Pick up a book near you. Type the first line in the comments, along with the title of the book and the author.

The book I’m featuring today is A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano.

“Miss Arabella Beckett had always been proud of the fact that she’d never ended up in jail.”

Arabella Beckett’s passion is to help the downtrodden women of America. Mr. Theodore Wilde is a private investigator on a mission for his good friend, Hamilton Beckett. When he finally tracks down Hamilton’s sister, Arabella, he is not in the most pleasant of moods. Her fiercely independent streak rubs him the wrong way. When circumstances keep bringing the two together, new feelings begin to stir.

  1. Happy Friday!

    My FLF is from Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter

    Madison McKinley scanned the crowded town hall, wondering how many of her friends and neighbors she’d have to fight to get what she came for.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh I just LOVE Jen Turano’s books! Here’s the first line from my next read:
    “Fowltown Village, Georgia
    Big Chestnut Moon (October) 1817
    Captain Marcus Buck dropped to one knee beside an Indian’s crumpled form and swept a hand down her face, lowering her lids over sightless eyes.”
    Drawn by the Frost Moon: Bitter Eyes No More by April W. Gardner

  3. On my page I shared the first line from Heather Day Gilbert’s “God’s Daughter” a fantastic story rich in viking history. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction.

    I’ll share here an old favorite of mine “Heidi”
    From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a footpath winds through green and shady meadows to the food of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below.
