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. Last week the horse farted when she got on, and this is Cade's reaction.


Excerpt:
Cade laughed as if it was the most hysterical thing he’d ever heard. He turned around to say something, took a look at her face, and wisely decided to say nothing. She’d had to put her arms around him, and she still felt him shaking with laughter. Barbarian.

Once Cade got his maniacal laughter under control Aimee enjoyed the ride. The spring sun shone brightly, which made the wildflowers all but sit up and sing. Birds chirped, and not one car tore down the road to mar her pleasure. Her spirits rose. She had worried for weeks about moving to a little backwoods town after growing up in Baltimore and living in LA, but she could get used to this lifestyle with no trouble at all. Who would ever have guessed she’d like communing with nature so much?  


Or will she? This is a romantic comedy after all.

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.

I'm not sure it 'nature' that she's enjoying communing with at the moment.

Kim Magennis said...

I agree with Ed, Elaine. I suspect Cade's company has a lot more to do with Aimee's enjoyment than she realises

Charmaine Gordon said...

Delicious bit of humor in this snippet. Oh to ride on a horse behind a sturdy man once again.

Veronica Scott said...

I'm glad she's getting to enjoy her ride and nature before you throw the next complication at her! Excellent excerpt...

Christina Ochs said...

It's a nice moment of "communing," though I doubt it will last.

Aurora Springer said...

Yes, I suspect she is enjoying holding on to Cade.

Nancy Gideon said...

Is it nature or Cade she likes communing with? Nice snippet!

Siobhan Muir said...

Heh, things will always go awry with nature. Good snippet, Elaine. :)

Siren X Star said...

I was still laughing, too. She's not really having good luck with that horse until now, but I'm waiting for something else to happen with the horse.

Teresa Cypher said...

I smiled the whole way through this one, Elaine, just thinking about the ending last week, lol.

Well done!

Caitlin Stern said...

Hey, lots of guys appreciate a good fart joke. He's not alone in that. I wouldn't be laughing, myself...
Still, sounds like a pretty area.

Riding through the countryside on a sunny day on horseback, with your arms around a handsome man - what's not to like. I feel sure that it won't all proceed smoothly, though. Great snippet.

Kimberly Gould said...

Glad something can go right.

Jennifer Reynolds said...

The countryside is beautiful. I hope she does love it. Great snippet. :)
