First Line Friday (Week 62): Heart Land

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Heart Land by Kimberly Stuart

Heart Land
First Line:
"No one had said anything about farm animals."

Don't you love the cover? I really enjoy the peacefulness it gives off. This book released earlier this week (July 17th) and includes a nice mix of small town and big city atmosphere. It rarely happens that C and I are reading the same book at the same time, but it happened with this one as we both were lucky enough to receive advanced copies. We shared our thoughts last week and they can be found here and here.
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. That cover *is* great! My first line is from The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall. “To put it as simply as possible: this is the story of a polygamist who has an affair.”

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Susan May Warren’s book “The Heat is On”.

    “Skye Doyle was going to get everyone killed.”

  3. On my blog, I’m featuring The Purchased Bride by Kit Morgan. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Four of that novel. “Herman Mayer wasn’t the brightest or the nicest man around, and he knew it.” Wishing you a great Friday!

  4. Happy Friday!😎 I loved Heart Land!!💖💖

    My First Lines come from If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren.......

    “Watching you die is the last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning.” Sierra said it in a low mutter, nearly under her breath, but Ian heard it anyway, a slash across his chest, right between the ribs.

    Have a great weekend, stay cool, and Happy Reading!😊💖📚

  5. Happy Friday :)

    I love the cover to Heart Land. The first lines hook me as a reader and I want to read more. I love historical romances, but this may be a contemporary romance that I could like.

    This week's FLF is Jen Turano's A Match of Wits. I'm also reading Roseanna M. White's Circle of Spies from the Culper Ring Series:

    "Marietta Hughes was the worst widow in the history of mourning."

    Hope you have a nice weekend :)

  6. That cover is beautiful and I want to know more about those farm animals. :D

    I’m sharing about “Trials of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry on the blog today, but I’m currently reading “Unafraid” by Carey Scott. I’ll share the first line of chapter two.

    Authentic living. What does it even mean?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  7. So what's wrong with farm animals? Because someone sounds like they have an issue ...

    I’m sharing from Open Circle by Stacy Monson on my blog.

    But Then There Was You by Kara Issac has just won the 2018 RITA Award for Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements from Romance Writers of America, so I'm going to share the first line to celebrate Kara's win:

    Paige McAlister didn’t think think it was possible, but there was something worse than being single and thirty at your nineteen-year-old sister’s wedding.

  8. Happy Friday! That first line made me laugh. I’m sharing from A Rebel Heart by Beth White on my blog today, here’s the first line of Chapter 2:

    “Spyglass pressed to his good eye, Daughtry crouched behind a tree at the edge of the creek running through Buckner’s Ravine.”

  9. This is only tbr! Happy weekend!
