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

Several miles down the road, Jeb Wakefield took his biscuits out of the oven and brushed melted butter across the tops of the hot bread. The sweet scent made his stomach growl. What was keeping Dan? Dinner was ready, and he was sure to be hungry after working all day in the cold.

A sudden draft of bitter air announced Dan Wakefield’s arrival. He pulled his gloves off and stuffed them in the pocket of his heavy coat, which he hung on a peg just inside the door. He sat down on a battered, old bench in the mudroom and removed his boots before padding into the kitchen to greet his grandfather. “What’s for dinner?”
“Beef stew and biscuits.” He ran a hand across his short gray hair and straightened his broad shoulders.

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

Yikes! Take care of that. Rusty barn nail, what could go wrong! Men...

Veronica Scott said...

Oh my, he's a bit casual about his run in with a nail! Interesting, unexpected snippet...

It's a good thing his grandfather's around. Otherwise he might not have bothered. I hope his tetanus shots are up to date.

Rusty nails should never be ignored, good job he has someone watching his back!

Amy Braun said...

OUCH!!! That is definitely something that needs to be taken care of! Rusty nails are capable of poisoning the blood!

So casual about a dangerous injury. A very telling character trait!
I missed the sign up, but here's my WeWriWa post

A cut on a rusty nail is always a danger. He'd better get his tetanus shot up to date. Good snippet.

I forgot to sign up this week.
