Weekend Snippets #5

Welcome back to Weekend Snippets.

Here’s the next to last snippet from the first scene of WYOMING ESCAPE. Mikela Richards is running in a woodsy park when she hears gunfire, sees a man with a gun, finds a dead body and runs away when someone comes out of the woods.

The footsteps following her faded. She glanced over her shoulder as she rounded a bend and spied no one. Had he stopped chasing her? Or had he used the shorter trail? She reached the edge of the parking lot a few minutes later, paused behind a bush and peered out. No one was in sight.

The five or six vehicles now scattered around the parking area reduced her car’s conspicuousness. She dashed to the SUV, ripped off the magnetic signs on each side, and threw them inside. Moments later, her tires squealed on the asphalt as she sped out the exit.

 

You can find Wyoming Escape on most e-reader sites: Kindle, Nook, Apple, Kobo and Smashwords

  1. Again, smart girl!

    Let’s hope he didn’t see her—or whomever was chasing him.

  2. Really like this rush to her car, and her quick thinking.

  3. I hope she gets away safe!

    I’d like to believe she got a way Scott-free, but I’m thinking he paused in the woods and watched her moves. Eep. Great tension in this snippet, Kate. 🙂

  5. Ooh, she made it – yay! But there has to be more, which keeps me on the edge of my seat. Excellent excerpt!

  6. She made it, but did he see her? Gotta know. 🙂

  7. Great tension, Kate! I like how she had the thought to rip off the magnetic signs from her doors. But something tells me it won’t matter…

  8. She made it! Great tension in such a short few sentences!

  9. Whew, she got away … This time. I wonder what happened and who ran after her? Looking forward to more of this.

  10. You may get two of these as WP wasn’t playing nice with my iPad today.

    Anyway, glad she got away but I wonder what happened and who is chased her. Looking forward to more of this story.

  11. Nice fast-paced action scene. Well done!

  12. Ugh, that’s definitely not something anyone wants to see. I’d definitely be running for the nearest escape route. Very suspenseful. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  13. Nice way to keep the suspense in the scene 🙂

  14. Gem

    She used her head. I like this woman. Great snippet.

  15. I suspect that she is clever, but the mysterious man may be just as clever. We don’t know if he’s dangerous for sure. Love the suspense.

  16. Great tension-filled teaser! Looking forward to finding out more next week!
