My new contemporary romance, 'Fragrance of Violets' set mainly in England's beautiful Lake District, will be released next month.
Here are the first six sentences from Chapter 1 (slightly edited):
“Jack Tremayne’s back at Fir Garth,” Mrs Garside said.
The delicate china figurine of Peter Rabbit slipped out of Abbey Seton’s hand, and fell to the floor, shattering with a tinkling sound. The two women at the shop counter turned towards where she’d been rearranging the window display. One was her mother, neatly dressed in a lilac shirtwaister dress; the other was Dolly Garside, the statuesque middle-aged busy-body of the village.
Abbey bent down to pick up the pieces, not wanting them to see the tell-tale flush which had reddened her cheeks. Not from embarrassment at dropping the figurine, but from shock at hearing Jack’s name again.
More next week.
