We know so far that Rocky ticked off drug dealers and had to fake his death so he can enter the witness protection program. Rocky called Aimee even though he wasn't supposed to and told her he'd bought a house for them. Aimee has car trouble and is worried about how she'll get to Rocky's home. She's nervous about being stranded on a deserted road too. A man who knows her name comes riding down the road on a horse and speaks to her. It's Cade McCoy, the man who helped Rocky fake his death so he can enter the witness protection program.  I've skipped some paragraphs where Cade and Aimee talk about how there's only one realtor in town, and she was the one who sold Rocky's house to him. Cell phones don't work in that place so today Cade is offering Aimee a lift on his horse. She's really scared of horses though.



Excerpt:

“I don’t mind riding your horse,” she said, her chin going up as it always did when a challenge presented itself.

“Excellent.”

He swung up on the horse and extended his hand to her. “Put your foot in the stirrup, and I’ll pull you up.”

Aimee confidently stuck her foot in the stirrup and took his hand. She’d never been on a horse before, but how hard could it be? Just a little step up, right?

Wrong. The horse was taller than she thought. As she floundered and scrambled against the animal’s side, Cade gave her arm a jerk and set her in place behind him; the minute the horse felt her weight it farted, a long, drawn-out expulsion of air that seemed to go on forever.  


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.

hahaha ... at the last sentence. I have a lot of respect for horses that's why i stay away from them. :-)

Kim Magennis said...

Laughing. Love the mind-movie that last sentence created

Charmaine Gordon said...

Over-rated confidence got her right in the nose. Super snippet.

Rachel de Vine said...


Love the horse's reaction. They can certainly be unpredictable. I hope the rest of the ride passes smoothly.

Sue Barr said...

You made me laugh. A horse fart was the last thing I expected! Well done.

Christina Ochs said...

Haha! It sounds like she mounts a horse much like I do. And a horse fart can be ... long :-)

Veronica Scott said...

Oh dear, her horse riding experience isn't starting off too well!

Nancy Gideon said...

LOL! Nothing worse than a horse fart - except riding behind it.

Aurora Springer said...

How funny!

Siobhan Muir said...

Heh, I once had a colt that would fart as he bucked around the paddock. Cracked me up. Fun snippet, Elaine. :)

Ed Hoornaert said...

LOL. I've heard it said that whoopee cushions are one of the few truly universal jokes.

Teresa Cypher said...

lolol! Yep. Horses do that. Nice job working in the humor, Elaine! :-)

Amy Braun said...

It looks easy in movies. Not so much in real life. ;)

P.T.Wyant said...

Better to be ON a farting horse than behind it. Trust me on this.

Caitlin Stern said...

Horses--no respect for human dignity. At least it was only a fart.

Diane Burton said...

ROTFLMAO. What a time for the horse to pass wind. Great snippet.

Jennifer Reynolds said...

I don't blame the horse for farting. I would show my displeasure at having to people on my back as well. LOL!!!!
