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!  :)

For January, we are going to explore The Mechanic. This is Linda's story in the Loving Her series.Linda. Her name means beautiful. Linda's life, though, is anything but beautiful. Independent, head strong and perhaps even a bit vindictive, Linda is both tough and vulnerable. Linda survives the unthinkable from both family and strangers alike. Linda is not one to be kept down. As long as she stays true to herself, she knows that her life will one day, indeed, be beautiful. Linda's incredibly powerful story is the third book in the Loving Her series.

Linda was floored by the sight before her. The front door of the shop was wide open. The windows had been smashed from the inside out. Tools and equipment were tossed around like a tornado had ripped through the shop. Linda’s desk had been flipped over. The cash register lay in pieces, and what was left of the drawer was devoid of any money. Graffiti was sprayed everywhere. The bay doors were folded like accordions.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!

This has to be a very nerve wracking scene to walk in on, a total violation of security. Great snippet.

Great description of the scene and now the question is who and why?

Oh, this scene is horrific! Variations on this scene have been stuff of nightmares for me for years! Great job getting my heart going with those descriptions! :-)
