About the Book

It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one’s existence. 

Isn’t that one of the best first lines ever?! It breaks the reader’s heart!

Underestimating Miss Cecilia is a fantastic novel. I think it is Carolyn’s best book yet. Check back on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, for my review, plus a #giveaway!

    That IS a great first line! It reminds me of having unrequited crushes in high school. 🙂

    I’m currently reading Andrew by Jennifer Beckstrand and LOVING IT! I loved the first line of chapter three so I’ll share that one. ” Alfie Benaiah Petersheim, get that cat off my table!”

    I hope you have a good weekend for reading!

    I’m also sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecila on my blog today – it seems to be a popular choice!

    I’m currently reading Fatal Strike by DiAnn Mills. Here’s the first line:

    Special Agent Leah Riesel scanned the headlines on her phone.

    That’s a little underwhelming, but the first chapter includes a shoot-out in a hostage situation, so it ramps up the action quickly.

    Happy reading!

    Can’t wait to see your full review!

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I’m currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

    That is a wonderful first line. Since I’m sharing from chapter 1 of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham on my blog today, here is the first line from the prologue:

    “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellowed papers closer and pressed her lips to them.”

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

    I love Carolyn’s books! 🙂 I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.

    My first line is from The Crossing of Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman
    Natchez Under-the-Hill on the Mississippi River, August 1792
    Caleb O’Shea jerked awake to utter stillness.

    Great series!

    Loved Miss Cecy. Am currently reading The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken.
