Cami Checkett’s new Novel Blog This!
I’m afraid I double booked today. If you are looking for my October IWSG post, you can find it HERE.
Will protecting children throughout the world cost Natasha her own family?
Devastated by the loss of her brother, Natasha Senecot works to expose the dangers of Matthew Chrysler’s violent video games, succeeding in bankrupting and humiliating him.
Chrysler retaliates and sends a hit man after her. Natasha is forced to fake her own death to protect her children, but after witnessing another tragedy, Natasha won’t hide any longer.
In a race against time, can Natasha expose Matthew Chrysler before his assassin murders her family and shatters her world?
His gaze locked on hers. His eyes were so cold. A chill wind swept over her, but the branches on the trees didn’t move.
“Can I help you?” She clutched her gloved fingers to stop the trembling.
His eyes darkened. His lips stayed in a tight line.
“Did you, um, get lost?” Natasha forced an unsteady laugh and arched her eyebrows. “Easy to do in a town of less than three thousand people.” He didn’t crack a smile so she released her own, pointed toward the front yard, and stiffly recited driving directions. “Highway 89 is less than a mile east of here. The fastest route is to drive straight out of the neighborhood and then take two-hundred s-s…”
His right arm rose—a black pistol molded to his palm. Heart thudding, Natasha’s voice sputtered and died. She raised her hands and backed up a few steps. Her gaze darted to Jace and Lily.
“Mom!” Jace pulled Lily against his side.
Natasha felt colder than the snow clinging to her boots. The only lucid thought she had was the overwhelming need to protect Jace and Lily. I have to say something, do something. “Please, please don’t hurt us.”
The lines in his face hardened, anger seeping from his dark gaze. The hand holding the gun remained steady.
Natasha’s mind raced, trying to comprehend a man pointing a gun at her with Jace and Lily feet away. Was there any way to keep them safe?
“Look,” she began, her voice trembling on each word, “I-I’ve got some cash in the house. I can give you my credit card and the pin numbers for my debit card. The credit card has a hundred-thousand dollar limit.” It was a lie, but might buy her children’s safety.
He shook his head. “I’m not after your money.” His voice was barely above a rough whisper.
Then why are you here? She cast a nervous glance at her children. Jace clung to Lily, watching his mother bargain for their lives. What else could she do to protect them? Why was this guy pointing a gun at her?
Suddenly, the latest e-mail threats played through her mind.
Stop your blog or I will send someone to stop it.
Is any cause worth dying for?
The corner of the man’s lip quivered. His voice dropped. “I am sorry.”
Blinking to clear her vision, Natasha wondered if she’d heard him correctly. “Sorry?”
No. She shook her head. Oh, no. Realization came like a moldy dishrag snapped in her face. He was here to fulfill the threats. His apology. That brief flicker of regret in his eyes. This man had been sent by Matthew Chrysler to kill her.
“I’ll stop the blog.”
He shook his head once. “It’s too late.”
