Snippet Sunday ~ Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos

Happy Snippet Sunday!!!

Today I am sharing another snippet from my story Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos.

Last we left off knowing just a bit about Valentina’s life at home with her mother. Let’s catch up. If you’d like to watch me read the snippet you can watch the video below!!!


She’d been diagnosed with cancer, stage four and with no hope. She was a doctor and she knew the diagnosis was not good. It was true. Doctors made the worse patients and she was no different. Her mother had died of breast cancer. Valentina had no intentions of going through the treatment she did. Her mother had suffered for a long time, and Valentina knew she’d done it all for her. Her mother had tried to live, but in the end, death took her anyway. Hospital bed,
chemo and death didn’t appeal to her. She wanted to see the world and enjoy life as long as she could.

Her high hopes were dashed, when she caught a cold only a few weeks into her life as a vagabond. When that cold hit it started to spiral out of control. That was until she ended up in the ER of Hope Memorial and from what she saw of this little town it was most likely the only hospital they had. She met the most amazing man who just so happened to be an oncologist. Dr. Xander Carlisle convinced her there was hope and he’d be there every step of the way.


Poor Valentina, cancer!!! Thank goodness for Dr. Xander Carlisle.

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. Will their feelings come to light, along with his secret?
