First Line Fridays - 4/21/17 - Behind the Scenes


Happy Friday!

Do you have any plans for the weekend? We decided to PAINT our kitchen! It is sort of in the halfway stage right now. I will hopefully have pictures of the final product by next week! Anyhoo...My First Line this week comes from one of my favorite authors EVER! Jen Turano delivers stories that have unique and quite humourous heroines. Miss Permilia Griswold is no exception. In fact, she may be my favorite Turano character to date. Although I am only about halfway through the book right now (are you seeing a trend here?). Be looking for my review NEXT Saturday! 


March 1883 - New York City
Pressing her nose against the glass of the carriage window, Miss Permilia Griswold felt her stomach begin to churn as she took note of the throngs of people lining Fifth Avenue.

  1. Good morning. Have fun painting your kitchen! My first line is from Chapter 3 of, "Wildfire at Midnight," by Mary Stewart. I'm moving around a bit.

    "Yes, there it was, as large as life, the arrogant black signature in the visitor's book: Nicholas Drury, London, May 29th, 1953."

    Happy Reading!

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is: “For a moment she couldn’t breathe, and then the barest whisper passed her lips – half spontaneous praise half simple awe. ‘Oh my… I’ve found Paradise!’ ” From Spring Raine by Delia Latham

  4. Oops! I didn't know you were featuring this book. I only did it so I could start my giveaway on the extra copy I received this week.
    Hope you get your kitchen painted and have a great weekend.

  5. This was one of the books I finished this week. :) It was quite humorous. I haven't read the novella yet, though.

    1. OH YOU NEED TO READ IT!!!! It sets up the feel and idea for the whole series. PLUS you meet the leading ladies in it and get a taste of their character. (That whole ice skates haggling thing? That scene is in the novella)

  8. I love the cover of this book!

    I'll be reviewing The Patriot & The Loyalist by Angela K. Couch, this Monday on my blog, so I'll share the first line from that book:

    South Carolina, November 1780
    Daniel Reid slowed his horse and sucked air into his lungs as he reined to the road’s grassy edge.
