First Line Friday #16

Welcome to First Line Friday!

I apologize. I know it’s been a long time. My family and I recently made the move from Florida to Texas, and man life’s been crazy! But things are settling down, and my love for books has only grown.

So for this week’s First Line Friday, we’re going to take a peek at the first line from one of my favorite author’s newest releases: For the Love of Liberty. To see my thoughts, check out my review.

A Match Made in Heaven?
Or Someplace a Whole Lot Warmer?

She’s stubborn, educated, and looking
to give women the vote.
He’s bullheaded, successful, and looking
to give her a piece of his mind.
But when things heat up, they just may give each other
a piece of their hearts.

First Lines

“‘Abominable.’

Miss Willoughby’s voice rang clear and concise from the back of the schoolroom, spelling primer in hand as she offered fourteen-year-old Liberty ‘Libby’ O’Shea an encouraging smile. ‘Since everyone has been eliminated from the spelling bee except you and Mr. McShane, Miss O’Shea, we’ll need both the definition and usage of the word in a sentence in addition to the spelling, all right?'”

And from there, the chemistry and the tension just ramp up.
