Six Sentence Sunday
'Fragrance of Violets' was released on February 1st and you can see a preview of the first chapter at Whiskey Creek Press http://bit.ly/yy73N9
Here are this week's six sentences from near the end of Chapter 1, when Abbey meets Jack for the first time since his return to her home village in the English Lake District. She's shocked when he tells her he intends to stay.
“Why shouldn’t I stay?”
As he took a few steps towards her car, the light spilling from the shop doorway illuminated his face, and her glance took in his handsome features – the blue eyes, the high cheekbones, the well-defined square jaw, the perfectly shaped mouth and the cleft above his chin.
A quiver rippled through her but she ignored it. “Because people here haven’t forgotten, and many won’t forgive you.”
“What about you?” His eyes challenged her, forcing her to remember the night everything had gone wrong between them.
More next week!
