Welcome to First Line Friday!

Today I’m featuring

Undercurrent of Secrets by Rachel Scott McDaniel.

Two women, a century apart, are bound by a haunting secret aboard a legendary steamboat.

Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

As wedding coordinator for the 100-year-old steamboat The Belle of Louisville, Devyn Asbury takes pride in seeing others’ dreams come true, even though her engagement had sunk like a diamond ring to the bottom of the Ohio River. When the Belle becomes a finalist in the Timeless Wedding Venue contest, Devyn endeavors to secure the prestigious title with hopes to reclaim some of her professional dreams. What she hadn’t planned on was Chase Jones showing up with a mysterious photo from the 1920s.

A century earlier, Hattie Louis is as untamable as the rivers that raised her. As the adopted daughter of a steamboat captain, her duties range from the entertainment to cook. When strange incidents occur aboard the boat, Hattie’s determined to discover the truth. Even if that means getting under First Mate Jack Marshall’s handsome skin.

From Goodreads

[Graphic Text]: September – Louisville, Kentucky – Some engagements end in happily ever afters, and some just end … on social media. – Rachel Scott McDaniel, Undercurrent of Secrets.

  1. Hi Danielle!
    I just loved Undercurrent of Secrets and just finalized my review!

    My first line is from a book coming out on the 31st
    Carved in Stone by Elizabeth Camden:
    April 1900. New York City
    How could a man buy a new suit with a dizen eggs?

  2. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading Secrets in the Mist by Morgan L. Busse. This is a new-to-me author and genre. So far, it’s pretty engaging. I’m just beginning chapter 13 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Theo spent the month collecting everything he could on the subject.”
    Hope you have an excellent weekend!
