First Line Fridays: When He Found Me by Victoria Bylin

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from When He Found Me by Victoria Bylin:

"Shane Riley yanked his wet Levi's out of a grimy washing machine, one of twenty or so in a Laundromat straight out of 1992."

Have you read this book?

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

Love Discovered . . . Hope Renewed

Once a strong Christian, third baseman Shane Riley lost his faith the night he injured his knee in a freak car accident. Determined to return to professional baseball and to find the sister he treated badly, Shane retreats to Refuge, Wyoming. There he meets Melissa June “MJ” Townsend, a single mom battling the virus that causes cervical cancer. 

MJ wants nothing to do with the handsome athlete—no doubt a womanizer considering the stories in the news. But when a mistake results in Shane renting her garage apartment, they become friends. That friendship blossoms into something deep and pure, leaving MJ with a painful secret to tell. Even more complicated, she discovers an unexpected tie to Shane’s missing sister—a wounded woman who wants nothing to do with the perfect brother who scorned her.

  1. Loved that book! Here are the first two lines from a book I am looking forward to -- Living Lies by Natalie Walters. "Just let go. The breeze lifted Lane Kent's auburn hair from the back of her neck."

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first few lines from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith: I am beginning chapter 20 so I will leave the first line from there.

    "Abishag's mood slipped into melancholy as the months continued on after King David's death, a mood she had not experienced to any great length since her mother had passed into Sheol."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! 🙂💚📚

    1. I've heard so much about that book lately! Happy reading!

  3. Looks interesting!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Refuge by Ann Gabhart but my next read I'll be starting shortly is Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens so I'll share the first line from the prologue here: "The sun was the same, but that was all." Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!

  4. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Sweet on You" by Becky Wade, and I can hardly wait to start it!

    "Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he'd seen her last."

    1. Loved all the books in that series, especially Sweet on You. Happy Reading!

  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but here’s the first line from chapter two of my current read, When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell:

    “There’s something romantically hopeful about having a wedding in the middle of a war.”

  6. This book sounds really good, and I love the first line!

    I had shared the first line from Becky Wade's Sweet on You on my blog, "Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he'd seen her last."

    Hope you're having a great week!

  7. I just finished a fantastic book. The Refuge by Ann Gabhart.
