First Line Fridays: Love and Other Mistakes

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 line from Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate:

"Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&M's on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions."

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and you can read my full review here. Have you read this story?

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

Natalie Groves once had big dreams. But soon after her fiancรฉ, Jeremy Walters, inexplicably broke off their engagement and left town, her father was diagnosed with cancer. Now tasked with keeping her family afloat, Natalie’s grand plans have evaporated . . . and God feels very far away.
Fast-forward seven years, and Jeremy is back in Charlottesville with an infant son and years of regrets. When his niece, Lili, lands on his doorstep in need of a place to stay, Jeremy needs help—and fast.
An internship opening finally presents Natalie a chance at her dream job, but she needs a second income to work around it—and the only offer available is Jeremy’s. They could be the solutions to one another’s problems, provided they don’t kill each other in the process. When they join forces, sparks fly. But they both know there’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and that love will turn out to be the best decision—or the biggest mistake—of all. 

First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books


  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Ford” by Susan May Warren:

    “If Ford didn’t get his head in the game, they were doomed. People were going to die. Probably him.”

  2. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing from Strands of Truth by Colleen Coble on my blog. I'm currently reading The Gryphon Heist by James R. Hannibal; here are the first couple of lines: "Talia Inger clutched her side, letting her shoulder fall against the alley wall. The pain had been growing for the last half hour, threatening to overtake her as it had in Windsor."

    Have a great weekend! :)

  3. My first line is from Diamond in the Rough by Jen Turano:
    N.Y. City November 1885
    Any smidgen of hope that her entrance into N.Y. high society would be deemed a rousing success died the moment Miss Poppy Garrison’s tiara became firmly attached to the sleeve of her dance partner.

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Sweet Melody by Heidi McCahan: I am just starting chapter seven, so I will share the first couple of lines from there.

    "Rhett wiped down the espresso machine one last time then glanced at the large silver clock with chunky black numbers mounted on the white brick wall. His shift had ended a few minutes ago, and the cafe was empty."

    Happy reading! I hope you have an excellent weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ“š

  5. The Book I shared on my blog today is The Whistle Walk by Stephenia H McGee but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from chapter 9 here: "Charles's cousin slapped him on the shoulder, sending his mug of ale sloshing over the rim and into his dinner." Happy Reading! :)

  6. Here's the first line from the last book to arrive at my house, The Gryphon Heist by James R. Hannibal. "Talia Inger clutched her side, letting her shoulder fall against the alley wall."

    Have a great weekend!
