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

Happy Friday!

Can you believe it's June already?

I spent some time with this sweet book from Heidi McCahan this week and delighted in every minute of it. So, enjoy the quick peekand if you're interested, hop over to this tour page to enter a fantastic giveaway, hosted by JustRead Tours!

First Line: Natalie McDowell paced the courtyard in front of the white clapboard barn, her stomach twisted in knots.

From Page 56: His pulse quickened at the gleam in her eye. He averted his gaze. Just friends...sharing a pizza.

One single dad plus twin toddlers. A formula for her new family?

Since his wife left, fireman Shay Campbell has focused on work and his twin toddlers. But the lovely Natalie McDowell is making him rethink that decision.
She’s great with his boys, and they adore her. But he can’t go through losing someone again. Will a dream job offer win Natalie’s heart, or does it belong to Shay and the twins?

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. This sounds like a super fun book!
    Over on my blog, I’m featuring the first line from Tara Johnson's "Engraved on the Heart". Here I'll share the first line from chapter 14.
    "Keziah wrapped the cloak around her shoulders and eased her bedroom door open, wincing at the gentle creak that echoed down the dark hallway."

    Do be sure to drop by my blog page and enter the giveaway! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “BRING ME BACK”

  3. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading shortly, Room on the Porch Swing by Amy Clipston......

    Allen Lambert rolled onto his side and yawned. His eyes blinked open , and his large but dark bedroom came into clear focus. The green numerals on his battery-operated digital clock read 2: 12. What had awakened him so early?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚

  4. This book sounds so sweet! I just finished reading A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter... "Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brook's and White's, was bored."

    Happy reading!

  5. Thank you for featuring The Firefighter's Twins!

  6. Sounds like a good romance. I like Harlequins' when I need a break from the norm. :-) Happy weekend!

  7. Happy Friday! My first line is from Mail-Order Bride Switch by Dorothy Clark:

    "Garret Stevenson kicked the snow off his boots, climbed the steps to the roofed platform of the Union Pacific Railroad station and stopped."

  8. This sounds like a good one. And that cover is so sweet:)

    My Friday 56 from Air And Ash

  9. One of my current reads is A Proposal to Die For, the first Lady Alkmene Cosy Mystery by Vivian Conroy:

    'Marry me.' The whispered words reached Lady Alkene Callender's ears just as she was reaching for the gold lighter on the mantelpiece to relight the cigarette in her ivory holder.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. I just finished this one!

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Tessa Afshar's upcoming novel, Thief of Corinth, due out in July. Here I will post the first line from the novel I'm about to begin, This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller.

    November, 1852
    Canadian Rocky Mountains

    "I am the luckiest man alive."

    Makes you want to read to find out why he's the luckiest man alive, huh?! Lol! 😊

  11. Oh this looks cute!

    I’m sharing about “No One Ever Asked” by Katie Ganshert on the blog, but I’m currently reading, “The Weaver’s Daughter” by Sarah E. Ladd.

    Alarm’s menacing sting picked Kate Dearborne’s consciousness and hurried her steps.
