First Line Friday — Sunrise

7 Jan

Happy New Year! We are already a week into 2022, and I think I have my reading mojo back! While I still have a lot of things to do to catch up from the holidays, I am reading more and enjoying it. πŸ™‚ Today I am featuring a book I’ll be reading in the next couple of weeks. It is a review book and a book club selection. Can’t wait to dig into Susan May Warren‘s newest novel, Sunrise. It has a lot going for it in my opinion — Alaska setting, first in a new series, written by Warren . . . πŸ˜‰ .

Here’s the first line:

By the time Dodge got to the hospital, he’d already broken his first promise.

Pilot Dodge Kingston has always been the heir to Sky King Ranch. But after a terrible family fight, he left to become a pararescue jumper. A decade later, he’s headed home to the destiny that awaits him. 

That’s not all that’s waiting for Dodge. His childhood best friend and former flame, Echo Yazzie, is a true Alaskan–a homesteader, dogsledder, and research guide for the DNR. Most of all, she’s living a life Dodge knows could get her killed. One of these days she’s going to get lost in the woods again, and his worst fear is that he won’t be there to find her.

When one of Echo’s fellow researchers goes missing, Echo sets out to find her, despite a blizzard, a rogue grizzly haunting the woods, and the biting cold. Plus, there’s more than just the regular dangers of the Alaskan forests stalking her . . .

Will Dodge be able to find her in time? And if he does, is there still room for him in her heart?

Sunrise is the first explosive volume in a new nail-biting series from USA Today bestselling author Susan May Warren.

    My first line is from Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund:
    I’m dying, and we can’t change that.” Even though Ellen Creighton spoke as softly and gently as possible, she could do nothing to soften the harshness of the truth.
