Weekend Snippets #9

Welcome back to Weekend Snippets.
Here is a short snippet from my soon to-be-released book, FOREWARNING.

Kasey has awakened suddenly in the midst of a storm but doesn’t know why.


She grabbed a flashlight from her nightstand and rushed across the chilly room to the window. Rain blotted out everything beyond the porch. Foreboding tightened her chest and restricted her breathing. Whatever was going on was serious.

A sudden wave of pain hit her, sending needles through her hand and stomach and setting her head throbbing. She gasped and braced herself against the windowsill. Someone—a man and a stranger by the unfamiliar feel—was badly hurt. That was why Star woke her. The mare sensed his pain.


Forewarning CoverGrieving and guilt-stricken after her husband’s suicide, Kasey Martin has closed her energetic healing practice and retreated to her Oregon horse ranch. One night, she rescues a badly injured man, and against her better judgment, uses her neglected skills to save his life. This starts her on an unexpected journey of healing and danger.  Complicating her life is Jim Bradley, an old friend who has long been in love with her and wants her to return to her work. When criminals looking for her patient invade the serenity of her world, she must use her skills to save all three of their lives.


FOREWARNING will be released on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and Smashwords next week.

Happy reading!

  1. It must be so hard for her to be alone at the ranch, especially on night like this. I wouldn’t feel too reassured either.

  2. I actually like thunderstorms. But something wrong with the horses? That’s going too far! (Well done!)

  3. Yeah, storms can be fun, though I’m not too fond of when the lightening gets too close.

    I changed the snippet, so now she has a reason for why she’s awake.
