Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. If those of us in the United States can move after our big Thanksgiving feasts yesterday, that is. Today, I’m featuring (appropriately enough) the first line of An Alaskan Family Thanksgiving by Beth Carpenter. I absolutely love this series and I can’t wait to read this one!
and the first line is…
Framed against a backdrop of snowcapped mountains, the old-fashioned water tower read Palmer, which meant Adam Lloyd had arrived in the right place after following Highway 1 from Anchorage.
His task was simple…
Until he met her
Adam Lloyd has one job: revitalize the newly acquired failing seniors’ apartment complex in picturesque Palmer, Alaska, by Thanksgiving. Falling for vivacious activities director Sunny Galloway and having his love of photography reawakened by her precocious daughter wasn’t part of his plan. His failure would mean eviction for the tight-knit residents and unemployment for Sunny. But even if he succeeds, he can’t stay in Palmer—can he?

I’m currently reading Love in Any Language by Hallee Bridgeman. It’s really good so far!
“Jorge looked at the clock on the wall of the ready room and sighed. Two-twenty-two. He hated jet lag. He would love it if someone designed a way of travel that didn’t kick him in the teeth coming and going.”
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
My first line this week is from The Blackout Bookclub by Amy Lynn Green:
