First Line Fridays: Cupcakes & Crumbs by Melissa McClone

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 Cupcakes & Crumbs by Melissa McClone.

"As the sun climbed above the horizon, strokes of lavender, orange, and pink painted the awakening sky."

Have you read Cupcakes & Crumbs? If not, check out the book blurb below and read my review.

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

Happy reading!



About the Book:

After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together.

When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it.

To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem.

Juliet fears her marriage is about to crumble. She’s in panic mode, trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife.

Since her husband's death nine years ago, working in the cupcake shop has saved Missy. Now, she might lose the job she loves.

Despite Nell’s insistence she’s happy being single, her meddling mom won’t stop playing matchmaker.

And life coach Selena has found fame and fortune fixing everyone else’s lives. Something, however, is missing in hers, and she hasn’t a clue what it might be.

They want to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.

  1. Happy Friday! πŸ™‚
    Today I'm sharing the first line from Julie Klassen's novella, An Ivy Hill Christmas: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/12/04/first-line-friday-164/. It's a great story. I highly recommend it. Currently, though, I'm reading To Dwell Among Cedars by Connilyn Cossette, so I'll share a line from there:
    "Ronen had changed, although it had taken me no more than a few moments to recognize him when he'd arrived."
    Hope you have an excellent weekend! πŸ™‚❤πŸ“š

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Fortune's Fall by Katherine Barger.
    "The buzzer's ear-splitting wail pierces the silent auditorium."

  3. My first line comes from Linda Thompson’s new book: The Mulberry Leaf Whispers:
    Saturday April 18, 1942 Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan
    Sub-Lieutenant Matsuura Akira paced the open bridge of Nitto Maru. He had drawn the watch, as usual.
