First Line Fridays: The Key to Love by Betsy St. Amant

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 The Key to Love by Betsy St. Amant.

"The only thing Bri Duval loved more than romance was a perfectly executed French macaron."

Have you read The Key to Love? This book is currently sitting on my tbr shelf, but I'm looking forward to reading my first book by Betsy St. Amann! Book blurb below.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:

Love doesn't always look the way we expect.

The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so that she's created her own version of the famous Parisian love-lock wall at the bakery where she works in Story, Kansas. She never expects a video involving the wall to go viral--or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He's definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for an epic love story like the one her parents had--and that certainly will not include the love-scorning Gerard.

Just when it seems the Pastry Puff is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just the bakery but the pedestal she's kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri's recipe just needs to be tweaked.

  1. Food over romance? Hmmm. ;)

    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from To Steal a Heart by Jen Turano.
    Here’s the first line from my current read, The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky:

    If she lived to be one hundred and five, Katherine Evangeline Ramsey would never understand why every debutante must begin the London social season by curtsying to the king and queen.

  2. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line to the Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano
    “It always came to this, didn’t it? Amid the glittering swirl of music and gowns, I looked up into the handsome face of Lord Cumberland and forced a smile as if nothing at all were about to happen.”

    Have a happy weekend!

  3. Happy Friday! 😊
    I'm sharing from All is Mary and Bright by Kasey Stockton on my blog: I'm currently reading The Cul-de-sac War by Melissa Ferguson. I'm just starting chapter 4 so I'll share from there.
    "Chip tried really, really hard to keep a smile from playing on his lips as Bree stomped out of the sleet and onto his concrete porch in tall black galoshes."
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend. πŸ™‚❤πŸ“š

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Into the Darkness" by Margaret Daley:

    "Hot, humid - no, make that wet - air clung to her like a second skin."

  5. My first line is from an exceptional book: The Promised Land by Elizabeth Musser:
    “I have spent twenty years carefully stitching my family’s life together, so when it suddenly starts to unravel I find myself in a tangled knot of anxiety.”

    The Key to Love was a great book!
