Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring

Shadows of Swanford Abbey by Julie Klassen.

In pursuit of an author who could help get her brother published, Rebecca Lane stays at Swanford Abbey, a grand hotel rumored to be haunted. It is there she encounters Sir Frederick–the man who broke her heart. When a mysterious death occurs, Rebecca is one of the suspects, and Frederick is torn between his feelings for her and his search for the truth.

From Goodreads

[Graphic Text]: March 1820, Worcestershire, England — Miss Rebecca Lane quaked at the thought of returning to Swanford after more than a year’s absence, even though her heart had never really left.

Now it’s your turn. Pull out the book beside you and tell us the first line.
