Six Sentence 4/23 Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone !

Here's a snippet of my 2nd book from my 'A Foreign Affair' Series titled 'Mail Order Groom'.

Enjoy your the rest of your weekend. I'll be back very soon. xoxo

Feeling as if someone had removed the last shred of optimism she attempted to hold onto for the day, Jessica Brooke turned towards the aging tow truck driver and asked.
“Is there anything else that can go wrong for me today?”
His weathered face focused on the road, the tow truck driver hid any sympathy he had for the young scientist as she continued to whine about her lifetime tolls.

It wasn’t that he didn’t want to understand where she was coming from but, at 8:45 in the morning, sleep had not yet removed itself from his sky blue eyes that were concealed rather nicely by a pair of Ray Bans.

She scanned through the morning’s events in her head. She was seemingly in a state of disbelief at the series of events that had all occurred within a span of ninety minutes.

I'm curious about what's gone wrong for poor Jessica so early in the morning. I'm hoping things are starting to go right!

Joanne Stewart said...

Yup, I'm intrigued too to know exactly how horrible her day has been. Great six.

I think what I like most of all about this is the title "Mail Order Groom." :D

Very good foreshadowing...cuz when someone asks "what else...?" usually something big happens! Nice Six1
