Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
A Midnight Dance by Joanna Davidson Politano.
All theater romances are tragedies. Ella Blythe knows this. Still, she cannot help but hope her own story may turn out different than most–and certainly different than the tragic story of the Ghost of Craven Street Theater. Yet as she struggles to maintain her tenuous place in the ever-shrinking ballet company, win the attentions of principal dancer Philippe, and avoid company flirt Jack, Ella cannot deny the uncanny feeling that her life is mirroring that of the dead ballerina.
Is she dancing ever closer to the edge of her own tragic end? Or will the secrets that are about to come to light offer release from the past?
Mystery and romance make the perfect dance partners in this evocative story from fan-favorite Joanna Davidson Politano.
[Graphic Text]: Covent Gardent, London 1833 – He was so very blue.
Now it’s your turn. Pull out the book beside you and tell us the first line.

A Midnight Dance was a beautiful story! I’m currently reading The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper Basham and I just started Chapter 9: “Her father had wept when he learned of the engagement.”
My First Line Friday post featured The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery by Amanda Cox: http://gracetogrowblog.com/secret-keepers-old-depot-grocery/.
I’m looking forward to reading Mistletoe Countess! Hope you enjoy it! Happy Reading!
A Midnight Dance was so very good!
My first line is from another fantastic book Undercurrent of Secrets by Rachel Scott McDaniel:
September. Louisville, Kentucky
Some engagements end In happily ever afters, and some just end…on social media.
I loved Undercurrent of Secrets, too! They’ve been some good books released lately. Happy Reading!
I have not read this one. Have a great weekend!
Thanks! You, too!
