I joined a Facebook group a while ago called Snippet Sunday and until now I haven’t had the guts to participate. But with January comes new resolutions and so here I am participating rather than just standing back on the sidelines watching everything go by!
The gist of the group is that I post a snippet (ten sentences or less!) from a book or a WIP and share it with the world. So without further ado, here goes!
Noah bent to pick up a tape measure he’d left on the floor. He heard the clack of Lily’s heels behind him and he felt his body grow warm.
“I almost turned around when I saw your truck in the driveway,” Lily told him under her breath as she brushed by him. Her scent hadn’t changed at all, just the slightest hint of vanilla and flowers, understated and enticing and completely unlike the overwhelming smell of Christina. His heart thudded wildly in his ears. Unfortunately it seemed her hatred of him hadn’t changed much either.
“Why didn’t you?” he replied. Her eyes narrowed in a look he knew too well and she moved past him without another word.
When he entered the master bedroom he found Christina pacing. She let out an angry breath and he had to hold back a smile. He knew better than anyone how good Lily was at frustrating a person.
