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.

“Sometimes I’m not sure I want to be a teacher.” When she glanced his way, Ben saw tears still glistening in the corners of her beautiful, dark-fringed eyes. “To tell the truth, school is a lot harder than I expected it to be. I hate it.”
“Give it time.”
“It’s a miserable place,” she went on, paying him no heed. “I’m not especially fond of Miss Brundage, either. She’s a dreadful old hag who goes out of her way to make sure everybody around her is as unhappy as she is.”
“It can’t be all that bad.”
Again, she paid him no mind.
“And then, there’s Hattie Mae. My roommate,” she explained. “She’s a dear girl, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that she has a tendency to grate on my nerves a bit.” Emily drew in a deep breath. “Mostly, Ben, I don’t like being away from home.” She turned to him with hope shining in her tear-filled eyes. “I don’t like being away from you.”

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