First Line Friday #112

Happy Friday!

This week I’m featuring:

This Wandering Heart (Madison River Romance #1)

Ever since she was seventeen, Keira Knudsen’s internal compass needle had failed to point north.

This wandering Heart released earlier this week and I’m excited to be reading this one soon!

About the Book:

In the first entry in the Madison River Romance series, Keira Knudsen gets the traveling opportunity of a lifetime, but when she reunites with her first love, Robbie, she learns that even a wandering heart needs a home….

No one in the quaint town of West Yellowstone, Montana knows that unassuming geography teacher Keira Knudsen moonlights as sensational travel blogger Kat Wanderfull. No one, that is, except for her first love, Robbie Matthews, who has just discovered the woman he is falling for online is the same one that broke his heart five years ago.

But Robbie has another problem: the mother of his daughter, Anabelle, has resurfaced after a three-year absence determined to rip Anabelle away from him. Robbie needs a steady paycheck for a chance at custody, and now, on the eve of a grand adventure that could give Keira a chance to flee her old, troubled life once and for all, she is in need of assistance.

With so much broken trust between them, Keira and Robbie must keep an arms-length away to make this partnership work. But the more time they spend together, exploring majestic places and sharing new experiences, the closer they get–until their secrets and dreams threaten to cost them everything.

About the Author:Janine Rosche

Although I reside in Ohio with my husband, four children, and two spoiled Labrador retrievers, I have lived and traveled all over the United States. Since each of these lovely places has stolen a piece of my heart, I write to revisit them.

My stories are set in rustic towns, along rivers and between mountains where love is sweet, faith is genuine, and ever afters are happy. I promise you’ll always find inspiring characters, moving tales of redemption, and riveting romance.

In addition to writing novels, I teach university courses in Human Development and Family Relations, and I am certified in Family Life Education. This education and experience has led to the production of the Love | Wander | Read Journal, a quarterly digital magazine that provides inspiration for a life well-lived.

Look for my debut novel, This Wandering Heart, to be released by Berkley Publishing May 5, 2020!


Now it’s your turn!

  1. This one sounds really good! 🙂

    Today on my blog I’m featuring Standoff by Patricia Bradley. My current read is Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish by Bethany Turner, and I’m just starting chapter 14: “‘For the last time,’ I seethed, ‘would you please get out of my way?'”

    Have a great weekend, and happy reading!

  5. Happy Friday! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m sharing from Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey by Abigail Wilson. It’s an excellent novel! Currently I’m reading Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I’m on chapter 19, so I’ll post a line from there.
    “It shouldn’t surprise us that someone else lives at the address from 1998.”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. My first line is from Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano:
    September 1886
    The truth of the matter was this—she, Miss Beatrix Waterbury, had been banished from New York, and all because she’d had the great misfortune of landing herself in jail…twice.

  7. I’m sharing the first line from Sandpiper Cove by Irene Hannon on my blog today and I’m currently on chapter 19 so I’ll share that first line here: “She might have dragged her feet about coming.” I hope you have a great weekend!
