First Line Fridays – 4 August 2017 – Written in the Stars (Christina Coryell)


Happy First Line Friday! I have a first line AND a pre-order special for you today from author Christina Coryell. She has a new series releasing on 22 August—Backroads—and you can pre-order the first in the series for $0.99!

WITS pre order

See?! It’s true!

My review will be coming soon, but I can assure you I was sucked into this book and the lives of these characters from the first page.

~ About the Book ~

Roundabout these parts, dirt roads don’t just get you from point A to point B. They intersect to create a maze of life often missed when outsiders drive through a sleepy town. The number on the population sign might seem insignificant, but a few short steps from the beaten path, there’s more than meets the eye.

Look a little closer… That sleek out-of-town convertible is bringing former pageant queen Brooke Langdon back into town for the first time in a decade. She’s dragging nothing with her but the hyphen in her last name. Gatlin Moore is running his tractor along the fence line, spending his days keeping up his parents’ farm instead of living out his dreams in Nashville. The sheriff is pulling into Holly Christian’s driveway, preparing to tell her that her life’s about to crumble. And Hunter Pearce, the guy everyone calls when they need something fixed? He’s racing to Holly’s place too, wondering if things are too broken to put back together.

Welcome to Hope Canyon. This is our backroads story.

~ First Line ~

Wretched, filthy dust.
Brooke had almost forgotten the way it filtered in like it was part of the sunlight itself, peppered everything it touched with a powdery sheen, and drifted in the air so thick she could taste it.

    London. May 1914. Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight. From A Name Unknown by Roseanna White! Loving this book. Can’t get enough Roseanna!

    This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room. A Season to Dance – Patricia Beal

    Neat first line!

    Now that I have a bookshelf within reach of my desk, I’m grabbing one I hope to read this year.
    “Romulus White stood motionless in the crowded ballroom, staring at a woman he’d once longed for more than his next breath of air.”
    – From this Moment, by Elizabeth Camden


  8. Bought! Thanks for sharing.

    I’m currently reading My Unexpected Hope by Tammy L Gray, which has a great first line:

    Moonlight leaked through the dirt-splotched windows of Joe’s Bar, it’s silvery rays glinting off the tumbler in front of Laila Richardson’s saddest customer.

    I’m sharing the first line from The Space Between Words on my website. I hope you stop by and check it out


  9. I really like that cover! Have a great weekend.
