First Line Fridays (Giveaway + Sneak Peek) - 3/17/17 - Just the Way You Are


Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

While the story I am going to share with you today, isn't Irish...I do have Irish heritage that I am so very proud of! (Did you remember to wear green today?) Anyhoo...On to today's First Line. And make sure you enter the GIVEAWAY mentioned below too!


"One step into the massive, glass-walled waiting area was all it took. In a cataclysmic chain of events, someone bumped into Eisley Barrett, sending her purse and all its contents skittering across the glossy floor of Heathrow International Airport. Just as she regained her balance, her heel caught on her purse strap, forcing her off-kilter."

OK, OK! I know...That is way more than just the first line, but trust me when I say I could just keep reading...and reading...In fact, I may just do that after I post this.

You REALLY don't want to miss out on this fantabulous book! (*PSST* I have rated it 6 stars..."Heaven help me you taste like Christmas" status right there.) Pepper has graciously donated an eBook for me to give away to ONE of my amazing readers! Jump over to her interview HERE to enter to win! Just make sure you comment with your First Line before you leave.

ALSO, Pepper is starting a new series tomorrow. Here is your VERY FIRST sneak peek! I will warn you...You will want to bring your fan...and fainting couch along...Because swooning will be inevitable! 


Pepper also recently released an incredibly charming novella! You can find Second Impressions in the Love at First Laugh novella collection for only $0.99 on Amazon!

I am currently reading The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney.
First line says "Because the three Plumbs had agreed ton the phone the previous evening that they should not drink in front of their brother Leo, they were all- unbeknownst to one another- sitting in separate bars in and around Grand Central, savoring a furtive cocktail before lunch."

I loved the irony in that statement and it hooked me in!

Awww! I LOVE Pepper's books & can't wait to read Just the Way You Are!!!! I tried a new author whom Carrie Pagels recommended because she needs reviews, and I am really enjoying it! My first line is: "Young lady, my marital status is none of your concern." from Secrets & Charades by Cindy Ervin Huff

Oops! I have Carrie on my mind because it's her new website launch today. It was Elaine Cooper who recommended it.

So, I'm reading Truman Capote's book Breakfast at Tiffany's and it's first line is: I am always drawn back to place where I have lived, the houses and their neighborhoods.
