Happy Sunday! My revisions are done. WooHoo!!!! Now my manuscript is being read by a beta reader and I’m combing through the manuscript for typos. Yikes! So many. This is not going to be a fast project. Ready for another snippet? It’s a few sentences longer than six today, but I love this little exchange between Hope and her sister, Claire.
“Nicely done, sis. She never saw it coming,” Claire said as she took one final look in the mirror. “You know you have a serious problem.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Hope lifted the tray of pastries off of the granite countertop.
“She just asked you to help, didn’t she? Fess up, what did you do with the high school students she hired?”
Hope shook her head. “Don’t be ridiculous. I’m just lending a hand.”
“Is that all you’re doing? My guess is right now you’re thinking about re-arranging the pastries, aren’t you?” Claire asked, pointing to the silver tray.
