Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors: Never Trust a Pretty Wolf

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:

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.

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:
“Maybe so.” Andy blew on his coffee again and took another small sip. Now that it had cooled a bit he thought Tony hadn’t put in enough sugar. “I guess people get pretty creative when they hide their caches.”

Tony spooned a little more sugar into his own coffee. “I have a buddy who geocaches with his family. The last cache they found was hidden halfway up a sheer rock wall.”

“How’d they get to it?” Andy wondered.

“Ben’s a rock climber.”

Andy had met Ben and didn’t like him, so he passed over 
this reference.

Very interesting, Elaine. Of course, most people would grab the money and run.

Hmmm, have to say I'm with Andy - in this day and age the chances are the million dollar prize would lure a lot of people who probably never supported a charity in their lives! But an interesting wrinkle...enjoyed the excerpt.

I assume this Melton chap set up some safeguards to insure the money goes to real, rather than merely personal, charity?

Teresa Cypher said...

I'm sure he didn't hide the actual money--and that there's no way to get out of giving it to a charity. I think the rock climber is going to reappear in this story... ;-)

Enjoying this story, Elaine. I still think geocaching would be a lot of fun. That money is quite an incentive.

Nice set up! I foresee many delightful twists and turns ahead. Can't wait!
