Hump Day Hook -- Or Not!

Earlier this week, I signed up for the weekly Hump Day Hook blog hop...or at least, I thought I did. I probably did something wrong because I didn't see Time for Love listed as a participant. I'm hoping I might yet be able to join in the fun.

But, if not, I'll quietly post my own little hump day hook. It's the opening paragraph from my newly-released historical romance, Happily Ever After.  Enjoy!


Highly responsible, punctual, of good moral character.” Anne Hopkins glanced again at the letter of recommendation Louisa had written. No matter how many times she read it, the words surprised her. Although she did consider herself a highly responsible young woman, and punctuality could certainly be counted among her virtues, her good moral character had been called into question in recent weeks. Louisa Grisham, had, in fact, fired her for lack of it.


I hope this quick little snippet has whetted your appetite for more.
