First Line Matching Game

Time for a game, everyone! We have seven (!) new releases from Bethany House this month, so I thought it would be the perfect time to play a round of…Match That First Line!

The rules are simple. I have a list of first lines below, then a list of titles. No searching for any of them online, now, or even looking up back cover copy to find a character’s name. Just give your best guess matching all of them together.

First Lines

  1. “Bella Eden had always known when it would happen—the day before her eighteenth birthday.”
  2. “I did not feel like celebrating.”
  3. “The incessant knocking on her condo door made Layla Karam grumble as she threw off the covers.”
  4. “Wax Mosby was living a life that was going to kill him.”
  5. “Cow manure spewed from the burst pipe and rained down on him like retribution.”
  6. “I want this job.”
  7. “Olivia Rosetti turned up the volume on the radio in the empty parlor.”

Titles

A. The Kissing Tree by Karen Witemeyer, Regina Jennings, Amanda Dykes, and Nicole Deese
B. Forever by Your Side by Tracie Peterson
C. A Haven for Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason
D. The Shepherd’s Wife by Angela Hunt
E. Her Secret Song by Mary Connealy
F. The Sowing Season by Katie Powner
G. Backlash by Rachel Dylan
