TGIF, everyone! First Line Fridays is a fun way to share from books on your TBR.
Today my first line is from a book I am reading soon!
The night I became the youngest person – and the only female ever – to win the Austin Fire Department’s Valor Award, I got propositioned by my partner.
At the ceremony. In the ballroom. During dinner.
By my partner.
I am so, so, so excited to be reading Katherine Center’s newest book. To say I’m a fan is an understatement. If you haven’t read How to Walk Away, do not miss it! Check out my review! (One of my very first on my blog!) Center is a master of emotional but uplifting reads!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel about family, hope, and learning to love against all odds.
Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she’s seen her fair share of them, and she’s excellent at dealing with other people’s tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to uproot her life and move to Boston, it’s an emergency of a kind Cassie never anticipated.
The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie’s old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren’t exactly thrilled to have a “lady” on the crew, even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the handsome rookie, who doesn’t seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can’t think about that. Because she doesn’t fall in love. And because of the advice her old captain gave her: don’t date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping…but will she jeopardize her place in a career where she’s worked so hard to be taken seriously?
Katherine Center’s Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt, affecting novel about life, love, and the true meaning of courage.
Please share with me the first line(s) of the book you are currently reading! I would love to read it! Have you read Things You Save in a Fire, or do you plan to? Happy Friday reading! ~ Jenni THR
