First Line Friday (Week 37): The Dandelion Field

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books. Last night when I got home from work and sat down to do this post, I noticed that the blog surpassed 10,000 views yesterday. After a stressful and long day spent on preparing budgets it definitely brightened my evening. A huge thank you to everyone who takes time to visit my blog.
Today's book is: The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer

The Dandelion Field

First line is:
"Okay, Ginevieve. What's bugging you?"

Hmm, what's leads someone to ask this question? Guess I'll have to keep reading to find out.

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. I really enjoyed that book!

    I'm featuring the first line from the SECOND chapter of Mesu Andrews' 'Isaiah's Daughter' on my blog (since the first line of chapter one is on Hoarding Books this week), but right now I'm going to share the first line from 'Fatal Mistake' by Susan Sleeman:

    "He was coming for her, and he was close."

    Have a great weekend!

  2. What bugs me is the spelling of her name. But I've read this book (and the sequel), and both are excellent.

    I'm about to start reading The Boy in the Hoodie, a young adult novel by debut Australian author Catriona McKeown. Here's the first line:

    Before I met him, there wasn't much I knew about the boy in the hoodie. He seemed to live above the rules.

  3. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Heather Day Gilbert's latest "Guilt by Association" It is the 3rd book in her Murder in the Mountains series. I'll share here the first line from chapter 4.
    "Without a doubt, the number five trailer is the prettiest place in Scots' Hollow."
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I'm sharing about The Melody of the Soul by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but I'll share a first line from a book on my soon-to-read list here.

    Your first thought upon picking up this book is probably: How can a person born without any limbs consider himself to to be the hands and feet of Jesus on this Earth?
    -Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God's Love for All His Children by Nick Vujicic

    Happy weekend!

  5. I've read a couple books by Katheryn Springer but not this one yet.

    The snow in middle Tennessee melted enough that my mailman finally showed up with a few packages in hand (a few of the books I’ve been waiting on). I pulled a first line to share from one of those:

    Her head throbbed and grogginess gripped her.
    –Thread of Revenge by Elizabeth Goddard

  6. The book I'm sharing on my blog this week is Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy. I will share here the first line from a children's book I just finished reading by A. Lynn Basset called The Boy and The Clock Book. "Tick-tock, tick-tock. Only three minutes stood between Charlie Higgins and the best summer ever!" Have a great weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! My first line is from Callum's Compass by Sara L. Foust:

    "A persistent knock at the front door dragged Kat Williams awake."

  8. I love that book!

    My current first line is from The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright -

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

  9. I just read The Hearts We Mend by her, which was my first Kathryn Springer! It was excellent, so now I need to check out more from her, I think. :)


    Two Years Earlier

    Renee huddled in the garden shed in her pajamas and tried to hear him over the pounding of her heart in her ears. - Beneath Copper Falls by Colleen Coble

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  11. Never heard of this book. I will have to check it out.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog, I am featuring Brett Armstrong's novel Destitutio Quod Remissio. It's an interesting read so far. Here I will post the first lines from chapter four of this book.

    "The streets were filled beyond the usual that day, or perhaps it only appeared so to Marcus. The market district was expansive enough to accommodate thousands. Over it looked the tall stone buildings surrounding the huge open Forum that was the city's center for centuries. All of the grand structures were washed white by the noon's radiance and loomed large over the transactions of Rome's citizens."

  12. A new author and book for me. I don't read many romances. As I read mostly Cozies.I am featuring one of my must read series. Mattie Winston first book, the link is

  13. Brilliant first line! Happy Saturday Jane!
