Today’s First Line Friday is a suggestion by Gemma over at Between the Pages Book Club. She is another great blogger and friend! Thank you so much for the help Gemma! This week’s selection was released last month, and despite the first line, it IS A Christmas novel!
‘Shit!’ Said the vicar as, with a roar that could be heard even over the noise of the storm, the vicarage slipped inexorably over the cliff and into the sea.
Isolated and unwelcome in the picturesque seaside village of Rawscar, Reverend Cass Fordyce has lost her faith and her home. Christmas is coming, and she isn’t looking forward to it. Then she meets attractive local man Hal – twice divorced and with a reputation as a ladies’ man he’s everything that a celibate vicar like Cass should avoid… especially as Hal is hiding secrets of his own, including his past with the mysterious Anna.
Can Cass ever find her way in Rawscar? What secret does Hal have to hide? And is there ever such a thing as a truly fresh start?
