The Friday 56 & First Line Friday | The Saturday Night Supper Club

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

I am so ready for the weekendand to spend some quality time with this delicious book. 
Enjoy the peek!

First Line: Three hours into Saturday night dinner service and she was already running on fumes.

From Page 56: She would probably run him over with her car, though, if he tried to catch her outside the restaurant, and she wouldn't thank him for interrupting in the middle of dinner rush.

Denver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she’s dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back … even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.

Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer’s block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn’t expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.

Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel’s tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver’s most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there’s life--and love--outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.
And be sure to stop by Hoarding Books and Freda's Voice for a peek into other books.


  1. I loved The Saturday Night Supper Club so much!

    I’m sharing about “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky on the blog today. My first line will come from “Keturah” by Lisa T. Bergren since it’s the closest book to me.

    10 June, 1773
    Rivenshire, England

    In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened. his daughters received them all.

    Happy Friday!

  2. I love books about cooking. And this is new to me, so onto my teetering TBR it goes.
    Here is my Friday 56: https://coffeeandcatsblog.wordpress.com/2018/02/23/friday-56-57/

  3. Such a fabulous read!

    This is the one I just started:

    Not much had changed about Laurel Cove, North Carolina in the ten years since Livy Johnson had last visited. (Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger)

    Happy Friday

  4. My first line us from Fugitive Spy by Jordyn Redwood:
    As CIA spy Casper English crossed the threshold into the abandoned home, the faint wheezes of a man teetering on death whispered just above the gusting snowstorm.

  5. The cover had me salivating! Looks like a book I would thoroughly enjoy! Happy weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah by Angie Dicken:

    “Leanna McKee pushed her hat by its brim, hiding her face as best she could. She would not let him see her.”

  7. This one sounds like a winner from a couple of the above comments! I hope you enjoy it, and I hope Rachel Bishop's reputation is restored by the end. :-) Have a great weekend.

  8. I'm sharing from Michelle Griep's The Innkeeper's Daughter on my blog today (and the Inn's cook has been fired!), so here are the first lines of another current read, Winter in Thrush Green:

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

    Happy reading!

  9. 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.

  10. That cover's making me hungry! :)

  11. Happy Saturday!!!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first lines from Lisa T. Bergren's fantastic novel, Keturah. Here, I will share the first lines from the novel I'm currently reading, A Brush with the Beast by Richard Sones.

    "Good night, Mr. D," chirped an elderly secretary as Nick left his office on another late night. Slim, young, black briefcase in hand, he walked briskly toward the door.

  12. Very cool book cover--happy Thursday!
