First Lines Fridays: Won’t be long now.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

“Won’t be long now. You’ve already had the x-rays, and you’re the sorriest-looking one left,” Zara Yung reassured her Aunt, scanning the people remaining in the hospital emergency waiting area.

Aunt Mary glared. “Oh, that makes me feel much better.”


The Invitation by Jasmine Luck
in Christmas Romance Digest 2021: Home for the Holidays
Publication: October 28, 2021

Family get-togethers for the holiday season can sooth our emotions or savage our souls. No one knows us better than the family and friends we choose share such times with.

In each of these seven delightful short romances, our heroes and heroines find going home for this season even more of a heart-wrench, for true love challenges their deepest held beliefs.

Going home for the holidays has never felt so wonderful.

This is the first annual edition of the Christmas Romance Digest, edited by national award-winning, best-selling romance author Tracy Cooper-Posey, featuring some of Romanceland’s most beloved authors.(Goodreads)

Luck has been on my radar since her heartwarming short story in the Love All Year 2021 Anthology. The Invitation was one of my favorite reads from the this particular anthology. Have you read the anthology yet? Is it on your TBR?
