Penelope Jean Hunter loved every wedding she’d ever been to. Except her own.
A Dazzle of Diamonds officially releases very soon on Aug 4, 2020 and is what’s next on my TBR pile. I’m excited to dig into it after enjoying the other two books in this series so far 🙂
About the Book:
Penelope Hunter loves her job as the events manager at one of Savannah’s premier historic venues–until her ex-fiancé walks into her office with his new bride-to-be. To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is intent on seeing Penelope fired, especially if she insists on being seen with Tucker Westbrook.
Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his friendship with Penelope, who has been by his side since childhood. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot–and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South.
To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a 150-year-old lost treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job–and falling helplessly in love.
Now it’s your turn!
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. To see what First Lines others are sharing this week head over to Hoarding Books.
“Stealing came easy today.” First line in Terri Blackstock’s “Night Light,” the second book in her Restoration Series.
Oh that’s one of my favorite series of all time!! Enjoy!!!
I loved A Dazzle of Diamonds and it ended up being my favorite of the series.
On my blog this week, I’m sharing the first line from Remembering the Cowboy by Mandi Blake:
“Camille Vanderbilt was back in Wyoming on a mission: find Noah Harding.”
I hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Oh yay! Good to know 😊
Well that line turned my head!! Have a wonderful weekend!
Haha thanks you too!
Dazzle of Diamonds is coming my way!
My first line is from DON’T KEEP SILENT by Elizabeth Goddard
Dread warred with hope as Rae Burke shivered in the cold outside on the porch.
Oh I hope to read that one too!!
I’m currently reading Georgana’s Secret by Arlem Hawks (a very cool name, btw). I’m on chapter 12, so I’ll share the first line from there: “Seawater made poor wash water.” I think I’d have to agree! Hope you have an excellent weekend. 🙂❤📚
I think I might have to agree with that first line lol. Hope you enjoy it!
Happy Friday! I’ve been in the mood to read my old Victorian novels, so my first line is from “St. Elmo” by author Augusta J. Evans. This is not the actual first line, but one that I like for how descriptive it is:
“Until her wild song waked echoes among the far-off rocks, the holy hush of early morning had rested like a benediction upon the scene, as though nature laid her broad finger over her great lips, and waited in reverent silence the advent of the sun.”
It’s like poetry butter! 🥰
I loved that first line and the book sounds fascinating! On my blog, I am sharing the first line from the Christian non-fiction, Courage, Hope, and Healing by Mary Pappas. It’s the compelling story of her battle against cancer. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Five: Staring blankly out of the dining room window, I waited for the telephone to ring.
Happy Friday! Today, I’m sharing the first line from A Foreign Crown by Jen Geigle Johnson. “The mist over the water cleared enough that Prince Layton Christian Wilhelm could see through his spyglass the Jolly Roger unfurl off the topmast of the enemy ship.”
I love the title! I hope you have a nice weekend. 🙂
Thanks you too!
Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Start with Me by Kara Isaac.
“Of course, this latest allegation has been a huge shock to all of us.”
Have a lovely weekend!
Intriguing first line!
This is a great first line. It piqued my interest for sure.
I have missed every book in this series! 🙁 Thanks for sharing.
Now you can catch up! 😉 If it helps they’re also standalones
