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.

“Thanks, Asa,” he said to the proprietor a short time later. Hefting a wooden crate at his shoulder, he returned to the wagon, set the supplies in the bed, then swung up to the driver’s bench.
“You really want to go out to the J Bar K?”
She nodded but didn’t turn to look at him.
“I reckon I could take the time.” He picked up the reins, then glanced over his shoulder toward the crate. “Nothing in that box that Tom needs right away.”
Emily continued to stare straight ahead, but Ben caught a slight nod – or, at least, he thought he did.
The first mile crawled past in a dreadful, awkward silence. The girl at his side sat as stiff and rigid as a statue. Even so, he liked being near her, loved breathing in the delicate floral scent of her fair skin. He wished he could put her at ease somehow.

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