About the Book

Thieves did not stop for a spot of tea — as a rule, they robbed and ran.

Brilliant first line! And quite a brilliant story. I’m a little more than 50% complete with this story and I am LOVING every beautiful second! I already highly, highly recommend this novel, but check back on Saturday for my full review!

  1. Paige Cordell felt as if she had regressed back to the awkward, frizzy-haired bookworm who’d left Sage Creek, Texas, fourteen years ago. With no intention of every returning.

    1. Thank you for sharing. I’m pretty sure that people from high school would wonder if I’ve changed at all. I’m exactly like I was then — a nerdy, book loving girl in jeans and a tee! But I do have new wrinkles! LOL!

  2. LOL That is a hilarious beginning and definitely has me curious.

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line of Marisol – Spanish Rose by Elva Cobb Martin, so here I’ll share one of my favorite lines from the same book:

    Maybe he should be guarding his heart from her, protecting himself from another loss, but he’d already given too much of himself to her. His heart was no longer his to guard.

  3. I’m sure you’re going to love it right through the end! I devoured this one!!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Deadly Deceit by Natalie Walters but I’m currently reading How the Light Gets In by Jolina Petersheim so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (9) here: “Elam Albrecht didn’t have many needs.” Hope you have a great weekend! Happy reading 🙂

      1. I know exactly how you feel! That’s also how I felt about The Bright Unknown by Elizabeth Byler Younts. It won’t be posting on my blog until next month because of a tour but it’s on my Goodreads now

  4. My first lines are from Hope’s Highest Mountain by Misty Beller:
    My Darling Rachel,
    You were everything to me. You still are. Don’t ever forget that.

  5. On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Because of You by Becky Wade, however I finished it last night and am now reading Stitched in Time by Suzanne Woods Fisher. I’ll share the first line of that book here. “It took a lot to shock Luke Schrock.”

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Wyatt: The Montana Marshalls” by Susan May Warren:

    “Usually Wyatt, goalie for the Minnesota Blue Ox NHL team, could shrug off his mistakes.”
