First Line Fridays (Week 48): Charming the Troublemaker


Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
 
Today's book is: Charming the Troublemaker by Pepper Basham

Charming the Troublemaker
First line:
"Loser ex-husbands and freezing January afternoons left a nasty chill."


This is book 2 of the series Mitchell's Crossroads. Book 1, A Twist of Faith was the first book that I read by Ms. Basham and I knew I had to read more of from her. I picked this book up last weekend and can't wait to read it. Have you read this or any of Pepper's other books?

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over

  1. Happy Friday!
    My FLF is from one of my favorites by Terri Blackstock called Covenant Child.
    “There’s a question that haunts me in the blackest hours of night, when wasted moments crowd my dreams and mock the life I know. The question is this: How could a child born of privilege and promise grow up with nothing?"
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Oh my goodness yesssss. That book is so delightful!! I still remember a few key scenes from it. If you love historical fiction, she has a pretty fun series (my favorite is the third book, The Thorn Healer). I hope you enjoy Charming the Troublemaker!!

  3. I just love this book and the Author too :)

    Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd. Here I'll share the first line from chapter 30.

    "Henry winced as he gripped the newel post and pivoted from the stair's landing to the next flight of stairs." -- The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd (first line from chapter 30)

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. That's a first line!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It's the book closest to me right now because I'm currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    "Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean."

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

  8. Pepper's books are always fantastic!

    I'm reading Julie by Catherine Marshall right now. The first line is: "Our 1928 Willys-Knight had been climbing for at least ten miles, one hairpin turn after another, under a threatening sky."

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. I'm sharing from library books today, since it is National Library Week (and yay, my library finally has some Pepper Basham), so here is the first line from Laura V. Hilton's Love by the Numbers:

    "He was gorgeous. Simply gorgeous."

    Happy Friday!
