First Line Friday (Week 41): Someplace Familiar


Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
 
Today's book is: Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger

Someplace Familiar
First line:
"Not much had changed about Laurel Cove, North Carolina
in the ten years since Livy Johnson had last visited."


What brings Livy back to Laurel Cove? Will it be like she remembers? I am currently reading this and loving the characters so much. I'm torn between enjoying the story so much its hard to put down and not wanting to get to the end and having to say goodbye.

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over
to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. Happy Friday!
    Over on my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from Sarah Sundin's "The Sea Before Us". It's a fantastic story!
    Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 5 of the same book.
    "Teleprinters chattered and telephones buzzed, and Dorothy carried a stack of diagrams into the intelligence office."

  3. Just that first line sounds like a style I like. :)

    The book closest me is one I have to review in about a month, "Presumption and Partiality" by Rebekah Jones (it's a vintage Jane Austen retelling). In fact, I haven't even looked at the first line... let's see what it says...
    "The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932. Then again, it could be argued that the sun always showed a cheery face in that part of Arizona's desert and most especially in the summer." (Okay, first two lines, I cheated... ;) )

  4. This looks like an interesting book I need to add to my TBR!

    I’m sharing about “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky on the blog today. My first line will come from “Keturah” by Lisa T. Bergren since it’s the closest book to me.

    10 June, 1773
    Rivenshire, England

    In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened. his daughters received them all.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I bought this, but I haven't read it yet. Thanks for sharing :)

    I'm sharing the first line from If I Run by Terri Blackstock on my blog today, but I'm about to start reading The Winsome Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller,which releases in March. Here's the first line:

    The deeply blue Gloucestershire sky brought comfort as Catherine Winthrop emerged from the tenant farmhouse.

    I love Carolyn Miller's books, so I'm looking forward to reading it!

  6. On my blog, I’m featuring A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer. Here, I will share a line from a book I am currently reading. The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. Isn’t that timely? 🙂 The first line in the Preface is “One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that we were not meant for this world alone. We were meant for Heaven — and Heaven is our ultimate home. But what exactly is Heaven?” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  8. Oh, I know that feeling too well! I'm sharing from Michelle Griep's The Innkeeper's Daughter on my blog today. Here are the first two lines from one of my other current reads, Winter in Thrush Green by Miss Read:

    "Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire."

    Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first lines from Lisa T. Bergren's fantastic novel, Keturah. Here, I will share the first lines from the novel I'm currently reading, A Brush with the Beast by Richard Sones.

    "Good night, Mr. D," chirped an elderly secretary as Nick left his office on another late night. Slim, young, black briefcase in hand, he walked briskly toward the door.
