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 Starting Anew by Melanie D. Snitker. An intriguing opening line!
Lynn Crosby sat up in bed, unsure of what actually woke her up.#FirstLineFriday – Starting Anew by Melanie D. Snitker @MelanieDSnitker #Romance #NewRelease – via @NarelleAtkins Click To Tweet
Starting Anew was a July new release. Here’s the book description:
He’s afraid to trust. She has a secret that could change everything between them. Will they let go of their fear, or allow it to rob them of their chance at happiness?
For most of his life, Nathan Kirkpatrick was lied to by everyone he cared about. Now, he’s determined to leave the past behind him, and focus on a new future with his only real family–his young daughter, Mia, and his long-lost brother, Chess. When he finds himself attracted to Mia’s pretty and kind caretaker, Lynn, he must do some heavy-duty soul searching. Can he trust her? Or will falling for her put his family at risk?
Lynn Crosby’s passion cost her everything. Her parents all but disowned her for pursuing her dream of a music career, and then the music industry she loved wanted her to compromise her values. All she wants is to hold on to her quiet life, with a new name, and an ordinary job as a day care worker. But the more time she spends with Nathan, the more she wants to share her true self with him. Can she trust him to understand and love both sides of her? Or will he walk away like everyone else?
An inspirational Christian novel about learning to trust, finding acceptance, and the healing power of truth spoken in love.
