Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors: Turnaround Farm

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at:

Turnaround Farm is a kindle unlimited title available at

If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week

Dan had dark blond hair, a handsome face, and expressive blue eyes. Hard work in the fresh air had filled out and sculpted his grandson’s body. His shoulders tapered off to a waist that appeared narrow because of the width of those shoulders, and his body was layered in muscles so well defined strangers would assume he spent most of his time in a gym.

Yes, Holly liked what she saw, but Dan seemed almost dumbstruck. He cut his eyes toward Jeb and flushed, probably because his grandfather had caught him staring at Holly. It was no surprise that Dan was staring. With her height and golden-blonde beauty, Holly Grant belonged on the cover of a fashion magazine.
A daring idea struck JebShe isn’t the one I’d have picked for him, but the woman who wants Dan will have to be more than just fluff, and Holly Grant is definitely that.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.

Dan is trapped in the situation whether he likes it or not. Grandpa is such a schemer - love him!
