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!  :)

Yes, it's time for another WeWriWa!

This week, I'm doing an excerpt from The Peace Officer, book 5 in the Loving Her series.

Brynn Racanelli - daughter, sister, friend, partner, police officer... and so much more. Devoted to serving others through her police work, and to helping her sister who battles chronic Lyme Disease, she is the the poster child of selflessness. But she does have wants, needs, hopes, and dreams. Will fate finally bring her the life and love she’s always dreamed of?

The early morning sky looked like a giant baby blanket. Perfect layers of pastel pink, yellow and blue colors; the fluffy clouds provided the quilting. Nothing, not even the chill in the early November air, could penetrate Brynn’s sense of freedom and satisfaction.

Her horse, Petunia, raced as hard as she could. The trees and landscape around them were nothing more than a blur of various colors. Petunia’s white and grey dappled neck and face were striking against the backdrop of this autumn morning. She snorted as she ran faster and faster. Brynn held the reins right against her neck, at the base of her mane.

Happy Reading!!!  :)

Breathtaking description here, Lauren. You captured me and brought me right into the scene so effortlessly.

Cindy Amrhein said...

Excellent descriptions in the snippet. I saw everything clearly in my mind.

Very, very nice way of using colors as imagery in this snippet. I especially like the way you describe the sky - it's so realistic, yet it's so hard to find the right words.

Always the worry-wart, i hope she doesn't get careless racing on the horse with this sense of freedom. Well done descriptions, I could practically feel the rush of air.
