First Line Fridays: Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren


Happy Friday Everyone! Can you believe it’s Friday already?

Since it’s Friday, grab the closest book to you and leave a comment with the first line.

The book that I’m featuring today is: Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren

Three Wishes is the first book in the spin-off dulogy of the original River of Time Series. This time we are taken to Atla California in the 1840’s. You can check out my review here.


And the first line is:

“It’s all yours. The apartment. The restaurant. She left it all to you.”

I stared at him. I know I was doing little more than blinking, but so many words came to my head at once…and yet none seemed to add up to complete sentences.

“I’m only seventeen.” I finally spit out.

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to see what First Lines these friends are sharing today:

  1. I know I’m a little late, but welcome to First Line Fridays! I love your blog header!

    I have the first line from Thomas Locke’s “Fault Lines” on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from Candace Calvert’s “Disaster Status” from her Mercy Hospital Collection. The Kindle collection with all three books in the series is on sale this month for just $2.99, so I couldn’t resist!

    “Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms.”

    In the fourth grade we made little rockets out of old film canisters, baking soda, and vinegar.

    • It’s a super fun dulogy! If you enjoy books that take you from modern day time and then time travel to 1840’s California, then I highly recommend this. 🙂

      Ooh that sounds intriguing! That’s definitely on my TBR now. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I want to read that one, too!
    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from The Spinster & the Cowboy by Lena Nelson Dooley:
    “When the sharp rap on his closed office door roused him, Joshua Dillinger raised his gaze from the legal document he had been studying with intense concentration.”

  5. Ooh… nice first lines there!

    After reading a passel fiction books in the summer, I’m taking a fiction break and reading non-fiction. 🙂 I’m currently reading “Arms and Equipment in the Civil War,” which is a super fascinating read that goes in depth with all of the weapons used, tactics used, etc.
