This weekend we get to celebrate the daddies in our lives. Whether it be your own father, the one to your children, siblings, or friends, Dads make a huge impact on our lives. And this is our chance to say “thank you” to those who have protected, nurtured, grown us in faith, and so much more. So thank you, Dad, for all you’ve given me.
I always enjoy a story with a great dad in it! And Brady Collins in Honeysuckle Dreams fits that role well. I mean, a man with a baby! How can you possibly resist!
Because the first line actually starts with the heroine of the book, I’m sharing the first line from Brady’s point of view (just a couple pages in).
Who’s a fictional father you loved? Share the first line from that book in the comments then hop over to Hoarding Books and find out who other favorite fathers are this week! And be sure and hug your favorite dad (or dads) this weekend!
My first line this week is from Tricia Goyer’s A Daring Escape. I don’t have a bonus line to share, this week because I borrowed it from my local library and had to take it back yesterday. So, you’ll just have to stop by my blog to see the first line! <3

Happy Friday! My first line is from The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck:
“He must finish. He must.”

Happy Friday! I love Denise Hunter stories!
My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading soon, The Life Lucy Knew by Karma Brown.
I have a complicated relationship with my memory. Most of us, me included, believe our memories are fairly accurate.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!
My first line is from Laura Ingall Wilder’s, “Little House on the Prairie” which I am sharing on the blog today. I’m still currently reading “Just Let Go” so I don’t have an actual first line to share today that isn’t from the blog.

Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky
The book I’m sharing this week on my blog is “Before the Apocalypse” by Taylor Jaxon. This is a Young Adult Christian Suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter Fourteen of that same book: “Sam extended his hand through the doorway of the ivy-covered mansion. An appendage the size of a catcher’s mitt engulfed his palm.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
OHHHH! I think I have this book on my TBR shelf! I’ll have to check! I hope you can stop by:

The book I’m sharing on my blog today is Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (12): “‘Do you think he followed you there?’ Parker asked, taking a bit of kung pao chicken.” Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading! 🙂
Today’s first lines come from Finding Wicked by Kathryn L. James
“The day started out like any other, but then I received an email from Cordelia Irwin, the human resources director, and it was tagged urgent.”
Sounds ominous, doesn’t it!
I’m featuring lines from Nina Lane’s The Secret Thief on my blog today. I hope you can stop by!
I’m reading a novella today, The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller. Here are the first lines:
“Lucy Fisher had never been so drenched in her entire life. Still, she managed a smile as her bus drove away.”
Have a great weekend!
Yes, Brady is a great example of a father!
Today on my blog I’m sharing from Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall, part of the Timeless Love collection. I’ll share the first line from another story in the collection here, Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo:
“It wasn’t right to pray he would just die.”
Happy Saturday! My first line is from Candace Cameron’s new book, Kind is the New Classy: “Not a day goes by that I’m not thankful for the amazing job I have. I get to entertain people through comedy, romance, drama and heartfelt storytelling by acting my way through your television screens.” Happy reading!
