First Line Friday - A Refuge Assured

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Happy Friday!

Last Friday of April! How in the world did that happen? Trees are FINALLY starting to bud and I got a pack of wildflower seeds planted in my garden. I'm waiting for the inevitable late frost though...It has been in the 70s here the last few days! I'm in SHOCK! But I won't complain. I decided it would be fun to roll my ankle last night while cleaning up our back patio (that's what I get for humming while walking)...So I will be seeing a lot of couch time this weekend. I am already a few chapters into this book and, WOW! SO.GOOD!!! Watch for my review coming soon!

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

A Refuge Assured
Jocelyn Green

Paris, France
August 10, 1792
Propping open the door to her shop, Vivienne Rivard listened to a distant rumble that vibrated the windows and shivered in her chest. A rumble that might have been mistaken for thunder.

Have you read Jocelyn Green's books?

Head over to Hoarding Books to link up with your own FLF post! (Please keep it family 
friendly...Or note otherwise in the link up)


  1. “Thank you, Hope Early, for joining us and sharing all of your tips for spring cleaning.
    UNINVITED CORPSE by Debra Sennefelder

    1. Ok....more than one question pops to mind with that!

  2. Loved reading this book from Jocelyn Green! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
    Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Becky Wade's Falling for You. I'll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed "Amongst the Roses" by Meghan M. Gorecki
    "Papa's Home!" A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant's spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist."

  3. Happy Friday! Was it a gun shot??😀

    My FLF comes from a book I’m going to be reading shortly, The Good Daughter by Diane Chamberlain…….

    No one wanted to work with the man in the wheelchair . “There’s something strange about that guy,” one of my fellow students warned me in the hall outside the PT ward. “If they try to assign you to him, say no.”

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!📚😀

    1. Well this book is set in Revolutionary France hehe!

  4. I love this time of the year. :) And yes, this is another book that I need to Happy Friday!

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton's Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:

    "As a vicar's daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so."

  6. I actually can't remember if I've read anything by Jocelyn Green. I'd have to check on Goodreads. I've heard good things about her writing, so I hope you enjoy this one.

    Over on my blog I'm sharing from Where Hope Begins by Catherine West ... which I finished about four hours after starting it.

    I'm now reading A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden. Here's the first line of the Prologue:

    "You and your brother are to go to the music room, close the door, and don't come out until I say you can."

    Have a great weekend!

  7. On my blog, I am featuring Mail-Order Revenge by Angela K. Couch. Here I will share the first line of chapter five from the book I'm currently reading, His Substitute Wife by Dorothy Clark. "'Thank you.' Blake looked up and snagged Audrey's gaze with his. 'It feels odd, having you pour my coffee.'" Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  8. It hit 81 today in Omaha, after having snowed a bit last week. I love the snow and I miss it terribly, because we did not have much this season and I am from MN, so to say that I like snow is an understatement! I'm also not much of a green thumb, but I let Eleanor pick out random packets of seeds at the nursery the other day. We threw them all in a big pot and I guess we will just see who makes it, a survival of the fittest for flowers. Happy Friday!

  9. My first lines come from Shutdown Player by Jami Davenport.

    “Praying had never done Stephanie Clarke any good, but she did it anyway.”

    I’m featuring lines from Victoria Danann’s Witch Wants Forever on my blog if you’d like to stop by.

  10. I'm working on my review of A Refuge Assured :D

    I’m sharing from my current read, The Backcountry Brides Romance Collection from Barbour Books, on my blog today. So here is the first line from the prologue of a book I plan to read soon, The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron:

    “Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”

    Have a great weekend!
