“The dark-haired woman walked from the tall stone building, her coat pulled close against an early frost. It felt good to be headed home, and even better to know that tomorrow was Sunday, a day off.”

  1. I LOVE Lori Wick books, but I don’t think I ever read the one you are sharing.

    I’m sharing the first line from Heather Gray’s An Informal Christmas on my blog today. The first line from the book I’m currently reading is “His footsteps echoing, Ryan Savage walked the first grader from the cafeteria toward the media center.” The Christmas Baby by Lisa Carter.

    1. The first line from the Christmas Baby pulls you right into the story. I like it.
      Lori Wick is one of my favorites, too. This particular novel is not historical. It’s beautifully written and I’ve read it at least twice already.
      Thanks for your comment.


  2. My first line Friday is from Christmas Magic by Cathy Kelly

    Primrose Cottage sat at the very end of Johnson’s Lane, an enchantingly pretty little house with wisteria snaking into the low roof and rose bushes clustering up to peer in the windows.

    Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday!

    I love Lori Wick novels. They are so good.

    Today, over on my blog, I am showcasing Cara Putman’s novel, Imperfect Justice. I am so excited to review this book. I have heard so many good things. On my site, I used the first lines from the prologue, so here I will share the first sentence from chapter 1.

    “Emelie Wesley glanced at her watch and frowned.”
