First Line Fridays: Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery


Happy Friday Everyone! How is everyone doing?

It’s been an interesting week. Lightning is intense, especially here, in Florida where we are known as the lightning capital. It recently took out the electric box for the internet.

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: Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery

This is a powerful story about a young woman who longs to climb the ladder and become a news anchor. She agrees to go on a missions trip to El Salvador when her younger sister begs her. This is a story that will tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended! You can learn more by checking out my review here.


And this first line is:

“She’d spent over $100,000 and two years in grad school for this?”

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

  1. “You, sir, are a rogue!” Emily Payne scowled into the black marble gaze fixed on hers, determined to win the deadlock of stares. Horrid Beast.

    This one has been around (in fact this is my second time listening to it on audio). Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

  2. Sounds like another one to add to the TBR pile!

    I’ve got the first line from “Chasing Secrets” by Lynette Eason on the blog today, but I’ve just finished reading “A Rose So Fair” by Myra Johnson, so I’m going to share the first line from that here:

    “Now just you hold it right there, mister.” Rose Linwood sighted her unwelcome visitor down the length of Grandpa’s trusty Winchester.

    She’s a spunky one!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune: “Finn O’Rourke paced back and forth in terminal 27A of the Anchorage airport.”

    • Ooh that looks like a fun book! Definitely adding that to my ever-growing TBR pile. 🙂 Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂


  4. Happy Friday! Since I’ll be finishing Pepper Basham’s The Thorn Healer before lunch, I’m sharing the first line from my current Chapter 22: “I hate leaving you like this.” Catherine stilled her movements from packing her trunk, her coral walking suit an elegant fit on her delicate frame. “Not when David and Alexander could help tend the sickness.”

    • I’ve been wanting to read that by Pepper Basham so bad! Great opening line right there. Thanks for sharing and have a fantastic weekend. 🙂


    • Oh it is worth the read. One of the best books I have read this year. Hoping you have the chance to read this from your bottomless TBR. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
