Sounds good, but I'm not familiar with that author!

Happy Friday! My first line (sorry but actually two lines) is from Outlaw Angel by Miralee Ferrell:

"Angel Ramirez woke with a start, her heart pounding a rolling beat in her chest. Someone was in her room."

This was my first book by her too. I'd never heard of her before reading this.

I've been meaning to read my copy, but the TBR pile keeps on growing. That's a fascinating first line. Looks like I need to bump this up higher on the list. :)

I'm sharing about "The Day the Angels Fell" by Shawn Smucker on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from the book I'm currently reading, "Under Fire" by Linda Shenton Matchell.

"Ruth Brown swiped the perspiration beads off her upper lip as her's sister's vacant coffin dropped into the ground with a dull thud."

Happy Friday!

I love the smell of magnolias!

My first line today is from the book I’m currently reading, Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz:

Drew McKinley twisted he gold wedding band around and around his finger then made a tight fist.

I’m looking forward to reading it.
