Snippet Sunday: 99 cent summer romance: Arrow Through The Heart #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my sweet contemporary romance, Arrow Through The Heart. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:



This snippet:      Ella meets Logan's parents.

*****
Logan approached his parents. "Mom, Dad, this is Ella. She's in town for the tennis tournament. Ella, my parents, Julie and Sam Donovan."
Ella offered her hand and his father stood, returning her hand shake. Logan noticed his father favored his right foot.
"You look familiar," Logan's father said.

"I get confused with Maria Sharipova on occasion."


****
BLURB: 
Summer vacation and the Fourth of July brings Ella to New Hampshire while participating in a tennis competition. Logan is an innkeeper's son who bumps into Ella and invites her for an ice cream. Attraction flares and they enjoy spending time together, but each has their own plans for their life. Then disaster strikes Ella. Can a summer attraction truly become a lasting relationship?

  1. Meeting the parents is always uncomfortable. Especially if they now have expectations that have nothing to do with who you really are.

  2. That's a funny introduction. I wonder what this right foot story is all about.

  3. I'm intrigued by the right foot. Summer love... I already feel the atmosphere in this snippet. :-)

  4. Introducing her to the parents already?

    Add me to the list of what his father did to his foot/leg/ankle... and how it might play into the story.

  5. I'm curious about why Logan's suddenly noting the gimp foot at a moment like this. Wouldn't his attention be on the expressions?

    I do like Ella's casual brush-off of "You look familiar" though

  6. Interesting little moment, several things going on at once apparently, with the Dad's hurt foot etc. Enjoyed the snippet!

  7. I'm with Eden, wouldn't he be more focused on the expressions and reactions of his parents? Not that little tidbit, it seems out of place to me. Unless it's hinting to something?
