My snippet today will again be from my book “Tell it to My Heart” (free for KU Subscribers), book 3 in the Alinta Bay series. I will start a new WIP very soon. Today’s snippet the start of Chapter 2 and is in Molly’s POV …

Molly stepped into her neighbour’s shower and let the warm water run over her body. It’d been a busy couple of days since her house had flooded. She’d managed to finish the website design for the Sydney company. That was well and truly before the deadline and that gave her two or three days before they might come back with any queries or requests for changes. She rumbled through her mental calendar, knowing it should be enough time to get most of the things in her house organised before she was able to move back again.
Annoyance that she hadn’t looked after the gutters more ate away at her. It was going to be a few months until the house would be in good order again. At least she had insurance and didn’t have to worry about expenses. The builder from the other day had assured her, the study and the lounge room should only have carpet damage. However, her bedroom and the spare room would be more involved. They’d been able to move most of the furniture into the garage with little or no harm. A little sigh escaped her as she thought about what lay ahead, but she was grateful for having Mrs. Fielding’s house to stay in. Molly was sure the older woman wouldn’t have minded.
She turned the water off and grabbed her towel before stepping out of the shower. It’d been another lovely, but hot day, and she was grateful Mrs. Fielding’s lawyer left the power and water on. Apparently, he’d heard back from her grandson, who was due to arrive in a few days. Sadness went through her that Mrs. Fielding’s own grandson hadn’t come to her funeral. She had always talked with so much love about him, and he didn’t even have the respect to show up. She was going to give him a good piece of her mind when he’d arrive.
As she reached for her underwear, the door opened.
