Six Sentence Sunday

Good morning! Today I'm bringing you a suspenseful snippet of mt upcoming release, Fractured Paradise. (It comes out Tuesday, November 6th!) I think it's pretty self-explanatory. Enjoy!

After two straight days of working in the cottage, Rachel thought she was ready to spend her first night there. She’d scrubbed, swept, and rearranged furniture.

But now that she stood in the center of the living room with her pajamas in her hands, her suitcases against the rocker, and noises coming from the walls, reality did not live up to her dreams.

Wind whistled an eerie tune through the cracked windows despite the plywood she had managed to hammer in place yesterday afternoon. The wood burned in the fireplace, yet a chill overtook her body.

Thump, thump.

There you have it! Feel free to leave me a comment or to look back at previous snippets from other Six Sentence Sundays. For more of today's entries, visit!



  1. One thump would have gotten me out of there! LOL Great snippet for Halloween week!

  2. Sounds spooky, Alexa - very appropriate for Hallowe'en!
    Many thanks for visiting Heroine with Hearts today, and for your good wishes for my book-signing session :-)

  3. Alexa, Good hook. So seasonal. Made me chill but I'm easily in the moment of fear when reading.

    Congrats on book coming out the 6th. jean
