Reunited in the Rockies | First Line Friday + The Friday 56

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

Happy Friday!

I love a good second-chance romance, so I'm looking forward to picking up this new release from Mindy Obenhaus soon.

First Line: Twenty-four hours ago, Jude Stephens had his life figured out.

From Page 56: "No big deal. It's not like no one's ever gotten in my face before."


A fresh start…and an old love reignited?

For widow Kayla Bradshaw, restoring a historic Colorado hotel means a better life for her and her soon-to-arrive baby. But she needs construction help from Jude Stephens, the love she lost through a misunderstanding. Working with Kayla, the police officer finds himself forgiving her—and longing to rebuild her shattered confidence. But can they trust each other enough to forge a future together?

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. Pretty cover and I like that first line. Happy Friday!

  2. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finding Lady Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/22/first-line-friday-98/. I am just getting into the book, so I will share from chapter 2.

    "I clutched the edge of my seat and rested my forehead on the shuddering train window."

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

  3. Love the cover! I'd love for you to stop by and consider joining the Fall Into Reading Challenge:



  4. Harlequin are my go-to reads when I hit a slump. They're usually a great pick-me-up. :-) Happy weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from You Belong With Me by Tari Faris: "Was she really the only one left who cared about this town?"


  6. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from King's Shadow by Angela Hunt but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from chapter 23 here: "Anyone who studied Herod in the days following Aristobulus's death would not doubt his deep and sincere grief." Happy reading!

  7. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I shared the first couple of lines of a book I recently finished - The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. Here, though, I'll be sharing the first lines of one of the books I'm currently reading - Wild Savage Stars by Kristina Perez.

    "The waves mocked her.

    Discordant laughter swelled in Branwen's mind and twisted her heart. She couldn't remain on the ship one moment longer. Her skin itched."

    Wild Savage Stars is the sequel to Kristina Perez's Sweet Black Waves, which is a Tristan & Eseult retelling. I'm enjoying it so far and I hope you liked the first few lines I shared.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. I can relate to the opening statement. One minute it seems like everything is going as planned and the next . . . well, not so much. I have a feeling his story will end well by book's finish. :-) I hope you love this one. Have a great week, Hallie!

  9. I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Grace in Deep Waters by Christine Dillon.

    The radio dominated the room.

  10. I hope you're enjoying it! :)
