About the Book

The Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Virginia

August 6, 1814

“What would it feel like to drown … to float listlessly down … down … beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?”

Whoa! That’s some first line!

I have loved every book in this series, and very much cannot wait to get into this one. If you have not read any of the books in this series, I highly recommend that you do. They are all excellent stories. So far I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Liberty Bride, which makes me even more excited to read it. It is my next-up “to-read” novel, so definitely check back soon for my review.

Hope you all have an excellent weekend filled with fantastic reading time!

    Happy Friday!👏

    My first lines come from The Patient One by Shelley Shepard Gray…….

    “Thank you for coming. I’m so glad you could make it,” Mrs. Warner said as she clasped Katie Steury’s hand between her own. “Andy . . . well, Andy would have been pleased to see you here.”

    Have a very relaxing weekend and happy reading!😊

    Since YULE LOG MURDER is three stories by three authors, I decided to leave the first of each story.
    YULE LOG MURDER by Leslie Meier
    “Well, I’ll be,” declared Phyllis Lundquist, waving small slips of paper. Phyllis was the flamboyantly dressed and coiffed receptionist at the Pennysaver newspaper office, and the slip of paper was one of the order forms for classified ads that ran in every issue of the weekly paper that chronicled “Life as it is lived” in the tiny coastal town of Tinker’s Cove, Maine.
    DEATH BY YULE LOG by Lee Hollis
    As Hayley stood in her kitchen, a glass of red win in one hand, and her cell phone in the other, which was pressed to her ear, she found herself fighting back a flood of tears. She was desperately trying to stay strong and pretend everything was perfectly fid, but she knew deep down in her gut why her son, Dustin, was calling.
    LOGGED ON by Barbara Ross
    “It looks like a mousse,” my sister, Livvie, said. Charitably.
    “It looks like southing a moose left in the woods” her husband, Sonny, correct. “An unhealthy one.”

    Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I’m currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (there’s no chapter #s) here: “Do her eyes accuse you?” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    Since you “stole” my first line book! I’ll pick up another off my pile.
    Collectors Edition of Woman of Courage by Wanda Brunstetter:
    Dansville, New York 1837

    A shiver of excitement ran through Amanda Pearson as she gazed at her mother’s wedding dress lying across the end of her bed.
    Happy reading. I am reading The Liberty Bride.

    That’s definitely some first line!

    I’m featuring the first line from Carolyn Miller’s latest release, The Making of Mrs Hale, over on my blog today, but at the moment I’m reading Jerusalem’s Queen by Angela Hunt:

    “They are all here, gathered like vultures around my bed, watching with long faces and occasionally bending near to listen for my breathing.”

    Have a great weekend!

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Looking Glass Lies” by Varina Denman:

    “I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again.”
