First Line Fridays - Week Three

It's Friday!!! Yay! I don't know about you, but I am READY for the weekend! 

I am looking forward to spending some time in my garden and with my nose in a book. (By the way if anyone has any tips for keeping cats out of my garden, I will be forever grateful!) Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

If this is your first time joining in...I have teamed up with Carrie over on Reading is my SuperPower for a little Friday fun! All you need to do is post the first line of the book nearest to you!

Today, my first line comes from Tracie Peterson's book Steadfast Heart first book in the Brides of Seattle series. This is a book that is on my list to read this year as part of my reading challenge. Steadfast Heart fills the slot of reading a book set in my home state. 


Seattle, WashingtonMarch 1888 - Lenore Fulcher swept into her father's offices, feeling like a flower in full bloom.

I can not WAIT to read this one! How about you? What is your first line this week?

After you post your line here, head over and visit Carrie on Reading is my Superpower to join in more First Line Friday fun! (And a GIVEAWAY!!!)

  1. First line for this week from Mail-Order Bride novella collection. This story is by Janice Thompson:

    "Belinda, I don't want to hurt your feelings. Truly. But what in the world has possessed you? A marriage broker? Do you really think you're....you're..."

    There are 9 different authors in this and this story is hilarious! I laughed so much through it :-) And mail-order bride stories are among my favorite theme! :-)

    I love that you and Carrie collaborate the first line Friday's, it's so much fun to see everyone's answers. And maybe add a book or two to my list!

  3. Sleepless nights had become all too common over the past few months for Lainey DeHan, and tonight was no exception.

    My first line for Carrie's was different. I posted at a different time and was in a different room so the book nearest was different!

  4. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the expectation of pleasure is generally preferred to its eventual attainment-the attainment being marred, at its close, by the resumption of quotidian routine made onerous by the very diversions so lately enjoyed.
