Happy Friday! I hope it's been a good week for you all. For this week's Christian Fiction Friday post, I'm giving you a sneak peek into a romantic suspense project I started working on a few months ago. This is my first story set in my home state of Alaska! You also might recognize a few other names if you've read my Kennedy series, as well. Enjoy!
Her whole body was shaking by the time Drisklay left, but she ignored the trembling and went back to her room to finish packing. Nothing could change her mind. Not now. She had regained control of her life for the first time since it started spinning out of control four years ago. She flipped through her wallet to see how much cash she had. Just enough to fill her tank and maybe buy a few groceries to start off in Anchorage. She didn’t know anyone out there, but that didn’t matter. Lacy was never afraid of meeting new people, seeing new places. This would be an adventure, an adventure she could control, for once.
Carl and Sandy would worry about her if they knew. They were always so safety conscious, which was probably why they were never thrilled with Raphael in the first place. But she didn’t answer to them anymore, even though she hadn’t stopped thinking of them since Raphael told her he went to their church. And if he was right, if Massachusetts was safe for her now, she could go home.
Of course, that was getting ahead of herself. First Anchorage. Give herself a few days to settle in. Decide from there what to do. It was too early to meet Raphael for lunch, but she was anxious to get on the road. There was nothing left for her here. Nothing but old memories, old identities.
Of course, there was still Kurtis.
