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 Love and Other Mistakes by debut Aussie author Jessica Kate. A fabulous and intriguing opening line! I enjoy reading rom-coms and this book is next on my tbr list. I’m an Aussie, and I’ve never seen or heard of gingerbread M&M’s. Are they good?
Natalie Groves eyed the bag of gingerbread M&M’s on the other side of the office meeting room and prayed for a divine intervention of Red Sea proportions.#FirstLineFriday – Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate @JessicaKate05 #Romance #NewRelease – via @NarelleAtkins Click To Tweet
Love and Other Mistakes released this week on July 30, 2019. Here’s the book description:
Jessica Kate’s hilarious, romantic debut novel proves that love comes in God’s own time.
Natalie Groves once had big dreams. But soon after her fiancé, Jeremy Walters, inexplicably broke off their engagement and left town, her father was diagnosed with cancer. Now tasked with keeping her family afloat, Natalie’s grand plans have evaporated . . . and God feels very far away.
Fast-forward seven years, and Jeremy is back in Charlottesville with an infant son and years of regrets. When his niece, Lili, lands on his doorstep in need of a place to stay, Jeremy needs help—and fast.
An internship opening finally presents Natalie a chance at her dream job, but she needs a second income to work around it—and the only offer available is Jeremy’s. They could be the solutions to one another’s problems, provided they don’t kill each other in the process. When they join forces, sparks fly. But they both know there’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and that love will turn out to be the best decision—or the biggest mistake—of all.
