For the last few months I've been sharing excerpts from Turnaround Farm, but today I'm sharing from another book, Never Trust a Pretty Wolf. We'll begin with Chapter One.

Blurb:
Liesel Wolf has a secret, a dangerous secret she’ll go to any lengths to conceal. When she’s paired in a charity game with sexy marshal Andy Bryce, a man with secrets of his own, her carefully constructed world comes crashing down, and Liesel’s on a collision course with her past.


Last week:
“Melton thought of that,” Tony pointed out. “Naturally the money isn’t in the cache. The only thing in the cache is proof that you found it. He’ll mail the check to the specified charity in the winners’ names.”

“How’d you get an invitation? You don’t hobnob with the Rockefellers or the Vanderbilts.”

Tony clicked his tongue and winked at Andy. “I’m the mayor of Shady Corners, goofball. Of course I got an invitation.”

“Won’t Melton mind if I take your place?”

Excerpt

Andy almost crossed his fingers for luck. Geocaching sounded better than he had thought it would, but he had more important things to do with his time.

“No, I’ve discussed it with him, and he’s okay with it. I guess he figures a U.S. Marshal is an acceptable player.”

Andy sighed. His luck was running true to form. “How many people are on a team?”

“Two.”

“Oh, well, I can’t do it then. I don’t have a partner.”

For some reasons I have a feeling that he is trying to escape the game. Maybe they both are.

I wonder where he'll find a partner? A promising cue.

Oh, somehow I'm sure there's a partner waiting in the wings so to speak LOL. Great snippet!

No partner is a weak argument, Tony. Beware the partner you get, for he/she (probably she) will probably play a big role in your life.
