First Line Fridays #11: The Heart Between Us

It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by the Hoarding Books blog!


Because I’m in the mood to travel through story lately, this little #TBR novel seems like the perfect one to feature for today! Sisters, adventure, and literal heart connections combine in the upcoming release from Lindsay Harrel: The Heart Between Us.

  1. I’ll be getting to this one soon. I’m looking forward to it!

    I have the first line from Sondra Kraak’s new release, Three Words and a Kiss, on my blog today, but right now I’m going to share the first two lines from my current read, ‘Justice’ by Emily Conrad, which releases on 9 March:

    “Snow floated onto Main Street, each flake large enough to catch the breeze like a parachute. A miniature army, launching a surprise invasion on March first.”

    Have a great weekend!

  2. This one looks like a good read. I hope to get to it soon.

    I plan to start The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep this weekend, so I’ll share the first line from that book.

    “Numbers would be the death of Johanna Langley.”

    Happy Friday!

  3. Sounds great!

    Happy Friday!

    • Colleen always has such interesting settings!!! I haven’t read this one, though. I need to catch up 😉 Happy weekend!

  4. I very much want to read this book. I just got it to review. Now I need time!

    Happy Friday!

    Today I am showcasing the first line from Michelle Griep’s newest novel, The Innkeeper’s Daughter. I am loving the book. It is a page turner, and the hero is wonderful. I am just starting chapter 18, so I will share the first line from that chapter here:

    “Johanna opened the door to chaos, then stood there, jaw agape.”

  5. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is an old one: The Knight and the Dove by Lori Wick. Here, I will share Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer, “Peace and quiet. That’s all he sought.” Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Happy weekend!!! Ooh, I need to come see that line….. I loved that series by Lori but it’s been so long!

  6. A neat beginning. Thanks for sharing. Have a good weekend. Today on my blog I am featuring The Witches City series. I have started NO CURE FOR THE DEAD, a Florence Nightingale story. CHAPTER 1 September 1853 Some said I must have been possessed by a demon to take on the position as superintendent at the Establishment for Gentlewomen

  7. Thanks for sharing but … I want to know more LOL My lines for today: “Louisville, Kentucky, 2015

    All Allison wanted was for this conversation to be over. That and she hoped the ehavy gray clouds would part and the sun would appear. It could go either way today – sun or rain. She stood at the kitchen window, peeling old white paint off the sill as she waited for the Kentucky sky to make up its mind.

    Meanwhile, sitting behind her at the table, her lover, Cooper Mc Queen, gently ruined her life.” Happy Friday!

    • Hmm, that’s an interesting start!!! Makes me wonder what he’s doing to ruin her life!

    • I admit, the cover is what caught my attention first!!! But the story inside is promising from everything I’ve read 🙂 #coverlove

  8. I’ve read this – it was excellent. Now I just have to write the review …

    I’m currently reading another thought-provoking contemporary, Change of Heart by Courtney Walsh:

    Evelyn Brandt stood in her kitchen, the sound of uptight laughter filtering in from the dining room.

    • YAY I’m glad to hear it!!!! That is a story of Courtney’s I must read. I loved Paper Hearts!!! Happy weekend!

  9. I’ve been curious about this book. The cover says “read me, I’ll be fun” but the premise whispers “have the tissues ready.”

    I’m sharing from Karen Barnett’s The Road to Paradise on my blog today, so here I’ll share the first line from another book I hope to read soon, The Alliance by Jolina Petersheim:

    “Buffered by grassland, the collision is strangely quiet.”

    • Ha I agree! It sounds to be an emotional story.
      And I LOVED The Road to Paradise — it was such an adventure! Happy weekend!

  10. I can relate to that first line!

    The first line I shared on my blog this week is a long one, so I will treat you to the first line of book I finished this week “It was a dark an stormy night” – from ‘A Wrinkle in Time’
