I was MIA last week. Life got in the way. We’re continuing in The Summer of Second Chances and Ben and Sophie’s first kiss. Where will it lead?
His eyes were dark blue and questioning, and he looked exactly how she felt, a little bewildered and wary. But he didn’t move back or take his hands off her—they were both breathless.
Sophie closed her eyes, tipping her head back for second, trying hard to get her brain back in gear. Then she met his eyes again; not a single word had passed between them yet. He watched her, his expression full of wonder and so much tenderness that she wanted to crawl inside his heart and stay there forever.
“Sophie?” A voice came from beyond the utility room, “Hey, Soph, you in there?” Noah Dixon pounded on the screen door, tugging against the hook.
Yeah, they got interrupted. It was inevitable, right? 😉
Here’s a shot of the white caps on Lake Michigan, taken from the top of Sophie’s beach steps. I hope you continue to be intrigued by Sophie and Ben.

Oh writer’s are such an evil lot! You interrupted them? In the middle of breathless wonder!!! Oh Man!
Yeah…I’m one of those evil ones. 😉 Very glad you stopped by, Millie!
Missed you last week. Lovely eight with just the right wonder of it all moment we mature folks know and love.

Well of course the author has to interrupt it.
Hey Sue Ann! You’re right, what would be the fun otherwise? Thanks for coming by, babe!
Ah, man, worst timing. Great snippet, Nan. 🙂
Happy you came by, Siobhan. Thank you!
What a time to get interrupted, darn! Enjoyed the excerpt, I really love your characters and want to read more.
Thank you, Veronica! Glad you stopped by!
Beautiful moment and you have put me right there with them. I want to smack whoever is about to interrupt them;). Well done.
Thanks, Tina. Trust me, Sophie wants to smack him too! 😉
great imagery in this snippet … and yes the interruption was inevitable. Very nicely done.
Thank, Susan! Glad you came by!
aww. Your descriptions are great, Nan. You put us right there with Sophie without dragging us down by having her overthink the moment. Succinct, but makes us want more. Cool beans!
Thanks, Marcia…appreciate you stopping by and commenting!
love the image of her crawling inside his heart
Thank you, EE! So glad you came by!
