First Line Fridays – Just Let Go

First Line FridaysHere’s another First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books!  It’s a fun way to share good books and spread the love of words on the page.

I haven’t read any of Courtney Walsh‘s books, but I keep hearing about them and decided it was time. I’ve downloaded Just Let Go and it is next on my list to read.


About the book:

Just Let Go_Courtney WalshFor Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help.

Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out—and the best way to avoid more negative press.

Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town—and Quinn’s life—possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.

First Line

He shouldn’t be here. A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was. 

Okay, I had to include the second sentence. 🙂

  1. Oh, this reminds me I’ve got Courtney’s newest book to look forward to next week!!

    Currently I’m reading A Picture Perfect Christmas by Candee Fick: “Liz Foster collapsed against the couch cushions and buried her hot face in a decorative pillow.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!!


  2. Don’t you love having books to look forward to? 🙂
    Your first line is great! Sounds like a good one! I’m getting into the Christmas spirit already.


  3. I loved Just Let Go. Courtney Walsh is amazing!!!

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first lines from All Things New by June Foster. I’m at the 25% mark, so I’ll just share a couple lines from there:

    “Though Jett wanted to see how the labor progressed, the medical conditions had change. Jillian had to bring the baby into the world now.”

    Kind of intense! 😮

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time.

  6. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette but I’m currently reading Tell Her No Lies by Kelly Irvin so I’ll share the first line from the current chapter (8) that I’m on: “Upstanding citizens of the community did not lead double lives.” It’s not an easy book to put down! Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  7. Happy Friday! I still need to try a Courtney Walsh book, too. 🙂 I’m sharing from A Season of Grace by Lauraine Snelling on my blog. Here’s the first line from a book I treated myself to this week, His Promise by Shelley Shepard Gray:

    “It’s snowing again,” Grace King said to Snooze. “If it keeps up, we’re gonna have a white Christmas. Won’t that be something?”

    1. Oh how I wish I could have a white Christmas! Texas never has any…at least not in the Dallas area. I love reading books with cold, snowy weather. 🙂
