Example text

Kate is a statuesque woman: a tall Jane Russell type, with an enviably curvaceous figure. She has a mass of copper curls framing her face, which is freckled, open, and friendly, with a wide smile and hazel eyes. The smile was not in evidence at the moment, and the eyes were a flat, muddy brown. “What’s the matter? ” I asked, a little diffidently, since I would prefer not to have my head bitten off. “Wayne,” Kate snarled. Derek grinned. “Cold feet? ” he inquired, pulling a third chair around and straddling it.

I wasn’t entirely sure what disappointed me more, the fact that my mom wouldn’t be able to spend as much time with Derek as I’d hoped, or the fact that he was going to be renovating a house without me. “I’d love to have your help, Tinkerbell,” Derek said. “But I don’t want to take you away from your mom. You haven’t seen her for more than a year. And there’ll be plenty of time for you to help me before she gets here. ” Kate asked. I looked at Derek. He nodded. “I believe we will,” I said. 2 I’d never actually been inside Kate’s carriage house before.

And Kate seemed to have troubles of her own. I felt like I could see her turning thinner and paler in front of my eyes, but she kept telling me that everything was fine and that nothing was wrong, and there wasn’t anything I could do but accept it. For a while I wondered if maybe she and Wayne were getting cold feet as the wedding drew nearer. He was gone a lot, too, and I hardly ever saw the two of them together anymore. But then I realized that he was just pushing himself day and night to try to figure out who might have killed Carolyn Tate.
