First Line Fridays: A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson

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 A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson:

"Anne Norris knew two things for certain. Some things could be forgiven. And some things most certainly could not."

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel when I read it last month and you can find my full review here. Have you read this story?

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

Discover a treasure worth more than all the pirate gold in the world.

Anne Norris moved to Savannah, Georgia, for a fresh start. Now her pirate-tour business is flagging and paying the rent requires more than wishful thinking. When she discovers evidence of a shipwreck off the coast of Tybee Island, she knows it could be just the boon she needs to stay afloat. She takes her findings to local museum director Carter Hale for confirmation, but things do not go as planned.

Carter is fascinated with the wreck, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task. And working with Carter means that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she'd never do again: trust a man.

  1. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first few lines of my current read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron on my blog. But, here, I’ll share the first lines of a book I recently finished – City of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    “He was an easy mark.

    Nahri smiled behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her tall. The younger one glanced anxiously down the alley while the older man – her client – sweated in the cool dawn air. Save for the men, the alley was empty; fajr had already been called and anyone devout enough for public prayer – not that there were many in her neighborhood – was already ensconced in the small mosque at the end of the street.”

    Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet Ferguson: Currently I'm finishing up Finding Miss Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano. I'll share a line from that book here. πŸ™‚

    "As we hurried through the hallway, his grip on my arm tightened until I half expected to hear my bones snap."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. πŸ™‚❤πŸ“š

    1. Finding Miss Enderly looks very good! I wish I had signed up to review it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m sharing the first line from Reunited in the Rockies by Mindy Obenhaus this week on my blog, but I’m currently reading The Amish Christmas Matchmaker by Vannetta Chapman and the first line is “Annie Kauffmann thought she’d just experienced the perfect day – business had gone well, the fall weather was exquisite and each member of her family was happy and healthy.”

  4. I enjoyed that one too!
    Sorry I didn't get around yesterday! The book I shared on my blog this week was In the Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse but I am now currently reading Out of the Ashes which is the next book in the series. I just recently started but I'll share the first line from chapter 2 here: "Gazing down at the coffin that housed his father's physical body, Jean-Michel counted the scoops of dark soil as they hit the lid and began to cover its surface." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  5. Happy Labor Day Weekend! My first line is from A Love So Real (New Hope Falls Book 1) by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Elijah McNamara gave the lightbulb one final gentle turn then glanced down at the man holding the ladder for him."

  6. Interesting line! Have a great weekend!

  7. Quite intriguing premise. I'll have to take a look at your review. Happy Reading!
