Last we left off with Mara waking from her scary dream!
***note this snippet is to fit a 8-10 sentence limit***


The scene faded and she was jolted awake.
She lay there in her bed for a moment and just breathed, letting the dream fade. The annoying beep continued and she rolled on her side and reached for the alarm clock to shut it off. She stayed put for a few more minutes and stared at the ceiling, her ceiling, in her room. That had been one weird dream. It had seemed so real, but… She chuckled. “No more chocolate ice cream before bedtime,” she murmured and rolled out of bed. She had a big day ahead of her.
Xiomara Montague, or as she liked to be called, Mara, always loved this time of year. Even though it was warm outside there still was a nice chill to the air, especially at night. The streets in the little town of Maple were littered with holiday decorations. There were beautiful lights, snowmen, Santa Claus, and reindeer blow up decorations on the rooftops of the houses. There were even people singing carols in the park.

 Find out what happens next week for snippet #27 of my paranormal romance At first Snowfall.

Tune in next week to see what else is going on in this little town of Maple.

Blurb: The Day of the Dead takes on a new meaning, when the dead don’t stay dead. Dr. Valentina Bellmonte, a cancer survivor, is the new coroner at Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could vampires be real?
Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but he’s unwilling to confide in her. He has a secret of his own and it’s not just how he feels about her, but something else entirely, something he’s forbidden to reveal.

  1. That was one wild dream. No wonder she wants to change her eating habits.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Seriously. Pretty intense.

  2. I like it, has a nice flow to the words that carry me along, going deeper into the story. Great snippet!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you.

  3. I hate when the foods you eat give you strange dreams. LOL!!! Great snippet.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Me too! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Karysa Faire says:

    I agree with Veronica. AND, now I want it to be winter! Great description, even in just a few sentences, of that time of year.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you. Means so much.

  5. P.T. Wyant says:

    Hmm… no more strange dreams or no more chocolate ice cream? Silly question — give me a bowl and a spoon, and some hot fudge for good measure! On a more serious note, I love the description of small town Christmas.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Lol. Thank you.

  6. She may be brushing it off now as just odd and strange, amounting it up to the chocolate ice cream, but I get the sinking feeling it’s going to come back to haunt her. Nice snippet.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Ya she really needs to take her dreams seriously. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Iris says:

    I love how you describe the winter setting in the second paragraph, although, unlike Karysa, I’m sick of Winter and can’t wait for spring to arrive 🙂 Kudos regarding the “after-dream-scene” as well. Gives chocolate ice cream a complete different meaning 🙂

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Right?! Thank you. I wish we had some winter where I am at. Its been in the 100’s for months. Lol.

  8. This is kind of scary because it’s not like I’m a huge fan of chocolate ice cream but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t make dream THAT weird. If she is pushing the hunch away she is going to get in even bigger troubles.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Oh ya. Some foods can make you dream weird things.
