Welcome to Saturday Sample and Weekend Writing Warriors. Today I'm sharing an excerpt from my current work in progress. The book is titled Tarnished Silver, and I have no official blurb to share. The set up is like this.
My heroine Brittany Granger is a private investigator who has been summoned to the home of the Silver family. The Silvers operate The Silver Firm, a prestigious law practice. They are famous, rich, and some say unscrupulous. She has no idea why they want to see her.
Excerpt: As this is a WIP anything helpful that you see I'd love to know about it.
The sullen sky looked leaden and gray, but at this particular moment the weather and how she was going to get home didn’t concern Brittany Granger. After driving in circles for what seemed like forever, she still couldn’t find the Silvers’ home. Biting her lip, she smacked the steering wheel. Only twenty minutes to get there, and something told her Mr. Silver appreciated punctuality.
Her last turn had brought her back to the same intersection she had seen three times before, but this time she turned left instead of right and saw the Silver mansion at the end of the street.
A tall, thick, stone wall surrounded the property while a manned gatehouse guarded the entrance. She stopped her car and rolled down the window as the gatehouse door opened and a man stepped outside.
“Hi. My name is Brittany Granger. I have an eleven o’clock appointment with Mr. Silver.”
