Six Sentence Sunday 9/11

To all of those affected by the 9/11 tragedy 10 years ago, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

~*~

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday. Thanks so much for stopping by! This week's snippet is from my romantic suspense, Not Without Risk.


“So you say.”

“You don’t believe me.” She was surprised by how much that hurt. “You still suspect me of killing Leroy, don’t you?”

“I believe in the evidence, Ms. Conroy, and until I have evidence that proves otherwise, you will remain a person of interest.”

“You actually think I would blow up my own car to divert attention from myself?”

Great dialogue. Love the tension and disbelief seeping through their conversation.

Awesome six! Then again, that might depend on the type of car it was. I owned one that would have been improved by blowing up.

He doesn't trust her. That's always hard. Hope she can prove herself innocent before he makes a big mistake with her.

I don't care how determined you are to throw off suspicion, blowing up your own car is off the grid. He needs to give her the benefit of the doubt! *smile*
