Tuesday Teaser & Intro: Tumble Creek


I read this one a while back. I was pulled in by cover love…but I did not love all that much.

Synopsis ~ Tumble Creek

Art teacher and occasional life model Sofie Dove wants to know what’s up with Brock Stewart. Everything about the ex SAS soldier turned police officer seems to scream passion—and it’s all for her—but he just won’t express it. All she knows is he has a past that still keeps him up some nights.

After a semi-trailer crashes through Sofie’s house and the driver disappears into thin air, Brock insists he’s the only one who can keep her safe—but can he, when they can’t seem to trust each other?

While Sofie works on figuring out why this man keeps giving her mixed messages, Brock is determined to find out who’s out to get her—as they both find out why falling in love is a bit like being hit by a truck.


Chapter 1 

Sofie Dove should’ve been ecstatic this morning, but for some bizaare reason, unease twisted inside her. An ominous expectancy, so poerful it made the skin at her nape prickle and her stomach tie in knots.



“You need to grow a pair,” he whispered into the night.  [Loc 1190]


Three hours later Doreen asked Claudia to come visit and gave her address as twenty-two Lavender Lane – where Sofie and Claudia lived before their house had been demolished. “Oh.” Claudia gave her mum a wide-eyed look, then turned back to Doreen and carried on as if nothing were amiss.  [Loc 2063]
