First Line Fridays- The Christmas Heirloom Post #1

The Christmas Heirloom

Legacy of Love: A Haven Manor Novella

by Kristi Ann Hunter

img_2422The next four weeks on First Line Fridays, I am featuring the four novellas from A Christmas Heirloom. These four stories are connected by a heirloom brooch that is handed down through the generations. Plus, each of these stories is connected to or a continuation of a previous series written by each of these authors. 


Today, I am sharing the first line from Legacy of Love, A Haven Manor novella from Kristi Ann Hunter.


Lancashire, England

From a purely rational standpoint, Sarah Gooding should have been ecstatic with her present position.

What is Sarah’s present position? Why should she be ecstatic? Will that change?

About the Book:

In Kristi Ann Hunter’s “Legacy of Love,” Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job . . . and introduce her to the woman’s grandson, a man far above her station.

    Happy Friday!😊

    My first lines come from Jacob’s Bell by John Snyder…

    A deafening screech, then a loud thud jolted Jacob McCallum upright from his slumber as the freight train pulled into the Chicago yards on a chilly September morning in 1944.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚🎃

    Happy Friday! On my blog today, I am featuring one of my favorites, “The Princess” by Lori Wick. Here I will share the first lines from Chapter 3. “Nikolai stood alone in his bedroom and told himself to breathe deeply. He had the window wide open, cool as it was, but still felt as if he were going to suffocate. This was his wedding day.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    I love these four authors, and I’m looking forward to reading this collection.

    I’m featuring Burden of Proof by DiAnn Mills on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Calm Cool and Connected by Arlene Pellicane, which is about forming good online habits. Here’s the first line:

    “Imagine a small device that has gone from nonexistent to indispensable in less than a decade. You’ve probably guessed it. That amazing little invention is the smartphone.”

    Have a great weekend!
