Snippet Sunday - INNOCENT TEARS - 13/03/2016 #romance #reading #bookpromo

INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.



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

“Certainly, Mr. McCormack.”
He turned and walked towards the café. She followed him with her gaze and just
thinking of his long eyelashes and the stubbles covering his jaw-line gave her a shudder.
Emma took the phone and dialled room five-o-two. It took a while until Mrs. Gibbs
“Mrs. Gibbs, Emma from the reception here.”
“Well, dear, about time. Have you been successful with the babysitter?”
Reality check. She had forgotten about that. “No, but I will check with our
management, and I can help you out myself if that would suit you,” Emma lied and
slapped her forehead as soon as she had said it. What was it with this woman who made
her do or say things without a second thought?
There was a deep sigh at the other end of the line. “Well, young lady, I suppose I
have no other choice.” And she hung up.
Emma stared at the phone in utter astonishment and then dialled the room number
“It’s Emma here, again,” she said with as much confidence as she could muster.
Mrs. Gibbs sighed. “Now what?”
“Mrs. Gibbs, my original call was primarily to inform you that Mr. McCormack is here,
and waiting for you in the hotel café.”
“Thank you, dear. I expect you upstairs at one o’clock.”
“Yes, ma’am.”

  1. Oh, dear. What has she gotten herself into?

  2. Haha! Someone just dug herself in a hole she did not want! Poor girl, but hey, on the bright side, she'll get to spend some time with the child!

    1. Exactly ... and it might be just the right person to know ;-) Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hmmm...makes me wonder all sorts of things. :-) Mr. McCormack sounds mighty fine. ;-)

  4. I can really identify with her volunteering. I'd do that before admitting to that woman that I'd forgotten anything! Great snippet.

    1. Thanks Joyce ... yes I think I'd be the same :-)

  5. Can I slap her? I really dislike that Gibbs person!

  6. She really needs to find her backbone. Great snippet, Iris.
