Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.
She picked up the piece of paper, made her way to the shared hallway, and carefully slid her second note under his door. Unlike before, she snuck back to her rooms, giggling like a small girl hiding secrets from her parents. Giddiness swept across her and her body tingled when she finished her cup of tea.
Good Lord, she was desperate for a life. Small notes from a stranger had her beaming with excitement like a teenager.
She blew out a breath, again letting her mind wonder where she had gone wrong in her marriage for her husband to betray her so badly.
She glanced over to the door, but no return note was to be seen. Something like disappointment trickled through her as she sat on the couch. She placed her cup onto the table and reached for the TV remote. The movie she decided on didn’t hold her attention, though, and she lulled into a snooze.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

I’m most of the way through this book and should finish before I turn out the lights for the night. I’m especially impressed with how real you’ve made her ex-husband’s nastiness. It’s subtle, yet works great.
Aww, thank you so much Ed,. Not only for reading the book, but also for lovely compliment. I really appreciate it.
Such a fun snippet and I felt his disappointment that there was no instant reponse to the note this time.
Thank you Veronica 🙂
I hope she won’t be disappointed for long. 🙂
Well, she’s kind of met the hero of the story … so hopefully, no 🙂
I love the way the notes are brightening her life. They seem to be giving her something to look forward to and also providing a distraction.
Thank you PT 🙂
