First Line Fridays – 4/6/18

First Line Fridays

This is the first time I’m participating in First Line Fridays which is hosted by Hoarding Books.

This week’s themes: floral, spring, etc.

Here’s the first line:

Spring, 1386. Hagenheim. The Harz Mountains, Lower Saxony.

The townspeople of Hagenheim craned their necks as they peered down the cobblestone street, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Duke of Hagenheim’s two handsome sons.

And here’s the book it’s from:


Not only is this book set in the springtime, but also the main character’s name is the name of a flower: Rose.

You can visit this post if you’d like to read my full review of the book.

What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m sharing the first line from Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller on my blog today—a wonderful Christian Regency romance.

    But I’m going to share the first line from the book I’m currently reading – an advance copy of Falling for You by Becky Wade. It doesn’t release until 1 May, but I loved True to You and I have no self-control when it comes to Becky Wade, so here are the opening lines:

    “I discovered a secret.”
    Corbin Stewart looked sharply at twelve-year-old Charlotte Dixon. “What kind of a secret?”

    1. I love that first line! I hadn’t heard of any of those books before. They look really good! I’m especially interested in the books by Becky Wade. I’ll have to see if I can find True to You at the library. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s book The Kremlin Conspiracy, which my husband grabbed and read before I could:

    “Louisa Sherbatov had just turned six, but she would never turn seven.”

    1. Oooh, great first line!! I’ve heard of that author but I haven’t read any of his books yet. Thank you for sharing! Have a great weekend!

  3. Melanie Dickerson’s books are so entertaining! I’m sharing from The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim on my blog today, so here’s the first line from the prologue of a recent read, Julie Cantrell’s Perennials:

    “Summer 1979
    Oxford, Mississippi

    “Four!” Bitsy cheers, twisting the lid to her firefly jar.”

    Happy Friday!

    1. I almost chose Perennials for this post! I haven’t read it yet, but it looks like a great book! Thank you for commenting, and have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    That was the first book of Melanie Dickerson’s that I read! Great read! The book I’m sharing on my blog is A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron but I’m sharing the book I’m currently (re)reading to get ready for the new Hallmark movie this weekend Once Upon A Prince by Rachel Hauck: “What did he say? The storm gusts moving over the Atlantic must have garbled his words.” Hope you have a blessed weekend!

    1. It’s the first book of hers that I read, too! I’ve been looking forward to the Hallmark movie tonight, and I have seen that book and wanted to read it, but I didn’t realize the movie was based on that book. Now I’m doubly excited for the movie! And I love that first line, too! Thanks so much for sharing! Have a blessed weekend, as well!
