Six Sentence Sunday 3/27



Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday. 
This Sunday not only wraps up the month of March, but this scene from Not Without Risk.



“Right, distracted.” She curled her bottom lip between her teeth and bit down.

A jagged awareness shot into his gut. “Ms. Conroy—”

“There is no way that whether or not I slept with Lee is of any use to your investigation. I did not kill him.”





I appreciate each and every comment and bit of feedback.  Thanks for stopping by every week!
And don't forget to check out all the other SSS posts.

Great suspense! So glad I bought this and can read whenever I want! :-)

Love the awareness between them in the face of the murder investigation.

(And oh, mama, that glistening six pack was not bad, either.)

Dee Carney said...

Nicely done!

Liz said...

So much underlying tension with so few words!

Ah but did she?

Love the tension here. I want more!

Sarah Grimm said...

@Viviane Brentanos LOL Was wondering if someone would point out Paige still hasn't answered his question.

Vivien Jackson said...

Little cagey, is she? That's okay, though: it helps build the tension. Besides, he can lick her lip better if she bites down too hard.

Laurie A. Green said...

Love what's communicated through her body language--maybe moreso than her words. Great six. Great pic, too. :)

Hope you'll post more.

Marie Dees said...

nice six! Nice tension.

Eleri Stone said...

Great six! More next week?

JoAnne Kenrick said...

Nice six, I'm intrigued to find out why she's been questioned for a murder, did she love the victim or just sleep with him, did she even sleep with him? Is the police dude the hero, or is he a pig? Yeah, questions are rolling around in my head and I want answers.... talk about hooked!

Rebecca Royce said...

How can you leave us like that?

Lindsay said...

Great six. Great tension. So, did she or will she sleep with the detective

Sarah Grimm said...

@JoAnne Kenrick The detective is the hero. That's all I'll say. *evil laugh*

If you want to see a bit more, the last few Sundays are part of this scene.

Talk about distracted. That photo is really something.

Hailey Edwards said...

Oh, nice. Definitely wondering what happened there.

Lynne Murray said...

Oh, so it's Ms. Conroy, but he's getting distracted...most intriguing tension flowing under the dialog--great six!

Marsha A. Moore said...

She's withholding information. Wonder why? Very suspenseful snippet!

Joanne Stewart said...

Great six, Sarah. All it does is make me want MORE. :D

A.R. Norris said...

Lot's the layers to this snippet here. Very intriguing.

Lauri J Owen said...

Juicy snip!

Arlene said...

Nothing like being accused of sex and murder at the same time. Love it.

Claire Robyns said...

you had me wondering so many things with rhis 6... did she? sleep with Lee? know something about his murder that she's not telling? is she just distracted? anxious? lol, great job

Lisa Kumar said...

Great six! I could feel the tension, and when you combine murder and sex, well... People love that!

Kathleen Grieve said...

This Six does exactly what it's supposed to! I feel thoroughly teased and left wanting! LOL.

Jessica K said...

This gets more fun as it goes on. She has a good point: why does he have to know if she slept with the dead man...

Laura Kaye said...

Hmm...interesting! Love the tension!

laynap said...
