The Friday 56 & First Line Friday | Christmas at the Red Door Inn

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

Happy Friday!

Well, I've been spotlighting Christmas books for weeks now, so of course, I have no intention of stopping now that Thanksgiving has officially passed.

This week, I discovered that Liz Johnson is adding a holiday novella to her Prince Edward Island Dreams series (which I loved!). I'm excited to get started on this snowy romance as soon as I can.


First Line: Brooke Kane knew better than to venture far from home when there was threat of a blizzard.

From 56%: The tree really was uglybut festive too.




ABOUT THE BOOK
One blizzard. Two friends. Three days to fall in love.

Lifelong islander Brooke Kane doesn’t know what to do with her college degree, her dreams, or her future, but she knows better than to venture far from home when there’s a storm brewing. But a promise to check on Rose’s Red Door Inn prompts Brooke to venture out. By the time she arrives at the inn, the snow is knee-deep and visibility almost non-existent. She settles in to spend a few days alone at the inn until a familiar figure appears at the door.

Father Chuck O’Flannigan has never felt like a bigger fool. So focused on his recent decision to leave Prince Edward Island, he’s caught unaware by the blizzard while on a walk. He can only see the inn’s red door, a promise of safety. But when he discovers that Brooke—the only woman who could tempt him to stay on the island—is also taking refuge there, he knows he’s in trouble.

With Christmas only three days away, Brooke is determined that they’ll celebrate—even if it’s just the two of them. Happy to play Scrooge to her Tiny Tim, Chuck wiles away his hours dreaming of a return to Ireland—praying that God may have plans for him there. After all, God seems to have forgotten him in North Rustico. But as Brooke brings Christmas to life, her joy makes him wonder if God may not have forgotten him. In fact, God may have big plans for both of them—if they can only survive Christmas at the Red Door Inn.

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.

  2. Sounds interesting. I don't usually read many Christmas books. This week I am featuring Serpentine by Laurell K. Hamilton - the latest in a long-running urban fantasy series. Happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Hearts In Harmony by Beth Wiseman......

    I had never been to an Englisch funeral before today. I’ve only been to one funeral , when Uncle John died last year. But I’m only ten so maybe that’s why. This funeral was different from Uncle John’s. There were a lot of flowers inside the church and people singing.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊💕

  5. Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I'm currently reading the Amish Midwife's secret by Rachel J Good so I'll share the line from my current chapter (10) here: "By the time Leah arrived at the Groffs', Sharon had already completed the checkup." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  7. Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! My first line (and 3rd line because I love this line) is from “Reaching Her Heart” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Tristan Callaghan moved to the side of the long hallway to let a young couple pass, giving them a smile and a nod before continuing on… What on earth had possessed him to agree to teach Sunday School to seven and eight-year-old boys?”
