First Line Friday

A Good Day to Buy

It’s FRIDAY which means I get to share a great line once a week with your from a book I am reading. I found this to be an exciting and entertaining way to find new authors, books and bloggers. So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

This Weeks First Line Friday Brought to You By

A Good Day to Buy

A Sarah W. Garage Sale Mystery

by Sherry Harris

This week's line is:

“Love fades. People change. It’s happened to me.”

Who would have thought that a mystery that was around garage and yard sales would be so delightful? I wouldn’t have thought this until I was able to read A Good Day to Buy, it is a fun and swift mystery that reads just the way a mystery should, keeping the reader on their toes and filling the story with great characters.  If you click the link above to my review you can enter for the chance to win a copy of the book!

 

Now it's Your Turn

Open the book nearest you and post the first line of the first chapter in the comments below, I would love to see into the book you are reading.

    Sounds good!

    I have the first line of Tosca Lee’s ‘Firstborn’ on my blog today, but here I’m going to share the first line of “Wings of the Wind” by Connilyn Cossette:

    “Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, I’d never felt more alone.”

    On my page I’m sharing the first line from Such a Hope by Sondra Kraak. However, here I’m going to share the first line of book on my TBR stack; “The Miracle of the Seventh-day Ox” by Bradley Booth: “Nickolia Panchuk stared at the four walls of the jail cell around him. The cold gray concrete made him feel as if he were in a tomb–cold and frightened and alone.”

    This sounds like another great mystery. 🙂 Have you seen the Garage Sale mystery movies on the Hallmark Mystery Channel starring Lori Loughlin? Excellent films. 🙂

    Sounds like a fun read! Last night was my brother’s college graduation, so while I was waiting for the 200+ students before him to get their diplomas, I read “Love at First Bark” (Dana Mentink). It was short and amusing. 🙂 The first line…er…paragraph… was great…

    “Marcy Deveraux was surprised to discover she didn’t actually miss the prince very much. The naked truth was, he’d been high maintenance with all that dark broodiness and not much of a sense of humor to speak of. By the end of their time together, he’d even gotten on her nerves just the tiniest bit. Still, Prince Rafe’s departure left her at a loss. It was not as though His Royal Highness was required to save anyone else from assassination, and it had been twelves months since that perilous jungle crossing, complete with poisonous spiders and the one-eyed bandit. The prince had survive more adventures than could be expected of anyone, fictional or not, and he deserved his happy ending.
    So now what?
    Marcy chewed her pencil eraser, staring at the blank pages of her notebook as the summer wind rattled the cabin windows.”

    This is the first sentence:

    This reminds me of the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. Yesterday I shared the line from Amy Clipston’s The Beloved Hope Chest (LOVED!!), but today I started reading The Memory of You by Catherine West.

    First Line is:
    “The wood-paneled walls of the boardroom were closing in.”

    Already half way through, will have it done by tomorrow. I guess you could say I’m enjoying it 🙂

    Goodness. I hope the book isn’t as depressing and hopeless as that first line sounds!
