Snippet Sunday - INNOCENT TEARS - 27/12/2015 #romance #reading #newrelease


~~~
 
 
INNOCENT TEARS will be re-released mid-January.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

~~~






“My Mum is dead.”
Somewhat startled by this statement, Emma peeked over the reception desk into beautiful green eyes that belonged to a cute little girl with brown curly hair and a freckled button nose. She couldn’t help but smile. There was something in the girl’s eyes that held a hint of mischief and curiosity, as well as some sadness, and Emma was drawn to her instantly.
“Nadine!”
The stern voice of an elderly woman approaching the reception caused Emma to flinch. The girl stiffened with eyes wide open.
“My apologies for that,” the woman said to Emma, though her expression didn’t actually reveal any signs of apologies. The woman’s face reflected a life of bitterness, the lines appearing deep and weathered.
Emma smiled. “No need to.”
An elderly man joined them, and after a brief nod of acknowledgment she asked, “May I help you?”











Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

  5. I wonder when her mum died, was it recent or something she is bitter about having to grow up without her? This certainly raises the curiosity level bunches. And who is the elderly couple? Great wa to keep your readers wanting more.

  6. "The woman’s face reflected a life of bitterness, the lines appearing deep and weathered." I LOVE this description. It speaks so much of character in so few words. Love the way you opened this with the little girl, there's mystery there. Nicely done!

  7. OH, the little girl has my sympathies! Wonder if she will have to live with the bitter old lady. Doesn't sound like much fun.

  8. I think Nadine needs someone new to take care of her. That woman doesn't seem to be good enough.
