First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 8/9/19

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

First Lines

The Cotswolds, Ralin Castle
March 1913
Lady Ella Myerston knew more than everyone thought she did--and more than they thought she should.

 Page 56
Ella chuckled.  She would NOT be bothered by Lord Cayton--neither by his nearness nor his life of heartless infractions.


Also linking up to:


  1. I like Ella already. Sounds like a great weekend read to relax with.

  2. Love the cover. Wouldn't you love it if we could dress that way today? My Friday quotes for PATRON SAINTS OF NOTHING

  3. I had to giggle at the 56. Love the snark. Happy weekend!

  4. Loved that book! Today I'm sharing the first lines from Light From Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker: "Cohen Marah clears his throat quietly, more out of discomfort than the presence of any particular thing that needs clearing, and attempts to step over the body for a second time."

  5. Great first line. Definitely hooked me in.

  6. That first line is a winner. And I want to get to know Ella.

  7. A lovely cover and great first line! I wondering what she knows that she’s not supposed to know, lol.

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Starting Anew by Melanie D. Snitker.

    Lynn Crosby sat up in bed, unsure of what actually woke her up.

  8. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Choose Me" by Marion Ueckermann:

    "Today of all days, Julia Delpont needed to forget about the world."
