First Line Friday!

Friday. It’s that day of the week we all look forward to. Or is it just me? I love knowing the weekend is so close by and I’ll soon have lots of family time! Oh, and let’s not forget lots of extra time to read!! And thanks to my sweet blogging friends (find their blogs at the end of this post), I have another reason to look forward to Friday. I have joined this lovely bloggers in First Line Friday’s!

Welcome to my first edition of First Line Friday. Every week I will post the first Line out of my latest read and invite you to share your current first line! Make sure you visit each blogging site to see what they are reading too. I cannot wait to see what everyone is reading today!

This week my first line comes from the talented and lovely Rachel Hauck. I love reading her books! Recently I discovered I had not yet read The Wedding Dress, although I really couldn’t tell you why. How did I miss this one? Boy am I glad I’m reading it now. I am absolutely loving it. As a bonus, a friend of mine got engaged recently so the timing is perfect. Guess who’s reading it next! 

And now it’s time……. (enter drumroll)

                                                               This weeks first line from


It was the breeze, a change in the texture of the unseen that made her look up and walk around a stand of shading birch trees.

I know what you’re thinking. What does this have to do with a wedding dress? Trust me, you’ll get it pretty quick. Click here to get your copy and find out!

  1. Welcome to First Line Friday!

    My first line today comes from Karen Sargent’s ‘Waiting For Butterflies’:

    “Maggie heard the key in the front door and looked at the clock on the nightstand: 1:48 a.m. Nearly twenty four hours had passed since the phone had jarred her awake and Sam out of bed.”

  2. Good morning! My first line comes from Chapter 2 of, “This Rough Magic,” by Mary Stewart.

    “The bay was small and sheltered, a sickle of pure white sand holding back the aquamarine sea, and held in its turn by the towering backdrop of cliff and pine and golden-green trees.”

    THERE IS A MOMENT, JUST BEFORE EVERY STORM, when the entire world pauses.
    Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading

  4. Thursday, August 26, 1847 Central Florida Wilderness
    “She hated Florida but loved her husband.”
    First line from “With This Peace” by Karen Campbell Prough.
    It is the third book in the series that tells the story of Ella Dessa.
    Gritty, real, tragic

  5. Welcome to FLF!!

    I’m with you there on the Fridays. 🙂 For me, it’s a freer day, since I teach (music) on Tuesday-Thursdays, and Mondays are the catch-up-from-the-weekend days. 😉

  6. Welcome to First Line Friday. I look forward to reading more of your posts. I listen to the Popcast with Knox and Jamie every week, and Jamie recommended the book The Throwback Special by Chris Bachelder.
    It’s a novel about 22 men who gather every fall to re-enact what many believe to be the “most shocking play in NFL history.” Hence, the first line…
    “November 18, 1985-Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, 36, suffers a career-ending compound fracture of the right leg on a sack by New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor during a telecast of ABC’s Monday Night Football.”

  7. So honored for this! Thank you. That line just kinda popped into my head and I knew it was the beginnnibg of the story. ❤ First lines aren’t always do easy. Appreciate being on your blog today.
