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:
Aria’s chair squeaked as she leaned back. She made a mental note to get some oil for it the next time she went to the store. “Well, the Second Chance program is a newinitiative for convicts. It’s sponsored by the Department of Corrections.” 

Lila laughed in the way that made all of her friends want to laugh too. “Convicts, huh? I didn’t know you knew any convicts, especially not convicts that would make you cry. You’ve been holding out on me.”

Excerpt:

“This is serious,” Aria insisted even though she did smile at Lila’s teasing. She tossed her tissue into the trashcan. “The Department of Corrections partners with community organizations to place model convicts in out- of-prison job settings. It’s supposed to let the convicts learn a skill they can use when they’re released.”

“That’s no reason to cry.” Lila blinked. “Uh, we aren’t getting one, are we? Not that I dislike convicts, but still... Come to think of it, I don’t know anyone who’s been in prison. Besides, I bet your dad wouldn’t like it at all if you started staffing the clinic with criminals.”

Uh oh. It sounds like that might be exactly how she is going to staff the clinic. :-) Trouble ahead--the best kind of trouble. :-)

Thank you for sharing again this week. I look forward to what comes next!

Will they end up agreeing on bringing in convict workers, or will it be a continuing bone of contention?

Christina Ochs said...

Oh, this is gonna be good!

Caitlin Stern said...

Well, if you don't dislike them, why can't they work there?

PT said...

I still want to know why it's making her cry.

(Had to laugh at not knowing any convicts. I used to be a nurse at a jail and I knew more people in jail than out!)

This snippet asks more questions than it answers. Good job. You made me want to read more.
