First Line Fridays (Week 47): Pelican Point

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Pelican Point by Irene Hannon

Pelican Point
First line:
"He'd inherited a lighthouse?"

This was one of the books I have been anxouisly awaiting and finally the wait is over, it realeased this week (Tuesday)! It is book 4 in the Hope Harbour series and even though it can be read as a stand alone, it includes characters from previous books making me feel like I am returning to one of my favourite summer vacation spots. I just finished this book and my review will be up for you on Sunday.

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!

    The babe's crying would rip her heart to shreds if she had to listen to it one more minute. - The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

  2. This one's on my TBR pile (which is ridiculously long for April!).

    I'm currently reading the First Love Forever Collection, so I'll share the first line from the current novella I'm in, Heartfelt Echoes by Jennifer Uhlarik:

    Travis McCaffrey stared at the front door of the mansion before him.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Happy Friday! The book I'm highlighting on my blog is The Mistress of Rosemere by Sarah Ladd. I will share here the first line of Chapter 11, which I'm currently reading. "A flurry of activity swirled in the recovering Rosemere." Wishing you a blessed weekend.

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Rachael Anderson's newest Regency novel, My Sister's Intended. It's an excellent book I highly recommend. Here I will share the first three lines from the novel I'm currently reading, Not Abandoned by MacKenzie Morganthal.

    "It was a prison like none other. With boarded windows and a tall fence, I'd almost forgotten what it looked like outside. The bars that caged me in were strong, but not as strong as the bars I'd put up around my heart."

  5. Happy Friday!
    The book I'm sharing on my blog is A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron but I'm sharing the book I'm currently (re)reading to get ready for the new Hallmark movie this weekend Once Upon A Prince by Rachel Hauck: "What did he say? The storm gusts moving over the Atlantic must have garbled his words." Hope you have a blessed weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s book The Kremlin Conspiracy, which my husband grabbed from me and read first:

    “Louisa Sherbatov had just turned six, but she would never turn seven.”

  7. I’m going to show the first line of The Pirate Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo:
    Mama may have been named for the great-grandmother who traveled from England on the Mayflower, but the fact certainly did not keep her in the land of her birth.
    Love Irene Hannon!

  8. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim on my blog today, so I'll share from a recent read. Here's the first line from the prologue of Julie Cantrell’s Perennials:

    “Summer 1979
    Oxford, Mississippi

    “Four!” Bitsy cheers, twisting the lid to her firefly jar.”

  9. Well that would be cool! I'm thinking Pete's Dragon. :) Happy Friday!
