Snowdrop Dreams, Cherry Thumbprint Screams by @KimberlyBaer14 is a Love and Romance pick #romance



Title: Snowdrop Dreams, Cherry Thumbprint Screams


Author: Kimberly Baer


Genre: Romantic Suspense Novella


Book Blurb:


When Annie Barkley discovers a boy living in the attic of her cookie shop, she’s stunned—and oddly elated. She can almost believe the universe is giving back the infant son she lost eleven years ago.


Annie senses that something bad happened to the boy, but he won’t talk. All she knows is that he’s terrified of being found. When her long-ago crush, police captain Sam Stern, stops by to inquire about a missing boy, Annie says she hasn’t seen him.


Big mistake. Because that lie might cost her more than a romance with Sam. It also leaves her vulnerable to a ruthless pursuer, one who’s determined to silence the boy for good.

Excerpt:


She was startled by a thump from above, followed by the muffled slide of the attic window, first up, then down. The groan of floorboards beneath traipsing feet.


Goosebumps prickled across her scalp. Why hadn’t she thought to grab something to use for self-defense? A knife or a fork or Gram’s old cast-iron baking pan, which maybe, just maybe, would deflect bullets. There might be a metal nail file in her purse, except she had no time to hunt for it, because the trap door was creaking open, and—oh, God!—someone was coming down the stairs.


Footfalls thudded across the floor, mere feet from where she was hunkered behind the island. Squinting through the grainy dimness, she peeked around the corner in time to glimpse a slight, dark figure creeping into the room out front. She got to her feet and followed.


She came to a halt just beyond the doorway. The big neon clock on the rear wall glowed blue, giving the room a bar-like ambience. The cookie burglar was standing behind the counter to her left, cramming snowdrop cookies into his mouth.


God in heaven, it was a boy. The cookie burglar was a boy. And he was eleven. She was sure of that, even though the light was dim and she was seeing him only in profile. Something about him seemed familiar—his slouched shoulders, perhaps, or the long, straight slope of his nose. He was slender like her, though a few inches shorter. His hair was matted and dark but with a good shampooing would probably be the same tawny shade as her own.


An eleven-year-old brown-haired boy, come down from above to burgle her cookie shop…


She stepped forward with a gasp. “Jonah?”

Where to start? This book sounds so good! And I love how in your bio you talk about walking only when conditions are perfect. I think you and I may be related! Give me exercise...as long as it's relatively pain-free! Then when I saw you liked The Office and Breaking Bad, well, I feel like we could talk for hours! Your trailer was awesome! I was wondering who did it for you? I really like the premise of this book and I wish you and SNOWDROP DREAMS, CHERRY THUMBPRINT SCREAMS all the best!
