Welcome to another installment of First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books.
So our theme this week is “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” which really isn’t working out so much for spring this year. Here in Tennessee we’re flipping back and forth between warm and cold (sometimes all within the same day). This theme is actually pretty versatile as we could have gone with the animals in there, but I decided to take the first line from a book with a weather-related title.
This one is from Janet Ferguson’s Magnolia Storms.
What are you reading now? Share the first line in the comments below then head on over to Hoarding Books and see what other first lines caught someone’s attention this week.

Opening the door was the hardest part. Not that she expected to find it locked, because no one out here in this part of Texas ever locked anything. The Countess and the Cowboy by Kathleen Y’Barbo from the Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers Romance Collection
Happy Friday and Happy Reading! 🙂
Here in Michigan, we’ve been enjoying some sunny, above-freezing weather. Great for long walks! The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer. I love all the books I’ve read of hers. Here, I will share the first line of chapter 17 from the book I’m currently reading, The Social Tutor by Sally Britton. “Thomas waited for her arrival, this time on Christine’s side of the brook, his breath turning to fog in the cold air.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

I’m sharing the first two lines from A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from the novel I’m currently reading, Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn.
“Homicide investigator Ryan Parker flashed a thumbs-up to his dive buddy and fellow homicide investigator, Gabe Chavez.”
Let me tell you, that thumbs-up quickly becomes a thumbs-down!!! This book is really gripping. I can’t figure it out!!! Happy Friday.

Happy Friday! My first line is from Bridgette by Patricia PacJac Carroll:
“Bridgette, get up. The sun and the rest of us have been working for three hours.”

My first lines are “Poppy!” Jamie came rushing out of the office and into the ktichen. The grin on his face made my heart flutter, just like it always did, which meant I’d been a mess of flutters since the day I met him five years ago.
It’s from The Birthday List by Devney Perry
Have a great weekend!
I’m sharing from Mary Connealy’s Now and Forever on my blog today, but here are the first lines of another second in series book with a heroine that loves tending her sheep, Beloved Hope by Tracie Peterson:
Oregon City, Oregon
“You can’t be serious.” Hope Flanagan looked at the man who sat opposite her at her sister and brother-in-law’s kitchen table. “You expect me to testify at the Cayuse trial.”
