Blurb Blitz ~ A Trace of Romance by Ann Swann ~ #Romance @GoddessFish

Ann Swann

GENRE: Romance


Laynie & Trace. The first day of her new second-grade school year in tiny Beach Way, Oregon, Laynie and Trace became fast friends. Through the years, their friendship deepened into young love. They did everything together. Then tragedy took the life of his beloved sister, and because of the circumstances of her death, Trace felt compelled to move as far from Beach Way as possible. Laynie was left behind, heartbroken, and alone. But she was no quitter. She picked herself up and, with her family’s help, made a wonderful new life for herself. She heard he’d done the same down in Texas. But now he was back, standing in the doorway of her precious flower shop, taking up all the space the same way he’d always done. Her Trace, larger than life. What was he doing here, after all this time?

Excerpt Three:

Laynie pushed the memories aside. That story was just a thread in the fabric of her past. A big stout thread, true, and painful. Convoluted. Tangled. Too much to be added to this momentary lapse of reality. It was one episode in her life that she’d never been able to reconcile, probably never would.

A quick shadow crossed the glass window behind her, leading her to think someone was about to open the shop door and come in.

She swiped at her face, to make certain no moisture lingered there, but there was no tinkle of the little bell. No swoosh of cold air from outside, no suction of shop-heated air rushing toward an open door, setting the bubble hearts dancing.

Laynie turned slowly, a feathery feeling tickling the back of her neck again. She would have sworn someone was there.
Meet the Author:

Ann has been a writer since junior high school, but to pay the bills she’s waited tables, delivered newspapers, cleaned other people's houses, taught school, and even had a short stint as a secretary in a rock-n-roll radio station. She also worked as a 911 operator and a police dispatcher.

Ann’s stories began to win awards in her college days. Since then she’s published novels, novellas, and short stories. But even if no one ever bought another book, Ann wouldn’t stop writing. For her, it’s the cathartic pause in a sometimes-crazy world. Most of the time, it even keeps her sane.
