Sweet Saturday Sample

I haven't done this before so thought I'd get it done early in case I do it wrong!
Here's my sweet Saturday sample - it's from Easter Holiday - my latest release.

Noah spotted Posy’s bright pink tent later that afternoon as he walked to the campsite office. He shook his head with disbelief at the garish canvas nestled against the verdant green of the hedgerow. He strode into the camp reception.
“I see your newest arrival managed to get her tent set up then.” Noah grinned at his sister.
Emma peeked through the window and then smiled back at him. “Posy’s never been camping before.”
“I know, she told me that when I was hauling her out of the back field.”
His sister raised her eyebrows. “She was very grateful.” A dimple appeared in her cheek. “And of course she is very pretty.”
“I didn’t pay any attention. I was too busy wondering what kind of person comes camping in heels.”
Emma laughed. “The kind who’s coming out for a drink with us tonight.”
Noah glared at his sister.
“Don’t look at me like that! She asked where she could get a nice meal that didn’t cost the earth, so I said we were going to the pub later and did she want to come with us.” Emma busied herself tidying up a stack of papers on the desk.
“I hope this isn’t one of your attempts at matchmaking,” he warned. His sister was fond of introducing girls into his life. Now most of her friends were settled or married, she’d started looking further afield for potential sisters-in-law.
She pursed her lips, never a good sign.

Welcome to Sweet Saturday, Nell! What a lovely excerpt. A bright pink tent and a camper in heels would definitely stand out! Congratulations on the new release.

Love this snippet, Nell. This looks like an encounter of the immovable object meets the irresistible force. LOL. I may have to buy this one since you already sucked me in.

Hi Patricia, glad you liked it!

Hugs, thanks Jean. I loved writing this story. Noah is a lovely hero and Posy is more than a match for him.

A pink tent. I've never seen one either. Bet this girl is spunky.

Welcome to Sweet Saturday! :) How funny! Your book came up as a recommended read for me earlier this week!

A pink tent? LOL She sounds like a handful already!

Joselyn Vaughn said...

Love this. I definitely want to know who goes camping in heels.

Nell Dixon said...

Squee, Mirriam! I don't think anyone has ever told me I've been a recomended read for them before!

Nell Dixon said...

Joselyn, Posy is definitely a first time camper.

A vivid picture of your character comes to mind simply from reading about the pink tent and her high heels. Thanks for sharing!
