    Merry Christmas!

    I just bought this book. Can’t wait to read it. Great first line!!!

    Today on my blog I am featuring Desert Duet by Debra Marvin. I’m just beginning chapter 3, so I will leave the first line from that chapter.

    “The new gray fedora, with its crisp, black grosgrain band, would be a stylish, but dismal failure at preventing sunburn.”

    I’m really enjoying this story! Happy Friday. 😊

    I read that a few weeks ago and just loved it! It was the first of her books I had read, but I’m already looking forward to the next one!

    My first line comes from Deborah Raney’s Circle of Blessings:

    Dakota Territory, 1864

    It was almost closing time, and in all of his seventeen years, James Collingwood could not remember being so bone-weary as he felt tonight.

    Merry Christmas!

      Love your first line, Phyllis. I sooo want to read Deborah Raney’s books. 🙂

      You definitely must read more of Regina’s too. I’ve loved every one I’ve read.

      Thanks for visiting. Happy New Year!

    I’ve recently finished Holding the Fort, and I loved everything about it.

    I’m sharing from All is Bright by Andrea Grigg over on my blog, a wonderful novella set in Australia … which means a summer Christmas (FYI, that’s normal for me. Not so normal for most of you, or for my Icelandic pastor and his family.)

    I’m currently reading A Sweethaven Christmas by Courtney Walsh, an new favourite author. Here’s the first line:

    “Why is that woman staring over here?” Lila shifted in the tall-backed linen-covered chair and nodded towards a blonde woman at the bar.

    I suspect this is going to be more than a Christmas story …

    Blessings as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour this week!

    This sounds like an interesting read! I enjoy historical novels, especially the late 1800s, when my maternal grandparents were born!
