Happy Friday, friends! Can you believe that Christmas is only nine days away? Whether you’re enjoying a white winter season or just wishing for one, I hope the season is filled with love, laughter, and a little extra reading time.
Grab the book nearest you and drop the first line in the comments section then head to our host’s site at the Hoarding Books Blog and check out what everyone else is reading.
This week’s First Line Friday theme is Travel/Winter. The book I’m sharing with you has both of those subplots and, bonus, it takes place during the holiday season.
Don’t do it.

About the Book
Kelsey is on her way to a life do-over. And it’s not the first time. Abandoned by her drug-addict mother as a teen, she landed in a foster-care group home where she experienced faith and community—and met her best friends, Jazz and Theadora. The trio stuck together like sisters and vowed to make their lives mean something.
Now Kelsey’s pushing thirty, and her life has taken a wrong turn. Pregnant and alone after loving the wrong man, she’s on her way to making another life-changing decision when a wicked blizzard strands her outside the sleepy town of Wishing Bridge.
After being rescued from a snowbank by handsome cop, she’s embraced by the welcoming village, but she still feels upside down. Fortunately, her frantic SOS brings her besties rushing to help sort things out. They soon find that Wishing Bridge has as many secrets as Kelsey does—and she’s connected to it in ways she couldn’t have imagined.
