This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

Today's WeWriWa comes from The Cop, Donna's story, second in the Loving Her series. 

Donna White is one tough cop. Behind the badge, though, is a very sweet, sad, sensitive soul. Truly a woman alone, Donna is simply trying to navigate her way through life. Who is Donna? She is dedicated, determined, distinctive and deep. Donna’s rich and touching story is second in the Loving Her series.

After a brief but scalding hot shower, she stared at herself through the steamed mirror. At first, her face was blurred by the condensation. As time progressed, her face became increasingly clearer. She was definitely a good cross section of her parents.

She had her mother’s curly blonde hair and bright blue eyes. Her jaw line and tall, lean, muscular build were definitely from her father. She could see them both reflected back at her, almost as if they were standing right behind her.
“Damn it!” Donna screamed at the mirror's

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!  :)

I can feel the intensity of the personal inspection and obvious upset. Well done.

A cliffhanger alert. You paint a fascinating picture, Lauren and then she screams. Frustration, sorrow. I'm intrigued.

Awww, I feel sorry for her - that thought of her parents invoked quite the reaction! Effective excerpt....
