#FirstLineFridays: The Farmer’s Market Mishap by Wanda and Jean Brunstetter


It’s time for 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. So today my First Line Friday will be from The Farmer’s Market Mishap by Wanda and Jean Brunstetter

Here is the first line from The Farmer’s Market Mishap: 
A bone-chilling wind lashed at the trees, scattering bits of debris across the yard. 

I just finished this book and it was really good! Here’s more about the book:

    Brrrr! It’s going to feel a bit like that here (in Australia) this coming week. We’re definitely heading in to winter!

    I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger’s upcoming release on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from ‘Nightshade’ by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

    “Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

    Have a great weekend!

    My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

      I need to read more of Tosca’s work. I think I’ve only read one of her books.

    Haven’t read Brunstetter yet, even though I own a few of her books. 🙂

    This week, I’m trying to put some reading time into “The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman” (for research) and “Threads of Suspicion (by Dee Henderson–my first of hers to read).

    Happy Friday!! Sounds really good!
    My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: “The dream started the way Jennifer’s actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten.”

    Here’s my first line today (from the prologue): “Night crept over the hills, smothering the landscape in a cocoon of darkness that would hide him in a few minutes.” — Colleen Coble’s Haven of Swans (the cover is intriguing, too!).

      I’m not a huge fan of Colleen’s but this one does sound intriguing. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m currently reading…

    The euphoria of winning a hard case vied in her thoughts with wondering what came next as Haden McCarthy left the Alexandria courthouse.

    From the prologue of Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection
    Kansas, 1865
    Abigail Melton entered the kitchen to the sight of her mother slumped over the table, a telegram clutched in one hand.

    The fictional town of Turtle Springs lost almost all their men to the Civil War.

    On my blog is the first line from Irene Onorato’s upcoming release so I have decided to share the first line from a book that’s gotten buried on my kindle entitled Back Home Again by Melody Carlson.

    “Thin rays of afternoon sunlight filtered through the leaves of the old maple tree that dominated the front yard of the Howard family home.”

    Wow, that line really carries you away and places you in the setting.

    Here’s mine from a book I just finished reading: Count Me in by Mikal Dawn.

    “The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer’s neck stood at attention.”

    I have a few books by this author, but I still haven’t had the chance to read any yet. I have read some by Beverly Lewis though. Have you seen any of the films on the Hallmark Channel that are based on her books? They are really good. 🙂

      I haven’t! I need to watch them. I’ve bought two of the DVDs to watch so I’m excited about them.
