First Lines Friday & 56 ~ 10/11/19

https://hoardingbooksblog.wordpress.com/


I'm still reading "Gunpowder Tea" as I've been busy creating new items for my Etsy shop.  If you'd like to check it out here is the link  www.etsy.com/shop/collettakay .  The lines are NEW!  Thanks :)

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

 

 
First Lines


Pinkerton National Detective Agency:  We never sleep.
 
NEW ORLEANS, 1897
 
Miranda Hunt drew a linen handkerchief from the sleeve of her black mourning frock and dabbed the corner of her eye.

 Page 56
 
Miss Walker took a sip of the hot beverage and wrinkled her nose before pushing the cup away.

"Dishwater couldn't taste worse."

    "I have no idea who or what should get Charity's fifteen hundred dollars."

  6. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first couple of lines from One Christmas in Winter by Bell Renshaw: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/10/10/first-line-friday-105/. I'm currently in the middle of chapter 8, so I'll share a line from there.

    "Hoyt hadn't thought this through."

    Have a great weekend! 🙂❤📖

  7. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from Code of Valor by Lynette Eason: "The broker rose from his chair and glared at the imbecile standing on the other side of the desk. 'We paid you well to steal that boat. Where is it?'"

  8. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from two Carrie Anne Noble books on my blog this week. Here is the second line from The Gold-Son:

    “The forest was a forbidden place, spoken of only in warnings and whispers.”
