First Line Fridays # 32: “Take a Chance on Me” by Becky Wade

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


During the spring-y time of year, I gravitate toward bright and happy contemporary stories. Author Becky Wade always delivers on this front with romantic stories that have plenty of depth along with their happily-ever-afters. Her upcoming Misty River Romance series is one I’m highly anticipating! The prequel novella, Take a Chance on Me, is available now for free. It’s on my very-soon TBR!

The hospital’s electronic doors whooshed open as Penelope Quinn rushed toward the emergency room.

  1. Happy Good Friday!

    Becky Wade is one of my favorites, and I really enjoyed Take a Chance on Me, hopefully you will too!

    On my blog this week, I’m sharing the first line from The Truth in Tiramisu by Rachael Bloome:

    “Every time Eliza Carter closed her eyes, she saw his face.”

    Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend 🙂

  2. My book this week is THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE MOOR by Michelle Griep.
    March 1861 Dartmoor Prison, Devon, England

    Death prowled the cell block like a dark animal seeking prey— especially the weakest.

    Read the novella by Becky! Can’t wait to read the book.

  3. Happy Good Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring The Shotgun Proposal by Barbara Goss. Here, I will share the first line of my current read, The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan. Trying to beat the rain, Patience Cavanaugh hurried up the single main street of raw Nevada City. Wishing you a Happy Easter!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Color of Love” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Charles Beaumont Allerton Junior tugged at the hem of his button-up shirt, hoping to work out some of the wrinkles that his rapid – and poor – packing job had created.”

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today I’m sharing from chapter 27 in The Happy Camper by Melody Carlson.
    “Still needing to get groceries for tonight’s dinner with Jordan, Dillon was tempted to skip the Silver Slipper altogether.”
    Hope you have a great Easter weekend. 🙂❤📖

  6. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch but I’m currently reding The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner so I’ll share the first line from chapter 11 here: “Since our Sunday lunch had been so rudely interrupted by, you know…reality, Ben and I decided our first date called for a do-over.” Happy reading!

  7. Happy Saturday! I have this downloaded on my kindle, but haven’t had chance to read it yet. Today, I’m sharing the first line from Before I Called You Mine by Nicole Deese: “If Obsessive Email Checking Disorder were a disease, I was likely already in the final stages: trigger thumb, mindless refreshing, aimless scrolling, and of course, an inability to focus on anything else in the entire world.”
