Frst page of Finding Love:
Luke Robinson rolled into The Maple Pit’s parking lot. The restaurant looked like a refurbished barn. The red siding gleamed in the summer sunshine. He’d driven to Maple Run, Virginia for one purpose, but right now his stomach demanded sustenance, curtailing his plans. He turned off the Harley Roadster, placing his boot-clad feet on the ground. Hopefully, one of the staff could direct him to his real purpose…after they fed him.
Rising, he stretched, allowing his spine to decompress, and took his off helmet. The summer breeze blew across his face, cooling the sweat that clung to his nape and the back of his ears. The cool air was a welcomed relief, after having his face stuck in a “brain bucket” for the past few hours. His stomach grumbled, its demands louder than before. In a few steps, he strode into the restaurant.
A pretty redhead greeted him. “Welcome to The Maple Pit.” Her eyes widened as she took in his appearance.
Was it his six-foot-three frame, leather apparel, or scruffy face that did her in? Since his boots had hit American soil, he’d been growing out the hair on his face. Judging by the relaxing ambiance and dress of their customers, he’d bank on his appearance being the reason for the look of astonishment on the hostess’ face.
“Thank you, ma’am.” His voice sounded a little rusty as thirst pushed against his throat.
“Would you like to sit at the bar?”
Luke glanced around. Families were enjoying their meals in booths and tables. Was there really a point in taking up a table for just himself? He glanced at the bar. A tightness in his gut brought forth beads of sweat.
Author/book Spotlight Questions (Choose 3):
- Please describe yourself with three words. Christian. Wife. Mom.
- What do you enjoy doing for relaxation? Curling up with a good book and something to snack on. Of course, if the book is really good I’ll forget almost everything but breathing. 😉 I also enjoy playing video games. I play with my husband or with my kiddos. It’s a good way to get some quality time in and relax my brain.
- Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
That’s my dream! For now, I write on my bed, legs propped up. I use a HP laptop that sits on a lapboard so that my legs won’t have so much pressure due to chronic leg problems.
- What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful? Such a great question! I’d love it if readers would leave a review and tell a friend about the book. Reviews are vital as is word of mouth. Without it, the book may not get into intended hands.
