Joanne Pence has two series that I enjoy. The Rebecca Mayflied is a spin off of Angie Amalfa cooking series. I have  read all of both series. Rebecca Mayfield has 6 books. The Angie Amalfa ha 16 books. Her books can read as stand-alone books but read in order

“Richard Amalfi sat alone at a table in the Alta Vista, a posh restaurant perched on a Sausalito hillside overlooking San Francisco Bay, and drummed his fingers on the white cloth-covered tabletop. He had finished his lunch, and was now on his second cup of coffee. Business, but not his own, had brought him here, and now he was stuck waiting around to see if the restaurant’s owner wanted to buy a few cases of a house red at a really good price. Better than good. Cheap. “The hell with it,” he muttered.”

  1. Happy Friday!!😀

    Today my FLF is from a book I will be reading very soon, An Awakened Heart by Jody Hedlund.

    “Stop prostituting yourselves and run to the loving Father who will embrace you with forgiveness.” Reverend Bedell’s voice rose above the sniffles and muffled weeping of the women crowded on trestle benches of Centre Street Chapel.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!📚😀

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Storm Front (Montana Rescue Book #5) by Susan May Warren:

    “Ty Remington blamed the homemade orange marmalade cake for why he found himself huddled under an overhang off some faraway path in Glacier National Park, shivering, praying he might live through the night.”

  3. Becky says:

    I’m featuring Pepper Basham’s, “A Twist of Faith” on my blog today. Since I have Lindsay Harrel’s, “The Heart Between Us” in front of me, I’ll share my first line from here.

    “Amy says in order to move forward, I have to stop clinging to past.”

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  4. On my blog today, I’m featuring “The Substitute Wife” by Dorothy Clark. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter Three in “A Civil Contract” by Georgette Heyer, the book I’m currently reading. “When Adam left Mount Street Lord Oversley suffered some qualms of conscience, fearing that he had raised hopes that he might presently be obliged to dash to earth.” I love this authors writing style. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • I read all of Georgette Meyer’s book in the 80 & 90s. I didn’t realize she wrote mysteries. I would read them if I found them free and had the time. Today, I am featuring Joanne Pence ‘s Rebecca Mayfield series, a police procedural and mystery

  5. j9reads says:

    My first lines come from A.L. Jackson’s Lead Me Home.

    “I’d always wondered why people set themselves up for disaster. Why they put their heart on the line when they knew it would only be crushed. Why they led themselves toward the slaughter like a blind, ignorant lamb. Willingly.”

    I’m featuring lines from Tess Thompson’s Deleted: Jackson and Maggie on my blog. I stayed up extra late last night to finish it . . .I couldn’t put it down!

  6. The book I’m sharing on my blog is The Road Home by Beverly Lewis but here I’ll share the book I just finished today called A Higher Ransom by Aleigha C Israel: “Anna Haddington took a deep breath of the salty air.”

  7. I’m sharing from my current read, No Less Days by Amanda G. Stevens, on my blog today, so here is the first line from an upcoming read, Reclaiming Shilo Snow by Mary Weber:

    “The moment Earth’s United World Council officially placed seventeen-year-old Sofi Snow at the top of their Imminent Terrorist Threat list, a siren went off in the circular downtown building, and she became the most wanted teenager alive.”

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

    Your first line introduces a character and sets up a dilemma—not bad for a couple of sentences.

    Cozy mysteries are the best! Happy Saturday!
