In the Pirates vs Cowboys showdown, Team Cowboy held the lead pretty much the entire time and won by a landslide. I’m hard at work on LOVE’S GOLD MEDAL and, at the time of this posting, have over 2k words on the page.
Here’s a little preview of the unedited first scene:
Emma Fairchild watched the bouquet sail through the air. No. Please, God, no! Don’t let it—she started to pray but her arm betrayed her, shooting into the air. Her hand wrapped around the stems of the wildflowers as effortlessly as a shortstop catching a pop fly at a baseball game.
Michael, her twelve-year-old son, pumped his fist in the air. “Yeah, go mom!”
“You’re next, Emma!” Caroline Mason mimicked her grandson and then simultaneously raised one eyebrow, winked and tilted her head to the left.
Emma followed her stepmother’s gaze and suppressed a groan. There stood Lincoln Porter in a pair of black jeans, a white shirt, and a bolo tie. Snakeskin boots and a black Stetson completed the ensemble. Before she could look away, the cowboy raised two fingers to the brim of his hat and nodded at her. A smile played at the corner of his mouth.
Before she could respond, Elise Nelson stepped in front of her and nodded at the bouquet of colorful blossoms. “So Emma, when’s the big day?”
Elise Nelson is the youth pastor at First Street Church. She and Emma will get to know each other fairly well when Michael has trouble with bullies and starts hiding things from the adults in his life.
Because Lincoln also had trouble with bullies as a kid, he relates to Michael and tries to help…even though Emma insists she doesn’t need (or want) a village to help bring up her only child.
Sparks will fly and things will be said, but can these two work out their differences before Michael makes a choice that could affect the rest of his life?
If you missed it, LOVE’S SILVER LINING, which explains how Emma and Michael landed in Sweet Grove, Texas, is now available on Amazon. If you already read it, keep in mind that an honest review means the world to authors like me.
Don’t forget to check out the other Sweet Grove books, too!
