  1. Well of course, now I want to know why she did come. πŸ˜‰
    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from To Steal a Heart by Jen Turano.
    Here’s the first line from my current read, The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky:

  2. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line to the Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano
    β€œIt always came to this, didn’t it? Amid the glittering swirl of music and gowns, I looked up into the handsome face of Lord Cumberland and forced a smile as if nothing at all were about to happen.”

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Into the Darkness” by Margaret Daley:

    “Hot, humid – no, make that wet – air clung to her like a second skin.”

  4. My first line is from an exceptional book: The Promised Land by Elizabeth Musser:
    β€œI have spent twenty years carefully stitching my family’s life together, so when it suddenly starts to unravel I find myself in a tangled knot of anxiety.”
