First Lines Friday – 14th January 2021

Happy Friday!!!! Welcome back to my first “First Lines Fridays” of 2022!!!

For those of you who are new to to this, First Lines Fridays is a weekly meme that is hosted by Wondering Words. It’s a very quick and simple meme all you have to do is:

Choose a book from your shelves/current read, open the book to the first page, copy the first line or two on the page making sure you don’t give away the book title and then reveal the book.


“Unable to face anyone, Perdita Riley slipped down and crawled under the table. She heard the swift goodbyes of the embarrassed guests and the closing of the front door. Frank, her rescued cat, ran in and sidled up to her.”

Do you recognise which book these lines come from?

This weeks book is…

Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“Shortlisted for Choc Lit’s 2019 Search for a Star competition” 

Perdita Riley is facing the greatest dilemma of her life. 

Why had she taken Violet Freestone’s advice on how to make herself look more alluring? It led her into the arms of a womaniser. And now Perdita has to deal with a huge setback. Actually, Setback Number One isn’t huge yet, but it won’t be long before it is. To cheer herself up, Perdita goes shopping, where an extraordinary encounter deposits her, literally, into the lap of Saul Hadley. She would like to stay there, but Setback Number One is going to get in the way.

Will she find a way to deal with what has happened? Can she manage the complications of her growing attraction to Saul?

This hilarious situational romantic comedy will keep you gripped until the very end.
