April showers bring May flowers. So true as I see everything blooming so nicely. Hostas all over the place plus more perrenials. What a joy to sit on the back porch for a little while and soak up a bit of sunshine. The third in the River’s Edge trilogy is Spreading Her Wings to be released next week. The story begins with a frantic call to Sally Kirkwood early one summer morning from a neighbor. Sally, the intrepid reporter everyone counts on rises to the occasion.
excerpt in eight:
“Sally? Is this Sally? It’s Teresa from the Silver Belles Club. My daughter’s gone.” Close to hysteria, the woman’s voice cracked.
“Teresa.” Sally cleared her mind; Teresa who had some health issues last year.A quick glance at the clock showed 7:30. Sally crawled out of bed.
“What do you mean your daughter’s gone? I didn’t even know you had a daughter so just be cool and I’ll be right over.”
Always speedy in an emergency, Sally pulled on jeans, a shirt and tied on sneakers.
Sally Atwood, reporter extraordinaire in River’s Edge, ran three blocks from her home to knock on Teresa Maxwell’s door.
A wan red eyed thin woman opened the door to fall into Sally’s arms.
“Jack’s out of town, Misty was visiting for a few days when suddenly she got a bunch of calls, dressed, packed and when I went shopping for dinner, she left without a word.”
