  1. That was SUCH a good book!

    I've got the first line from "Will Not See" by Chautona Havig over on my blog today. Since it's the second book in the 'Sight Unseen' series, I thought I would share the first line (or two) from the first book in the series, "None So Blind", here:

    "Her arm stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably."

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I want to read this so bad! Love Jody Hedlund!

    I'm featuring "A Name Unknown" by Roseanna M. White on the blog today, but the closest book I have to me right now is "The Writing Desk" by Rachel Hauck.

    "This should by night of triumph. To be queen of her world. An acclaimed, best-selling, award-winning author with the literati bowing at her feet."

  3. I also really enjoyed reading Newton & Polly! Great book!

  4. Hmm... well, this weekend I'm reading one of my favorite authors, if that counts. ;) Kim Vogel Sawyer's "Bringing Maggie Home." I'm a little over halfway and it's such a GREAT read! Here's the first line:
    Mid-July 1943
    "Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. 'Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'"

  5. She hated this time of night.
    Plain Retribution by Dana R. Lynn

  6. I loved Newton and Polly. Jody is a favorite author. My first line:

    Conner O'Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathered on the landing.
    From The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman

  7. Newton and Polly is in my TBR.

    Huge hands ripped at Cole Sanders’ shirt and yanked him away from Audrey Vaughn’s embrace. Tackling the Fields by Janet Ferguson

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. "Cameron Cruz, quarterback for a Denver Storm, stared off the back deck of his recently acquired home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming." - Second String by Taylor Hart

  9. "Warm August sunshine streamed through the giant French windows into the lofty, old law school classroom." ~ Unmasked by Jim Anderson
    (posted by Marie Layman)

  10. I definitely want to read Newton and Polly. I love Hedlund novels!

    I'm currently in the middle of reading Rule of Law by Randy Singer. It's not typically a genre (military/legal) I read, but it's so engaging. Here's the first line:

    "They descended like vultures from the C-17 transport plane, silhouettes against a quarter moon in a tar-black sky."

  11. I've loved your "Favorite Line Friday" posts!
    I have a favorite last line, well 2 lines really, from Heidi Chiavaroli's "Freedom's Ring"
    My past has been wiped clean by grace. And because of that, I could finally claim strength.

  12. What a beautiful quote from Newton & Polly. I love it. Can't wait to read this book and others by Jody Hedlund.
