Last week we saw that after the wrestling match started, Cade hit Rocky with a chair, and Rocky didn't get up. We also saw that in the ambulance he asked if it was safe to sit up, and at that point Aimee slapped him. The driver just told Aimee there was no call to hit him because it wasn't his fault. Aimee doesn't think Dave (the driver) and Rocky understand the seriousness of their position. (They ticked off drug dealers and have to fake Rocky's death so he can enter the witness protection program.)

Excerpt:
Dave’s loud voice overrode hers. “I see the hospital. Look panicked, ma’am, if you can.”

Wonder what would happen if she slugged good ole Dave? No, she couldn’t do that. He was a federal agent after all. She sat on her hands to avoid temptation. 


The ambulance screeched to a halt outside the emergency room door. Since she felt so bad, it wasn’t much trouble to look miserable and scared. She grabbed Rocky’s hand and ran beside the stretcher as they entered the hospital, a hulking structure whose dark, ominous appearance made her heart race. 

Blurb:
Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

Dropped right in the middle but I'm excited to read more.

I'm beginning to wonder about Dave's safety. LOL

Veronica Scott said...

Another excellent snippet! I feel so sorry for your heroine as she tries to cope...

Diane Burton said...

Aimee has really gotten herself into a mess. Love her reaction to Dave. LOL Great snippet.

Caitlin Stern said...

Probably not a good idea to hit Dave, no. Though I can see why she'd want to!

Ed Hoornaert said...

Her tension comes through loud and clear in her thoughts and actions.

Amy Braun said...

"Look panicked..." I love that!

Naomi Shaw said...

Love it

Chelle Cordero said...

Maybe being so p*ssed off will be mistaken for worry, lol.
I can understand her ire if it was his reckless behavior that put them into this situation.

Jennifer Powell Reynolds said...

I'm glad she held herself back. Going to jail at that moment wouldn't be a good idea. :)

Teresa Cypher said...

I think she's handling this correctly. Anger will get her far better mileage than being meek or frightened.

Elizabeth Fortin said...

The hospital doesn't appear very encouraging. Yikes.

I'm wondering why they're still going to the hospital if they are faking his death. Couldn't they have ruled him dead on the transport and not made such a big fuss? Seems like a lot could go wrong this way.
