Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where participants share excerpts of their books or works-in-progress. It’s a fun way to sample new books and find new authors! Be sure to check out their website. Today’s selection comes from my book, Stay With Me (the full synopsis is below). After countless phone calls, running around town and meeting unsavory characters, Noah finally tracks down the mystery woman…
Noah didn’t see anyone when he stepped through the doors. So when his body connected with another – a woman – he was surprised, but quick to react. Instinctively put his arms around her and steadied her, so she wouldn’t fall. Only then did he get a better look at her–it was Alma. Every doubt and thought of failure he had entertained was erased in the moment he looked into her eyes.
Then she opened her mouth.
“Why are you here?” she demanded.
Noah wasn’t sure, but Alma didn’t sound too happy to see him.
