Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:

in-the-shadow-of-denali

Amazon | Goodreads

1917

Henry Brennan–the insufferable man–should’ve been dead.

In the Shadow of Denali is my current read and I’m thoroughly enjoying it so far. This whole series has been on my TBR pile for quite a while but I finally purchased it while I was at Baker Book House earlier this month for FRS. I’m just a little past halfway through but I’m thinking there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be finishing before I head to bed tonight 🙂

About the Book:

Cassidy Ivanoff and her father, John, work at the new and prestigious Curry Hotel outside Mt. McKinley. While John will be expedition and wilderness exploration guide for the wealthy tourists, Cassidy has signed on as a cook’s assistant. Both are busy as the hotel prepares to welcome the president of the United States on his way to drive in the golden spike to officially complete the railroad.

Allan Brennan travels to the Curry Hotel to be an apprentice of a seasoned Alaska mountain guide. Ever since his father’s death climbing Mt. McKinley, he’s worked to earn enough money to make the trek to the Alaska territory himself. His father’s partner blames their guide for the death of his father, but Allan wants to find the truth for himself. He finds an unlikely ally in Cassidy, and as the two begin to look into the mystery, they suddenly find that things are much less clear, and much more dangerous, than either could ever imagine.

  1. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first few lines of my current read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron on my blog. But, here, I’ll share the first lines of a book I recently finished – City of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    “He was an easy mark.

    Nahri smiled behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her tall. The younger one glanced anxiously down the alley while the older man – her client – sweated in the cool dawn air. Save for the men, the alley was empty; fajr had already been called and anyone devout enough for public prayer – not that there were many in her neighborhood – was already ensconced in the small mosque at the end of the street.”

    Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great weekend!

  3. I chose chapter two of One Final Breath by Lynn Blackburn:
    Anissa brought up the rear of their somber crew as they each nodded at Bill, the security guard in the Carrington Memorial Hospital emergency department.
    I loved all three books in this series.

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet Ferguson: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/29/first-line-friday-99/. Currently I’m finishing up Finding Miss Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano. I’ll share a line from that book here. 🙂

    “As we hurried through the hallway, his grip on my arm tightened until I half expected to hear my bones snap.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚
