Battle Scars

Another Sunday. Another excerpt. I'm so proud to be part of the online group of mystery and romantic suspense authors who celebrate Sundays with suspenseful seven sentence excerpts from our published books, or a current works-in-progress. Seven. Short. Sweet. Suspenseful. Sentences. No more. No less!

The following excerpt is from FRANK, INCENSE AND MURIEL, the first book of my Muriel Reeves Mysteries series.
