Firday Line Friday (Week 68): A Worthy Pursuit

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer
A Worthy Pursuit
First Line:
"I'm closing the school, Miss Atherton, and that's my final word on the subject."

I discovered Karen Witemeyer last year, when I read Heart on the Line. I loved that book and knew I needed to read some of her other ones. Since then I have read two others and also enjoyed them so when I saw this book on sale on Amazon earlier this week I had to pick it up. I'm hoping to read it soon.
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. Books on sale...always a good day. :) Happy reading Jane!

  2. I've only read a couple of Witemeyer's books, but I've really enjoyed them! I'm sharing the first line of "A Worthy Rebel" on my blog today. I'll share the first line of my current read, Sarah Loudin Thomas's "A Shot at Love," here: "Fleeta hunkered low, careful not to rattle the crisp fallen leaves all around her."

  3. Karen is one of my favorite authors. I've read almost all of her books. This one I purchased in paperback form years ago and my little ones got hold of it before I could read it - tearing out and losing two of the pages. So I haven't actually read this title yet. Thank you for reminding me. I just added the ebook to my kindle. :)

    Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Lynnette Bonner's High Desert Haven. Here, I'll share one of my favorite lines from Crossed Out by Christina Coryell (her contribution to the Once Upon A Laugh novella collection):

    Kids at yard sales were nearly impossible to corral. Grandmas watching kids at yard sales were like wild mustangs, throwing caution and endless quarters to the wind.

  4. I’m featuring lines from Danielle Norman’s upcoming release Roadster on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Keira Montclair’s Falling for the Chieftan. It’s her new historical time travel romance.

    “Allison Sutton’s feet hit water as she plunged into the murky liquid at the base of the cascading falls.”

    Happy Reading!

  5. Karen's books are great! The novella that follows this story is a lot of fun, too.

    I"m featuring Starting From Scratch by Kate Lloyd on my blog, so here is a line from page 11:

    Happy Friday!
    "A few minutes later I sat on the suitcase's lid while Marta fastened the metal latches with gusto."

  6. Happy Saturday!

    Yesterday on my blog, I shared the first lines from Cara Putman's novel Delayed Justice. Here I will share the first line from the novel I'm currently reading, An Unpresentable Glory by Eleanor Gustafson.

    "On her return from church, Kileenda Jensen discovered a problem, and it had nothing to do with her name."

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“š

  7. I know I'm late for Friday, so happy Labor Day weekend! My first line is from Under Prairie Skies by Cynthia Roemer.

    "The sound of a spry whistle froze Charlotte Stanton in her tracks. She tightened her hold on her bucket of creek water, eyes narrowing."
