First Line Friday — 26 Below

16 Jun

Happy Friday! This week I am in Alaska! Our plans include visiting Fairbanks, so I thought it would be fitting to feature 26 Below, the new suspense novel from Kimberly Woodhouse. I can’t wait to read this book!

Here’s the first line:

The warmth of the summer wouldn’t last.

In her new role as Emergency Operations Center director for Fairbanks, Alaska, Darcie Phillips prevents disasters. But none of her training can prepare her for the terror that’s coming. 

As a cybersecurity specialist, Jason Myers is determined to ferret out any threats to the town he now calls home–and that includes his reckless brother and his ecoterrorist friends.

When an old woman’s wild prediction–widespread destruction as soon as the Fairbanks temperature falls to 26 below–hits national headlines, neither Darcie nor Jason sees a real risk to anything but tourism.

Then the bodies start dropping.

Darcie is relying on her experience and intelligence to stop a killer; Jason is relying on God to guide the way. They’ll have to work together to find the truth and prevent their Alaskan town from becoming a city of nightmares. The first in a thrilling new suspense series from best-selling author Kimberley Woodhouse, 26 Below will delight fans of Lynnette Eason, Irene Hannon, and Lynn Blackburn.

Kimberley Woodhouse is the best-selling and award-winning author of more than two dozen books. She is a wife, mother, author, and musician with a quick wit and positive outlook despite difficult circumstances. A popular speaker, she’s shared at more than 2,000 venues across the country. Kimberley and her family’s story have garnered national media attention for many years including ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Montel Williams Show, Discovery Health channel’s Mystery ER, The Hour of Power, The Harvest Show, and over 1,000 other TV appearances and radio interviews. She lives and writes in the Poconos with her husband of thirty years.

    I’m more intrigued by the summary quote “Then the bodies started dropping.” Eek. What is happening?

    Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading In This Moment by Gabrielle Meyer.
    “The rain had not let up by Friday afternoon, keeping everyone indoors and canceling a garden party I had planned to attend.”
    Have a great weekend. Happy reading!!!
