#WeWriWa #8Sunday Weekend Writing Warrior - 05.19.13


It's a Sunday thing...



Each Sunday, Weekend Writing Warriors hosts a fun new meme. If you would like to participate, link to the list at http://www.wewriwa.com/ and post eight sentences from a published or unpublished work to your blog on Sunday. Follow the same link on Sunday to read excerpts from other authors.



I'm sharing 8 from my upcoming release from The Wild Rose Press, An Impostor in TownHere's the setup...

Even though Peyton is tired from her long shift as a nurse in the emergency room at the local hospital, she goes to the annual chili cook-off, simply because she knows Brian Parker will be there. At this point in the story, she hasn't acknowledged her attraction to him...not even to herself.


Standing in the threshold with the brilliant sunshine behind her, she tried to adjust her focus to peer into the dark interior.
A man whistled an inconsistent melody. She couldn’t see him, but she was certain the whistler was Brian Parker. The tune stopped mid-note. “Well, if it isn’t my angel of mercy. I thought you weren’t coming!”
   She overlooked the angel of mercy reference. She was no angel.

Don't you want to know why Peyton didn't believe she was an angel? Well, you'll have to read the book when it releases! In the meantime, here's the blurb...


Peyton Chandler has done everything to protect her son Jake from the evil men that would destroy her by destroying him. For years, she has allowed another woman to raise her son, kept herself apart from him, and hidden behind her dead sister’s identity, never allowing herself to get close to anyone—not even Sheriff Brian Parker, the one man whose love and respect she craves. When Brian receives a note claiming there’s an impostor in town, he doesn’t know where to start his investigation. Peyton fears she will lose the man she loves if he discovers she’s not the woman she claims to be.

  6. Intriguing! The premise for this story has so much implicit heartbreak, can't wait to see how it all works out for the HEA. Excellent excerpt!

  7. Why was it so dark in there, why was the whistling inconsistent, and why did he think she wasn't coming? Also love the blurb. I wonder why she assumed her sister's identity...
