Snippet Sunday ~ Afterlife 2016 Be My Everything Valentine’s Day Collection

Welcome back readers!

Last week we left off with Scotlynn finding out the reason behind Marshall’s spirit coming to find her. His step mother and her crazy hush hush boyfriend tried to kill him and his father. Thank the lucky stars Marshall’s dad is still alive but he is still living in the house with that crazy woman. Not so lucky for Marshall…cause well he’s dead. We are going to pick up were we left off from last snippet.

*****

I cover my mouth in horror at the thought of Marshall being murdered by his stepmother. He couldn’t be serious. Could he? No. That’s something one watched on a daytime soap opera – evil stepmother and boyfriend try to kill rich husband and his family to inherit billions– or something just as diabolical. She liked it better when it played out from a script and not something in real life.

“You’re serious?” I asked. “Valerie seemed like she loved your dad.”
He nodded.

Valerie and Augustine Kingston were the perfect couple – at least on the surface. They did everything together. They’d been married since Marshall was around five-years old. Valerie is gorgeous–small in stature and petite with shoulder-length, crimson highlighted black hair that had a natural wave to it. Marshall’s father Augustine – tall and really built for a fifty something year old. His hair had been dark once, but now he has the whole salt and pepper look going on. Looked good on him too.

How crazy is Valerie? Even getting her side man to help her. What was she thinking?

Catch up with us next week to find out more.

Come back Friday’s for Reading Corner Friday’s.

Thank you so much to taking time and stopping by to read my snippets. I really appreciate it!

    Fun premise…hope it all works out in the end.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thanks. Glad you’re enjoying it.

  3. Great imagery of the characters. Sounds like a soap opera kind of murder all right. I would much rather leave the diabolical to the scripts and not have it play out in real life, too. Great snippet.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thanks. Lol. I just love drama in shows and books.

  4. Ed Hoornaert says:

    She sounds like the evil mother incarnate, at least as far as I could tell. The pink letters made it hard for my poor eyes to focus.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you for letting me. I’ll choose a better color next time.

  5. Oh wow, diabolical plot going on here!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      VERY!!! I love soap operas….can you tell?

  6. Iris says:

    Nice descriptions …. well done.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you.

  7. Wow, she really sounds like bad news! I’m sure there’s lots more intrigue on the way too. Great snippet!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      thanks!

  8. P.T. Wyant says:

    Even in the best of families and most perfect relationships there can be darkness.

    (Also, in the first paragraph you start out in 1st person and end up in 3rd.)

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Very true. I do? Thanks for the catch.

  9. Karysa Faire says:

    They DO sound like the perfect couple. I wonder what happened?

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      He just didn’t love her gift, he didn’t believe in it. He does now. Thanks for visiting.

  10. Things can be so different from the way they look… You really bring some life to the descriptions of the characters. Great snippet!

      Thanks.
