Saturday Sample: Blue 52

Welcome to my Saturday Sample. My excerpt today comes from Blue 52 which will be released December 1 by Whiskey Creek Press. Blue 52 is a mainstream romance. First a blurb, then an excerpt.


"First Lady Kills President Lovinggood"

December 29, 2018

Thirty years later Hank Lovinggood embarks on a quest to prove his mother's innocence and punish the killers who took his family from him.  Together Hank and lovely physicist Kathryn Sinclair confront an implacable, twisted, merciless enemy who'll do whatever it takes to hide the truth forever.

"Blue." She stumbled as a woman pushed her from behind. They were in everyone’s way.

"Like your sweater?"

"No, that’s too blue for you. You need a softer shade."

Hank shifted the shopping bag to his other hand. "Tell you what. I’ll carry the horses to the car for you if you’ll go shopping with me. You can help me pick out some blue shirts."

Kathryn didn’t bother to analyze either his invitation or her answer. "You’ve got a deal.
