Jack and Katie’s story, Tomorrow Doesn’t Matter Tonight is in final edits. I decided to give a sneak preview of their upcoming adventure.
A little background on how I came up with the idea. The story stemmed from a personal experience and a concept I’d had in the back of my mind for many years. I put the two together and let the characters run. This was a fun book to write and I was entertained with the “darker” personalities that materialized as the story unfolded.
Drop me a note and let me know what you think of the excerpt. I’ll be revealing as the release gets closer.
Jack glanced at her. “Why did you bring the knife with you tonight? What’s your motive?”
Katie stopped in mid-bite. “I don’t have a motive. I’m confused how to handle this. I thought you might give me some advice.”
He shrugged. “Report the break in and turn it over to the police would seem the logical way to go.”
“Logical? I want to stay as far away from the police right now. They may somehow link this to Hazel’s murder. “
“Avoiding them doesn’t solve your problem. If you’re so nervous about talking with them, take counsel with you.”
She slammed her utensil onto the table and glared across at him. “Will you knock off the lawyer bit, legal boy? I got it. I’ll get an attorney, but right now I need some reassurance from you.”
Jack sat back in his chair and said through clenched teeth, “A little louder, please. The kitchen staff didn’t hear the last part.”
He leaned forward and whispered, “You’re yelling really loud. The whole place is staring at us.”
Katie glanced around. She’d raised her voice too high, and the entire restaurant watched them. She smiled timidly and spoke to the crowd.
“Communication exercises. We’re in couple’s therapy.”
“Aaahhh’s” floated through the room and heads bobbed as the patrons returned to their meals.
Jack stabbed his meat. “Nice save.”
