Mini excerpt from A Family Affair: Spring

As the days for A Family Affair: Spring, Book Two in the Truth in Lies series draw closer, I thought I’d post a mini excerpt from the book. This one isn’t edited yet, but you’ll get the feel of it as Harry tried to dig himself out of trouble…he is such a messed up but lovable character!

See what you think…

Harry stood outside of Greta’s tiny house and studied his list. Who knew spilling your guts could be confined to a 3×5 lined note card? Not him, that was for sure. But here he was, a fool in a gray suit and a lavender tie, squinting at the card because he’d left his readers in the car and dusk was settling in. Oh hell, he’d practiced the damn speech so many times he didn’t need the card to prompt him. He’d come here because the last eighteen days had been a mix of torture and agony, with Greta in the middle of it all. From that fatal luncheon when she’d witnessed Bridgett purring and pouring herself all over him, Greta hadn’t spoken one personal word to him. What do you think about adding Portobello mushrooms stuffed with zucchini and topped with Parmesan cheese to the menu? was not a conversation starter. He’d attempted a few jokes, even recycled ones that had once made her burst out laughing, but he got nothing. Dead stare, pinched lips, nose in the air. She could do a good impression of Gloria without even trying.

And there you have it….

Off to get Harry out of trouble!
