First Line Friday #1


The Captivating Lady Charlotte

Book 2 in the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series by Carolyn Miller


Click here to read the novel synopsis on Goodreads.

“The room glimmered with a thousand points of sparkling light, the bright glow from the enormous crystal-dropped chandelier glinting off heavily beaded gowns, ornate mirrors, and the desperation shining in dozens of pairs of eyes.”

Oh my goodness, I love Carolyn Miller’s writing so much. This single sentence alone is proof of her amazing talent. If you have not done so yet, I highly recommend reading the first book in this series, The Elusive Miss Ellison. Click here to read my review for book 1.

I love Jesus, my husband, and my daughter. I love reading and reviewing Christian fiction. And, I am a high school English teacher trying to get kids to fall in love with reading every day!

  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!
    I wanted to be the first one to comment on first line fridays! Yay — I was!

    1. Hello Paula. I am very excited to read that book too. However, I need to quickly read another book first in order to give my review by deadline.

  2. Welcome to this super fun FLF group Nicole! πŸ™‚

    I’ve been wanting to read this book so badly! Luckily it was free for Kindle the other day so hopefully I’ll get a chance to read it. Great descriptions in that first line!

    Here is mine:

  4. I now have both of her books in this series on my Kindle to read in that “someday” when I get to it. πŸ˜‰

    After reading about ten fiction books in the summer, I’m taking a fiction break and reading non-fiction. πŸ™‚ I’m currently reading “Arms and Equipment in the Civil War,” which is a super fascinating read that goes in depth with all of the weapons used, tactics used, etc.


    1. I totally understand needing a break from a particular genre. When you get to both books eventually, you will not be disappointed! The non-fiction book sounds fascinating. I will have to check it out!!!
