First Line Fridays - A Reluctant Bride

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Happy Friday!

Oh, my lands! These authors! They have no sympathy for my poor nerves. Jody Hedlund's newest novel has my heart in a huge tangled knot. I've almost finished and it is so SO good!!!!

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

A Reluctant Bride
Jody Hedlund

London, England
May 1862
"Hang on a little longer, my lamb."

  1. It was our last day in Paris.
    My husband (and yes, I was really loving that word – a lot) Derek and I had breakfast on the private terrace of the hotel suite, enjoying the spectacular view of the city that was spread out before us.
    THE BOOK SUPREMACY by Kate Carlisle

  2. I loved this story! I'm also featuring this fantastic book this week. Great minds...
    Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund. Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 4 of the same book.
    "Mercy stood in the long line of tenants waiting for a turn at the water spigot at the back of the building."

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Summer by the Tides by Denise Hunter: I am currently on chapter 4, so I will share a line from there.

    "The sun was almost overhead by the time Connor has a moment to breathe."

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🤗💚📚

  4. I just saw this on Amazon...looks great! Happy reading Rachel!

  5. YAY for Jody! I'm currently reading The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze... "With a furtive pat, Gemma Lyfeld blotted her nerve-damp palms on her white muslin gown."

  6. Great minds think alike ;)
    Today on my blog I featured A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund which I just finished last night. My next read is going to be Where Hope Begins by Catherine West so I'll share that first line here: "My husband is leaving me." I think I'm in for an intense read! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some quality reading time :)

  7. I need to read this one! I'm sharing from Kelly Irvin's Through the Autumn Air on my blog today. Here is the second sentence:

    "Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands."

    Happy Friday!

  8. I got this book from NetGalley. Can’t wait to read it. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "When Love Blossoms: Book 2 of the Kindred Lake Series" by Elaine Stock:

    "Kierra Madden grasped the phone tighter in both disbelief and gratitude."

  10. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner: "Four years ago, on my thirtieth birthday, I had two very important realizations."

  11. More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer:
    May- 1896- Honey Grove, Texas
    “The council has denied your appeal, Miss Kemp.” Mayor Longfellow delivered the blow with a finality that threatened to buckle Abigail’s knees.

    Jody’s book will be next up after I finish The Number of Love by Roseanna White.
