First Lines Friday ~ 6/22/18

https://hoardingbooksblog.wordpress.com/


Today's "First Lines" are from:

 
 
How in the world had rain earned such a romantic rep?

Kate Walker tipped the collar of her jacket and burrowed her chin against the chilly afternoon's heavy breathing.  Chicago's usual sticky late-August warmth had gone into hiding--saggy clouds and a veil of gray creating the perfect backdrop for the swoon-worthy embrace playing out in front of her.

The dashing hero holding tight to his girl in the middle of the park, swinging her in a circle as she laughed with abandon.  Oblivious to the rainfall, the both of them.  And then...the most magic moment of all.

The kiss.

  7. Happy Friday!!!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from As The Tide Comes In by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall. Here I will share the first line from a short story I'm currently reading. It's called "A Lady of Scandal" by Heather B. Moore. It's very good.

    "Hugh couldn't help but think of his biggest question about Anthony and Lady Bridget. Why had Anthony offered to marry her?"

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with good reading time!
