First Line Friday # 9

Friday, March 3, 2017

 It's Friday, which means it's time for first line Friday. So grab the closest book and leave it in the comments. Happy Friday and happy reading!

                                                     About the book:
From the minute Grace Evangeline throws her sweet tea in Devin Bressard’s face, their battle of wits and cross-purposes overtakes their lives. Sassy “angelic” Grace Evangeline will stop at nothing to see her romance novel produced for Broadway. Devin Bressard knows all about the commercial success of Ms. Evangeline’s “novels”—as far from his literary, nerve-striking plays as anything could be. Grace intends to pull his head out of the rarefied air long enough to make her point, even if it involves stalking him and infiltrating his friends and colleagues. It’s research, after all. Devin knows she’s trouble, but who would guess the spokesperson for strength and virtue would be a calamity vortex? He mounts a fierce resistance, but when he’s forced to work with Grace, his profession and sanity aren’t the only things at risk. Collapsing walls on both sides bring a detente that could shatter their bond—or resound through more lives than their own.

First Line:

Devin Bressard scarcely blinked when Grace tossed her sweet tea in his face.

Anna's Crossing
by Suzanne Woods Fisher

And the fist line is...

April 15th, 1737

"It's a hard crossing, they'd been warned. Eight weeks in a wooden tub with no guarantee they'd ever get there."

Happy reading and happy Friday!

I'm interested in reading Told You So. My first line is: “Preston Tyler lowered his feet from the deck railing & leaned forward as his gaze followed the Jeep pulling up next to the Fontaines’ cabin across the lake.” From Presumed Dead by Angela Ruth Strong

Starting with tea. ;) How interesting!

A wooden tub! Lol

I have Presumed Dead but haven't started it. Soon.

When I wrote it yesterday it made me giggle.

I've heard a lot about this book. Haven't read it yet.

Elyse McCord guided her Jeep down the gravel road for another slow pass.
Christine Lynxwiler's Cowgirl at Heart.
I'm reading this for my local book club.

Hi Janet. Sounds good! I'm hoping to get to this one soon. Happy weekend!

Ha! I love that first line. It immediately tells me something about both the tosser and the drenched.

My first line is from For Love Or Loyalty by Jennifer Hudson Taylor:

A feeling of foreboding crawled over Malcolm MacGregor like a colony of insects picking at his skin.

Hi Kathleen! Glad you were able to comment.

I adore that book!
