Welcome to Novel Gems ~ Killing Secrets 07-23-13!
I love to sneak a peek into a writer friend’s developing novel. It’s just so much fun watching their story grow and getting the inside scoop. So every Tuesday until I finish my romantic suspense, Killing Secrets, I’ll share a gem with you ~ a couple of sentences, several paragraphs of a pivotal scene, or a phrase that just made me sigh or laugh out loud or scares me or…well, you get the picture.
A bit of set up for today’s gem….
Rachel is about to confront her past…and that’s all you’re getting!
Killing Secrets by Karen Docter
You can do this.
“You don’t have to do this, Rach.” The soft rumble of Patrick’s words steadied her as much as the callused hand that cradled the back of her neck.
“Yes, I do,” she whispered in the too quiet hallway. “I’m not running any more. I’ll be okay.”
“I’m right behind you.”
And that is why she’d be okay. No matter what happened once she pushed through the door marked Room 7B, she knew she could trust Patrick to pick up the pieces.
God, don’t let there be too many pieces! She didn’t know how many more shocks–good or bad–she could handle.
….see you next Tuesday with another NOVEL GEM.
