It’s Friday! And what makes it even better is I have the next week off. I’m not going anywhere fun but hoping to get a lot done around my home as well as finish up edits on my manuscript for the Love Inspired Author search (it is due by August 1, so it’s crunch time).
Of course, I’ll get some extra reading time in there too. My TBR includes Susan Sleeman’s newest release in her Truth Seekers series: Dead Silence.
About the Book
A child she’ll do anything to keep.
After Kelsey Moore’s husband dies, she wants only one thing. To adopt her husband’s son who she has come to call her own. But as she begins the process that her husband had dragged his feet on, she learns a secret so shocking she begins to question everything she knows except for the love she feels for her son. The child is not her husband’s biological child, her former husband never had legal custody of the boy, and no one knows where he got the child. Fearing she might lose her son, Kelsey must find his birth mother and convince her to give up her parental rights.
A danger she’s never known.
But when Kelsey starts asking questions, she runs into a brick wall named DEA agent Devon Dunbar. Devon has been investigating an adoption/human trafficking ring with drug connections for the last six months, and he’s not about to let Kelsey interfere in his investigation. But even if Devon brings out feelings she never thought she’d experience again, and he asks her to trust him, Kelsey can’t even give him the benefit of the doubt. Not with the way her husband had lied to her and not even when her own life is on the line. If she doesn’t succeed, she could lose the one thing that means everything to her – her five-year-old son.

Today on my blog I’m sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It’s a really good book! I’m currently on chapter 25, so I’ll share the first line from there.
“If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend. ❤

Today on my blog I’m featuring the first line from No Greater Love by Gina Holder but It’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 15 here: “Kathleen tucked her legs under the steering wheel of her rental.” Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time!

How have I not read anything from Gina yet?

My first line is from The Express Bride by Kim Woodhouse:
St. Louis, March 1834
With shaking limbs, she climbed into the plush carriage awaiting her, the precious bundle in her arms worth far more than the money, trinkets and trunks of clothing she left behind.
Wonderful book. Check out the whole series of The Daughters of the Mayflower.

Happy Friday! My first line is from “Edge of Truth” by Kimberly Rose Johnson:
“The hair on Kara Nelson’s neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn’t right.”
Happy Friday! That is such an interesting premise. I’m sharing from The Crossing at Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman on my blog today. I’m only a few pages in, and this is my favorite line so far:
“Her stomach did a slow roll at the unexpected lilt of an Irish brogue.”
An intriguing opening line!
Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet W. Ferguson.
Love, like art, took on different forms with each creator.
