january...you start the year off fine

A bunch of my earliest books have now come out as #ebooks and as such I'll be highlighting a new one every month.  First up...my debut book THE WEDDING WISH.

Here's a passage I recently stumbled upon which I'd deleted from the final round of copy edits.  Just for you :).

As Holly drove through the light pre-rush hour traffic, the city buildings were bathed in the golden light of a soon to be setting sun.  Her mind wandered and she imagined what Jacob’s apartment would look like.

Would his place be like the unit Ben lived in before he met Beth; all football posters and beanbags and empty pizza boxes?  Maybe he would have a manly man’s bachelor pad with a bearskin rug by the fireplace, overstuffed maroon leather couches and a deer’s head on the wall.  Or was his apartment like the St John lithograph he had told her he owned - cold, bleak, and austere?

As she pulled the car to a stop at a red light she realised this picture did not gel either.

Whichever version of Jacob was to meet her at his home tonight, she just knew she was very much looking forward to his conversation.  And his laugh.  The smile in his voice, the crinkles around his eyes, the dimple in his cheek that went with that laugh.  The graceful way he lounged his well-built frame in any chair as though he had not a care in the world.

And the way he looked at her, his hazel eyes glimmering with inscrutable thoughts when he thought she wasn’t looking.  The huskiness in his honey-over-gravel voice when he told her she was gorgeous.  And -
 
The car behind her beeped its horn, as the light had turned green.  She waved in apology as she took off.
