Loved The Red Canary!
My first line is from an exceptional book: The Promised Land by Elizabeth Musser:
“I 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.”
How is The Promised Land? I keep hearing wonderful things. Enjoy your weekend!
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.”
What a great first line! Happy Friday!
Happy Friday! 😊
I’m sharing from All is Mary and Bright by Kasey Stockton on my blog:https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/11/13/first-line-friday-161/. I’m currently reading The Cul-de-sac War by Melissa Ferguson. I’m just starting chapter 4 so I’ll share from there.
“Chip tried really, really hard to keep a smile from playing on his lips as Bree stomped out of the sleet and onto his concrete porch in tall black galoshes.”
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂❤📚
What a fun line! That looks like a good book!
Over on my blog I am sharing the first line to the Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano
“It 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.”
Have a happy weekend!
I keep hearing such good things about The Love Note! Love that fist line.
