Snippet Sunday: Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday #8Sunday

Welcome back to Snippet Sunday!!!

 Today I'll be sharing a continued snippet from my newly published story Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos.

 ***Note: The snippet has been modified to fit the 8 sentence limit.***

 She was a doctor and she knew the diagnosis was not good.

It was true. Doctors made the worse patients and she was no different. 

Her mother had died of breast cancer. Valentina had no intentions of going through the treatment she did. 

Her mother had suffered for along time, and Valentina knew she'd done it all for her. 

Her mother had tried to live, but in the end, death took her anyway. 

Hospital bed,chemo and death didn't appeal to her. 


What lies ahead for Valentina?

 Find out next week on Sunday the 21st for snippet #3 of my paranormal romance Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos.

The Day of the Dead takes on a new meaning, when the dead don't stay dead. Dr. Valentina Bellmonte, a cancer survivor, is the new coroner at Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could vampires be real?
Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but he's unwilling to confide in her. He has a secret of his own and it's not just how he feels about her, but something else entirely, something he's forbidden to reveal.

  1. I can see why! Congrats on your new release.

  2. they don't appeal to anyone! sounds like she's ready to fight back!

  3. I can definitely agree. Enjoyed the snippet and having the chance to read the story again. :)

  4. Somber words that are filled with determination. Great 8!

  5. Congrats on the new release! And welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors. :-)

    Good snippet. All hard and horrible truths about losing someone to cancer. Nicely done! :-)

  6. She seems to be a very strong person, who knows herself well. Intriguing 8!

  7. I've had breast cancer both side now--and ovarian which seems to be coming back.

  8. I agree with Veronica---she seems strong and self-aware. And from the premise, she's going to need to be! :)

  9. I wonder if, as a doctor, she can think about an alternative cure.

  10. Thank you everyone for the comments! Can't wait for you to read more!
