First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 9/27/19

Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:


First Lines

Looking for hardworking, professional woman
of good character and pleasant disposition
willing to learn the ranching business in Arizona Territory.
Must be single and prepared to remain
so now and forevermore.

  Annie giggled at the thought, which garnered a look of rebuke from the direction of the bed.  Miss Walker's expression was every bit as intimidating as the shotgun by her side.


P.S. I'd love for you to come join in the Fall Into Reading Challenge!

Also linking up to:


  1. Sounds different for that era, I'm intrigued!! I added you to the linky. Happy weekend!

  2. Over on my blog this week, I’m sharing the first line from Jody Hedlund’s newest YA book, Foremost.
    Here I’ll share the first line of a book I’m nearly finished reading, Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy.
    “Josephine Nordegren floated through the woodland silent as a ghost.”

  3. Now that line makes me want to pick up the book and read it!! Happy Friday!

  4. I love that intro! And your 56 excerpt has me even more curious. I hope you are enjoying Gunpowder Tea, Colletta. Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I'm currently reading Freedom's Kiss by Sarah Monzon. I'm just starting chapter 29, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "Florida, 1832
    Winnie felt like a cow being led to slaughter, just waiting her turn to stand before the butcher with a club in his hand."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time. 🙂❤📖

  6. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Least Expected" by Autumn Macarthur:

    "Maggie Golding ran her fingers through her multi-coloured hair, planted her hands on her hips, and took a step back to examine the latest window display she'd created for Pettett and Mayfields London department store."
