It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for me. I mean, I put up my first line post last Friday and it was Monday before I realized I hadn’t linked it, LOL! Oh, well. I’ll have to be sure and do that next week. I hope you are enjoying a little less intense start to summer.
I am beyond thrilled to get to spend some more time with Rachel McMillan’s Hamish, Reggie, and Nate with her newest release. And if you don’t follow her on social, you should be because this author knows her books! Want to good book recommendation? Rachel’s probably talked about one for you to check into!
About the Book
Hamish DeLuca and Regina “Reggie” Van Buren have a new case–and this one brings the war in Europe dangerously close to home.
Determined to make a life for herself, Regina “Reggie” Van Buren bid goodbye to fine china and the man her parents expected her to marry and escaped to Boston. What she never expected to discover was that an unknown talent for sleuthing would develop into a business partnership with the handsome, yet shy, Hamish DeLuca.
Their latest case arrives when Errol Parker, the leading base stealer in the Boston farm leagues, hires Hamish and Reggie to investigate what the Boston police shove off as a series of harmless pranks. Errol believes these are hate crimes linked to the outbreak of war in Europe, and he’s afraid for his life. Hamish and Reggie quickly find themselves in the midst of an escalating series of crimes that seem to link Boston to Hamish’s hometown of Toronto.
When an act of violence hits too close to home, Hamish is driven to a decision that may sever him from Reggie forever . . . even more than her engagement to wealthy architect Vaughan Vanderlaan.

Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund. Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 4 of the same book.
“Mercy stood in the long line of tenants waiting for a turn at the water spigot at the back of the building.”
Well that is a way to grab your attention at the start of a book!!!

“The sun was almost overhead by the time Connor has a moment to breathe.”
Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!
I love the vintage cover! Happy reading!

I’m featuring a novel by Crystal L. Barnes on my blog called Husband Hunting. My current read is Prudie’s Mountain Man by Elaine Manders. I’m about to start chapter 5, so I will share the first line from that chapter. “Prudie sneaked a sidelong glance at her intended.” I hope you will enjoy a fantastic weekend!

I love her covers, so cool! I’m currently reading The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze… “With a furtive pat, Gemma Lyfeld blotted her nerve-damp palms on her white muslin gown.”

Today on my blog I featured A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund which I just finished last night. My next read is going to be Where Hope Begins by Catherine West so I’ll share that first line here: “My husband is leaving me.” I think I’m in for an intense read! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some quality reading time 🙂
I’m so looking forward to more Hamish, Reggie, and Luca! I’m sharing from Kelly Irvin’s Through the Autumn Air on my blog today. Here is the second sentence:
“Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.”
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Weekend! My first line is from “When Love Blossoms: Book 2 of the Kindred Lake Series” by Elaine Stock:
“Kierra Madden grasped the phone tighter in both disbelief and gratitude.”
