Does anyone else find it hard to believe that the first Sunday in June has arrived? It’s terrifying how quickly time passes when you get a bit older and don’t have summer vacation to look forward to. On days like today, I doubt my decision to pursue a degree in business and find myself longing for the ten-month schedule of a school teacher.
Today’s six is a continuation of last week’s six, from my second book, Flight Risk:
After a ten-year absence, Evelyn Ryan returns to Nashville with her boyfriend, Will—who knows very little of Evelyn’s past. During the visit, Evelyn is confronted by friends she once knew and the love she had abandoned.

“Well, would you look who found her way back to Nashville after all this time?”
Her husky voice was exactly as I remembered, thick as Tennessee whiskey and just as dark.
I turned to face my old friend, feeling mildly embarrassed that I had silently prayed for today to have been her day off—or that she had sold the place altogether. “Hey, Mags.”
“You say, ‘hey,’ to someone you barely know, like a creepy cousin who tried to tongue-kiss you at the family reunion. Now, get over here and give me a hug, sugar!”

I hope you enjoyed reading these as much as I enjoyed writing them!
