Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:

A Bride of Convenience (The Bride Ships, #3)

Pathways | Baker Book House | Amazon | Goodreads

I ain’t gonna make it, Zoe.”

I just started reading this one a few days ago. My reading has slowed incredibly down recently so I’m still not that far into it yet but I’m enjoying it so far 🙂

About the Book:

Upon discovering an abandoned baby, Pastor Abe Merivale joins efforts with Zoe Hart, one of the newly arrived bride-ship women, to care for the infant. With mounting pressure to find the baby a home, Abe offers his hand as Zoe’s groom. But after a hasty wedding, they soon realize their marriage of convenience is not so convenient after all.


Now it’s your turn!

    My first line this week is from an Appalachian Summer by Ann Gabhart:

    Piper Danson’s cheeks hurt from smiling for what seemed like hours with no relief in sight.
    Excellent book as always from Ann.

    I am reading A bride of Convenience now. It is special.

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first couple of lines from Molly by Sarah Monzon: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/07/03/first-line-friday-142/. I’m currently on chapter 6, so I will share from there.
    “An eighty-hour work week — that’s all the hospital was allowed to work the interns and residents per the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. But when I’d gently reminded Dr. Feinburg of that fact after he’d assigned me to continue care for the patient admitted earlier, I’d been loudly and matter-of-factly put in my place.”
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with family fun and relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

  4. Ooh, sounds intriguing! On my blog I’m nostalgically sharing from Sarah Sundin’s first novel, but here I’ll share the first line of one of her more recent books, The Sky Above Us:

    “Wars weren’t won with caution, and aces weren’t made in straight and level flight.”

    Happy Reading!
