First Line Fridays - Secrets of Sloane House


Happy Friday!

I am happy to announce that First Line Fridays is now hosted by the Hoarding Book Blog. So after you post your first line here, hop over there to check out every one else's First Line post...AND enter the GIVEAWAY!

This book and I were truly meant to be together. I borrowed this from the library on my kindle for my trip to CFRR. Because like any good book addict, I had ridiculously high expectations and planned on reading 5 books over the weekend...I finished 1...I think. Anyhoo, I got to the event and saw Secrets of Sloane House in my bag and was SO excited. I even was able to have Shelley SIGN it! Eeeep! Be still my heart. 


Chicago
August, 1893
As circumspectly as she could, Rosalind Perry smoothed her dark gray skirts before meeting the wide, assessing gaze of Douglas Sloane, the twenty-four-year-old son and heir of the Sloane estate. 


Now it's your turn! Post your first line below and hop over to Hoarding Books to join in more First Line fun!

  1. Hmm. Sounds intimidating!

    I'm featuring the first line from Melissa Tagg's "All This Time" on my blog this week. I can't believe the Walker Family series is finished! 😭 But here, I'm going to share the first line from Chapter 1 of Toni Shiloh's new release, Returning Home:

    Jo Ellen Baker slammed the tailgate of her pickup shut.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Ooh this sounds like a neat read!

    I'm featuring "All This Time" by Melissa Tagg on the blog today, but for here, I'll share my first line from Hometown Girl by Courtney Walsh. It's one of the three books I'm currently reading and I'm loving it so far.

    "Beth Whitaker hated flowers."

    Happy Weekend!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Magnolia Storms by Janet Ferguson:
    “Fear and loss snaked around Magnolia Marovich’s heart like they always did when she studied the satellite images on the three computer screens in front of her. Not again.
