First Line Friday - Week 29

Happy Friday!!!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books. I am on a cowboy romance story kick right now. I featured a cowboy story last week and I am featuring another one this week but by a different author. I was first introduced to Cindy Roland Anderson when one of her books appeared in my Amazon recommendations section, I loved the cover so much that I had to read it, that book was 'Discovering Sophie'. I really enjoyed it and since then have read many more by her. The covers always draw me in (I love shoes with heals) and this one is no exception, I just love the pink cowboy boots! This book is next on my tbr (as soon as I finish my current read.)

Today's book is: The Cowboy's Accidental Bride by Cindy Roland Anderson

The Cowboy's Accidental Bride

First line is:
"The grinding sound of metal against metal pierced Ruby Harrison's ears
as she frantically pushed on the brakes."

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 Thanksgiving! And I love those pink boots on the cover!

    I'm featuring the second book in Liz Johnson's Prince Edward Island Dreams series on my blog this week--"Where Two Hearts Meet"--because the main character Caden is a cook. However I can't resist sharing the first line of Ronie Kendig's Discarded Heroes novella here (Lygos), which just released this week:

    "Killing someone changed a person--irrevocably altered how they viewed life, each breath, and each day . . . or the next kill."

    It. Is. Awesome! 😁

  2. Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm sharing about One Enchanted Noel by Melissa Tagg over at my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from the book I'm currently reading, The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay.

    "How can I help?"

    Happy Weekend!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

    As the days grow shorter, some faces grow long. But not mine. Every autumn, when the wind turns cold and darkness comes early, I am suddenly happy. It's time to start making soup again. - Leslie Newman

    Dear Neil,

    I've started this e-mail sever times, and I know that doesn't mean a lot because you've yet to receive a completed draft, but it's true.- Together at the Table by Hillary Manton Lodge

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Match of Wits by Jen Turano:

    "Sometimes, no matter how independent and self-assured a young lady believes herself to be, certain situations demand a good dose of screaming."

  5. So sorry I got to your post so late…it’s been a busy time with family who traveled from various places for Thanksgiving celebrations.

    I featured Fraying at the Edge by Cindy Woodsmall on my blog for this past FLF, so here I will leave the first line from the beautiful novel I just finished reading, also by Cindy Woodsmall, The Gift of Christmas Past. Cindy wrote this phenomenal read with her daughter-in-law, Erin. It’s a great book that I cannot recommend enough!
