Sunday Snippets ~ On The Edge By Jamie Hill

On The Edge was originally written and released as a five part serial for another publisher. It was fun at the time, but once I got the rights back I decided it'd be easier to market the book as a novella rather than a serial. Personally, I'm not impressed by the number of teasers at the online bookstores these days. Before I buy I book I make sure it's the whole thing, and not just a segment of a story. There are enough good, inexpensive books our there now, I don't want or need to get roped in to a serial where the first part is free or cheap and the rest are not so cheap! 

Rant over, On The Edge is a romantic suspense novella and is available for the low, low price of $1.99 at most all online booksellers. Below is the link to the Books We Love store where it can be purchased using Paypal in PDF, mobi/Kindle and epub/Nook/many other readers. 

Hope you enjoy!

“I think my house is haunted. Either that, or I'm losing my mind.” The petite woman spoke matter-of-factly, a serious expression on her face. 

Jake Gilford looked her over carefully, gauging his first impression. She was pretty, her caramel-colored skin slightly darker than his summer tan. Black-as-coal hair, in springy ringlets, touched her shoulders. Her eyes were a shade lighter, chocolate-colored, and definitely piercing as they gazed at him directly. She was a small woman, but shapely. He couldn't help but notice her nicely rounded breasts straining against her thin t-shirt, and the way her hips filled out a tight pair of faded jeans. Which doesn't mean she's not a freaking nutcase. He smiled politely. “Miss Wheeler?” 

“Of course I'm Jocelyn Wheeler,” she snapped, stepping back so he could come inside. “I phoned Chief Taylor about my situation. He assured me he'd send his best detective. I assume that'd be you, Detective…?” She shot him a look, which indicated her skepticism. 

He forced another smile, and brushed past her, entering the old house. “Gilford. Jake Gilford. The Chief told me this was a special case. Something about he and your father being old friends—” 

“They were. My father died a few months ago, and I'm here to settle his estate—the largest part of which is this house.” 

He took in as much as he could of the huge, ornately furnished house. If she stood to inherit everything, she'd become a rich woman. He glanced at her—she fidgeted as she looked around, warily. A rich, nutty woman. “I'm sorry for your loss.” 

She shrugged, crossed her arms and rubbed them, as if warding off a chill. “We weren't close.”
