Five Days in Skye: First Line Friday

Happy Friday, reader friends! Today’s featured title is from one of the newest additions to my shelves! Check out the first line of Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano below, then open the book nearest you and share the first line!

Yep, I’ve picked another title from my July Book Haul! Since life and other inconveniences are keeping me from reading them right this minute, I figure peeking at the first lines and sharing them with my reader friends is the next best thing!

At least they couldn’t fire her.


Okay, it is painfully difficult to set the book back on the shelf after reading that line! Soon! I will read this book for the very first time sooooooon!!! These are things I tell myself to ease the shelf shame and tbr hives. We should sit down have a nice chat about tbr probs some time soonish!

My dear book sister Carrie (Reading Is My SuperPower) has been telling me to read this book (and the entire MacDonald Family series) for at least the last three years. I’m happy to be one step closer to enjoying these stories especially since I’ve greatly enjoyed Laureano’s work! Check out Carrie’s original review of Five Days in Skye!

  1. My first lines are from Deadly Intentions by Rachel Dylan.
    Chapter 2.

    The impact with the car’s air bag felt like a head-on collision with a train. Smoke filled the air. Fine dust settled around her. She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. The car rolled one more time, then settled upright.


  2. “Come on, Nathan,” nine yer old Paige whispered with urgency. “Hurry before Daddy wakes up.”

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Redemption Road” by Christa MacDonald:

    “The jingle of sleigh bells rang out as the door to the shop swung open.”


  4. That is quite the first line! Lol
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt. I just finished A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson but I’m about to start The Healing Jar by Wanda Brunstetter so I’ll share that first line here: “Tears sprang to Lenore Lapp’s eyes as she stood with the others who had come to witness this special English wedding.” Happy reading!


  5. I need to re-read this book! 🙂

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from When Mountains Sing by Stacy Monson.

    The clash of cologne, sweat, and ego assaulted her senses as it did every weekday morning.


  6. I need to read this book!

    Here’s the first line from my book club’s next selection — Cost of Betrayal. It comes from the novella by Dee Henderson. “Ann Falcon eased toward the front of the crowd.”
