Who got up early and hit the sales for Black Friday? I did not. I don’t usually like shopping and throw in the day after Thanksgiving crowds, there’s just no way. Besides, I’d rather be reading!! Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you are spending the time with those you love.
This week’s theme is gratitude, thankfulness, feasting or family gatherings. I’m sharing the series finale in Dana Mentink’s Gold Country Cowboys series as the Thorn family bands together to fight for those they love. Plus those Love Inspired authors know how to do Christmas suspense!!
About the Book
A witness with amnesia
Can she trust this Gold Country Cowboy with her life?Tracy Wilson witnessed a murder–but after a head injury, she can’t remember what she saw. Now someone plans to silence her for good, and only cowboy Keegan Thorn believes her. With a killer after her at Christmas, Tracy is running out of time to remember…and falling dangerously hard for the cowboy who could break her heart.

On my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I’m currently reading the Amish Midwife’s secret by Rachel J Good so I’ll share the line from my current chapter (10) here: “By the time Leah arrived at the Groffs’, Sharon had already completed the checkup.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

Happy Black Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring A Holiday By Gaslight by Mimi Matthews. Here I will share the first line from the book I’m currently reading, A Handcarved Christmas by Cynthia Hickey which takes place in 1880 Montana. “Laura Worth wrapped her wool shawl tighter around her shoulders and peered out the train station window.” Enjoy your weekend and happy reading!

My first lines come from Hearts In Harmony by Beth Wiseman……
I had never been to an Englisch funeral before today. I’ve only been to one funeral , when Uncle John died last year. But I’m only ten so maybe that’s why. This funeral was different from Uncle John’s. There were a lot of flowers inside the church and people singing.
Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! My first line (and 3rd line because I love this line) is from “Reaching Her Heart” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:
“Tristan Callaghan moved to the side of the long hallway to let a young couple pass, giving them a smile and a nod before continuing on… What on earth had possessed him to agree to teach Sunday School to seven and eight-year-old boys?”
I love amnesia stories, so I’ll definitely check this out!
I’m sharing the first line from Ashmore by Angela Curtis on my blog today. It’s her debut novel, and it’s based on the real-life journey her ancestors took when emigrating from England to New Zealand. It makes me thankful for our modern world where we have cleaner and faster methods of transport!
“One half-witted decision changed Lillie Curtis’ life forever. Unfortunately, that decision had not been her own.”
Have a great weekend.
This is the second time I’ve seen this book featured this week! I love this author 🙂
