Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work. It could be a work in progress or a completed piece. It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.
Today, we are back with A Legacy of Lies, one of my many works in progress. The one you’re all familiar with.
Jacob (the hero), is trying to find his missing sister Julia, and her best friend Elissa (the heroine), is determined to help him. Only, Jacob has the hots for Elissa and he’s trying, very desperately, not to. You can see last week’s snippet here. The following snippet carries on from there. They had arrived at an abandoned motel hoping to find Julia, but she was gone by the time they got there. Jacob did, however, find a clue that he’s certain is from his sister.
Jacob closed his fist around the dirty crumpled piece of paper in the palm of his hand, and closed his eyes. She’d been here, only a short time ago. As soon as he’d stepped inside the room, he’d known—her scent lay everywhere. The comforting scent of his baby sister—overridden with the stench of her fear—but he detected a hint of anger, and that’s all he needed, because that little bit of pissed off would keep her fighting.
He rose to his full height and turned to face Elissa, who looked up at him with concern and questions in her eyes. “Let’s go.”
“To find Julia.”

I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
