First Line Fridays: May 22nd #ParisNeverLeavesYou #HistoricalFiction #FLF #Reading #MomsWhoRead

As always First Line Friday comes courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews.  This week I’m reading a book that I will be part of a blog tour next month!

Paris, 1944

They were ripping off the stars.

Blurb

Living through WWII working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter, Vivi, and fighting for her life, Charlotte is no victim, she is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life?

Alternating between wartime Paris and 1950s New York publishing, Paris Never Leaves You is an extraordinary story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost.

The war is over, but the past is never past.

What are you reading today??

  1. Over on my blog I’m featuring Pretending to Wed by Melissa Jagears. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter six of the same book.
    “Setting buckets under the well pump, Nolan started to fill them and squinted at the wagon coming down the road.”

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Grand Encounters” by Jen Turano:

    “I know you mentioned you’ve sworn off gentlemen forever, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and – need I say – Delicious is here again, and, unsurprisingly, he’s sitting in your section.”

  3. Happy Friday!
    On my blog I’m sharing the first lines from The Socialite by J’nell Ciesielski. I’m currently on chapter 14, so I’ll share from there.
    “Kat tipped the glass of wine to her mouth, but didn’t part her lips. She hated reds, especially dry ones, and they gave her a splitting headache.”
    I hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time! 😀❤📚
