First Line Friday #30

Friday, July 28, 2017

We are almost to the end of July, which means school starting, and football season! Yeah! From the moment football season ends I'm ready for it to start over, especially college. This week I'm going to feature Jane of Austen: A Novel of Sweet Tea and Sensibility. I am itching to start this but have other books in line first.

About the book:

Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.
But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.
While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas.
In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn't so far away.

First Line:

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. - C.S. Lewis

"So you see," Johnathon explained, "what you've been paying as a lease for your little tea shop -- it's well beneath market value."

I'm ready for college football too! I've also been wanting to read HML's newest release. Enjoy your weekend.

August 1912

She could have been more than she was.

The Reluctant Duchess by Roseanna White

My husband is ready for football. I don't really watch it. :)
I enjoyed reading your first line. I need to add this book to my #TBR.

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE CS Lewis's quote, and I agree!
Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 3 lines) is from His Secret Alaskan Heiress by Belle Calhoune:
" 'Here it is. Fresh out of the oven. One reindeer pizza with feta and spinach,' Sophie announced in a chirpy voice as she set the order down in the middle of the table."

Thanks for the warm welcome! So excited to be a part of First Line Fridays!

Great first line with a fantastic quote from C.S. Lewis. This is on my TBR and I need to read this so badly! :)

My first line is from To The Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden.

Jenny Bennett woke as pebbles clattered against the window.”

Rebecca, Glad to have you!

Becky, I love it too! C.S. Lewis is a favorite!

Trisha, you don't know what you're missing. ;) Enjoy your weekend!

Caryl, another football fan! :) I haven't read that one of Roseanne White's. Happy Weekend!

That is one of my absolute favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis! :) Happy Saturday!

This sounds like a fun one.

London. May 1914. Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. From A Name Unknown by Roseanna White! Loving this book. Can’t get enough Roseanna!

Interesting line, have a great weekend!
