Love this line: "that’s kind of like saying you’re quitting drinking, and then having a glass of wine every night with dinner.” LOL!

This is my pick for Superb Snippet of the week. I'll be contacting you with an award graphic. Thanks for posting this. :)

Cara Bristol

Alexa's tone of voice was gentle, but her expression seemed a bit disapproving. -- Love the way you convey emotion in the small details.

Donna Cummings

J. Rose, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed my snippet. And I appreciate the award. :)

Cara, thanks so much. I always appreciate your comments. :)

Karla Doyle

Great snippet, Donna. Love that line about quitting drinking--so funny!

A.S. Fenichel

I'm glad you're back, Donna. Great humor while still giving a lot of insight into your character. Well done!

Shannyn Schroeder

Great snippet. It reveals so much about both characters. Plus I like a commitment-phone heroine.

Kate Warren

No one like a best friend to make you see the truth about yourself, in as gentle a way as possible. Great eight, Donna.

I'm definitely going to reread this novel, maybe in paperback. :o)

S. J. Maylee

I like the drinking line too, especially with the added touch of Shelby pushing her glass away after her reply. Your writing is entertaining and then you add in these fun little things that really pull it all together.


that's what best friends do - tell you the truth. Good characterization

Linda Morris

It's funny, but it has a lot of truth to it, as well as insight into her character. We've all known people like that or we are people like that. Well done!

Veronica Scott

Sometimes your friends are the only ones who will tell you what you have to hear. Enjoyed the excerpt very much!

Cindy Amrhein ( @historysleuth1 )

Ah, her friend knows her better than she knows herself. Very realistic character interaction.

History Sleuth's Writings

Linda Hamonou

That was funny because it's two point of view clashing. Maybe there is nothing wrong with her and she just hasn't find the right guy yet.
