Hi, y’all! It’s time again to peek at a first line and chat books in the comments! I enjoy hearing from y’all on any post but Fridays are extra fun!

Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

Sam wouldn’t lose another kid on his watch. If the homecoming queen was out here, he intended to find her. Even if he had to trek through the entire wetern edge of Glacier National Park, beat every bush, climb every peak.

Rescue Me is an adventure packed romance and as illustrated by those first lines, Sam Brooks is a dedicated and determined man! I highly recommend this series and this author!

    I can’t wait to read this one!

    My first line today comes from the first book in Tamara Leigh’s medieval ‘Age of Faith’ series, The Unveiling:

    ~~Lincolnshire, England, October 1149~~
    A nightmare seized him from sleep, turned around his throat, and filled his mouth so full he could not cry out. Desperate for air, he opened his eyes onto a moonless night that denied him the face of his attacker.

    This first line comes from Chapter 8 in, “The Waves Break Gray,” by Sibella Giorello. It’s the 6th book in the Raleigh Harmon mysteries. “When I pulled into the parking lot for the Icicle River trail, the sky was that tender baby pink, as if this day was born with its own life, full of promises.” Love these mysteries! 🙂

    The Elusive Miss Ellison
    Carolyn Miller

    And the first line is…

    St. Hampton Heather
    Gloucestershire, England
    June 1813

    “‘Why, Livvie! Whatever are you doing?’ Lavina Ellison placed down her gardening trowel, swiped perspiration from her brow, and smiled up at her friend. ‘Good Morning, Sophy.'”

    Happy reading and happy Friday!

    Hi Beth Erin, and Happy Friday! I love Susan May Warren’s writing!

    My first line is from Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham due out in April.

    One step into the massive, glass-walled waiting area was all it took. In a cataclysmic chain of events, someone bumped into Eisley Barrett, sending her purse and all of its contents skittering across the glossy floor of Heathrow International Airport.

    I’m reading James Markert’s The Angels’ Share. Here is the first line of the prologue:

    The house was quite, even the baby, who’d been crying all evening from teething.

    I ABSOLUTELY loved Rescue Me!! My first line is from an old book that, although I don’t have it’s publication date, it was a present in 1908 to someone. “It appears to me, looking back over a past experience, that certain days in one’s life stand out prominently as landmarks, when we arrive at some finger-post pointing out the road that we should follow.” But my very favorite line is: “The heart knoweth its own bitterness, Phoebe, and it may be that in your place I should fail utterly in patience; but if we will not lie still under His hand, & learn the lesson He would fain teach us, it may be that fresh trials may be sent to humble us.” from Uncle Max by Rosa Carey

      That’s fascinating! As much as I adore new books, old books are pretty awesome too!

    “You don’t want to do this.” I just received a copy my critique partner LeAnne Bristow’s debut with Love Inspired called Her Texas Rebel. So excited for her!

    My line this week is from “Inventing Eleanor: The Medieval and Post-Medieval Image of Eleanor of Aquitaine” by Michael R. Evans.

    “Eleanor of Aquitaine is one of the most famous women in medieval history, yet also one of the most inaccessible.”

    Happy Reading!

    I want to read this book!!! I even think my sister bought it not too long ago (she works at LifeWay, so picks up random books here and there 😉 — that is a place that would be dangerous for me to work at!) 😀

    On my blog I shared my first line from the favorite, Pride and Prejudice. 😉
    “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man, in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
