First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 48 | Five Days in Skye

It’s First Line Friday! That means it’s time to pick up the nearest book and quote the first line. Today I’m sharing from Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano, which releases next week. Actually, it re-releases next week, with a fabulous new cover. But I’m sharing the first line from the original 2015 edition, and hoping it hasn’t changed (because it’s a good one!).

First line from Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureno: At least they couldn't fire her.

Have you read Five Days in Skye or the sequel, London Tides? I loved them both, and now I’m waiting for the third book in the series. Unfortunately, I think I have to wait until 2020!

What’s the book nearest you, and what’s the first line?

About Five Days in Skye

Andrea Sullivan is so consumed by her hospitality-consultant job that she’s forgotten what brings her joy. She dreads her new assignment—a last chance to snag a high-profile client in Scotland. Yet the lush Isle of Skye transcends her preconceptions. As does the man she must impress, the rugged, blue-eyed Scotsman James MacDonald.

He’s passionate about cooking, but after six restaurants, four cookbooks, and his own television show, he’s grown weary of the scrutiny that comes with living in the public eye.

Soon Andrea and James begin to sense these five days in Skye together may just be God’s wild invitation into deeper life . . . and truer love.

  1. I’m pretty sure I have the older version on my Kindle. I’ve heard lots of good things about the series!

    I’m featuring the first line from ‘The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond’ by Jaime Jo Wright over on my blog, but right now I’m going to share the first line from the book I just started, A Love Restored by Kelly Goshorn:

    ‘Land sakes it was hot.’

    I’ve been wanting to read this series!

    The email from Jay’s wife clearly demonstrated that miracle happens. – Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock

  3. Scotland? Sign me up! 😉 I’m going to put this one on my TBR list, Iola!

    On my blog, I’m featuring Only the River Runs Free, but I’ll share the first line of another book on my TBR list here, Elizabeth Musser’s Searching for Eternity: “I am watching the evening news, alone in my house, hungry and tired from the day’s work, eating a piece of leftover pizza and wishing it were blanquette de veau. The story comes near the end of the NBC program.”

    Have a blessed weekend! 🙂

  4. I have this book on my Kindle (the earlier edition). It’s one I’ve been wanting to read, but other books just keep jumping ahead. LOL! You never have that problem do you? 😉

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Rachel Fordham’s debut book “The Hope of Azure Springs.” I hope you get the chance to check it out! Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter Five.
    “Em stood on the front porch, quietly looking heavenward. The sun had yet to rise.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    I can’t wait to read this series when it re-releases!

    I’m sharing about “The Hawaiian Discovery” by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter over on my blog today. Since I’m currently reading a YA Christian fantasy novel called “Choice of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry, I’ll share my first line from there.

    “He walked alone down the sidewalk.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Hidden Currents by Christy Barritt:

    “At the sound of a footfall behind her, Cady Matthews’s back muscles tightened faster than a mousetrap snapping its prey.”

  7. Janine says:

    I want to know what went wrong!

    Today’s first lines come from “Getting Schooled” by Emma Chase

    “Every town has its stories.  The urban legends, history and heroes. that set it apart from the surrounding areas.  Lakeside, New Jersey, population 8,437, has some real winners.”

    This was a truly fabulous second chance romance with some really laugh out loud moments of the inner workings of a high school teachers and students.

    I’m featuring lines from Alexis Anne’s new release “Come For Me, Darling” on my blog today. Hope you can stop by.

  8. Happy Friday!
    The book I’m sharing on my blog is Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey but here I’ll share the book I’m currently reading The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham: “‘She dead?’ Em heard a man’s voice from somewhere above her.” Hope you have a great weekend!
