An Almost Kiss on the Front Porch Swing #SixSunday

Happy Father’s Day!!
   Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday: Where writers share six sentences from their published or unpublished books.
   In this snippet, from LOVE DELIVERED, it’s a hot summer day and Pete and Bianca finally find time to sit on the front swing with a cool glass of iced tea.

    “You look beautiful,” Pete whispered, turning to face her.
     She gazed into his blue eyes, and her pulse kicked into high gear. “Thanks,” she said. Then she frowned and looked down at her spackle-covered shirt and cut-off jean shorts. She tugged a piece of spackle from her shorts.
     He gently lifted her chin with his fingers.

  Thanks for stopping by today!
LOVE DELIVERED is available now!!
