First Line Friday — The Glass Bottom Boat

23 Jun

Happy Friday! I have returned from the cool temps of Alaska and am enjoying the hot and humid days of a southern summer. 😉 Today I am featuring a book that is on my TBR shelf, The Glass Bottom Boat by Laura Thomas. The cover suggests a trip to paradise. The back cover blurb states otherwise! If you need a suspenseful getaway, check this one out.

Here’s the first line:

Life will never be the same again.

Join Madison Grey in the romantic paradise of her sister’s destination wedding on the tropical island of Jamaica, where she must confront her fears and mend her broken heart to start living again. As she navigates the turquoise waters of the ocean, she meets Luke Alexander, the charming brother of the groom, who ignites a deep connection in her.

As their personal connection intensifies during the wedding festivities, a stalker emerges, playing dangerous games and triggering haunting memories of Madison’s past. When Madison mysteriously disappears and a ransom note is received by the newlyweds, Luke springs into action to find her and save her from her worst nightmare.

The Glass Bottom Boat is a gripping destination wedding romance novel that will captivate you with its lush setting, heartfelt emotions, and thrilling suspense. Join Madison and Luke as they navigate love, danger, and the depths of a glass bottom boat, in a tale that will leave you breathless.

A published Christian author, Laura Thomas writes heartwarming encouragement for your soul and is a hope*writers certified writing coach.

Laura’s Christian romantic suspense books are published by Anaiah Press: The Glass Bottom Boat, The Lighthouse Baby, The Orphan Beach, and The Christmas Cabin.

She also has a Christian teen fiction trilogy, marriage book, and middle-grade short novel published by Dancing With Bear Publishing, as well as several anthology books, devotionals, articles, Sunday school lessons, and stories published in magazines and online.

Laura is a book-loving chocoholic mom and nanny, and is married to her high school sweetheart. Originally from the UK, they live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, as audacious empty-nesters.

    Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading Positively, Penelope by Pepper Basham. It’s super cute!
    “I was so delighted to run into your sister this week as you’ve been much on my mind, and I hadn’t any way to contact you.”
    I hope you have a great weekend!
