First Line Fridays - A Twist of Faith

Friday, July 7, 2017

Happy Friday!!!

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL 4th of July celebrating with friends and family! (And happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!)

Today I am sharing the first line from a book that I AM reading this month. I have it on the schedule and everything. Pepper Basham writes some of the BEST books I have ever read. And I know that this one will be no exception. Book TWO in the series, Charming the Troublemaker will be releasing in November. I can't wait!!! Ok! I am off to read now. Don't forget to comment with your first line before you leave.

PHD was NOT supposed to smell like this. Adelina Roseland dropped a box of research articles onto the floor and stifled a deep breath as the strong aroma of naturally fertilized farmland wafted in from the open window.

If you would like to host First Line Fridays on your blog, contact Carrie on Reading is my SuperPower.


  1. Hello! :) My first line is from the prologue in "The Shell Seekers," by Rosamunde Pilcher.

    "The taxi, an old Rover smelling of old cigarette smoke, trundled along the empty, country road at an unhurried pace."

    Happy Reading!

    1. Oh how intriguing! *scurries to go check this book out*

  2. On my blog this week I'm excited to be teaming up with Carrie Turansky and sharing the first line & cover reveal for her new book "Across the Blue" scheduled to be released early 2018! I wanted to share another great line on the comments, so I've borrowed the book that my 9 year old son is currently reading.
