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

“Nothing to offer? No, nothing except honor, kindness, and integrity wrapped up in one of the nicest packages anywhere.”

The sharp lines that had begun to insinuate themselves around Dan’s mouth in the last year or so deepened as a faint flush darkened his cheeks. “I don’t think most people would use the words honor and integrity in the same sentence as the name Wakefield.”

“In your case they’d be wrong, wouldn’t they?”

“It doesn’t matter. I’m too busy to take the time. Besides, a woman like that is too high maintenance for me to afford.”
Jeb patted the mare’s neck, and she bumped his chest with her nose. She’d always been an affectionate creature.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.  Jeb is speaking first.

Jeb has to be careful not to push too hard. Stubborn people will dig their heels in just on principle :)

This passage paints a picture of a complicated young man. Nicely done.

To have traits of someone you do not care for has to be difficult. And Gramps is right. He probably would not be thrilled to be reminded of such a trait.

I forgot to add my link. If you have a chance, I have my snippet up too. Karen's Shenanigans
