Blurb:
Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.


Last Week:

Prologue 

Dr. Aria De Luca threw a newspaper onto her cluttered desk and reached for a tissue to dry her eyes. How could anyone let such a terrible thing happen? 

Her lead vet tech Lila Monroe breezed into her office and held out a clipboard. “Sign this. They just delivered our order of dog food.” 

Aria scribbled her name for Lila who vanished as abruptly as she had arrived. The cute assistant came back a couple of minutes later without a hint of her usual perky smile. “Why are you crying, Aria? Did the collie’s surgery not go well?” 


Why is Aria so upset? Come back next Saturday to find out. 

Excerpt:

“No, she’s fine. I’m almost sure the tumor was benign.” Blowing her nose, Aria reached for the morning paper. “Look at this.”

Lila perched on the edge of Aria’s desk and made herself comfortable. “I’m not wearing my contacts. Forgot them. Just tell me what it says.”

“Okay, have you heard of the Second Chance program?”

“No, can’t say that I have.” 


What is this second chance program, and why did it make Aria cry? To be continued next week.

Hum, that's mysterious. You keep on stopping before the good part. I wonder why the program would made her cry, it has a nice name.

Christina Ochs said...

Now you've really got me wondering why she's crying!

Teresa Cypher said...

uh oh! That IS a cliffhanger! I love collies! :-)

Aurora Springer said...

Ok, I'm guessing it's something to do with rescuing mistreated animals.

Kim Magennis said...

Excellent cliff hanger, Elaine. I am hooked!

Way to hook us into wanting more!

Whatever the second chance program is, it's clearly bad news for her. You've got me wondering why.

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

Second chances are usually good things.

Kimberly Gould said...

Great snippet. Looking forward to more.

Veronica Scott said...

Intriguing and of course I want to keep reading! Great snippet, feels like I'm in the middle of something :)

Caitlin Stern said...

I'm a little concerned about the whole 'not wearing contacts' thing, when she's clearly handling stuff she should probably be reading!

Amy Braun said...

I wonder what they offer...

Nancy Gideon said...

Nice lead in, Elaine. I'm waiting . . .

Hywela Lyn said...

I'm hooked too! I really want to know why she's so upset.

Nice snippet. I like the idea of Second Chances. We all need them now and again.
