First Line Friday (Week 70): Her Minnesota Man

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Her Minnesota Man by Brenda Coulter
Her Minnesota Man
First Line:
"Jackson Bell sighed and set down the guitar he'd been picking as he
stood alone in a dim corner of the concert venue's band room."

A couple weeks ago I was going through my read list on Goodreads and as soon as I saw this one on there I remembered loving it. I enjoy re-reading books I have previously loved and since it was 3 years ago when I first read this I thought it was time to re-read it. I have now just started it, I wonder if I will enjoy it as much this time around?
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. My first line is from chapter 6 of The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear:

    Morning dawned with a bit more edge to the wind and the clouds more thick and grey, spitting definite rain.

  2. On my blog, I shared the first line of Alessandro D'Avenia's "White as Silence, Red as Song," but here I will share something from my current read, "Strange Grace" by Tessa Graton. I'm currently 25% into the story and I'm enjoying it! This is the first line of the current chapter I'm on.

    "Three year ago, when Arthur was nearly fifteen, his best friend, Rhun, stopped the along the narrow deer path they'd been stalking along, and kissed him."

    Hope you're having a great day! Enjoy the weekend ahead. :D

  3. Hmmm... I'll have to check this one out!

    I'm sharing the first line from "My Hands Came Away Red" by Lisa McKay on my blog today, but I've also just finished reading Lisa Harris's new release "A Secret to Die For":

    A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out of the novel she was reading.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. My first line comes from Thunder and Rain by Charles Martin.

    Five years ago

    Andie grabbed the pommel, slid her foot in the stirrup and hopped up on May-a fifteen-hand black cutting horse with white socks.

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  5. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Magnolia Summer by Melanie Dickerson. Here I'll share the first line from chapter 5 of the same book.

    "The eastern sky turned pink as Celia dressed for the day."

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from "A Widow's Hope" by Vannetta Chapman:

    "Monday mornings were never easy."

  7. I love re-reading books! I just wish I had time to do so.

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Tracy Groot's novel The Stones of my Accusers. Currently, I am reading Finding Us by Heather Moore. So far, it's a fun book. One of those books that has me smiling with each page! I am starting chapter 7, so I will leave the first line from there.

    "Opening the bookshop on Saturday morning wasn't as bad as Felicity thought it might be."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with quality reading time!

  8. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is “Out of the Storm” by Jody Hedlund. Since I’m still reading it, I will share the first line of the fourth chapter here. “Isabelle,” called Henry from the bedroom. “I need you!” May your weekend be all you’re hoping it will be.

  9. Happy Friday! After preparing to share the first line from Shelley Shepard Gray’s Her Fear, I ended up reading the entire book. So here I’ll share the first lines for a novella I plan to read soon, Come Fly with Me by Gina Welborn and Becca Whitham:

    Please, let him not be here. As Luanne Palmer climbed the stairs to the second floor, she muttered “please” after “please.”
