About the Book

Of all the ways Chase Thompson could prove how crazy he was about his best friend, this — right here — had to be top of the list. Or maybe it just proved he was plain crazy. Shaking his head, he balanced his travel mug on one knee and Livy’s giant purse on the other.

This is the first book that I’ve read by Crystal Walton. I’m about half-way through this book and I like it a lot. It is very engaging. Chase is the BEST part of this book! Definitely check back soon for my review of this sweet book.

  1. Hi! Happy Friday.

    I shared the first couple of lines from my current read, The Au Pair by Emma Rous. I am currently 40% in so I will share the first line of chapter 12 here instead.

    Laura
    October/November 1991
    When Alex dropped Ruth home after their lunch date, she went directly to her bedroom claiming a headache. I’d been making flapjacks with Edwin and Joel, and I chewed on a crispy corner piece as I watched the yellow car glide away down the lane. I guessed from Ruth’s headache that her outing with Alex hadn’t been a success.

    Hope you enjoy that. Happy weekend!

  2. “Those frozen daiquiri, so well beaten as it is, looks like the sea where the wave falls aways formt he bow of a ship when she is dong thirty knots.”
    Ernest Hemingway, “Island in the Stream”
    Some days you can take the temperature of our island’s anxiety by reading the column in the “Key West Citizen” called “Citizen’s Voice”.

  3. On my blog I shared the first line from We Hope for Better Things by Erin Bartels. Here I will share from Secrets at Cedar Cabin by Colleen Coble — “Bailey Fleming glanced out her patient’s window into the parking lot, but the swirling snow obscured all but the dim glow of the streetlamp.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Until I Met You: Brides of Seattle Prequel” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    “Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle.”

  5. Happy New Year!

    My first lines come from a book I’m reading now, The Marriage Bargain by Stephanie Dees….

    Cameron Quinn looked around the tiny town of Red Hill Springs. Big pots of pansies, twinkle lights in the trees lining the streets……apparently the basketball team at the local high school was doing well this year–the storefronts were full of team spirit. It had charm, he guessed, if you were a person who liked that down-home kind of stuff.

    He wasn’t.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊💕

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first line of the ‘First January’ diary entry from D.E. Stevenson’s Mrs. Tim of the Regiment on my blog today. So here I’ll share the beginning of the ‘Tenth January’ entry:

    “Meet Nora Watt on my way home from church. She has been lying in wait for me. We agree that the sermon was slightly dull, but that the singing has improved. I see Grace hovering about but there is no escape from Nora.”

  7. My First Line is from Blind Spot by Dani Pettery:

    Luke crouched behind an orange shipping container, dreading to think what it held.

    Am trying to read all four of these before the mailman shows up with my next review book.

  8. Happy Friday!

    I love this cover and I also like the first lines. I don’t usually read contemporary, but I’ll have to keep this book in mind.

    On my blog this week, I’m featuring Laura Frantz’s “The Frontiersman’s Daughter” as my FLF. I’m also reading Mary Connealy’s “Out of Control.” This FLF is:

    Colorado Territory
    June 23, 1866

    “Last time. This is it. Never again.”

    Have a good weekend and happy reading.

  9. Ahh, Chase. ❤ He is definitely one of the swooniest heroes I've met!

    I'm featuring a non-fiction book on my blog this week–A Light So Lovely (about Madeleine L'Engle)–but I'm also about to dive into Stratagem by Robin Caroll, so here's the first line:

    "According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can't open the door unless her employee uses the key he got in the last room."

    Have a great weekend!
