Snippet Sunday

Happy Easter! Today's snippet comes from Her Kind of Man which is a publisher's bestseller this month and is on sale for .99 at

This excerpt is the first few sentences of chapter 1, and it's filled with foreshadowing.

Chapter 1
“You may as well forget about finding a dress that’ll look good on both Kelly and me. She’s long and lean, and I’m short and round. We don’t wear the same style of clothes.”
Eyes dancing, Kara Cochrane laughed at her sister’s glum expression. “That’s why we’re at the library. I want to look at some back issues of Bride’s World and see if I can find something that’ll look nice on both of my sisters.”
“Do you think the stork put Kelly in the wrong bassinet at the hospital?”
“Probably,” Kara agreed with a giggle, since she is the middle sister and doesn’t look like either one of us."

I posted all of Chapter One yesterday if you'd like to read it.


Is it possible she’s finally found her kind of man?
Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids, so when Kara’s fiancĂ© Brandon Miles cheats on her and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.
A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.
But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.

I can't help but wonder if they're adopted and never told. (And I hate captchas--will try once, and then you don't get a comment.)

Such a good book! I think I like best is how you approach what could tear the family apart. A lesson to be learned. Wonderful snippet, Elaine! :-)

Isn't it funny how kids can be so so different with the same parents? Genetics are amazing!

Linda said...

I wonder how different she looks and if the joke is actually not a real joke. Interesting start.

I love the acknowledgement of different body types and not all wearing the same style of clothes.
