INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.
Here’s another little snippet.
“Advice is what we ask for when we already
know the answer, but wish we didn’t.”
Emma kneeled next to her and held both Nadine’s hands. The right words escaped her, and she had no idea what to say. Her heart ached looking into the girl’s eyes. Admiration towards her grew more and more. “Honey, I honestly don’t know, but I can’t see a reason why he wouldn’t. You’re a gorgeous young girl.” She tucked a strand of hair behind Nadine’s ear. “He’s probably just as afraid as you are at the moment. Afraid of having a little girl all of a sudden.”
Nadine threw her arms around Emma’s neck and sobbed. “What if he doesn’t like me? Then I have nobody to look after me.”
A knot formed in Emma’s stomach. “Naddie, honey. Of course he’ll like you, and you will still have your grandparents.” Emma gave her a long hug before taking her hand. “Let’s get to meet your dad. I’ll be with you all the way.”
The girl wiped the tears with the back of her hand. “Promise?”
“Pinky swear.” They both hooked up their little fingers and pulled. And a hesitant smile returned to Nadine’s face.
Once they returned to the hotel, Emma spotted Flynn in the lobby straight away. How could she miss him? He sat in the corner near the window, sunlight reflecting on his hair. Dressed again in a neat business suit, his sunglasses on top of his head, he seemed to stare into the distance. The way his hands fiddled with a plastic
bag, she assumed he was just as nervous.

Poignant meeting. Hope all goes well.
Thank you Gem. Let’s hope so.
They’re both nervous. That’s a good sign, I hope.
I’d say so, too. He doesn’t take it light-heartedly. Thanks Ed for stopping by.
Their conversation sounds so natural – great piece!

This is so heart-wrenching and perfect for Father’s Day! I feel for both of them. Great snippet!

Aww, poor baby. At least she still has someone to help her through such an emotional time. It’s going to be a bit of a bumpy time for a while, isn’t it?
Yes, it is 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Aldrea.
I’m sure he is nervous as well. This is a life changing moment.
Oh, it is indeed. And a bit scary, I suppose. Thanks for stopping by, Elaine.
Oh, she is so good with her. I’m sure she can help ease the transition. I hope all goes well!
Thank you, Elizabeth. We’ll find out soon 🙂
Very sweet scene. Poor Nadine…such an emotional time for her, but I sense things will be all right. 🙂
Yes, it is very emotional. Thanks for stopping by, Addison.
I really have to wonder about her relationship with her grandparents…
Not sure whether I’d use the word ‘relationship’ 😉 Better times ahead, though. Thanks for stopping by, PT 🙂
Lovw how the dialogue has a natural flow.
