  1. Great line! And I loooooooved that book!

    I've got the first line from "Chasing Secrets" by Lynette Eason on the blog today, but I've just finished reading "A Rose So Fair" by Myra Johnson, so I'm going to share the first line from that here:

    "Now just you hold it right there, mister." Rose Linwood sighted her unwelcome visitor down the length of Grandpa's trusty Winchester.

    She's a spunky one!

    1. Delighted! You made me smile + giggle + blush today. ;)

  2. What a fantastic first line! Definitely has a gripping intro. Can't wait to read this for myself soon! :)

    I'm featuring "Healing Love" by Jennifer Slattery on my blog today, but I'm currently reading "A Name Unknown" by Roseanna M. White.

    Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune: "Finn O'Rourke paced back and forth in terminal 27A of the Anchorage airport."

  4. Happy Friday, Rachel! I love Kristy Cambron! This one is on my wish list!

    Since I'll be finishing Pepper Basham's The Thorn Healer before lunch, I'm sharing the first line from my current Chapter 22: "I hate leaving you like this." Catherine stilled her movements from packing her trunk, her coral walking suit an elegant fit on her delicate frame. "Not when David and Alexander could help tend the sickness."

  5. Thanks for including The Illusionist's Apprentice on your website, Rachel! It's been such a fun opportunity to connect the reader friends, and to share my <3 for Wren's (and Houdini's) story! Sending hugs to all!
