Happy Friday, friends! Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend (or maybe for the entire upcoming week with the holiday in there)? My weekend will consist of running a few errands, dog sitting for a friend, and lots of reading. And while I didn’t take all of next week off, I’m not going to complain about getting to stay home from the office next Wednesday (hey, more reading!).
This week I’m sharing the first line from The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck. I love her books! Her characters always stand out (even the supporting ones) and there are so many quotable lines to find within the pages. But even more importantly, there’s always a message the resonates with me in these dual time stories from Hauck.
Remember those quotable lines I mentioned? I’ll give you a bonus today.
Alright, now it’s your turn. Read anything that you just had to highlight or flag lately? Grab the book nearest you and drop the first line in the comments. Then head on over to our hosts at Hoarding Books and see what others are sharing this week.
Thanks for dropping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! I can’t believe I still haven’t read any of Rachel’s books!
My FLF comes from a book I will be reading shortly, The Hope Jar by Wanda Brunstetter….
Tears streamed down Sara Murray’s face as she sat on the living-room floor, going through another box of her mother’s things. Mama had passed away two weeks ago after a short three-month battle with colon cancer.
Have a great weekend, happy reading, and stay cool!

My weekend is going to involve the usual running around as a taxi for my kids and spending some quality time with them, as they’re all a bit miserable that Daddy’s gone away for two weeks! And on a completely unrelated note, that picture with the book in the sand drives me crazy! Lol! Ack, how will they ever get all the sand out!
I’m featuring the first line from Jaime Jo Wright’s upcoming release ‘The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond’ on my blog, but right now I’m going to share the first line from my current read, A Love Restored, by Kelly Goshorn:
Land sakes it was hot.

I need to make a spot in my TBR pile for one of Rachel Hauck’s books – I hear good things about them and should really try them for myself! 🙂
On my blog, I’m featuring Only the River Runs Free, but I’ll share the first line of another book on my TBR list here, Elizabeth Musser’s Searching for Eternity: “I am watching the evening news, alone in my house, hungry and tired from the day’s work, eating a piece of leftover pizza and wishing it were blanquette de veau. The story comes near the end of the NBC program.”
Have a blessed weekend! 🙂
Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Rachel Fordham’s debut book “The Hope of Azure Springs.” I hope you get the chance to check it out! Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter Five.
“Em stood on the front porch, quietly looking heavenward. The sun had yet to rise.”
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I’m trying so hard to squeeze this novel in. Hopefully soon. 😀
I’m sharing about “The Hawaiian Discovery” by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter over on my blog today. Since I’m currently reading a YA Christian fantasy novel called “Choice of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry, I’ll share my first line from there.
“He walked alone down the sidewalk.”
Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!
I love Rachel Hauck! Enjoy 🙂 I hope you can stop by:
Becky Smith says
Rachel’s book is excellent!
Happy Friday! My first line is from Hidden Currents by Christy Barritt:
“At the sound of a footfall behind her, Cady Matthews’s back muscles tightened faster than a mousetrap snapping its prey.”
Suzie Waltner says
I’ve loved this Lantern Beach series! Just have to carve some time in my schedule for that last book that just came out 🙂
I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about having next Wednesday off 🙂 I have family coming in from North Carolina for the weekend, but they’ll be gone by the 4th, so I think I’ll have a “me” day.
I just read “The Love Letter” earlier this week–so good, and the cover is just stunning!
I’m featuring Courtney Walsh’s “Just Let Go” on my blog today: “He shouldn’t be here.”
Beth Erin says
I adore this story!
I just finished reading Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan…
Guilty. That’s the only possible verdict.
I’m just not sure about this timeslip genre. I should try it…
I’m sharing the first line from Falling for the Cowgirl on my blog today, but I’m currently reading The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano. The first line is “Three hours into Saturday night dinner service and she was already running on fumes.”
I hope you have a good weekend!
You’re right about the quotable lines – those are both great quotes!
I’m sharing from Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano on my blog today. But I’m reading Bookishly Ever After by Sarah Monzon, the final novella in the Timeless Love collection I featured a couple of weeks ago. It’s ticking all the boxes for me—contemporary romance, first person point of view, a bookish heroine, and a good friend who might become more … Anyway, here’s the first line:
The hunter had become the hunted. Poetic? Not really.
BECCA WEIDEL says
The book I’m sharing on my blog is Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey but here I’ll share the book I’m currently reading The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham: “‘She dead?’ Em heard a man’s voice from somewhere above her.” Hope you have a great weekend!
A day off is always a good idea. 🙂 And I can’t wait to read this book! I loved her story The Writing Desk. Happy reading!
