From Christina: As I work on the third book of “The Sunset Series”, I’m going to be sharing the story here. I’ll be posting “snippets” each week on Sneak Peek Sunday, and from time to time, I might post additional snippets, as well.
To read from the beginning, click here:
The story is scheduled for release from Secret Cravings Publishing in January. Please be aware that what you are reading here will be unedited, unrevised work from a rough draft of the story. All comments, questions, and suggestions will be appreciated.
Those who’ve read “Not the Marrying Kind” will remember Emily Sue Phillips as the annoying little sister who loved sneaking about. In this story, she’s a very grown up young lady. I hope you enjoy today’s snippet, and that you’ll continue reading as the story progresses.

“In other words, the answer is no, you didn’t read it.” A rush of breath shot out from his lungs. “You know, Em, you pride yourself on always being so smart, always using your head. You talk about how observant you are, about how carefully you listen so you can gather all the facts–”
“Yes, of course. You know I do.”
She folded her arms across her chest and dared him to contradict her. He didn’t even stop for breath.
“—and you call yourself rational. You’re always going on about logic, but then you take whatever facts you find and throw logic right out the window, jumping headlong to whatever conclusion it is that you want to believe.”
She drew back, shocked by the vehemence of his attack. “What’s gotten into you, Ben? I swear, I don’t even know you!” Emily waved a hand. “I don’t care. It doesn’t matter what you wrote. Let’s put it all behind us now and move on.” Slowly she edged toward the wagon. “Take me out to Kat’s, let me rest a little, and we’ll talk later, all right?”
Ben didn’t budge. “I’m not going to the J Bar K.”

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little “snippet”.
