Six Sentence Sunday: Sweet Tea with a Hot Guy?


Six Sentence Sunday: Where writers share six sentences from their published or unpublished books.
Here’s a snippet from LOVE DELIVERED, my contemporary romance novella. Small-town love vs. big-city dreams. Hope you enjoy! And check out Pete, the mailman...


     At the sound of three knocks on the front door, Bianca smiled and pressed the lid on the spackle bucket.
     She ran her hand over her ponytail, hoping to calm the stray locks, and raced down the carpeted steps. Her heart beat faster and her body came alive.
     Pete stood at the front door wearing a giant smile and holding a box of tea bags.
     “Figured I should start pitching in before I deplete your supply.”
     “Come in for some sweet tea?”

This has promise, but does he have time? He's not in the middle of his route, is he? Lovely six.

*smiling* nice scene. You have a polished way of tucking in details so that the reader won't be distracted. I think I notice them because I am studying what I see, not just reading the action.

Sign me up for a cup of tea with a hot guy...oh wait...I have Lipton and my husband here. :-) Have a great Easter Sunday, Joya!

Aaw what a sweetie! ;) Like the little details in the beginning too as you showed without telling that she's excited and a little nervous to see him!

Joya said...

@Kate
LOL. He finishes his route before taking time to visit with Bianca. We wouldn't let him socialize on the government's dime. Thanks for stopping by. :)

@Teresa
