SPOILERS



I mean,  :o  :-\, someone spying on them?

Things are never easy for them are they? Poor Colson, after having taking such a big step at the beach, now this...

I loved Ellery 'being all official'. After having found out about the Sevigny lawsuit, this was all he needed.

Thanks Louise, can't wait to find out who the spy is.

SPOILERS  Chapters 18 and 19






Holy shit, Louise!

I loved Ellery 'being all official'. 

Yeah, me too!  Especially when he's officially kicking someone's ass! LOL!  I really can't blame Colson for having a paranoid knot in his stomach - the idea of someone hiding in a closet in your hotel room, for whatever reason, is disconcerting to say the least.  I'd feel terrible if Colson's belt buckle was stolen, but I do hope it comes down to theft or attempted theft and not something else .....and Colson still hasn't found out about Sevigny!  :-\

No telling what will happen next!  Thanks, Louise!

you all just wouldn't find it exciting at all if I didn't throw in at least a LITTLE BIT of crime, right?

Well, if not being able to eat is Colson's only reaction to what's been going on, I'd say, he's doing great.


“I like my smile too much ta risk it on a maybe, sweetheart,” Ellery shot back, pouring himself a glass of wine.

 ;D  ;D


Off to work now. Thanks Louise!! :)

you scoundrel! I should post those chapters earlier!

now this week is going to be a little crazy until I hit the road Saturday morning.  My trip will bring me in the opposite direction, first to Lincoln, NE, then second stop in Rawlins, WY once more (that great showplace of Wyoming!), third stop in Reno.  I expect to have internet in all of those places and hope to get a little writing done on the road.

I did not get a chance to post a chapter, but I am updating my blog.  I am through with the first leg of my 4 day Escape from Impending Winter, on my way back to California, and I have been thinking about the next chapter.  I posted a teaser in my blog!

okey doke!

At last, a chapter 20!!!  I took a nap when I arrived in Rawlins, WY, and I still feel a bit rubbery, but I have logged 1000 miles in two days!  Holy cow!  And eaten more tacos than I want to count!
