Tom confides in December! #8sunday… Snippet #2…8/3/14

Hi Everyone! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the Weekend Writing Warriors! I really enjoyed it last weekend. The feedback was great and I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid. This scene shows the two main characters, Tom Elmswood and December Brown getting to know each other better when Tom confides in her about his rocky relationship with his mother.

“I saw her twice a year for school holidays, where she’d take me to our husband-hunting mother/son bonding lunch date. Could you really get that close in that sort of situation?”

“Husband hunting? Were you the lure?” December asked, setting the hot drink out in front of him.
