Welcome to Saturday Spankings! I love that we can share news about our writing here and I do have something to share – it’s almost here! The forth book, Cassie’s River Living, will be out on September 3rd. I received the cover just a few days ago and I truly love it. It seems to capture the peace and tranquility Tom is always dreaming of, but peace and tranquility are sometime hard to find when Cassie and Sue get together.
This snippet takes place later in the day from by last snippet. On one of their regular walks the girls explore a house under construction and manage to become stuck in a room of the house, leaving Willow to whine anxiously at the door.
Sue finally ordered, “Would you just get on the phone and call somebody to get us out of here?”
I definitely wanted to keep the boys out of this, maybe I could get Kate or Allie. I reached for my phone when it hit me, “Oh dear…”
“What?” asked Sue, instantly alert, “you told me you had your phone.”
“I do,” I assured her. “It’s just that… well … ummm… It’s in Willow’s backpack.”
“I put it in the backpack that I put on Willow – she like to wear it so I always put my phone, ID and a bottle of water in there.”
“The stupid dog has the phone?” Sue snapped.
“She’s not stupid!” I roared.
“Fine,” Sue nearly hissed. “The dog is brilliant. So why don’t you shout our there to old Lassie that she needs to get on the phone and let somebody know that Timmy fell in the damn well!”
