  1. I had the pleasure of reading Holding the Fort recently. From the very first line I was captivated.

    June 1885 Wichita, Kansas

    The fumes of the gaslights at the foot of the stage protected Louisa Bell from the more noxious odors of her audience.

  2. I do enjoy Christmas stories! This sounds like it would be a good one to add to my collection. On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Gina Holder’s debut novel “Whither Shall I Go?” so do stop by and check that out! I’ll share with you here the first line of a book that has been on my TBR for several months, I really loved this book!
    “The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer’s neck stood at attention. He was behind her.”
    -Count Me In (An Emerald City Romance #1) by Mikal Dawn

  3. Happy Friday!

    My first line is from the book I’m reading next, Like Moonlight at Low Tide by Nicole Quigley….

    People never ask me the right question when they ask me what happened the beginning of my senior year. They always ask what his last words were.

    Have a great weekend!!

  4. Looks like another interesting Christmas story I need to add to my collection!

    I’m sharing about Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar on my blog today, but I’ll share a book that is on my TBR here.

    “Come on, come on. I know you’re here somewhere,” Magdalena Henry murmured, squinting through the viewfinder of her camera at the ragged line of coffee pickers sorting their day’s yield.
