Thursday teaser: The Girl in the Window

Share

By Renée Pawlish

It was the same thing, five days a week.

Caleb McCormick backed out of his driveway in his Mercedes S-class sedan. The car was black and sleek, and it shimmered in the morning light. The engine rumbled and growled, but it was a comforting sound to me, like the purr of a cat – a big cat. It was the perfect car for the perfect man, the man I looked for each morning.

The Mercedes reached the street,turned, and drove slowly past my house. I slid to the side of the window. I didn’t want him to see me watching. Not again. But I peeked out anyway.

Caleb McCormick. Thirty-three years old, a financial advisor. His dark hair neatly trimmed, one lost dark curl falling down his forehead in a sexy way. I imagined his blue eyes sparkling as he quickly donned a pair of Oakley sunglasses to ward off the early morning April sun.

Gawd, he’s gorgeous.

The Mercedes neared the corner, slowed down and disappeared. I let out a lungful of air I hadn’t realized I was holding in. The last time he’d driven by – yesterday morning a little after seven – he’d glanced my way. He’d seen me watching – not for the first time –and waved, a half-smile on his baby face. I’d lifted a hand in return and smiled back. It was our morning connection, a treasured moment. At least for me.

What did he think when he saw me, each weekday morning at the same time, standing in the window in my pink silk robe, staring out at him? It must not have bothered him – after all, he always drove by and acknowledged me in a seemingly pleasant way.

With a sigh, I moved back in front of the window and gazed down the street, where the Mercedes had just been. Then I glanced in the other direction, toward his house, and frowned. After what had happened with his wife yesterday, I needed to be careful.

Shark-Sea-graphic3

The Only Shark in the Sea, the third book in DelSheree Gladden’s Date Shark series, comes out at the end of July. In anticipation, the author will give an ebook advance review copy (ARC). You can also download Date Shark book 1 for free. The oher link below is to my website page for the series.

What is The Only Shark in the Sea about?

Vance Sullivan has always been the rock his friends turn to when they need help. His work with patients who have experienced traumatic events was a natural extension of his role in their tight knit group, but when the tables are turned and Vance is suddenly the one in need of serious emotional and mental support, asking for it is the last thing he wants. Betrayal, lies, and guilt spill out in the face of tragedy and the only person he’s willing to accept help from seems the least capable of giving it.

Terrified of everyone, running from her past, physically unable to touch another human being without inducing a panic attack, Natalie has no idea why anyone thinks she can help Vance. She went to him for help, after all. Even though she’s sure she’ll fail, she can’t help but try. She can’t repay everything he’s done for her by walking away when he needs her most. Helping Vance battle his guilt and grief in order to move forward seems like a noble quest, but when her own dangerous past gets tangled up with Vance, neither one may be able to survive.
