Saturday Sample: Flood

Welcome to Saturday Sample. We'll continue with out excerpts from Flood. I hope you're enjoying them because I really enjoyed writing the book. Here we go.

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:

She yelled to a man who’d just entered the lobby from the back of the room. “Ed, go get Peaches. This is Dr. De Luca.” 

Ed rushed forward and shook her hand instead. “We’re so grateful to you, Dr. De Luca. It would have killed Caleb if Peaches hadn’t been saved. I’ll go get her for you.” 

“Have a seat,” the receptionist urged as Ed left to get the dog. She gestured toward a collection of folding chairs to the right of the reception desk. “It’ll be a minute.” 

This week:

When Aria and Lila sat down, she brought them a soft drink and took the chair beside Aria. “How did you hear about Peaches? We’ve all wondered about that ever since you called us.”

“I saw it in our local newspaper,” Aria replied as she popped the top from the soft drink can. “It just sounded like something that shouldn’t happen.”

The woman nodded and sent dark curls bouncing. “You’re right. Caleb and Peaches needed each other. Once they connected, both of them just bloomed. It would have been a shame to put her to sleep.”
