First Line Fridays # 36: “The Mistletoe Countess” by Pepper Basham

It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by Carrie at Reading Is My Superpower!

WOW, it has been a long time since I’ve featured a beginning line for First Line Fridays! It’s never too early in the year to talk about Christmas, though, OR the fun kind of romance Pepper Basham writes, like The Mistletoe Countess. I have been excited about this novel for a long time! I “met” Freddie and Grace in an earlier version and I’m anxious to spend more time with them, their grand estate, a mystery, Grace’s sleuth antics, and guaranteed kisses.

EPIGRAPH & FIRST LINE:

Every fairy tale needed an appropriate castle.
