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.
[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.
First Line Friday is hosted by Reading is my Super Power.

Happy Saturday! 🙂 Today I’m reading A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck: “The night was moonless, the color of black ink, with not one star twinkling from the heavens.” My post this week featured As Dawn Breaks by Kate Breslin: http://gracetogrowblog.com/as-dawn-breaks-kate-breslin/
I hope you enjoyed A Royal Christmas Wedding! Thank you for sharing! 😃
I’m waiting for Swanford Abbey to arrive. Now I hear it’s been delayed!
My first line comes from Proposing Mischief by Regina Jennings
“When I told Pa I wanted to go to town, I didn’t mean the feed store.”
My paperback copy hasn’t arrived yet either, but the ebook is tiding me over 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading Regina’s book!
My first line comes from Elinor by Shannon McNear.
“Three years. Three long years. But soon, please God, he would hold his daughter and granddaughter again.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend!
