Happy fall, y’all!! I am so excited it actually feels like fall here. FINALLY! I love the cooler weather because it drives the humidity away. Although, I am a bit in denial that we are already more than halfway through October. Guess I can’t have it all.
Who is devouring all of the Christmas reads already? (Both hands raised). I am a person with no will power (aka self control) when it comes to Christmas. When I get Christmas gifts in the mail in December, I don’t wait until the 25th to open them. Don’t worry, this year I will be forced to since my parents are flying in on Christmas Eve!
So, of course when I get my hands on a Christmas read I’m not going to wait to read it. I don’t care if it’s 90 degress outside. My MO is to crank the AC, crawl under a blanket, and read! Now I get to share another one of these reads with you.
Have you read any of Jessica R. Patch’s romantic comedies? They are so much fun!! As the opening lines of A Honey of a Christmas will show.
About the Book
They say opposites attract; it’ll take a Christmas miracle to keep this couple from killing one another!
Agnes Piercy is finally going to make her mark now that she’s in charge of the Honeyhaven Winter Wonderland. She’s created a new event this year—Santa’s Village—which will bring in tons of tourists and money for charities and church ministries, and secure her a full client list when she opens up her own event planning business. But things go haywire from the get-go, including her feelings for one Tuck Renner.
Tuck Renner has been tasked (against his will) with building the Santa’s Village which means taking orders from Miss Bossy Pants herself—Agnes Piercy. But she’s off to a seriously rocky start. Feeling sorry for her, and a lot sorry for himself having to hear about it day in and out, he vows to make this the greatest event ever. But things don’t go as planned. However, they may go exactly like they were meant to.
Your turn! Grab the book nearest you and share the first line (or lines) in the comments. Then head over to our hosts at HOARDING BOOKS and see what others are sharing this week!
It is always fun to see what books are being shared on Friday! Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Mary Connealy’s newest book “The Reluctant Warrior”. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 20 of the same book.
“What harebrained decision had caused John to come west working for the Chiltons?”

This is on my October reads list too!

My first lines come from the book It Started With Christmas by Jenny Hale…..
“I want to spend Christmas at the cabin.” Nana’s voice came from the dark stairway, startling Holly McAdams and making her jump as she walked in the front door, the warmth of the little house a stark contrast to the icy cold outside.
Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!
That does sound fun! I’m sharing from The End Begins by Sara Davison today. Here are the first lines from Chapter 1:
Meryn didn’t move until a loud thud and a shout from upstairs yanked her from her stunned silence. “We need to get out now.”
Happy Friday and happy reading!

My first line is from Chapter 8 of Murder of Convenience by Linda Henton Matchett:
“Police. Open up. “ Heavy pounding shook Geneva’s door.
BECCA WEIDEL says
This week on my blog I shared Ours for a Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer but I’m currently reading Chosen People by Robert Whitlow so here I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (26): “Hana had trouble containing her excitement during her morning Skype session with Daud.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!
