Welcome to Novel Gems ~ Killing Secrets 08-20-13!
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….
Patrick’s saboteur sets his sights on Rachel and Amanda…and that’s all you’re getting!
Killing Secrets by Karen Docter
Slipping between two cavernous, half-completed buildings at the construction site was an easy enough feat with a flashlight, but only an insane person—the intruder smiled cruelly at the private joke—would reveal his presence with even a thin beam of light until he arrived at his destination. Crossing paths with the night guard was not on his agenda.
He cursed Thorne and his new security measures. The man had become positively twitchy which was making these little forays into Thorne Enterprises territory exercises in creativity. But the intruder enjoyed the challenge of pitting himself against the great Patrick Thorne.
And it wasn’t time yet. Thorne hadn’t suffered nearly enough. No. Not nearly enough for what he’d done. Before he died, he would lose everything precious to him. Rachel James and her daughter were the last nails in his coffin.
….see you next Tuesday with another NOVEL GEM.
