White velvet and blue satin.
That’s what the snow on the mountains and the brilliant blue of the cloudless sky made thirteen-year-old Taylor Hale think of as she lay on her back on the ridge above the campsite.
I’m so excited to read this book! I enjoyed books one and two of “The Heart of Alaska” series and already this one is drawing me back to the wonderful Curry Hotel and the characters there.
Now grab the book nearest to you or the one you’re reading and comment with the first line. Then head to HoardingBooks for more participants in First Line Friday’s.
About the Book:
Tayler Hale is ahead of her time as one of the first women naturalists. She has always loved adventure and the great outdoors, and her remote job location also helps keep her away from the clutches of the man to whom she once made a foolish promise. It seems she must keep running, however, and in secret, her boss from Yellowstone arranges for a new job . . . in Alaska.
The popular Curry Hotel continues to thrive in 1929 as more visitors come to Alaska and venture into the massive national park surrounding Denali. Recent graduate Thomas Smith has returned to the hotel and the people he considers family. But when a woman naturalist comes to fill the open position and he must work with her, everything becomes complicated.
The summer brings unexpected guests and trouble to Curry. With his reputation at stake, will Thomas be able to protect Tayler from the danger that follows?
