First Line Fridays - A Cowboy for Christmas


Happy Friday!

I know, I know...I only JUST got my fall decor out and I am already posting about Christmas books! Well, I figured I needed to give you ideas for your own Christmas reading right? Hehe! There is no doubt that Christmas is my favorite HOLIDAY! This is one of the books that I received at CFRR this year. And Ruthy is such a sweetheart! I adore her! And I managed to get a picture with her this year (and not loose the photo haha)!


Ellensburgh, Washington
November 1889
"Will we have food, Mama?" The hope in Beth's voice did more than stir June Harper's resolve as she and two friends hurried west on the Seattle road. It pushed her to make a decision she'd been putting off for weeks.

Yes, it is too early to think about Christmas! We're only just coming out of winter, and Christmas is the start of summer ... well, at least it is here in New Zealand.

I'm sharing from Magnolia Storms by Janet Ferguson over on my blog today. Next on my to-read pile is Unblemished by Sara Ella. It's different to what I usually read, but it's got a great first line:

This is all my fault.
She'll lose her soul because of me.

From Lisa See’s The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane (not labeled as Christian fiction but it’s the closest book to me other than my Bible in which the first line is “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”.)

“No coincidence, no story,” my a-ma recites, and that seems to settle everything, as it usually does, after First Brother finishes telling us about the dream he had last night.

Ah no! Not Christmas already! Where did the year go?

I’m featuring Nicole Deese’s new book, “A New Shade of Summer” on my blog this week, but I’ve FINALLY managed to get around to reading Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”, and I almost didn’t even want to put it down to do the First Line Friday rounds! But I’ve forced myself to share the first line:

“Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

My first line is going to be the first paragraph because It is short! It’s from These Healing Hills by Ann Gabhart. And her writing has captured me again!
Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared. She’d studied the Frontier Nursing information until she almost knew it by heart. That should have given her a glimpse into this place.

There are sooo many good quotes to glean from this book and I’m only on page 53!

On my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from a book I just finished. The Case of the Clobbered Cad. It was a fun story to read.
I’ll share here the first line from a book my son is currently reading.
Tree Tall and the Whiteskins by Shirlee Evans
“Tree Tall crept through the high dew-damp grass along the creek bank. It was early. The sun was not yet over the hill.”

My first line on my blog is from Colleen Coble. But I grabbed a book beside me for here.
"He'd found her." by The Texan's Courtship Lessons by Noelle Marchand. My mom gave this book to me and I haven't read it yet.

Happy Friday!!

My first line is from For Such a Moment by Marie Wells Coutu:

“Ellen Nielson scanned the large office, seeking a secret corner where she could escape.”

Great book! Read it last Christmas. Happy Friday!

Janet W. Ferguson said...

Oh hey! I need to go check it out!!

My quote comes from The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachel Anderson. This is book #3 in series. I highly recommend all three novels!

"'How dreadful it would be to live on one's own permanently,' Lady Harriet Cavendish said to no one in particular as she walked through a thick grove of pines in Askern, Yorkshire."

A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
October 15, 1940
Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.
