin goodies and apple cider. Are you with me?

This week I am sharing the first line from a book I recently read (review coming next week!) and adored. Debra and I rode together to attend the CFRR. she is such a delight, and I will be sharing a little bit more about her when I post the review on Monday!

Today’s First Line is……

  1. My first line is from The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristi Cambron:
    Sera James bounded through the front door of the Manhattan gallery, so excited that she nearly slipped for running across the hardwood floor in her heels.

    I’ve read Deb’s book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I need more of Heather’s sleuthing! Thanks.

  2. I always read these posts at my office desk as I’m having breakfast before work… meaning… I never have a first line with me! My kindle is at home!

    Thanks for sharing Heather’s first line, Jessica. I don’t know if it’s obvious or not, but I wrote that line from experience, as I too traveled to Edinburgh and stood on the Royal Mile looking like a complete and utter fool (like I’d never been out of my hometown!). It’s been so much fun to be part of the Singing Librarian blog tour and I look forward to more next week!

    Thanks Paula! I’ll be working on the next Heather book before the end of the year!

  4. Ooh, this sounds intriguing.

    I’m sharing about “Witness Protection” by Carol Kinsey on the blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I’m currently reading here.

    “All of the stories have been written, including mine.”
    Lu. by Beth Troy

  5. I’ve joined the FLF fun and featured a book on my blog, but I will feature a different one here: After A Fashion by Jen Turano. I haven’t started it yet, but it’s next on my list of books to read. “Miss Peabody, I do so hate to interrupt your work, but an urgent message has just arrived that requires immediate attention.”

  6. I’m sharing the first line from An Inconvenient Beauty on my blog today, but the first line I’ll share here is from Melanie D. Snitker’s Finding Forever in Romance. “A blurry mass of fur raced past Brent toward the main building of the Finding Forever Animal Rescue.”

  7. I want to read this book!

    Happy Friday!!! My first line is from Mission Undercover by Virginia Vaughan:

    “Blake Michaels pulled into the parking lot of Northshore Medical Center and cut the engine.”

  8. starting this book over the weekend – can’t wait!

    Here’s the first line of the book currently closest to me – “Someone had left the front door open.” – Portrait of Vengeance by Carrie Stuart Parks

  9. I’m currently reading An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter, and that’s the book I’m doing on my FLF post today, so here I will post the first line from the novel I’m reading next. The next book on my schedule is Rancher to the Rescue by Barbara Phinney.

    Proud Bend, Colorado, April, 1883

    “Did I read that right?” Clare Walsh peered up from her chair at the Recording Office in Proud Bend, Colorado. She blinked rapidly. “My parents are gone?”

    1. I ready something by Barbara Phinney years ago, but I haven’t seen this title before. Is it from Harlequin?
