First Line Friday (Week 56): Just Let Go


Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
 
Today's book is: Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh


Just Let Go
First Line:
"He shouldn't be here."


This book just released earlier this week and I can't wait to dig in. Courtney Walsh has become a favourite author ever since I read Paper Hearts a few years ago. Because a few other commitments I have 3 other books to be read before I get to start this one, but I had to open it up and see how it starts. I shouldn't have done that though because now I want to keep going and find out why he shouldn't be there.

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over

  1. This one's on my TBR too. And I've heard good things so far!

    I'm sharing the first line from "Where the Fire Falls" by Karen Barnett on my blog today, but right now I'm going to share the first line from another read I recently enjoyed: The Captured Bride, by Michelle Griep.

    "It ain't right. YOU ain't right."

    Don't take it personally. ;-)

  2. I've heard great things about this one, and it has such a pretty cover. I love the flowers!

    Over on my blog I’m featuring Among The Poppies by J’Nell Ciesielski. Here I'll share the first line from Chapter 22.
    “The wrench spun like a dial, blurring faster and faster until it flew off the side of the engine and cartwheeled in the dirt.”

  3. I haven't YET read any of Courney Walsh's books. I've heard great things about them.

    My #FLF is from Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.

    Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.

  4. Happy Friday!

    Just Let Go is on my wish list. The opening line hooks me as a reader because I want to know more about this unnamed guy and why he isn't supposed to be where he is.


    My FLF this week is Love in the Balance by Regina Jennings. I’m also reading Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer.

    Cisco, Texas – April 1883
    “Tonight is the night. She could feel it.”

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:

    “A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”

    Happy Friday!

  7. Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.

    “Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lexi Blake’s new release “Order of Protection” on my blog. Check out to see the start of her newest series!

  9. Can't wait to read this one!

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first paragraph to This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller. Here I will share the first two lines from the book I'm currently reading, I Am My Beloved by Caryl McAdoo. It's a retelling of Song of Solomon.

    "Abishag held the cups level and took small ladylike steps, careful not to slosh. She grinned then placed the wine -- except water really, her mother wouldn't allow her real wine -- on the stone table."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend with lots of quality reading time! 😁

  10. The Book I'm sharing on my blog is Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan but I'm currently listening to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and I'll share the first line from that here: "We slept in what had once been the gymnasium." Happy reading this weekend! :)
