Saturday Sample: Flood


Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today, I'd like to share an excerpt from my new release Flood. First let's have a blurb and then our excerpt. 

Since I was on vacation and missed last week, I'm starting from the beginning of the book so you've probably read the first part of the excerpt.

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
I bet your dad wouldn’t like it at all if you started staffing the clinic with criminals.” 

Aria snickered. “No, we aren’t getting a convict, but one of the big animal shelters in Pine City has several. Listen to this. They took in an abuse case, an adult dog that nobody but one of their convicts could reach.” She sniffed. “Since the dog isn’t especially friendly or pretty, nobody wants to adopt it. It’s scheduled to be put down on Friday unless someone steps up for it, and guess who’d have to walk the dog to the killing room?” 

“The convict?” 

“Yep.” 

New Excerpt: 

Lila studied her fingernails for a moment. This week she had painted them neon green which clashed with the blue scrubs she was wearing. It didn’t look all that good with her red hair and freckles either, but Lila had her own style and always had.

“What are you going to do about the dog, Aria? I know you’re going to do something. I’ve seen that look on your face a hundred times before.”

Aria laughed and started to tidy the papers and medication samples on her desk, a huge, mahogany antique that she had bought at a junk store and refinished just because she loved it. “What look?”

“The one that says you’re determined to save the world.”
