First Line Fridays: Lake Season by Denise Hunter

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 Lake Season by Denise Hunter:

"The house was eerily silent."

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your first line below.  😄

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

A lost letter, a new love, and old secrets beckon this summer at the Bluebell Inn.
When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic Bluebell, North Carolina home back into an inn. The situation would just be temporary—three years at the most—then they would sell the inn and Molly could get back to chasing her own dreams.
Adam Bradford (a.k.a. bestselling author Nathaniel Quinn) is a reclusive novelist with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to the setting of his next book, a North Carolina lake town. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.
Molly and Adam strike up an instant friendship. When Molly finds a long-lost letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But Adam has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.

  1. I loved Lake Season! Right now I'm reading If for Any Reason by Courtney Walsh. I'm just starting chapter 19, so here's the first line of that chapter: " July 1989 -- Nearly three full days passed before Isabelle could escape long enough to find JD."

    Happy reading!

    1. I haven't read any of Courtney Walsh's books, but I hear they are so good! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from More Than We Remember by Christina Suzann Nelson: It's definitely an emotional read! I'm currently on chapter 16, so I will share the first line from there.
    "'Are you kidding me?' Emilia slammed down the phone."

    I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with fun reading time!

  4. I’m sharing the first line from The Bright Unknown on my blog today, however I’m currently reading Her Rocky Mountain Hope by Mindy Obenhaus so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Boy, he needed a haircut.” I hope you have a good weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from Walkabout, by James Vance Marshall on my blog today. Here is the first line from chapter 2:

    “The advance guard of sunlight filtered into the gully, turning the night to powdery opaqueness.”

  6. Happy Friday!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green but the book I'm just about to start is The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay so I'll share that first line here: "People parted around us in the courtyard." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  7. Just won this Denise Hunter book.
    My first line is from End Game by Rachel Dylan:
    “I think they may be keeping dead bodies in their condo.”
