Happy Friday! And welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books!!! Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren, currently on tour with JustRead Tours (the company I co-own with my book sisters).

and the first line is…

He should have never left Alaska.


Haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong, former pararescue jumper Orion Starr has no desire to join Hamilton Jones’s elite rescue team. But he also can’t shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali in Alaska.

Jenny Calhoun’s yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from her guilt. The former CIA profiler and psychiatrist green-lighted an operation against the Taliban that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she’ll be forced to trust her life to the most dangerous of heroes–the man she nearly killed.

Orion and Jenny will have to put their wounds behind them to save their friends . . . and their hearts.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Vanishing of Olivia Beck” by Sara L. Foust:

    “Olivia Beck pulled her gaze from the rearview mirror for the tenth time in as many minutes. She would not cry.”

  6. I’m sharing the first line from The Englisch Daughter by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall on my blog. This book is FANTASTIC! I’m currently on chapter 17 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Roy glanced at the clock on the wall of the social services’ private meeting room.”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    I’m doing Before I Called You Mine by Nicole Deese. I’ll use the first line from Chapter 15:

    Like a grouping of cancerous cells, my family’s cynicism had slithered into my subconscious and infected my thoughts with their poison.

    Miss Arabella Beckett had always been proud of the fact that she’d never ended up in a jail. Book by Jen Turano
