First Lines Friday | Find Your Next Book 6.28.19 #firstlinesfridays #weeklyfeature

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.

What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Copy and paste the text and banner (or make your own!) above for your own First Lines Fridays posts.  Make sure to comment your first lines in the comments so that other people can check them out!

Meet Me In Monaco by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb

Goodreads | Amazon (Preorder price 11.99)

Book Description

Set in the 1950s against the backdrop of Grace Kelly’s whirlwind romance and glamourous wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco, New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb take the reader on an evocative sun-drenched journey along the Côte d’Azur in this page-turning novel of passion, fate, and second-chances.


Doesn’t this sound wonderful? I also loved Last Christmas in Paris by this author duo. Have you read it?

Happy Reading!
