About the Book

Olin Springs, Colorado, 1880

The shooter did not flinch.

Isn’t that a fantastic first line? Totally made me want to read on.

I am only to chapter 10 in this book — it’s been an insanely busy week — but so far I am really enjoying this novel. I can already tell you that I am definitely going to recommend it! It has some really well-written characters, and the situation they have been placed into makes for a good, quick read.

    Ty Remington blamed homemade orange marmalade cake for why he found himself huddled under an overhang off some farawy path in Glacier National Park, shivering, praying he might live through the night.

    That’s definitely a fantastic first line. It’s a compelling title as well!

    I’m sharing the first line of the latest novel from James L Rubart, The Man He Never Was on my blog.

    I’m currently reading The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon, a modern marriage of convenience story based on the Book of Esther. Here’s the first line of the Prologue:

    Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest.

    Yes, that’s a great first line!
    Right now, I’m reading The Cottage by Michael Phillips. Here’s the first line:
    “The letter two weeks before had been brief. Less than half a page. Yet in an instant it had turned her life upside down.”
    Happy Friday! 🙂

    My husband is leaving me. The thought , the reality, presses against my throat as I stand outside and take in the view from the back patio of our home.

    That was a nice read. 🙂

    On my blog today, I’m sharing the first line from Jody Hedlund’s book, Love Unexpected. Here, I will share the first line from the second chapter of the book I’m currently reading, Mail-Order Revenge by Angela K. Couch. “The town of Bumble Bee appeared to consist of the sign bearing its peculiar name and a cluster of rustic buildings.”

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday!
    The book I’m sharing on my blog is The Butterfly and the Violin, but I’ll share here what I’m currently reading- All Things New by Lynn Austin: “Josephine Weatherly thought she’d already lived through the darkest hour of this endless war, but she had been wrong.” Hope you have a great weekend!

    My first lines come from Coveted by Grace White.

    “He watched her through his mind’s eye. She was different: her mortal form fragile and unassuming. Nothing like the formidable and unforgiving Goddess he knew her to be. And yet, she was the same.”

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m sharing from Where the Fire Falls on my blog today but I’m currently reading The Backcountry Brides Collection, so here is the first line from the first novella, Shenandoah Hearts by Carrie Fancett Pagels:

    Prologue
    Philadelphia 1753
    “Ladysmith, you have a gentleman caller–maybe two.” The voice of her employer, Jacob Owens, held a slight tease.

    Happy Friday!
