First Lines Friday ~ 7/19/19

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

First Lines

10 June, 1773
Rivenshire, England
In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copes of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened, his daughters received them all.

 Page 56
 She paused beside the captain.  "I refuse to dine with a man who threatens me and mine."

P.S. I hope you can stop by my ETSY SHOP!

  2. Great snippets. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Kate’s Song” by Jennifer Beckstrand:

    “Is he dead? Please tell me he’s not dead!”

  4. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham. Featuring the dead letter office and some dynamic characters, it is a wonderful story! I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  5. I really liked Keturah. I have Verity on my Kindle -- just need to make time to read it!

    I am currently reading an ARC of The Bridge Between by Lindsey Brackett. Here's the first line -- She still had trouble sleeping.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Great snippets and cover! Happy weekend!

  7. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I'm sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller:

    Today, I'm currently reading The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden. It's an excellent story that I highly recommend! I'm just starting chapter 34, so I'll share from there.

    "Gray rarely took the time to read The Washington Post first thing in the morning."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend!!! 😀❤📚

  8. Though the extracts are not catchy, I just loved the cover and hope it's a good read!

  9. Here's the first line from my current read, Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh: "Carly Collins hated running late."

  10. Happy Friday! Since I’m sharing from chapter 1 of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham on my blog today, here is the first line from the prologue:

    “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellowed papers closer and pressed her lips to them.”

  11. I loved this book!

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I'm currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: "Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! :)

  12. An interesting opening! I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.

  13. Hope you're enjoying it. Happy reading!
