Six Sentence Sunday, May 8




From the WIP that I'm shopping around, By Hook or By Crook. Joe gets an unexpected call from his sister, who needs his help. She's on bed rest due to a troubled pregnancy and she and her husband ask for his help running their ranch. He and Ivy talk it over:

"Do you know anything about ranching?"

Joe shot her a you've-got-to-be-kidding look. "No, but how hard can it be?"
"Do you know anything about taking care of a pregnant woman?"
"Let's put it this way. I'm an expert on ranching, compared to what I know about pregnant women."
