Six Sentence Sunday-12

With so many wondering last week what Alison and Ezra were looking out the window at, I thought I’d answer the question. Don’t get any ideas I’m turning soft on you, I’m not.

But I can only do it in five not six sentences. Then again, I sort of cheated and gave you eight sentences a few weeks ago so this should make up for the extra.

This five is in Ezra’s POV a few minutes before Alison arrives. To refresh your memory just scroll down to reread my heart wrenching six from last week.

With a glance to the right, he felt a twinge of sadness force its way into his mind. He let his gaze settle on two small white headstones on either side of a marble statue of a sleeping dog.

The sound of an approaching car caught his attention. The concussion of a backfire made him jump and groan. IS she ever going to get that fixed?

Blurb of Target Identified

The body count continues to rise. Unexplained stock transfers persist. Is there any connection between the two, or is it coincidence?

Ezra Swanson receives a mysterious note. Far more cryptic than the one he’d received the year before.

On the anniversary of her brothers funeral Alison Swanson observes a soldier place something by his headstone. Could this person hold a clue to what’s been going on, or is he the stranger she’d met twice before?

When she returns to Myrtle Beach, Sergeant Richard Bosch, the soldier from the funeral, is also staying there along with his collie.

Alison and Richard return to her parents’ home in DC only to find someone has kidnapped her father.

During their attempts to rescue her father, Alison and Richard confront a possible suspect, Shane Goodrich. Unfortunately, he has the perfect alibi.

Richard is captured when he sets out, with the help of several special ops friends, to rescue her father.

Now it falls on Alison, her feminine logic and planning to save not only her father but also Richard.

Identified and cornered will the perpetrator of the murders, kidnapping and stock thefts escape; or will they get what is coming to them?

    very nice. Just home from a friend’s BBQ where we were greatly entertained by one of her dogs, not a collie, though still entertaining. And not long ago she had to put down her dog who lived with her for about 15 years. So I can better appreciate this snippet. Terrible sentence structure I know – 😀

  2. Lisa Fox says:

    Well, at least she announces her arrival. Great, um, five! Ha!

  3. lol is he more concerned about the car or her?

    Your blog rocks, Lindsay. TI just moved up on the TBR list.

  5. Taryn Kincaid says:

    Intriguing snippet, Lindsay! Best wishes for a great release with Target Identified.

  6. Why fix something that heralds the entrance so well?

  7. Love the different emotions you’ve got playing through this snippet. First the sadness, then the interjecting bit of humor with the car. Great six!

  8. Lorien Velez says:

    Great show of emotion and conflict. Nicely done. 🙂

  9. J.A. Beard says:

    Interesting. I wasn’t sure what it would be. I like the emotional texture here.

  10. Action, thrill! Great snippet. Congrats on the impending release.

  11. Lindsay says:

    Only a mere 9 days, OMG, until I release the book. Can any of you say-NERVOUS. SCARED. Panic is starting to set in. Guess it’s time for a glass of wine.

  12. Lindsay says:

    New fun for the reader to figure out the who’s who and the what happened.

  13. He sounds compassionate. I like that. Makes me want to find out what happens to him.

  14. jennajaxon says:

    Sorry I’m late to the party. Couldn’t find you earlier. Glad the mystery of the statue is solved. Very moving. Congrats on the impending release. Why the nerves? It sounds wonderful.

    • Lindsay says:

      You’re not late for the party. I’m late getting through all the postings. I had to take time out to finish and test the formating of the book. This is the first time I’ve self published, that’s why the nerves. Then again Target Identified is the first story I’ve actually not only enjoyed writing but even reading.
      I’m sort of glad I couldn’t sell it so I can control everything including the promo of the story. To that end, if you or anyone you know wants to do an interview I’m open.

      • jennajaxon says:

        Never done an interview on my blog before but I’m game if you are. Email me at and maybe we can set something up. I see you are releasing on June 1. Mine’s been moved to June 3 so I’m available after that. Sounds like a plan to me. 🙂

  15. J.C. Martin says:

    Congrats on your upcoming release. The headstones and his reaction to them were well-written!

  16. Lauri J Owen says:

    Very emotional – and then that bang shocked me! Nice six!

  17. Ciara Knight says:

    I know I’m blond but what do I keep doing wrong. This is the second time I’ve come back and my comments not showing. I’m sorry Lindsay. I’ve been leaving comments, not sure what’s going on. I’m sure it’s operator error. Okay, I’m trying again. Congratulations on the release. You’ll have to post on my blog around the release day. 🙂 Let me know.

    Congrats on the release! Love the sentences (quality over quantity heh)
