Sneak Peek Sunday: 'Sea Panther'

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday. Kimberly is staying at a B&B in Cape May, New Jersey...

E-book available from Amazon,
Amazon UK
  SmashwordsAppleand Barnes&Noble.
Trade paperback available
at Amazon and Barnes&Noble.
While waiting for the hostess, she perused the want ads pinned to a bulletin board next to the counter. One in particular drew her attention and she read the notice a second time…

90-ft. sloop SEA PANTHER seeking fifth crewmember for coastal cruise, leaving Cape May on 11 Dec., docking Charleston, SC for refit, continuing on to Florida and the Caribbean. Experience required. Fair wages. Inquire at Rusty Scupper.

If only she’d the nerve to reply to the ad, she could sail away from all her problems. Taking off would be a major cop-out, but the fantasy of escaping from a messed up life offered a certain appeal. And she did need a job.

“Would you prefer to sit at a booth or the counter?” A college-aged girl with a blond ponytail interrupted Kimberly’s thoughts.

“A booth, please.” Kimberley’s stomach gave off a soft gurgle as she slid into the offered seat. Hoping no one heard, she pressed a hand to her belly and concentrated on the menu.

Nothing appealed. She hadn’t had an appetite in weeks. Not since learning the offshore deal she invested her savings in, along with the money of a few clients, failed. God, her life was such a mess.

  1. Sometimes it's tempting to "run away" or "sail away" from problems. I have a feeling Kimberly might find herself facing a whole lot of new ones :)

    1. Hi, Christina! Out of the pot and into the fire. LOL! Thanks for stopping by. :)
