First Line Fridays – 16 February 2018

16 Feb

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books

It’s Valentine Day’s week for First Line Friday’s this week! I’m an avid romance reader, so this week it was more about deciding which of the various romances I have on the pile was going to be featured – so in true Dee fashion – I closed my eyes and did an enny-meanie-minie-mo to select and the winner was….

Maggie Sullivan sought refuge in the stairwell between the sixth and sevenths floors at the far west end of the hospital, the steps least traveled in interns and residents racing from floor to floor, from emergency to emergency.

    Dee, Kristina McMorris has a book on Netgalley and it’s coming out in October I believe!

    Happy Friday!

    Today my First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading next week. A Mother’s Gift by Charlotte Hubbard.

    As Lenore Otto sat on the bed with Leah, wistfully watching the dusk of late November fill her daughter’s room, her heart was torn.

    Have an awesome weekend!!

      I already have Kristina’s book on pre-order – I think having the ARC would be too much torture!

    I’ve always loved that cover for some reason!

    My current first line is from Missy Tippens’ new novella “Her Valentine Reunion” (in the Back to You collection) – “In a preemptive strike against the Valentine’s Day funk that hit her every year in February, Abbie Rogers had been working on her latest craft project she’d dubbed Operation Kill Cupid.”

    The book I’m featuring on my blog is Rumors and Promises by Kathleen Rouser. Since I’m on chapter 14, I’ll share the first line from that chapter here. “I insist that you stay here and rest today, Sophie.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    I know I’m late but yesterday was busy! Happy Weekend! My first line is from A Langhorne Romance (which is in Right Where We Belong collection) by Deborah Raney.

    “No sooner had Lily O’Neal plunged her hands into the sticky bread dough than the doorbell rang. Why did it always work that way?”
