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

Happy October!!!!!!! It’s time for all things fall, so I’m loving it! When I think about fall reading, I think about Melissa Tagg’s stories. I know she has novels set in all seasons, but there’s something about the fallish ones that makes me happy. I want flannel and pumpkins and candles and apple cider when I read them.

Keep Holding On is this feeling x 1000. Maybe it’s the charming story, or the apple orchard setting, or the lovable characters. I can list many reasons why I think this is a perfect fall romance! I have to share the first paragraph because it is captivating and SO clever!

FIRST LINES:

He’d tell his family tonight. After the wedding. Before he turned himself in to the police.

Your turn! What’s your first line?

  1. Happy Friday!!

    Well that line definitely pulls you in! Adding this to my TBR list!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Miss Tavistock’s Mistake by Linore Rose Burkhard. “Mrs. Filbert! Only guess what I have learned from my uncle!” Miss Tavistock, the nineteen year old orphaned ward of the Duke of Trent, rushed across the great library of Toadingham to where her companion, Mrs. Filbert, lay settled upon a settee amongst layers of pillows near the fire, sniffling and sneezing.”

  2. Happy Friday!
    I’m sharing the first line from Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano on my blog. I’m currently on chapter 22, so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Before Norman could fully process the idea of a giggling Theo, Stanley was escorting Theo into the room, beaming a bright smile at her, one she was certainly returning.”
    I hope you have a great weekend. 🙂❤📚

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Valley of Shadows” by Candace West:

    “The torrent swept away Lorena’s well-devised surprise into the muck.”
