Glad to welcome my friend JQ Rose to Tuesday Author posts today. This is a wonderful book, I highly recommend it.
TAGLINE: Pastor Christine Hobbs never imagined she would be caring for a flock that includes a pig, a kangaroo, and a murderer.
BLURB: Pastor Christine Hobbs has been in the pulpit business for over five years. She never imagined herself caring for a flock that includes a pig, a kangaroo, and a murderer.
Detective Cole Stephens doesn’t want the pretty pastor to get away with murdering the church music director. His investigative methods infuriate Christine as much as his deep brown eyes attract her.
Can they find the real killer and build a loving relationship based on trust?
Available at amazon
EXCERPT: Dangerous Sanctuary by J.Q. Rose, Chapter 9
Christine couldn’t make the decisions. The toppings for her sub sandwich all looked good. She knew it was the height of the rush hour, and people were waiting for her. Too many choices to enhance the turkey sandwich.
“Come on, Hobbs. Make up your mind. Mustard, mayo, pickles, white American cheese, lettuce, oil.” Cole stood next to her, waiting for her to make her choices.
She glared at the pushy detective and then turned to the sandwich maker and said, “Yeah, all that plus tomato and onions.”
“Good, finally. You can dress mine the same. No tomato and extra cheese.”
Cole caught up with her at the drink station where she was debating about what pop to choose. “I imagine you are a diet cola drinker. May I pour?”
“Oh, thank you.”
“Ah, you need some caffeine, eh, Preacher?” His eyes sparkled. She relaxed and returned his smile.
“I see you have your sandwich to go. Me, too. I’ll meet you at the lakefront park for lunch at the picnic table under the big oak tree. Lots of shade and a beautiful view of the water.”
“Oh, but I have….” She stopped to check her watch. No, she didn’t have an appointment. She had the lunch hour free today. She had no excuse, and of course, a preacher couldn’t tell a lie.
“Okay, I’ll meet you there in a minute.” What was she thinking? He’s the man who’s trying to send her to prison. Well, what’s wrong with having lunch with an attractive policeman? After all there was that saying, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”
Hope you’ll check out this intriguing book. by my friend JQ Rose.
