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

Welcome Back Everyone! 

Today is Snippet #3! I'm so excited to have you read it!

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

Last time we left off with Valentina knowing she didn't want to live her life in agony going through chemo. She decided with the time she had left she was going to travel and see as much of the world she can.

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

She wanted to see the world and enjoy life as long as she could.
Her high hopes were dashed, when she caught a cold only a few weeks into her life as a vagabond. 

When that cold hit it started to spiral out of control. 

That was until she ended up in the ER of Hope Memorial and from what she saw of this little town it was most likely the only hospital they had. 

She met the most amazing man who just so happened to be an oncologist. Dr. Xander Carlisle convinced her there was hope and he'd be there every step of the way.
She underwent chemo treatments and radiation. Almost a year later, she'd been given the news that she was cancer free.


Now that Valentina is cancer free what will she do? Why did Dr. Xander Carlisle take such an interest in her?

Find out next week on Sunday October 4th for snippet #4 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'm almost sorry that he talked her into chemo so easily---but at least now she can decide how she wants to live the rest of her life!

  2. "She met the most amazing man who just so happened to be an oncologist."
    Suggestion: reverse the sequence here. For me at least, it would have more credibility.
    "She was treated by an oncologist who just so happened to be the most amazing man."

  10. I wonder if the doctor is really human. Nice excerpt.

  11. Ah ha, an oncologist with a secret... sounds intriguing.

  12. I'm so enjoying reading these snippets. Love the name Xander, too.

  13. Problem is, "cancer free" today doesn't mean cancer free tomorrow. (Currently hospitalized with a recurrence myself.)
