First Line Friday (Week 81): The Christmas Vow

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.

Today's book is:  The Christmas Vow by Shanna Hatfield
The Christmas Vow
First Line:
"Adam Guthry glared across the sea of mourners at his only sibling and vowed his brother would be the next person the community of Hardman gathered to bury."

When I began this book earlier this week, I decided that I had to share this opening line for this week's First Line Friday post. Why is Adam angry at his brother? What did he do that has upset Adam so? I just finished this book and know why Adam was upset with his brother, I will tell you that all works out in the end. As this is a Christmas story, I plan to share my review within the next couple weeks.

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. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall. I’m very excited to get into that book. Because I am just starting this novel, I will post the first two lines from chapter 2.

    “Captain’s orders. You and Mrs. Keate stay here until it’s safe.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fantastic reading time! 😃❤️📚

  2. Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I'm sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I'm currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I'll share the first line of my current chapter (there's no chapter #s) here: "Do her eyes accuse you?" Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  3. Yikes! My first line comes from yesterday's book mail -- Dead Sea Rising by Jerry Jenkins. "'It's your mother,' Nicole Berman's father said over the phone."

  4. I sure hope I don't do anything to upset that guy! Lol.

    I’m featuring the first line from Carolyn Miller’s latest release, The Making of Mrs Hale, over on my blog today, but at the moment I’m reading Jerusalem’s Queen by Angela Hunt:

    “They are all here, gathered like vultures around my bed, watching with long faces and occasionally bending near to listen for my breathing.”

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Looking Glass Lies" by Varina Denman:

    "I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again."
