Last we left off with:
Mara is now awake from that scary dream and talking about this beautiful town she lives in and talking about a business her mom pushed her to open. Skipping ahead a Chapter, it is not opening night at her cafe and the whole town is there including the mayor. There is one other unexpected visitor..or is there? The cafe is now closed and Mara and her mother walked home together after a successful opening of the cafe.
***note this snippet is to fit a 8-10 sentence limit***


Her mother headed into the house and she was about to follow, but a familiar voice had stopped her in her tracks.

It couldn’t be? Could it?

Too afraid to turn around she stayed rooted in her spot, but then the man called her name again. “Xiomara!”

The only other person she allowed in her life to call her by her full first name was Mauricio. She hadn’t seen him in… well, over two months.

Had he been at the café then? Had she really seen him there? She closed her eyes and swallowed back the lump in her throat.

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?

    Nice snippet. I love the way the uncertainty about who’s calling her is built up.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you.

  2. Love the photo you chose for Mauricio. 🙂 Enjoyed the snippet and the mystery behind who is calling her name. 🙂 Of course it just has to be Mauricio. I bet he has a lot of explaining to do. Where’s he been for 2 months?

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you, isn’t he dreamy?! Of course it’s him. Can’t wait to share where he’s been all this time

  3. nancygoldberglevine says:

    Oh, I like this Cecelia–can’t wait to meet Mauricio!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Can’t wait to share more with you

  4. I do love the cover and best wishes on the release! I enjoyed the tension in the snippet – is he there or isn’t he??? Great stuff!

  5. Iris says:

    Loooove the pic …. interesting snippet today.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you.

  6. Jeff Tsuruoka says:

    Hmmm. You’ve done a great job of building anticipation for the reveal of who is speaking to her. It’s well-paced too. Nice!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thanks after this part it’s all fast paced from here.

  7. OH, I wonder if she’s going to be happy to see him…

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      We’ll see. 😉

  8. She doesn’t seem really happy to hear him. I wonder why he disappeared in the first place. Or is she afraid that she is hallucinating again?

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Oh she is not happy with him. Cant wait to share why.

  9. Uh oh… Swallowing past the lump in one’s throat is never a good sign. Bad memories with this guy? Nervousness? Not wanting to face him? Hmm, the possibilities are endless here. I want to know what happened between these two now. Nice snippet.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you. More to share today!
