How was your week? No matter if it was good, bad, or just ok, it’s Friday! I’m looking forward to reading several books releasing this month, including the next in Candee Fick’s The Wardrobe series.
About the Book
The pampered diva is about to meet her match.
Songbird Gloria Houghton has always needed to be the center of attention, but the spotlight has shifted. Seeking fame and a fresh start, she finds a new stage in Branson, Missouri…only to risk being replaced by a manipulative rival. If Gloria can’t be the star, who is she?
Jack-of-all-trades Nick Sherwood is just one leaf on a vast family tree that includes a restaurant chef, hotel owners, and even the headline act at a family-owned theater. He’s seen how fame can blind a person with jealousy and is more than content to stay in the background thank you very much. If only he wasn’t so fascinated–and irritated–by the newest addition to the staff.
After a disaster of a first impression and financial difficulties land Gloria in the humblest of jobs—with Nick as her boss—it might be time for her to learn to sing a new song.
If you like strong families, country music, and redeemed villains, then you’ll love this next chapter in The Wardrobe series by Candee Fick.
Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest you and drop the first line in the comments. Then head over to Hoarding Books and discover what others are sharing this week!

Happy Friday! Here are the first two lines from a book I am looking forward to — Living Lies by Natalie Walters. “Just let go. The breeze lifted Lane Kent’s auburn hair from the back of her neck.”
Nicole Santana says
Today on my blog, I am sharing the first few lines from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/02/first-line-friday-85/. I am beginning chapter 20 so I will leave the first line from there.
“Abishag’s mood slipped into melancholy as the months continued on after King David’s death, a mood she had not experienced to any great length since her mother had passed into Sheol.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading!

Love that first line. Obviously, the first impression wasn’t great. On my blog, I’m featuring Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears. My current read is Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan. Since I’m about to start Chapter 5, I will share the first line from that chapter. “From a hazy woodland sleep, Davy and Douglas’s laughter along with that of the Walsh girls flooded through the open window.” May you enjoy a wonderful weekend.
BECCA WEIDEL says
Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Refuge by Ann Gabhart but my next read I’ll be starting shortly is Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens so I’ll share the first line from the prologue here: “The sun was the same, but that was all.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend too!
Becky Smith says
Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Sweet on You” by Becky Wade, and I can hardly wait to start it!
“Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he’d seen her last.”
Suzie Waltner says
You’ll love it. I just got done writing my review 🙂
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but here’s the first line from chapter two of my current read, When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell:
“There’s something romantically hopeful about having a wedding in the middle of a war.”
Beauty in the Binding says
I’m so late in getting around to everyone! I’m sharing the first lines from When He Found Me by Victoria Bylin:
“Shane Riley yanked his wet Levi’s out of a grimy washing machine, one of twenty or so in a Laundromat straight out of 1992.”
