More from Hedge House, a paranormal/urban fantasy, almost finished first draft that I’m hoping to release before the end of the year. This snippet picks up from last week’s.
“What happened after the two of you left for Tulsa?”
Cara shook her head. “We still weren’t close. She’d never gotten to know me, had no idea what I liked, tried to force me into the mold of her ideal daughter. We’re still not close. She’s still part of that church and I’m… not.”
Cara busied herself threading the chain through the wire loop on the pendant. Why was she telling Tamira all of this? She had just met her and wasn’t entirely sure the woman liked her or approved of her. Not that she needed anyone’s approval… Craved it, maybe, but didn’t need it.
“Thank you,” she said. “For the chain.” She fastened it around her neck and turned as the door chimed, stiffening as she saw who was in the doorway.
When Cara Hawthorne returns to the childhood home she had been torn away from twenty years earlier, she thinks it will be to do nothing more than settle her grandmother’s estate and return to her job as a junior lawyer at a prestigious law firm in Tulsa.
But every nook and cranny of the house and gardens unearths long-buried memories, and when the town’s mayor sets his sights on her and the property she finds herself caught up in a centuries old battle with powers she has only barely begun to understand

Interesting perspective on her mother.
Great snippet. Well, of course, I want to know who is standing at the door.
“Not that she needed anyone’s approval… Craved it, maybe, but didn’t need it.” Those words hit home to me. They say a lot about character!
And now come on, you can’t just leave us hanging on who walked in.
I’ll unhang you this Sunday.
But that’s still five days away! LOL.
oh, who’s at the door. Liked the little insight of her thoughts.
Really enjoying this story and all the various plot threads woven in…and of course I can’t wait to find out who is in the doorway! Great snippet…
