Novel Gems ~ 04-16-13 ~ Killing Secrets by Karen Docter

Welcome to Novel Gems ~ Killing Secrets 04–16-13!

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….

Villainous plotting is afoot…and that’s all you’re getting!

Happy Reading!


Killing Secrets by Karen Docter

3 weeks….

4 days….

15 hours….

             …‘Til death.


“I’m going to kill Skip.”  The monster’s growl reverberated up from the hellish depths of Robby’s pounding skull.

Standing on the sidelines watching the Southgate crew who’d witnessed the shooting give their statements to police, he shook his head. We still need him.

“You do. I don’t!”

He agreed with a slight nod.  I need him right where he is. Close to Thorne.

“Lot of good that will do you if he keeps saving the bastard.”

When it matters, Skip won’t be an obstacle. He’ll die with Thorne.


You know when.  The plan—

“Death doesn’t need a plan.”

….see you next Tuesday with another NOVEL GEM.
