Happy Friday, everyone! I’ve enjoyed a week off which means lots of reading and making a small dent in my TBR! But yesterday I didn’t read at all because I went to the Art of Writing Conference and the Christy Awards here in Nashville. What a wonderful time of visiting with friends, authors, and fellow bloggers!
Did you know that they announce the winner of the Christy Award in each category by reading the first line? There was one line that was read twice as it won in it’s category and Book of the Year. So I thought I’d share it here today as well.
About the Book
After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. However, when John, an adoptee, is diagnosed with an inherited condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his ancestry.
John enlists Nora’s help to uncover the identity of his birth mother, and as they work side by side, this pair of opposites begins to suspect that they just might be a perfect match. But can their hope for a future survive their wounds from the past?
Congratulations to Becky Wade and all of the finalists and winners! Now it’s your turn to grab the book nearest you and share the first line in the comments. Then head over to Hoarding Books to check out the others!
