Met Her Match | The Friday 56 & First Line Friday

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

Happy Friday!

I stumbled upon the Resort to Romance series last week, and I'm hooked. Susan L. Tuttle's (standalone) novella is the third of the series I've readset at a Bahamian resort during a week-long matchmaking event, the fun, romance, and adventure of it is just what I need amidst the current snow and cold (by me). I'm definitely looking forward to the release of the remaining novellas.

First Line: Pemberley Truitt hadn't come to paradise to lose anything; she'd come to find it.

From 56%: He smirked at Pem. "I would, but we have a no-touching rule."


Two old friends. One unexpected reunion.

Parasailing captain Pemberley Truitt has almost grasped a sense of home after two years in the Bahamas. While she misses her family, she’s never felt like she fits in; especially when it comes to TruLove, their family’s matchmaking business. When her brother calls and begs her help with the now struggling company, she’s happy to oblige and obtain the chance to find her place with them. But then she discovers she’ll have to work with Tobias Bradshaw. The last time she saw him, he broke her heart.

Tobias Bradshaw is ready for his love life to be as successful as his winning record in the courtroom. Which is why he agrees to his friend’s two-fold plea: professionally research Joy Island’s matchmaking service and personally be matched himself. No objections there. Until Pemberley Truitt crosses his path again, and she looks about as happy to see him as someone chosen for jury duty. It’s fine. He’s faced hostile witnesses before. Except he soon realizes he wants more than a temporary working relationship. He’s taken on difficult opposition in court before, but this time he’ll need more than a persuasive argument if he hopes to win Pem’s heart.

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.

    I'm sharing the first line from Tomorrow's First Light by Naomi Rawlings over on my blog: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/03/07/first-line-friday-78/.

    "You're really planning to get married?"

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤📚

  9. I’m sharing from Katherine Wentworth by D.E. Stevenson on my blog today. Here’s a semi-random sentence from the e-book page I’m on:

    “All around us were the rolling hills, one behind the other as far as eye could see; they were like huge green billows in a rough Atlantic gale, which had suddenly frozen into a state of immobility. Later they would be clad in heather, purple as the robes of a king.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful Friday and Weekend!

  10. Sounds like a cute read! Happy weekend!

  11. Sorry I didn't make it around earlier this weekend! This week on my blog I featured Night Road by Kristin Hannah but I'm currently reading Finally Accepted by Toni Shiloh. I'll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: "Chloe sat out on her apartment deck with a cup of herbal tea and her Bible." Hope you had a great weekend!

  12. Not my book, but I like the color palette. :)
