I’m housesitting again this weekend. Yes, I do this a lot but September and October have been especially busy months for friends going out of town. But a quiet house with no chores of my own and no distractions other than feeding an animal or two equals abundant reading time, and I’m hoping to make a decent dent in the rest of my October tbr!
Including this September release from Lindsey Brackett. I’m looking forward to returning to Edisto, SC in this book.
About the Book
Louisa Coultrie Halloway has returned home as caretaker for the family home on Edisto Island, but years before she left this world behind. Now she flounders to find her place. When Liam Whiting, a local professor studying tidal creek preservation, invites Lou to join his research team, she welcomes the opportunity for purpose.
David, her ex-husband, has followed Lou and their children to Edisto. As he finds his footing in this new life, their once strained relationship eases into a familiar rhythm–and he hopes for more.
But the past still has a hold on them all, especially in the presence of Grace Watson, whose son intends to marry Lou and David’s daughter. Somehow, Grace and Lou must let the past of a shared love settle between them.
In this idyllic setting, relationships deepen and shift. And once more, Lou finds herself caught between the life she’s chosen–and the love that might be meant to be.

Today on my blog I’m sharing the first couple of lines from One Christmas in Winter by Bell Renshaw: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/10/10/first-line-friday-105/. I’m currently in the middle of chapter 8, so I’ll share a line from there.

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from Code of Valor by Lynette Eason: “The broker rose from his chair and glared at the imbecile standing on the other side of the desk. ‘We paid you well to steal that boat. Where is it?'”

My first line is from Aiming For Love by Mary Connealy:
Near Bucksnort, Colorado, Near Grizzly Peak, Colorado
Josephine Nordegren floated through the woodland silent as a ghost.
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from two Carrie Anne Noble books on my blog this week. Here is the second line from The Gold-Son:
“The forest was a forbidden place, spoken of only in warnings and whispers.”
