It's WeWriWa time!

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 the month of May, we will be reading snippets from The Vet Student, Katie's story in the Loving Her series.

One night changed everything for Katie. From that moment on, her life was propelled forward like a rocket. Determined to escape the small town and her religious, stifling parents, Katie works hard to get into veterinary school... in Philadelphia. 

Katie refused to let anything – or anyone – destroy her dream. Not even her own parents. Even in the face of danger, Katie held true to herself and her beliefs. She suffered many losses along the way, but she gained so much more. Tumultuous and tender, Katie's story closes the Loving Her series... for now.

Background on the snippet: It's a busy Friday night, and Katie is working at the Pizza Parlor, when someone really catches her eye. This is when Linda and Katie meet.

As Katie bobbed and weaved her way through the crowd, she saw her standing in line. Tall and lean, she was everything Katie was not. Her shaggy brown hair was alluring in its own way. She wore a white button down shirt that rested loosely over her thin frame. Her light colored jeans hugged her endless legs. She stood out from the blur of people that surrounded them both.

I hope you liked it! Happy reading!

She seems to be quite the stand out in the crowd. I can't wait for the meeting.

Contrasts do have a way of catching our eyes, don't they... :-D Sometimes it really depends on that first good look.
