First Line Fridays :: A Brush with the Law

Hello, my lovelies. I am here for week three (for me) of First Line Fridays! How awesome am I?! (You don't need to actually answer that. ;) As usual, the lovely ladies over at Hoarding Books are hosting the fun...

So! Today is a special edition theme: Little Month...Little Book. I am not currently reading any novellas....BUT. I did remember one I read last year right around Valentine's Day and since Valentine's is almost here...

Without further ado, I give you... A Brush with the Law by Janette Rallison


It was going to be another great Valentine’s Day— at least for someone else. For Bethany Daniels it was another work day— one where her shoulders ached and she was splattered in paint.

Janette Rallison has become one of my go-to author's for sweet romances. Especially when I need a quick little pick-me-up! This particular story is super short, but super adorable! Poor Bethany has a seriously awful day, which only means there has to be a chance for it to become better, right? And when a certain fella makes his appearance? The cute really begins! It's my favorite of all the stories in this anthology and never fails to make me grin no matter how many times I've reread it. (And I've reread it at least ten to fifteen times so far! I told you. I really like it! See my review for further reference. :)

So, what are you reading this weekend? What's your first line?
Open the book nearest you and post the first line in the comments below…
OR just click over here to join in with everyone else!


  1. On my blog, I'm featuring Serendipity by one of my favorite authors, Cathy Marie Hake. Here, I'd like to share a line from the 30th chapter of The Captivating lady by Carolyn Miller, which is the book I'm currently reading. "The hope filling his heart leaked out the next day when he saw the way Charlotte barely looked at him." May you enjoy a blessed, joyful, and restful weekend.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Kizzie's Kisses by Zina Abbott:

    "Kizzie Atwell felt her breathing become more labored."

  3. Such a pretty cover! My current read is The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey. https://arealwriterslife.blogspot.com/2018/02/first-line-fridays-dishonorable-miss.html

  4. I love what I’ve read of Rallisons so far.

  5. This story in that collection was absolutely hilarious (the entire collection was fantastic).

    Here’s are the first couple lines of a Love Inspired Suspense I finished recently but haven’t featured: Her head throbbed and grogginess gripped her. She rocked as if on giant waves. (from Thread of Revenge by Elizabeth Goddard.

  6. I’m currently reading Why I Hate Green Beans by Lincee Ray. The first line in the introduction is “I can’t recall the first time I tried green beans, but I do know I have decided to hate them forever.”

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. But you are awesome! :) This looks like a great book--I always enjoy reading novellas. I just finished reading Christmas at Carnton by Tamera Alexander, which is a novella that comes before the trilogy of the story. :) Happy Saturday!

  8. Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first lines from the three novellas in A Night in Grosvenor Square. It's a new Timeless Regency Collection. I'm 1/2 way done, and I'm loving it so much. Currently, I'm starting chapter 5 in the second story, so I'll share that first line here:

    "In spite of Anne's attempts to distract herself from thoughts of Davis Whitledge, hours of repetitive work allowed her mind to drift."


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
