I'm joining in First Line Fridays today, hosted by Hoarding Books.

I don't read a ton of mainstream romance or women's fiction, but I do have a
few favorite authors I will read and Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of them. I've
had her newest since release day, but have yet to fit it into my reading schedule.
was happy to crack it open to grab the first line, which you can find below...

Dance Away with Me
By Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Adult Contemporary Romance
Hardcover, Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 400 Pages
June 9th 2020 by William Morrow


At long last, the legendary New York Times bestselling author returns with a heartfelt novel of womanhood, a wild heart, and the healing power of love.

Run, run, as fast as you can!

When life throws her one setback too many, midwife and young widow Tess Hartsong takes off for Runaway Mountain. In this small town high in the Tennessee mountains, surrounded by nature, she hopes to outrun her heartbreak and find the solace she needs to heal.

But instead of peace and quiet, she encounters an enigmatic artist with a craving for solitude, a fairy-tale sprite with too many secrets, a helpless infant, a passel of curious teens, and a town suspicious of outsiders, especially one as headstrong as Tess. Just as headstrong, is Ian North, a difficult, gifted man with a tortured soul—a man who makes Tess question everything.

In running away to this new life, Tess wonders— Has she lost herself . . . or has she found her future?
