Good Morning from Red Bluff, CA!
We're heading to Eureka, CA & Redwood National Park today so I may not be around much but please welcome Carol Nichols back to our blog with her debut release, A Different Season....
Rosie Redmond, a co-worker, adds a comic interlude to the story as everyone tries to ascertain the workings of her mind.
The succession of different seasons, of Connie’s life, begins with first love, death, murder, romance and the outcome of circumstances of her dead husband’s hidden past. This topsy-turvy love-hate encounter keeps readers engaged with every turn of the page.
A Different Season’s sequel, Mist of the Moment, is planned for fall of 2017.
Connie jumps while placing her hand over her mouth to stifle the urge to scream as the all too familiar rap tap tap can be heard from the other side of the door. Her mind races back through her thoughts and her previous feelings, which has consumed her every moment since leaving the police department. The thought that JJ has murdered that girl, and even if he hasn't he certainly knows something more. Then, as the thunder increases in intensity and frequency, so do her fears. She can hear the wind fiercely blowing as it tosses trees and limbs around beside her windows leaving ghostly shadows on her floor.
Once more, the rap tap tap that used to send her heart racing, as she could hardly wait to get to the door, now makes her release a small, but still audible, gasp.
"Connie, open the door. I’m sorry I left so unexpectedly the other evening. Please let me in. I know you must be confused. Please let me explain. I need to have you understand."
Connie tries desperately to control her now shallow breath. What to do? She grabs her phone to call 911, as she just can’t open her door to a possible criminal.
