I just love this quote from The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion, don’t you? But, it’s not the first line. Thanks to Valerie (via Paula) for the image!
Welcome to another installment of First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books. Today’s first line is from:
The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion
by Valerie Comer
“So how many households does that make?” Kade Delgado shifted his sleeping toddler in his arms, but Jericho snored on.”
This is also available as part of a boxed set in A Christmas to Remember: Eight Christian Romances Celebrating the Gift of Christmas.
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.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Cowboy Santa: helping his ex-fiancée have a merry little Christmas…When Kade Delgado joins his buddies in a Cowboy Santa program to shower Christmas blessings on old folks and single moms, he doesn’t expect his former fiancée to return to Saddle Springs, in need and with a child in tow. Does God really expect him to treat Cheri the same as the others on his new Christmas list?Cheri Mackenzie has never forgiven herself for the pain she caused Kade by fleeing a week before their wedding, but undoing the past is impossible. Circumstances force her back to her aging grandparents’ Montana ranch, where Kade, now a widower with a toddler, is making himself cheerfully indispensable. When she receives kindness instead of the hostility she surely deserves, she can’t help but pray for a Christmas reunion with the cowboy she’s never stopped loving.Is there any hope for a second chance at love?

My first lines come from Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh….
This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it. Lyndie St. James stood in the hallway of Judson Music Studios, willing herself to open the door. A door that, in the past few months , had come to mean so much, thanks to constant reminders that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!🍁🙃💕
This one is definitely on my TBR!
Thank you so much for sharing, Kat, I absolutely love this story, and the entire box set is great!
“If the Etonville Little Theatre was doing “Carousel” instead of “Bye, Bye Birdie”, I could sing “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over”” Lola Tripper said, humming and sipping a cup of coffee in a back booth of the Windjammer restaurant, which also functioned as my office.
JUST IN TIME by Suzanne Trauth

While it paints a good picture in my mind, that is a long first sentence!
Happy Friday! My first line on the blog is from Susan May Warren’s Wait for Me.
Here’s the first line of the book I’m starting later TONIGHT! “Thomas knew the moment Amber Sterlington entered Almack’s ballroom.” –A Heart Revealed by Josi S. Kilpack.
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from An Unseemly Wife by E.B. Moore on my blog. Here is the first sentence from Chapter 6:
“On and on, they rode alone through the woods, between the branches, a flaming sun setting thin clouds aglow, until one night the sky cleared to a deep black studded with uncountable white points.”
This sounds like a fun read, although it seems to be a little outside of Valerie Comer’s usual plots (and covers).
I’m sharing from Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears over on my blog, and I’m currently reading another in the same genre – The Lieutenant’s Bargain by Regina Jennings. Two great books from two great Christian Western romance writers! Here’s the first line from The Lieutenant’s Bargain:
“If she’d known there were so few washrooms in Indian Territory, Hattie Walker wouldn’t have drunk three cups of coffee at breakfast that morning.”
LOL. That’s a great first line!
