It's a bright & sunny Sunday here in Mauritius - that perfect time just on the edges of summer and preparing for the cooler days of fall & winter. Ideal time to sit down in your front room with a cup of frothy coffee and a good read; from time to time, you look up and glance at the brilliant light outside and that's spilling through the French windows on your terrace. Hmmm, perfect for Six Sentence Sunday!
So, where were we with those excerpts? Still in Surrey, inside the double-fronted Victorian manor. We left hunky doctor Jamie Gillespie with uptight forensic pathologist Margo Nolan in Margo's kitchen last week. Margo's tween daughter, Emma, is causing some ripples in Margo's life, and Jamie's just proposed to help...
What will Margo reply?
The excerpt from last week was the cliffie ending of Chapter 3. Today, we move to the next six in the read - start of Chapter 4, Margo's POV.
What is he asking? The soft pressure of his fingers on her knuckles blew another fuse in her rational brain.
Focus, Nolan; stop acting like a slow-witted airhead - she glanced up, her eyes searching for his.
Bad move; because a clump of functioning neurons went up in smoke when she encountered the dark brown depths of his eyes; expectation, and something else, swirled in them.
Heat...unabashed longing - Margo gulped; what did the bloke want, after all?
Don't forget to check the rest of the SSS posse list today - surefire goodies can be found at Siobhan Muir, Sarah Ballance, Jessica E. Subject, Christine Warner, Cara Bristol, & Sue, among many, many others! :)
Have a lovely Sunday, peeps!
From Mauritius with love,
