First Line Friday - Valentine's Edition

Friday, February 9, 2018

With Valentine's Day on Wednesday, I thought I'd post my First Line, Valentine's Day Edition today. I mean, who says we have to wait? Not me! 😍😗

I love this cover, and it will be back on my Top Ten Tuesday, cover love.

About the book:

In this fresh and humorous tale, 29-year-old Claire agrees to supervise the renovation of the Paris apartment her parents have inherited. Ignoring her romantic surroundings, Claire is all?business and in a hurry to return to her job, home, and an ?almost dating? relationship with Brian, an associate pastor.
When Adrien, a handsome and flirtatious friend of the family, agrees to help Claire, his spontaneity and "joie de vie" drives her crazy. But in time, even Claire cannot resist the City of Lights? offerings, including the Rodin museum where the sculpture The Kiss raises the questions...who will be the love of her life? And will she ever learn to enjoy the life God has placed right in front of her.

First Line:

Nice girl gone bad. That's me: Claire Le Noyer. When I left my home and job in Seattle, my original plan had been to fly to Florida. Period.

I'm curious if your first line is a Valentine's Day one, or if you're going to wait until next week to post that. Leave me your first line in the comments, then head over to the Hoarding Books Blog to see their first line.

I don't have a Valentine's post this week. Maybe next week :)

I've got the first line from The Saturday Night Supper club up on my blog, and I'm currently reading another great contemporary romance - Paper Hearts by Courtney Walsh. She's onee of my new favourite authors. Here's the first line:

"I can't believe she did this to me again." Abigail Pressman stared at the computer screen in disbelief.

Actually, that kind of counts as a Valentine's Day book, as the story is set in a town called Loves Park and celebrates all things love-ly.

Paper Hearts by Courtney Walsh definitely counts for Valentine’s Day. I loved that book! Enjoy! She’s a favorite author of mine.

Love Siri's books! Have not read this one yet, though. I'm featuring A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith over on the ole blog. Here I will share from Keturah by Lisa T. Bergren. "In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened, his daughters received them all."

Happy early Valentine's Day! I love February :)

Here's a peek at what I'm reading:

Four years to the day after the alien planet arrived above Earth, Sofi's papa had collapsed on the rickety front porch of their buttermilk-yellow farmhouse. --Reclaiming Shilo Snow by Mary Weber

Ooh, this one sounds cute! I'm waiting until next week to go all out for Valentine's Day. :)

I’m featuring “The Saturday Night Supper Club” by Carla Laureano on the blog today, but my first line here will be the book I’m currently reading, “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky.

February 1909
Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!

Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

I've heard so much about this book! I hope to read it some day!

Romantic cover. Very nice. On my blog, I’m featuring Wilted Dandelions by Catherine Ulrich Brakefield. Here I will share the first line of the book I’m currently reading, Rumors and Promises by Kathleen Rouser. Stone Creek, Michigan, 1900. “Sophia Bidershem jerked awake as the train whistle blew.” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Over on my blog, I am featuring Heather B. Moore's novel, Worth the Risk. I am very excited to read that book. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Here, I will post from the novel I am currently reading, A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green. It is an AMAZING story that I am enjoying wholeheartedly. I am just starting chapter 29, so I will share the first two lines from this chapter.

Asylum, Pennsylvania
July 1795

Still damp with morning's dew, the cool earth soiled Vivienne's apron as she knelt in her garden, tugging weeds from between iris and yarrow. Geese soared overhead, soft brown chevrons against a sky of robin's-egg blue.

Cute cover! I confess that I did not even think about posting a Valentine book! I will most definitely have to do that next week. :) Happy Friday!

Interesting start! I'm curious about where the story'll go now.

I need to read Siri's books!

Josie Gallagher gripped the letter from the county manager's office with tight hands. - Her Secret Daughter by Ruth Logan Herne

Happy Friday and Happy Reading! :)

Happy Friday! My first line is from Forward to What Lies Ahead by Chloe S. Flanagan:

"Regina's cellphone buzzed sharply, shattering the silence of her apartment and making her coffee table vibrate."

I hear the title of this book all the time, and I really must read it!

I'm featuring Jennifer Rodewald's Valentine's Day novella on my blog, but at the moment I'm refreshing my memory on Mary Weber's The Evaporation of Sofi Snow:

"The ice-planet arrived in the dusky heat of summer twilight during Earth's Fourth World War."

Have a great weekend.
