It’s Friday, which means it’s time to open the book nearest you and share the first line!
Today I’m sharing from The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner
If you’re willing to admit it, you probably know me as Raine de Bourgh. Yes, that Raine de Bourgh. Did you blush at the mere mention of my pen name? Yeah. So did I.
I know not everyone likes reading novels written in the first person. But if you do—and especially if you enjoy contemporary romance with plenty of humour, you’re going to love The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck. I’ll have my full review posted in the next week or two. I might have to read it again first … and it’s a long time since I’ve loved a book that much.
About The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck
Becoming a Christian is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to Sarah Hollenbeck. Best because, well, that’s obvious. Worst because, up to this point, she’s made her very comfortable living as a well-known, bestselling author of steamy romance novels that would leave the members of her new church blushing. Now Sarah is trying to reconcile her past with the future she’s chosen. She’s still under contract with her publisher and on the hook with her enormous fan base for the kind of book she’s not sure she can write anymore. She’s beginning to think that the church might frown on her tithing on royalties from a “scandalous” book. And the fact that she’s falling in love with her pastor doesn’t make things any easier.
With a powerful voice, penetrating insight, and plenty of wit, Bethany Turner explodes onto the scene with a debut that isn’t afraid to deal with the thorny realities of living the Christian life.
