She learns his name ~ Weekend Writing Warriors / #8sunday / 07/03/16

Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday round. Every week writers post 8-to-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.

WeWriWa blog

A long, long time ago I shared a few snippets from my Paranormal Romantic Suspense, Karma Visited (only 5) - and we didn't get a full taste of this story. Since I am working on a sequel and revisiting the story for myself, I'm sharing more with you and soaking up your comments.

Do you believe in karma? Annie Furman has a gift that allows her, while she sleeps, to visit people in their time of need - but who will be there for her when she needs help? Undersheriff Dave Turner is investigating a series of home invasions and homicides. He has no idea that solving this case will lead him to the woman of his dreams.

Scott leaves for work and Annie has the house to herself for a while.

Creative editing alert!  Here are nine lines... 

Annie finished her household chores and decided to take a break.
She carried a cup of hot cocoa into the den and turned the television on, it wasn’t long before a newscast broke into the program and Annie found herself staring at the face of the only man who had ever been able to see her during her dreams.
The Mayor of Catawai was extolling the police work the four officers did to rescue the young woman who was kidnapped by a homicidal kidnapping duo.
“Undersheriff Dave Turner”, she repeated his name out loud after the mayor said it, she liked the way it sounded.
Catawai? Annie hurried to the computer in Scott’s office.
The map came up on the screen and Annie frowned, “it’s not that far away,” the thought scared her. She had to make sure that the officer, Undersheriff Dave Turner, never found out where she was living or what her name was. If Scott found out, he’d be angry.

It's getting more and more interesting. I wonder whether the Undersheriff WILL find her.

Kim M said...

Your last sentence made my blood run cold, Chelle.

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

I have a feeling Dave will find her, can't wait to learn more. Great snippet!

Unknown said...

Kind of worrisome, that her first thought is how her husband will react. He sounds dangerous.

Charmaine Gordon said...

Exciting and dangerous. She may get in trouble with this new information

Teresa Cypher said...

I'm part of the way through this book right now. Loads of tension, Chelle!

Happy 4th to you and yours. :-)

Ed Hoornaert said...

The plot thickens. I suspect that yes, Scott will be angry, but it will turn out all right in the end.

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

Very interesting that she sees him on TV. The tension is really growing!

Unknown said...

Yeah, maybe what Scott wants isn't all that important.

PT said...

On the other hand, how likely is the undersheriff to admit that he saw some lady at the crime scene and she led him to the kidnapped girl and warned him about another perp?

Daelyn Morgana said...

I'm starting to really not like this Scott guy based on the all the thoughts she has worrying about angering him. Still, I don't think she'd have too much to worry about even if it's not that far away from her. Really? What sane officer who valued their job would admit they got help from a girl no one else could see? That'd be asking to be sent to the loony bin. I do wonder how he'll spin how he found the kidnapped girl though.

Addison Albright said...

Hmm, a little foreshadowing with that last line, I wonder?
