The last thing a bride needs to fret over on her wedding day is whether the ceremony will take place.

This was SUCH a good book! If you read WWII era books...You will fall in love with this one!

  1. Love Kristy Cambron! I've got The Lost Castle sitting on my table and calling my name.

    Here's the first line from a book I hope to get to this weekend:

    FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson had survived missions in the Middle East, been detained in Iran, escaped an ISIS death trap, and still walked and talked.

  3. I loved this book so much. Actually, both books in this series are AMAZING!

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am showcasing Naomi Rawlings's novel Love's Bright Tomorrow. Here I will share the first line from the novel I am currently reading, Mary and Bright by Shannon Graupman.

    "Mary Bradford's heart raced as she sat on the edge of her king sized bed -- her gaze affixed on the single white sheet of paper resting on the nightstand."

  4. This was a great novel, although I have to admit I preferred the WWII story to the modern story.

    I'm sharing the first line from Aint Misbehaving by Marji Laine on my blog. I'm currently reading My Sister's Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould (which is also a dual timeline story).

    It's the middle book in a trilogy and I really shouldn't have read the third book first, because it did ruin some of the big-picture suspense. Here's the first line:

    The cry for help came as I was coasting toward the bicycle rack at the far end of the story.

  6. I've seen this cover before, and I thought the story-line looked really good. I will have to add it to my Amazon wish list, because I love historical fiction. :) Happy Friday!

  8. Happy Friday! (What's left!) My first lines (sorry, but I included the 2nd) is from These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart:

    "Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared."

  9. Loved this one. And Lost Castle is coming up soon on my TBR!

    I have the first line from Tamara Leigh's latest release, The Awakening, on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from my current read, 'Weaver's Needle' by Robin Caroll:

    "Unless you get one of those miracles they're always talking about in church, I don't see how you'll be able to keep the business open into spring."

    Have a great weekend. :-)

  10. I'm falling back in love with World War II books :)

    I'm sharing the first line from Susie Finkbeiner's A Trail of Crumbs on my blog, but here is the first line from the novel that follows, A Song of Home:

    "It was no surprise to me that I'd lost track of time."

  11. i looooove those books! My current first line is from Cathy Gohlke's Until We Find Home: "Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres."
