Saturday Snippet: He Definitely Was Under Pressure

The following snippet is taken from

Kate's Railroad Chef 

Train Wreck in Jubilee Springs

Book 3 

 

            This night, Garland definitely felt under pressure. Repeatedly, townspeople from Jubilee Springs as well as Monarch Bend located ten miles from the rail line came to his window asking when the train would arrive. He increasingly found himself gritting his teeth in order to maintain a calm, professional manner as he repeated what he knew, which was next to nothing. Among those who had appeared before him was Royce Bainbridge, the Prosperity Mine owner in charge of dealing with the brides coming for the miners. Garland could not think of a worse weekend for the newest bunch of brides, along with the woman from the bridal agency, to make the trip into Jubilee Springs.

            Then again, there was no guarantee that train travel in these mountains over the next several months would be any better.

            He also recognized Annie Flanagan, the woman who came to town to work as a maid for the Nighy family. Since she did not read or write, several weeks earlier he helped her write a letter to her sister. Annie encouraged her to choose the marriage prospect in Jubilee Springs so the two could live close to each other. Garland realized her sister, Kate, must have accepted Michael O’Hare’s marriage proposal and was due in on this train. 


Kate's Railroad Chef is currently on preorder and will be released on January 12th. To find the book description and purchase link, please CLICK HERE.

Saturday Snippet: She Intended to Stay and Talk



The following snippet is taken from

Two Sisters and the Christmas Groom 

Train Wreck in Jubilee Springs, Book 1

 

          “I’ve a bit of extra time this morning, and I’m needing to learn more about the train schedule. I’m hoping my sister will be arriving in the next few weeks.”

          Garland nodded in acknowledgement. “Ah, yes. If I recall, that would be the Miss Flanagan who has been writing to Mr. O’Hare, correct?”

          “You’ve a good memory, Mr….sorry I am, but I’ve been learning so many new names this past month…”

          “McAllister. Garland McAllister. No need to apologize. It was the s-same for me when I first arrived here.” He inwardly sighed with resignation as he realized that, with the way Annie Flanagan tipped her head and studied him, she intended to stay and talk awhile.

        

Two Sisters and the Christmas Groom is available for sale or for no additional cost with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. To find the book description and purchase link, please CLICK HERE.




 
The above book was Book 18 in the Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs series. I have since pulled it and Book 19, Nathan's Nurse, out to combine them with my upcoming release, Kate's Railroad Chef, to form the Train Wreck in Jubilee Springs series.
 


Kate's Railroad Chef is now available for preorder and will be released on January 12th. Please CLICK HERE to read the book description and find the preorder link.

Saturday Snippet: The Screech of Metal Against Metal

  

 The following snippet is taken from 

Nathan's Nurse 

Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs Book 19


          The screech of metal against metal, accompanied by sharp jerks of the train, jolted Dahlia awake. Instinctively, she thrust her hand forward to grab the back of the seat in front of her in an effort not to slide out of her seat. Next, as she felt her valise slide backward, she turned and grabbed for it, only to discover it being held in place. She twisted in her seat enough to see Lizett clinging to it. It must have cushioned the woman’s head from being thrown against the hard wood top edge of Dahlia’s and Kate’s bench back. As if in a daze, her eyes blinking, Lizett, her stylish hat askew on her head and strands of hair escaping her pins, forced her body back into her seat as she released Dahlia’s valise.

          Dahlia pulled the valise into her lap and turned to see how Kate fared. Although the coal stove had been allowed to cool, she knew the metal would still be hot to the touch and could burn her friend if she had been thrown against it.

          Kate, her eyes wide with fright and her hands clinging to the blanket that had slipped off of Dahlia’s lap, slouched on the bench and braced her body with feet widely planted on the floor.

          Wishing to ask Kate if she was all right, Dahlia opened to her mouth to shout above the cacophony of panicked cries and the shriek of the metal wheels against the rails, only to be thrown forward as the passenger coach came to an abrupt halt.

I have three books which deal with different details and viewpoints of the train wreck in my hypothetical town of Jubilee Springs that took place in December 1881. The first two, Two Sisters and the Christmas Groom and Nathan's Nurse were published in 2019. The third book, Kate's Railroad Chef, will be published January 2021.

I will have a cover reveal for Kate's Railroad Chef on Monday, December 28th, plus I will have a book link for preorders available at that time. 

If you helped provide feedback earlier this month on either the Whispers of Wyoming Christmas Extravaganza or the Inspirational Reads and Authors 12 Days of Christmas events, I thank you. I also want to warn you--what I eventually decided upon for the cover might surprise you. (Your input really helped.)

You may find details of the cover reveal three places:

  • on this blog, 
  • my newsletter for which you can sign up by CLICKING HERE, or 
  • between 9:20-11:00am Pacific time (11:20am-1:00pm Central time) on the Facebook group, Christian Sweet-n-Clean Book Launches event, which you may find by CLICKING HERE.
