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. When they try to enter the house the door falls to the floor. Cade introduced Aimee to June whom Aimee found rather odd in appearance.. I skipped a few paragraphs where Rocky was greeting Cade.


Last Week:


She (Aimee) scrambled to her feet, brushed her jeans off, and held out her hand. “Hi, I’m Aimee Sherwood.” 

June briefly touched her hand. “June Rochester.” 

Ice water trickled through Aimee’s veins. She had given June her real name. Of course, she hadn’t officially entered the witness protection program yet. She could explain her presence in this town by saying she was visiting Cade. Still, there was no use in taking chances. 
She glanced at Rocky, who didn’t look upset at all, and that was strange since he was the main one Gabe would be gunning for. 

This week:
“Oh, you don’t have to worry about June. She’s a friend,” Rocky assured him, beaming at June like she had offered him a prime wrestling gig.

Aimee took deep breaths to calm herself. If Rocky didn’t take this witness protection thing seriously he’d get both of them into major trouble. She shivered. The last thing she wanted to do was explain this deception to Gabe Porter. He would not be amused.

Rocky grabbed her hand before she could scold. “Let me show you the house, hon. It’s just incredible. 
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.

Regarding June? There are friends, and then there are friends... I'm still not sure which she is. And I kind of think Rocky is a cad. :-)

A tease of a snippet, Elaine! :-)

Charmaine Gordon said...

Run as fast as you can. Head for the hills or whatever. Interesting set of characters here.

jakerose said...

Nice snippet! I still feel that trouble is lurking on the horizon for them though!

Siren X Star said...

I have to agree, there is trouble around the corner! I think Aimee may be over her head. Fantastic snippet!

Nancy Gideon said...

"Incredible" is obviously in the eye of the beholder here. I'm thinking Rocky lives somewhere "off planet".

Aurora Springer said...

I don't trust Rocky's idea of "incredible"

P.T.Wyant said...

I think the two of them may have different definitions for "incredible." And I want to know more about June...

Ed Hoornaert said...

You've posited some great dramatic questions. Is June truly trustworthy? What's up with the chilly handshake.

Christina Ochs said...

So far, it seems nothing Rocky does is very trustworthy.

Veronica Scott said...

All very interesting and mysterious, especially about June. Rocky's attitude seems odd, but very "Rocky", kind of devil-may-care, things'll be all right, which probably means all kind of bad stuff will occur....enjoyed the excerpt!

Hywela Lyn said...

Wow, very atmospheric, creepy and intriguing excerpt! I wonder what Aimee has got herself into!

Kimberly Gould said...

I can't imagine trying to wear a new name/past is easy. Great snippet.

Caitlin Stern said...

Oh, dear. Rocky is going to cause all kinds of trouble, I can just tell. She'll have to be careful for the both of them--or just get the heck out of Dodge!

Jennifer Reynolds said...

I'm not sure Rocky is going to be much help to her. Great snippet.
