#WeWriWa #8Sunday Weekend Writing Warrior - 06.02.13

It's a Sunday thing...

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would like to participate, link to the list at http://www.wewriwa.com/ and post eight sentences from a published or unpublished work to your blog on Sunday.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

My eight for this week comes from Deceptions of the Heart, now available on Kindle from The Wild Rose Press.

Here's the set up. Rhonda, who is now inhabiting Jennifer's body, sits down to eat her first meal with Jennifer's husband, Anson. She has learned a lot about Jennifer and the people in her life by this point in the story. She doesn't know how to address her unusual dilemma or whether she can trust Anson. As she contemplates Jennifer's husband sitting across the table from her, she recounts all the people she has encountered who hold Jennifer in contempt.

Here's the excerpt.

What kind of woman was Jennifer Cristobal?
Sudha barely conceals her disrespect toward Jennifer. Price Whitaker pretends he’s had enough of Jennifer’s antics. Marnie hates her because she suspects Jennifer is cheating on Anson with Price. Sairs holds some sort of grudge against her. And Anson…why doesn’t he want her to go to California? No one says what they mean or means what they say. I’m surrounded by people that don’t trust her and I can’t trust any of them.

Here's the blurb.

Surviving as Jennifer Cristobal isn’t easy for Rhonda Prentiss. Three years ago, a sudden, fatal trauma stripped Rhonda of her middle-class, stay-at-home-mom existence. A brand new shock prompts Rhonda’s essence to invade Jennifer’s soul, suppressing the other woman’s memories and replacing them with her own. When Jennifer’s heart transplant surgeon, Dr. Crane, can’t—or won’t—help her understand her unusual body-swapping dilemma, she turns to the only man she can trust. But can she fully trust Jennifer’s husband, Anson? Rhonda’s memory proves faulty—and sugarcoated. Multiple threats from her past shake her fragile hold on mental stability. If one of her enemies succeeds, he will kill Rhonda’s soul… or Jennifer’s body… or both.

I hope you enjoyed the snippet of Deceptions of the Heart. The book is now available from The Wild Rose Press on Kindle at 



  1. Wow, she's really stuck in an interesting situation there. Not easy to figure out what to do next, for sure. An intriguing excerpt!

    1. Hi Veronica, thanks for stopping by, especially since the link was wrong on the WeWriWa site!

  2. Love the line... "No one says what they mean..." Great!

    1. Thanks, Melinda. I love that line, too!

  3. I've been following your story. This adds a great element here...everyone hated her! Love it! Boy is she in for an uphill climb.

    1. Hi Cindy, thanks for following. It is indeed an uphill battle for poor Rhennifer.

  4. Poor Rhonda and poor Jennifer. I think Jennifer really needs Rhonda's strength to go through this part of her life and she needs new friends as well.
