First Line Friday | Dancing at Daybreak by Valerie Comer

Today I’m joining in the fun by sharing a book for First Line Friday. The deal is we pick up the nearest book (or in my case, the nearest device with an ebook in it) and quote the first line.

I’m sharing the first line from Dancing at Daybreak by Valerie Comer. A great emotion-charged opening line that makes me want to read more.

Before I read this book, I need to catch up and read a couple of the earlier books in the series that are sitting in my Kindle tbr list. I have too many favourite authors who write and publish books faster than I can keep up with reading them, lol. A good problem to have, right?

“Mama, why don’t you live here anymore?”

Dancing at Daybreak was a September new release. Here’s the book description:

A reformed party boy wants to make an honest woman out of his baby’s mother in this second chance romance.

Dixie Wayling thought she’d found love with her third child’s father until the guy found Jesus. Right. Like she wanted anything to do with killjoy religion, especially when Dan issues his ultimatum: get married… or one of them moves out. Wasn’t going to be her.

Dan Ranta can’t give up his newfound faith to keep Dixie, but after she leaves the kids to go drinking with friends, he turns the tables and boots her out of the house he’s paying rent on. She declares her own conditions: give up Jesus and she’ll take him back.

What will it take for Dixie to overcome her past and find a deep faith of her own? How can Dan stand strong? Sorrow has certainly come for the night, but will there truly be joy in the morning?

  1. My first line is from Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon
    There was blood on the ice.
    Happy reading!

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Cold Pursuit” by Gayla K. Hiss:

    “Faith Chandler stared at the man walking in the distance.”

  3. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m sharing the anthology Romancing the Rancher’s Daughter. Here I will share the first line in Chapter 21 in the second story, A Measure of Mercy by Debra E. Marvin. When dampness kept Witt’s shirt stuck to his back, and a much more feminine glisten shone on Addy’s brow, he motioned her away from the dance floor in favor of refreshments and a much-needed break. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I’m currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: “Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
