The creation of an online community of mystery and romantic suspense authors, we'll post seven sentence excerpts from our books...on our blogs...on Sundays.
Short. Sweet. Suspenseful.
The following excerpt is from my debut novel, DEFENDING GLORY, first book of the Piedmont Island Trilogy series.

Aidan "Mac" McKeown palmed the bullets doctors removed from his right thigh and stared out his office window. Daffodils, tulips, and marsh marigolds lined garden paths beyond the alleyway at the back of the building. The fragrant scent of lilacs sweetened the air. Robins chirped on their endless hunt for worms. It was a perfect Thursday morning in northern Minnesota. The kind his partner would have cherished.
If he were alive.
