First Line Friday #26

Friday, June 30, 2017

WOW! It's the last Friday of June! How did that happen?? It seems like just yesterday we started June, and 4th of July is Tuesday!!!

Today I am featuring High as the Heavens by Katie Breslin. I just received this book for review and am itching to start it, but I'm waiting until I finish one. The temptation is real folks! 😇

About the book:

In 1917, Evelyn Marche is just one of many women who has been widowed by the war. A British nurse trapped in German-occupied Brussels, she spends her days working at a hospital and her nights as a waitress in her aunt and uncle's café. Eve also has a carefully guarded secret keeping her in constant danger: She's a spy working for a Belgian resistance group in league with the British Secret Service.
When a British plane crashes in Brussels Park, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to discover she recognizes the badly injured pilot. British RFC Captain Simon Forrester is now a prisoner of war, and Eve knows he could be shot as a spy at any time. She risks her own life to hide him from the Germans, but as the danger mounts and the secrets between them grow, their chance of survival looks grim. And even if they do make it out alive, the truth of what lies between them may be more than any love can overcome.

First Line:

Brussels 1917

Like manna from heaven, the words fell from the sky. Evelyn Marche snatched at one of the blue leaflets fluttering down outside the Royal Palace and glanced at the message, though she already knew it by heart.

I really enjoyed reading High As The Heavens!

I'm not usually a big WWII fiction fan, but this sounds too good to pass up! Thanks! :)

Today I'm sharing the first line from "A Match Made in Alaska" over on my blog, but the first line I'm sharing here is from a book I recently finished, "Against the Tide" by Elizabeth Camden:

Boston, 1876
Lydia was embarrassed to wear a damp dress on the first day of school, but it rained last night while her clothes were strung across the boat's rigging to dry.

I can't wait to read and review this one as well!

Thank you, Trisha!

Thank you, Rebecca! I hope you enjoy the story!

I have the first line from Over Maya Dead Body on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from another great read about to release, Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”:

“Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”
