Saturday Sample: Fortuna

Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today I'll still be posting from Fortuna my romantic comedy. So far we know that Rocky has faked his death to enter the witness protection program. This scene is after Rocky's fake funeral. Aimee has gone home to Baltimore for a few weeks. She is thinking of how pleasant her life was now that all of the stress was gone when the phone rings. It's Rocky who has news for her.

Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection program 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. 

Aimee groaned and laid her head down on her car’s steering wheel. Her GPS told her she was only five miles from Rocky’s new property, but her car wouldn’t go. It had slowed down and rolled to a gentle stop on the side of the road thirty minutes ago. Nothing she could think to do had revived it. In desperation she had even tried to find her owner’s manual, a useless task if ever there was one.

Where were the police or the highway patrol when you needed them? Not one single car had passed her on the small country road. Oh. My. Goodness! Was it dangerous in this isolated place? If she got kidnapped, nobody would ever know what happened to her. She’d end up on a milk carton or bulletin board somewhere with the caption ‘Have you seen this girl?’ under her picture. Shivering, she stared at the wooded area surrounding her car.
