The Christmas Heirloom

Because of You: A Bradford Sisters Romance novella

by Becky Wade

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 Because of You, A Bradford Sisters Romance novella from Becky Wade.

Present Day

Merryweather, Washington

Maddie Winslow met the man of her dreams the same day that her friend Olivia introduced Maddie to her new boyfriend. Which would have been splendid, except that the man of Maddie’s dreams was Olivia’s new boyfriend.

Whoa! Maddie is in quite the interesting predicament! How can Maddie marry the man of her dreams without hurting her friend? Will Maddie get to be with the man of her her dreams? Or is she doomed to watch him spend his life with her friend?

    Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from A Twist of Faith by Pepper Basham……

    PHD WAS NOT SUPPOSED to smell like this. Adelina Roseland dropped a box of research articles onto the floor and stifled a deep breath as the strong aroma of naturally fertilized farmland wafted in from the open window.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!!😊💕🎃

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first lines from All Things New by June Foster. I’m at the 25% mark, so I’ll just share a couple lines from there:

    “Though Jett wanted to see how the labor progressed, the medical conditions had change. Jillian had to bring the baby into the world now.”

    Kind of intense! 😮

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time.
