It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by the Hoarding Books blog!
Today I’m sharing the first line of a new book by Karen Barnett, Ever Faithful. It is the third in her Vintage National Parks series. If you want to feel like you’ve visited the “old” parks of Mt. Rainier, Yosemite, and Yellowstone, this is an adventurous series you might like! I’m excited to read this new one very soon.
Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Great Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry booklet in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge.
Your turn! What’s your first line?
I am always excited when a new novel in a series I love comes out. Enjoy your read.
My contribution this week is: https://collinesblog.com/2019/06/28/first-line-fridays-little-women-by-louisa-may-alcott/
Thank you, Colline! I’m off to visit yours!
Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Pink Bonnet” by Liz Tolsma:
“Momma, Momma, watch me.”
That’s a cute line!!! Thanks for sharing and happy weekend!
My first line is from No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky. It came out a few days ago!
Katie McAlister’s heart pounded a frantic beat as she gripped the rickety railing and rushed down the back stairs.
Great historical book!
Canyon wait to read Karen’s book!
🙂 Happy Friday!
I think I would enjoy that book by Carrie! I need to add it to my TBR!
I haven’t read any of Karen Barnett’s books yet but I need to change that!
Today on my blog I shared the first 2 lines from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 where I am now: “I found my father on the roof, on his knees.” It’s amazing so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time 🙂
Karen’s books are wonderful, and each in this series is like a standalone.
I heard that recently too. I definitely need to give them a try!
Unique cover! Happy Friday!
I do like the buffalo on the cover! It makes the setting very obvious, too. Happy weekend!
Yay for Friday! I love that first line. Very sensory!
I’m offering up the first line from Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh on my blog: https://sherrinda.com/first-line-fridays-just-one-kiss/
I’ve visited Mt. Rainier and Yosemite, but not Yellowstone. However, I live near Rotorua, New Zealand, which has a lot of the same features.
I’m sharing the opening line from The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale over on my blog today, and I’m currently reading Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson. I clicked “buy” on the first line of the sample:
“Book Fair. The very words of the sign filled Mellie with loathing. Book Fair indeed. More like Book Unfair.”
Quirky, and it appeals to my sense of humour. I’m halfway through and loving it! Happy reading 🙂
An interesting first line!
Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Valerie Comer.
Spencer Haviland had prided himself on planning his life to the tiniest detail.
I have heard so much about this book!!! I really need to pick it up!
I absolutely loved our trip out west several years ago when our children were still young and traveled with us. This book looks lovely. I’m sorry I’m so late this week in participating. Life has just been a bit crazy, but good. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
Today I’m sharing the first lines from Living Lies by Natalie Walters: “Just let go. The breeze lifted Lane Kent’s auburn hair from the back of her neck.” Happy Reading!
