THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
Today I showcasing an author who I adore. Elaine is indie author who shares her writing. The first book I read was a Jolie Gentil mystery mystey
I freely enjoyed this book and I went looking for others. Elaine shared all her books with me and there are reviews on all on the blog. Elaine on a new Julie book being released June 9, 2018. I have already pre-order it.
“THE ONLY REASON I DIDN’T SHOOT Robby was because I couldn’t think of how to do it without getting caught. About two weeks later I found out that in addition to embezzling from his bank my husband also stole money from our joint retirement account. I should have thought harder. It all happened pretty fast. I like to think that if Robby had blown the money over more than a couple months I would have wised up to it. Or, maybe not. The only bank statement I ever looked at was my separate checking account. After all, my husband was Mr. Commercial Banker. That’s how I met him. I was Ms. Commercial Real Estate. But, not any more. I did not exactly flee Lakewood. I quit my job and left. There’s a difference. And now I need a job. “
“YOU CAN FREEZE YOUR BUNS OFF in December at the Jersey Shore. That’s why all the tourism brochures feature seagulls on the beach in July. I shouldn’t have been surprised that December thirtieth was a good day to freeze my toes, or feet, or any other part of my anatomy. But that didn’t mean I liked it. Especially the whisper of snow that had begun to hit my windshield. I wanted to finish grocery shopping and take the food to Aunt Madge’s Cozy Corner B&B before the snow storm blew in later. On Christmas day, Scoobie and I told Aunt Madge and her husband, Harry Steele, that we were not only getting married, but we were going to be parents next year. “
“DAMN IT TO HELL, Perkins. I sent you to grab photos of a car accident, and half the ones you took are a bunch of crappy flowers.” I managed not to say what I thought. “Those hybrid anemones don’t grow here without…” “You’re fired.” “Excuse me?” “You heard me. Pack up.” With that, Hal Morris, irascible editor at the South County News, walked into his office and shut the door. Silence can be really loud, sometimes. A low voice behind me said, “Uh, Melanie.”
