I keep hearing that it’s going to cool down here next week, finally. These record-breaking highs in the 90s in October are too much. Can’t wait for crisp, cool fall weather and fires and hot drinks and sweaters and scarves. Can you tell I’m a fan of fall?
In Mary Connealy’s October release, I can enjoy some fictional cool weather since this series is set in the Colorado mountains. I’m a fan of this cover too, and after reading the book, I can see Jo as this cover model.
About the Book
Josephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world–a world she’s been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls’ secret home, her older sister especially is frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.
David’s parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. David’s father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?

Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m sharing the anthology Romancing the Rancher’s Daughter. Here I will share the first line in Chapter 21 in the second story, A Measure of Mercy by Debra E. Marvin. When dampness kept Witt’s shirt stuck to his back, and a much more feminine glisten shone on Addy’s brow, he motioned her away from the dance floor in favor of refreshments and a much-needed break. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from Simply Starstruck by Aspen Hadley: “It’s funny in life how you never recognize a big moment when it’s actually happening.”
BECCA WEIDEL says
I’m reading this one right now! I am not a fan of the colder temperatures. I had to turn my heat on and it makes me sad 🙁
Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I’m currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: “Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

Today I’m sharing the first line from Son of the Father by Andrew Stone: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/10/03/first-line-friday-104/. I’m currently reading Fire Storm by Nancy Mehl so I’ll share a line from there.
“When Jason came over to fix supper that night, Kaely told him about the assignment with Omaha.”
I hope you have a relaxing weekend. ❤
Such a fun read! Have a wonderful weekend!
