Saturday Snippet: You Didn't Have to Do That

I'm working on Diantha, my second book in the series, 
The Widows of Wildcat Ridge.
Here is an excerpt from Nissa about Diantha.
            Nissa’s shoulders sagged with relief, and her face pinked with embarrassment. She knew the cookies were left over from those Diantha had baked and offered as an evening treat for her few hotel guests. She hated accepting charity. She often wondered if Diantha kept an eye on the food supplies Nissa stored on a shelf in the hotel kitchen pantry. She suspected her landlady knew Nissa struggled to provide enough for her children to not go hungry. Even then, their diet consisted of inexpensive basics. She often went without full meals herself in order for the children to have enough.
            “Thank you, Diantha, but you didn’t have to do that.”
            “I know, but I wanted to. I have so little opportunity to be around children, I enjoy spending time with yours.”
            Nissa turned away at the wistful expression that came over Diantha’s face. Although, like her, Diantha was wed young as part of an arranged marriage, Nissa knew she had never been able to have children of her own.

Both Nissa and Diantha are stand-alone novels. However, they also can be read like a duet--a two book mini-series within a series. Please CLICK HERE to find the book description and purchase link for Nissa. Diantha is scheduled for publication on April 1, 2019, and will be available on preorder soon.

To find all the other books in the series, The Widows of Wildcat Ridge, please join the Facebook readers group for the series which you may find by CLICKING HERE. It will be more fun to read about some of the events mentioned in Diantha if you have already read about them in earlier books.
