First Line Friday - Week 27

Happy Friday!!!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books. Since we got our first snowfall yesterday evening I thought I would feature a book with snow on the cover to try to get me in the mood for winter and Christmas. As I was searched through my books trying to find one that featured snow I realized I don't have very many to choose from (probably because I don't like  winter so I am not drawn to winter books.)  But I did find one that I picked up this summer at our local thrift store. I've read a few of these Love Finds You books and have really enjoyed them. I will be reading this one soon. I have to say as much as I am not a fan of snow, this cover is pretty.

Today's book is: Love Finds You in Frost, Minnesota by Judy Baer

Love Finds You in Frost Minnesota

First line is:
"Merry Blake straightened the gold angel at the top of the Christmas tree and stood back to inspect it. She had the same curly blond fluff of hair as the angel staring benevolently down at her, the same green eyes, and the same perpetually happy expression, as if Christmas joy were etched into her soul."

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. She sounds like a cheery character!

    I already had Drew Farthering's latest adventure, Death at Thorburn Hall, all lined up for today before I remembered about the Veteran's Day theme, so that's the book featured on my blog, but I thought I would pick one of Ronie Kendig's books to share here in honour of Veteran's Day. This is the first line from 'Raptor 6':

    "Can't breathe. Can't breathe."

  2. That's a cute cover!

    Over at my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Susan Sleeman's Cold Terror.

    I'm currently reading Welcome to Wishing Bridget by Ruth Logan Herne, so I'll leave that first line here:

    Don't do it.

  3. "The Sun skimmed the horizon in the eastern sky, bathing the far hillside in a pink morning hue."
    -- The Heart of an Agent by: Tracey J. Lyons

  4. My first line (well, really first two lines because they are so good) is from Runaway Romance by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Ann Stanway sat in her television producer’s office trying to still the butterflies doing battle in her belly. No, not butterflies, more like buzzards.”

  5. Lovely first line! As far as snow goes, it never snows where I live, so I would love to see it. :) But I know driving in it can be a nightmare! Happy Friday!

  6. My first line is from a book I'm going to be reading soon Hope Travels Through by Loni Kemper Moore.....

    The first time Dad picked me up at the Evansville airport in his 1976 Corvette, I should have recruited a fairy godmother. Not that I believed in such things.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. There is a place called Frost? Wow!

    I'm currently reading The House on Foster Hill by Jamie Jo Wright, which looks like it's going to be full of suspense. Here's the first line:

    Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.

  8. Happy Weekend!

    SEPTEMBER 1943

    Esther's father halted the lazy swaying of the porch swing. - While We're Far Apart by Lynn Austin

  9. I really love the cover of this book! Will have to check this out.

    Happy Friday!

    I'm showcasing The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner on my blog this week. So, here I will share a line from the book I'm currently reading, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan. I'm just starting chpt. 15, so that's the line I'll share:

    "On Monday morning, Kate heard her email ping and saw the message was from the Northern District of Georgia. Her heartbeat sped up as she clicked to open it."

  10. My current read is An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter
    Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797
    "The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood."
