First Like Fridays - 2/3/17 - Shine Like the Dawn


Happy Friday!!!

After a little break from blogging and reviewing, it is nice to be back in full swing this week. Today my first line comes from a book that I have been eagerly waiting to read. It releases a little later this month, so be sure to pre-order your copy today!


"August 22, 1899
Sunlight blinked off the rippling surface of Tumbledon Lake and into Margaret Lounsbury's eyes."


Post your first line below and head over to see what First Lines my lovely friends have today!

  2. Any story set in Edwardian England is going to be good--such as Downton Abbey--even though it is in the post-Edwardian era. :) I will have to check this book out.

    My first line for the week is:

    The Newcomer
    by Suzanne Woods Fisher

    Philadelphia
    October 15, 1737

    "Bairn was suffocating. Not literally, mayhap, but as close as a man could get."

    Happy reading and happy Friday!

  3. Near Medicine Bow, Wyoming 1892

    The squeal of the train wheels jerked Essie Vanderfair's attention from the doodles and half-formed thoughts scribbled inside her notebook to the window beside her.

  4. My first line is: " "...for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord." The words grabbed the man by the throat." (I had to include that 2nd line!) from Moving Target by Lynette Eason

  5. Yay, I just have to wait a couple more weeks to read that one!
    Finished reading A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander

    Nashville, Tennessee
    January 12, 1871
    Rebekah Carrington stood shivering across the street from her childhood home, satchel heavy in hand, cloak dusted with snow.

  6. From "The Lost Heiress" by Roseanna M. White:

    Tempation sat before her, compelling as the sea.

  7. My first line comes from Tosca Lee's new book The Firstborn.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.
