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 Cade offered Aimee a lift on his horse. Today they reach Fortuna. I've skipped a few paragrahs where Cade tells Aimee that a big red truck belongs to Rocky, and a small Volkswagen belongs to the local realtor June.


Excerpt:

Cade swung off the horse and tied its reins to the door of an old, rusting truck that looked as if it rolled off the assembly line sometime during the 1940s. “I’ll help you get inside,” he said as he held out his arms to pull her off the horse.

Aimee kicked the old truck’s tires; “Stop laughing at me, Cade.”

“Me? I’m not laughing.”

Uh huh.

They made their way across the yard, which was filled with 
ruts, rocks, and briars, and climbed the rickety steps. Aimee blinked as Cade pounded on the front door. Did the door just sway or did she? She screamed when it fell backward into the house. The tremendous clatter made by the fall echoed through the empty rooms and brought Rocky and a woman running. 


Blurb: 
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.

Sounds like they bought a dream home--not.

I still chuckle when I think that horse stinker when she got on it. :-)

Oh dear! Not an auspicious start. And who was the woman?

Charmaine Gordon said...

Sex with the realtor in a haunted house. One problem after another. I say, get the heck out of there!

Sue Barr said...

Not good when the door falls off. Kind of like 'The World According to Garp' when the plane flew into the house.

Veronica Scott said...

Oh my, this is some house all right! Loved the snippet...

Aurora Springer said...

Better and better - I don't think!

Kimberly Gould said...

Oh my, that can't be good. Thanks for sharing!

Juliette Banks said...


Oh dear! Things just seem to be going from bad to worse. And who is the woman?

Christina Ochs said...

It's a fixer-upper all right. Wonder how the realtor is going to sell this one?

Ed Hoornaert said...

LOL. This tale has taken a wild leap in a new direction.

Iris B said...

Oh ... that's not a good sign. Nice snippet.

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

The house is certainly in bad shape. Great imagery of the door falling into the house.

P.T.Wyant said...

That house is definitely a fixer-upper!

Amy Braun said...

Quite an ending! :D

Caitlin Stern said...

What a welcome home! That door is probably a sign of things to come...

Elyzabeth M. VaLey said...

Jennifer Reynolds said...

They have more than a bit of a fixer upper on their hands. Great snippet.
