Hump Day Hook:)


Good lord!  It's been a long time since I posted, hasn't it?  Still waiting for a release date for Class Reunion, and discovered the 3rd book in that trilogy is buried somewhere in my publisher's submission files.  Sigh....

So while we're waiting, here's a snippet from said 3rd book, Off The Clock.  I was inspired for this by the 7 Lines Meme this past week.  So enjoy!  And how about starting a whispering campaign to my publisher?  Just bombard her with emails asking for Class Reunion?  LOL:)


She started the car and headed for her home, clipping her Blue Tooth hands’ free device to her ear and dialing.  When her mother answered, Cara assured her she was on her way home.
            A barrage of complaints hit her ear.
            “Mama, I’m sorry.  I’m in traffic and I’ll be home in a few minutes.  Isn’t Cody there?”  Cara winced when she heard the answer.  Damn it…couldn’t her brother make it through a few hours without starting an argument?  “I told you; I had to work tonight.  That’s why I asked Cody to help you.  Calm down, Mama.  I’ll be there as fast as I can.”  She reached up and turned off the unit and checking her mirrors, changed lanes and stepped on the gas pedal.  Her mother needed her.

Good hook - I want to know why her mother needs her. (Brothers are so flaky!)

I didn't see this last week. I love her generosity of spirit and love for her mother.
