#FirstLineFridays: My Heart Belongs In Ruby City Idaho: Rebecca’s Plight by Susanne Dietze

30 June, 2017 #FirstLineFridays, Weekly Memes 9

Welcome to First Line Fridays. What is First Line Fridays?? It’s where we share the first line only of a book we are currently reading, or one that is on our shelves. This week’s first is from My Heart Belongs In Ruby City, Idaho:Rebecca’s Plight by Susanne Dietze.

Here is the first line: 
The dimming afternoon sky outside the stagecoach window was thick with flat-topped clouds, but the reverberating crack was no clap of thunder.



The books put me in mind of my collection of Love Finds You In series. Those are some fun books and these look like they are too!  Here’s more about the book:

My Heart Belongs In Ruby City, Idaho: Rebecca’s Plight by Susanne Dietze
Published: May 1st,2017
256 pages

Is it possible to marry the wrong man? Rebecca Rice was looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach by becoming mail-order bride to her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham—until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore, proceeded by the title Deputy. Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father, so an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad Fordham wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .

Available on Amazon

    Loved this book!!
    I borrowed my 9-year old son’s current read to share in the comments. This is a super fun mystery book for kids and one that’s been read more than once!

    This is so much fun!

    My first line comes from Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery.

    She’d spent over $100,000 and two years in grad school for this?

    Another My Heart Belongs in : Mackinac Island by Carrie Fancett Pagels! Maude Welling’s twelve year old brother, Jack, raced across the waxed wood floor of the soda shop, straight toward her, then skidded to a halt.

    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from Rediscovering Americanism by Mark R. Levin: “I often wonder what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founders would think about today’s America.”

    Sounds like an interesting read!

    I have the first line from Over Maya Dead Body on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from another great read about to release, Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

    As a resident of Idaho I have this now on my kindle in my growing tbr.

    Happy 4th Weekend!
