First Line Fridays – Out of the Ordinary

Welcome to another installment of First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books. Today is an FLF from one of my comfort read authors. Jen’s books live on the self next to my bed.

Out of the Ordinary

Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano

“Slipping through the crowd gathered on the upper deck of a most extravagant yacht, Miss Gertrude Cadwalader drew in a breath and adopted an air of what she hoped would be taken for nonchalance.”

 

So, grab the book nearest you and comment what your first line is (with title and author, of course!) and then head over to Hoarding Books to see all of the other books/blogs featured today.

    From Fugitive Spy by Jordyn Redwood:

  6. This is my favorite Jen Turano novel so far (of the three I’ve read)! I’m sharing from Michelle Griep’s The Innkeeper’s Daughter on my blog today, so here are the first two lines from another current read, Winter in Thrush Green by Miss Read:

    “Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire.”

  7. On my blog, I’m featuring A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer. Here, I will share a line from a book I am currently reading. The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. The first line in the Preface is “One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that we were not meant for this world alone. We were meant for Heaven — and Heaven is our ultimate home. But what exactly is Heaven?” I wish you a wonderful weekend.
