Welcome to another week of First line friday.

“As the coachman loaded her trunk on to the carriage, Nausea churned in Adele’s stomach.”
I’d love to hear a first line from a book your currently reading.
Journey now to Niagara Falls, New York, of 1870 where…She avoids danger at all costs. He makes his living by rushing headlong into it. Outwardly, Adele Linley’s trip to visit her American cousins is nothing more than a summer vacation. In reality, she’s the daughter of an English aristocrat with barely a penny to her name seeking a rich American husband.
Having grown up in an overcrowded orphanage, Drew Dawson is determined to make a name for himself. He’ll take any honest job to provide for his sister—even crossing Niagara Falls by tightrope. On a sightseeing trip to the Falls, Adele meets several eligible suitors. Incredibly wealthy and pompous, Franklin Conway takes an immediate fancy to her. But Adele would truly like to marry for love. When she encounters the mysterious Drew in the garden, Adele is confused by her feelings for someone who is everything she is NOT looking for. Will they both stay the course they have chosen for themselves?
