Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser TuesdayWelcome to Teaser Tuesday, the blog series where I share snippets from upcoming and past releases, and works-in-progress and occasionally invite writing buddies to join in the fun.

It’s Christmas holiday time, which means this will be the last Teaser Tuesday of the year but never fear, we’ll be back again in 2017 with more booky goodness for you to savour.

Well, WAYWARD HEART has been on the shelves for a week now. Thanks to everyone who has snapped up a copy and a huge thank you for all your gorgeous feedback. I’m so thrilled you’ve enjoyed Digby and Jasmine’s story!

Being Christmas, I was tempted to share another snippet of SANTA AND THE SADDLER but I decided to stick with WAYWARD HEART because that’s the book on shelves everywhere and I’d love you all to find a copy under the tree or in your stocking this Christmas.

I think I’ve mentioned before that one of my all-time favourite characters is Granny B, who we first met in ROCKING HORSE HILL and has also appeared in SUMMER AND THE GROOMSMAN. She so adores a good meddle and she’s in fine form in WAYWARD HEART.

I’ve been contemplating a short story or novella about Granny B for quite a while now but I had no useable plot ideas. But this morning, when I was lying in bed, one came to me and now all I want to do is write it. It’ll have to wait though. I have Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy to finish first and a Christmas break to enjoy. So, I’ll so what I always do with these things and jot the idea down and file it away until the time’s right.

In the meantime, we can still savour the delight that is Granny B in WAYWARD HEART. Here’s a little taste of her in action.

 

Dinner in Camrick’s kitchen proved, as Josh had warned, a torment of sly looks and Wayward Heart by Cathryn Heinsneaky questions. The entire household appeared to know he hadn’t slept in his own bed since Saturday night. Digby tried to concentrate on his meal—fried zucchini flowers followed by baked whole rainbow trout from a local fish farm—and hoped his refusal to play along would be indication enough that he had no intention of satisfying their curiosity. For the most part, it worked on his sister and mother. His grandmother, however, was made of sterner stuff.

Granny B dabbed carefully at the edges of her mouth and laid down her napkin. ‘I trust you and Jasmine have been comparing notes, Digby.’

The mention of Jasmine’s name lifted the hairs on the back of Digby’s neck. He blinked and quickly took a mouthful of wine. Jas had cautioned that his grandmother suspected something. He hadn’t expected her to come right out with it.

 

Wayward Heart is available right now from these excellent stores:

    Ooh, mine is somewhere in the house, Steven has hidden it, he’s a very naughty boy. Lol. But I’ve decided I’ll read it in the new year so it can be one of my outstanding reads for 2017! Love the teaser it does sound like it will be a top read. Hurry up January!

      Ooh, Steven is a meanie!! Hopefully the anticipation will pay off, Sue. And LOL on it being a top read for 2017. Gaaaaaawd, I hope so. No pressure!!

      1. Sue Gerhardt Griffiths

        Haha, yep Cathryn, no pressure! Hehe. And it will be the first book of the year I’ll be reading. I have no doubt that it will land in my 10 most outstanding books of 2017. You’ll know by December next year. I know you will be waiting with bated breath until then. Lol!
        April’s Rainbow is number three of the ten books I chose for the most outstanding books of 2016. I hope that gives you a little smile!

        Steven and I wish you and Jim a wonderful and Merry Christmas! Xoxo

    Yah, after going to 5 stores during the week,finally got it today ,I am assuming the other stores had just sold out,hope that’s what it was anyway.! Xx😀😀

      RAH!!! So glad you scored a copy, Carol. That’s wonderful.
      And yes, I ALWAYS tell myself that the books have sold out whenever I can’t find them in store. Tis a fabulous coping mechanism. I suspect though, that there are boxes still to be opened and shelved which is understandable at this ridiculously busy time of the year.
      Wishing you a wonderful time with Digby and Jas and the gang.
