First Line Fridays – Love In Three Quarter Time

Welcome to another installment of First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books. Today is a special installment. As far as I know this is the first feature of this story in a FLF. I LOVE it when authors’ book babies that they’ve been dreaming of for a long time finally come to be. Big congratulations to my friend Rachel. I’m so glad you found the courage to share Klaus with the world.

 

Love in Three Quarter cover

Love in Three Quarter Time by Rachel McMillan

“If Evelyn Watt’s life were projected on a movie screen, it might look like the strand of Laura Linney’s story in Love, Actually.”

But, I have to say, guys, that while this is First Line Friday, I absolutely adored the last paragraph. They don’t get enough love, and this one is so full of it. Read it so you can see what I mean!

  2. Love Actually is one of my most favorite movies ever! I will definitely have to check this book out.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog I am showcasing Naomi Rawlings’s novel Love’s Bright Tomorrow. Here I will share the first line from the novel I am currently reading, Mary and Bright by Shannon Graupman.

    “Mary Bradford’s heart raced as she sat on the edge of her king sized bed — her gaze affixed on the single white sheet of paper resting on the nightstand.”

    Happy Friday! Here are my lines “On a drowsy Sunday afternoon, a man in a long dark coat hesitated in front or a house on a tree-lined street. He hadn’t parked a car, nor had he come by taxi. No neighbor had seen him strolling along the sidewalk. He simply appeared, as if stepping between one shadow and the next.”

    My first line is from a book but Andrea Boeshaar: My Heat Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley. Part of the first page fourth paragraph down.

    A light breeze cooled the sudden perspiration on Mac’s brow. The war was over. Besides, Father was counting on him to make something of himself— prove the gossips wrong— in this new land in the Shenandoah Valley.

  5. I thought this was a historical romance based on the cover, but that first line is definitely contemporary. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m sharing the first line from Aint Misbehaving by Marji Laine on my blog. I’m currently reading My Sister’s Prayer by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. It’s the middle book in a trilogy and I really shouldn’t have read the third book first, because it did ruin some of the big-picture suspense. Here’s the first line:

    The cry for help came as I was coasting toward the bicycle rack at the far end of the story.

    Happy Friday! (What’s left!) My first lines (sorry, but I included the 2nd) is from These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart:

    “Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared.”

  8. can’t wait to read this one!

    My current first line is from Cathy Gohlke’s Until We Find Home: “Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres.”

    Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering – “Madeline Farthering gripped her husband’s arm a little more tightly as they made their way through the mass of people crowding Waverly Station, certain that if they were separated in this chaos she’d never be able to find him again.”

    For the contest, yes, I’ve won contests, but I think only one from a blog. That prize was a nice ceramic loose tea tumbler. Other book-related contest prizes have been books, candy, popcorn, bookmarks and a t-shirt. Thanks for the chance to win.
