Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

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 snippets at

Last week we saw that after the wrestling match started, Cade hit Rocky with a chair, and Rocky didn't get up. We also saw that in the ambulance he asked if it was safe to sit up, and at that point Aimee slapped him. The driver told Aimee there was no call to hit him because it wasn't his fault. Aimee doesn't think Dave (the driver) and Rocky understand the seriousness of their position. (They ticked off drug dealers and have to fake Rocky's death so he can enter the witness protection program.) At the hospital Aimee is told that Rocky is dead which of course he isn't. I'm skipping a few paragraphs and moving to Rocky's fake funeral where Aimee confronts two important characters, Cade McCoy and Gabe Porter. We met Cade who supposedly killed Rocky in the first scene. Today we see a description of Cade, and with just ten sentences that's about all I can fit in.

How strange; I never noticed that his eyes are green. Well, maybe not green, maybe gray. Yeah, they’re greenish-gray. Pretty. In fact, he’s a nice looking man. Good shoulders and a classically handsome face, about as tall as Rocky. About six-one or six-two maybe, but Rocky has dark hair and heavier shoulders. His features are more rugged than Cade’s too. 

Cade had even dressed in a suit for the funeral. Its expensive-looking, pale gray material matched his eyes and gave him an air of command she liked much better than greasy hair, a hat, and a leather vest.

Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

Does she want to have a fling with the man who "killed" her fiance? More complications.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Definitely interested, Aurora, although it'll be a chapter or so before she realizes it.

Veronica Scott said...

Such thoughts at her fiance's funeral! (And is Cade in on this?)
