First Line Friday - Where Grace Appears

September 23, 2022


Happy Friday!! Fall is here!! I don't know about you but it finally feels like fall outdoors outside and I am all about it! Fall decor has finally come out and it's nice to see different colors around me. Now if the trees would cooperate and start changing colors that would be great! The kids and I went apple picking so we will be baking some this weekend. There is definitely nothing better than the smell of baked goods! 

It is First Line Friday hosted by Reading is My Superpower. Today my first line is coming from Where Grace Appears by Heidi Chiavaroli. This is our book club pick for this month! I am excited to chat not only with my bookish friends but also with Heidi herself! If you want to join in you can either follow us on Instagram @inspiredreadersbookclub or join our Facebook group: Inspired Readers Book Club (yes, total shameless plug! I am one of the co-hosts so I would love for you to join in!)

Anyways here is my first line! 

Now it's your turn! Grab the closest book to you and drop the first line in the comments!


  1. This is one I have wanted to read for a while. It's a great first line and so true!! Have a great weekend!

  2. What a great opener! I have this one on my TBR list and hope to read it soon. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  3. My first line comes from As Secret as the Night by Danielle Grandinetti:
    December 6, 1933. Chicago
    Lucia Critelli lowered her head against the bitter wind that raced the cars down the city street.

  4. I enjoyed this one! I'm currently reading An Abduction Cold Case by Connie Queen and the first line is: "Kennedy Wells slammed on the brakes of her Mini Cooper as she looked out the driver’s-side window and squinted toward the dense woods." Happy Weekend!
