First-Line Friday #28


Worth the Risk

by Heather B. Moore


About the Book

Alicia Waters hid a grimace as she looked up to greet the next patrons walking into the Alpine Lodge restaurant.

I am looking forward to reading this one! The cover is pretty, and the premise sounds super cute. It’s been crazy busy at school this week and I am in desperate need of not only the three-day weekend, but for something quick and easy to read that leaves me smiling. I think this book is just what I am looking for!

Now it is your turn! Grab the book you are currently reading, open to chapter one, and post the first sentence (or second sentence) in the comments below. Then head on over to Hoarding Books to see all of the FLF pages this week (just click on the FLF button below).First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books


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. I agree with you on both the cover, and the first line. It sounds like a fun read.

    I’ve got the first line from The Saturday Night Supper club up on my blog, and I’m currently reading another great contemporary romance – Paper Hearts by Courtney Walsh. She’s one of my new favourite authors. Here’s the first line:

    “I can’t believe she did this to me again.” Abigail Pressman stared at the computer screen in disbelief.

  2. Happy Friday!

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, August and Everything After by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski…..

    I started wearing my grandmother’s old cat-eye glasses in June, right after my latest crush nearly crushed me.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    I’m featuring “The Saturday Night Supper Club” by Carla Laureano on the blog today, but my first line here will be the book I’m currently reading, “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky.

    Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I l Iove the cover, it is entrancing to read the book. Enjoy your 3 day weekend. Today I am featuring one of my favorite author’s cat series featuring Joe Grey and his friends. The last book began the story of the next generation and I am looking forward to the book coming out in November.

  7. I hear you on the quick and easy read. I need something to make me laugh, but all three of the books I am currently reading are on the serious side. Oh well. Maybe I’ll ask one of my kids to tell me a joke. 😉 I’ve added Worth the Risk to my TBR. Thanks! 🙂

  9. Happy Friday! My first line is from Forward to What Lies Ahead by Chloe S. Flanagan:

    “Regina’s cellphone buzzed sharply, shattering the silence of her apartment and making her coffee table vibrate.”

  10. From Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky:
    Paragraph 5 of page one.
    February 1909
    Bella has visited many lovely homes in London after her presentation at court and the rounds of balls and dinner parties during her first two seasons, but she’d never seen a more lavish home tha Broadlands, her family’s new country estate.

  11. I really agree with you on this one: the cover is so pretty! My lines were: “Tell me a story.” Grandma smiled through a mess of wrinkles and brushed a lock of wavy blonde hair off my brow. “Another? Three books weren’t enough?” “Not a book story. One of your stories.” Happy Saturday by now 😉
