Today I’m joining in the fun by sharing a book for First Line Friday. The deal is we pick up the nearest book (or in my case, the nearest device with an ebook in it) and quote the first line.
I’m sharing the first line from When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson. I’ve included the opening paragraph to provide context for the intriguing first line.
The clash of cologne, sweat, and ego assaulted her senses as it did every weekday morning. Even blindfolded, Mikayla Gordon would know she’d entered the office. Testosterone reigned at Outdoor Experience magazine. She dropped her backpack on her desk chair and stood a moment catching her breath. The rainy walk from the bus stop had left her strangely winded.#FirstLineFriday – When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson @StacyMonson #TheMosaicCollection #NewRelease – via @NarelleAtkins Click To Tweet
When Mountains Sing (The Mosaic Collection) is an August new release. Here’s the book description:
When the truth cost her everything, she thought there was nothing left to lose.
Mikayla Gordon loves nothing more than sleeping under the stars, reeling in the “big one,” and long hikes in the wilderness. A medical crisis reveals a 30-year-old secret that turns everything she’s known and believed upside down, unraveling her dreams and her identity.
In search of answers, she follows a trail from Minnesota to Colorado and discovers more unwelcome secrets even as she falls in love with the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and a wilderness camp leader who shares the greatest secret of all.
Knowing her life can never go back to what it was, she must make decisions that will impact far more than just her future.
