Saturday Snippet: SHE WONDERED IF by Zina Abbott






















The following snippet was taken from 
Two Sisters and the Christmas Groom 
Book 18, Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs 


          Tamping down the annoyance she still felt over her treatment by the bride broker, Lizett Millard, Delly feigned indifference. “By chance, did your sister contact that bridal agency listed on the newspaper clipping I left for you?”
          Annie’s smile widened. “That she did. She said to be thanking you for leaving it, as well as the paper and stamps. She was penning her letter that very night I took it to her. By the time I left, already she was writing to two men—one here in Jubilee Springs, and one in Central City.”
          Delly stared straight ahead as her memory flashed back to the harvest dance held the night Bennett agreed to marry her. That night, Royce Bainbridge, one of the owners of the Prosperity Mine, announced the name of a young Irish miner as the latest employee eligible to occupy one of the ten company houses once he married. She wondered if Mrs. Millard, with all her graphology hocus-pocus, selected him or another Jubilee Springs miner to correspond with Annie’s sister.

Top Ten List:

1. I adore cats–kittens are even more fun.
2. Claustrophia is one of my biggest challenges.
3. My favorite sports are water sports. I love swimming, boating, wake surfing, rowing around on a canoe, and simply walking along the beach of an ocean or lake.
4. I enjoy horseback riding and hope someday to take lessons so I can learn how to do it well. I'd also love to learn how to ride side saddle.
5. One of my favorite ways to have a good time with friends is having a tea party. I also love to play board games and card games.
6. Due to moves in my childhood, I attended 9 different schools including 3 junior high schools. Being the new kid isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
7. I love chocolate. Chocolate has seen me through many brutal revisions. But please hold the dark chocolate--in most cases, it's too chalky and bitter. I love MILK chocolate, with or without caramel, and with or without nuts. Mmmmm. Salted caramel is a very close second.
8. My favorite color is blue scruffy shade of blue is beautiful. I also adore pink but there are a lot of ugly shades of pink so I'm pickier on that one.
9. Though I'm not a real gardener, I love flowers, and I find it rewarding to plan and then carry out ways to add color to my yard.
10. I love to dance--any kind--but most especially ballet and ballroom. I would dance every day if I could.
