First Line Friday

Gone with the Twins

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

Gone with the Twins

League of Literary Ladies, book 6

by Kylie Logan

This week's line is:

” “Fiddle-dee-dee!” The real question- at least for me- wasn’t where Chandra Morrisey had found the elegant white lace fan she swept back and forth in front of her face when the exclama-tion oozed out of her, but where on earth her exaggerated Southern drawl had come from. South Bass Island, three miles from the Ohio shore in Lake Erie, is not exactly drip-ping with Spanish moss or known for its grits.”

This series is one of the coolest in the cozy mystery world. A literary club of ladies that end up solving mysteries that have a way of being themed around their book club book. This has to be one of my favorites as I am a huge Gone with the Wind fan. I hope you check it out!

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.

    I expected you to post Treble At the Jam Fest. The first line makes me hungry for rhubarb! Happy Friday! My first line is from Widow by Denise Weimer: “Oglethorpe County, Georgia, June 1857, An angel of light stood before me, blonde, beautiful, one hand behind his back.”

    That looks like a neat book!

    My first line is:
    The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.
    “The Road to Paradise” by Karen Barnett

    “The first inkling that something was wrong was the waking in the darkness to find the cat pawing at my face.” ~ The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
    I’ve heard great things about this book. I am really looking to reading this mystery/thriller.

    “Maude Welling’s twelve-year-old brother, Jack, raced across the waxed wood floor of the soda shop, straight toward her, then skidded to a halt.”

    This first line comes from the book I am currently reading – My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island by Carrie Fancett Pagels
