Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn't.”




Emma wondered about that remark and then remembered what the girl had said about her mother. She watched as Mrs. Gibbs rushed her husband and Nadine into the lift, and the door slid shut.
A familiar voice startled her. “Emma! Come on, stop dreaming.”
Emma turned around and saw her colleague, Jack, standing next to her. She smiled.
“Jack! Where’ve you been?”
He lifted one side of his mouth. “Morning tea.”
“Are you for real? You’ve been gone for an hour.”
Grinning, he ruffled her hair, leaving her pony tail in a mess. “Another bad hair day?”
She gently pushed him away and rolled her eyes. “You’re avoiding the subject!”
With raised eyebrows he asked, “Which subject?”
She poked her tongue out at him. Why should I care if he gets into trouble!
“Miss Gallagher!” The familiar authoritative voice came from behind them.
Emma winced and with heat creeping up her cheeks she slowly turned, only to see her boss standing behind her.

  4. Why is it always the woman's fault when her male coworker is the tardy one? I hope she turns around and raises a cool eyebrow. Great snippet, Iris. :) And congrats on the re-release.

  8. I don't know why, but something makes me think she's not going to take a reprimand without defending herself. :-)

  9. Is her boss related to Mrs. Gibbs? They seem to be equally humorless, intolerant, and uptight.
