My new novel, HUNT FOR REDEMPTION, takes former NFL wide receiver Tim Hunt from the Isle of Palms on the coast of South Carolina to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Along for the ride is his high school sweetheart, Abby Jones, who needs his help to save someone she cares about. She makes him care, too. Tim is an optimist. What could go wrong? He knows all about risk. He managed to catch a Hail Mary pass in the end zone to win for his college team in a bowl game. Now that was scary! He has no idea he will have to fight for not only his life but Abby’s life, also.
SCENE FROM ISLE OF PALMS:
Tim turned off Highway 17 onto the IOP Connector. The bridge section of the road spanned over the vast salt marsh and the Intracoastal Waterway, connecting Mt. Pleasant to the Isle of Palms. He never tired of the view from the highest point on the bridge. As far as the eye could see the verdant cordgrass gave the appearance of a plush green lawn on solid ground. However, he knew if he were able to look straight down he could see that it sprouted up from grayish mud along winding canals of salt water carved out by rising tide.
SCENE FROM BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS:
“A little bit of heaven right here in the mountains.” Admiring the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, he deemed this to be true. Near dusk, the clouds veiled the sky in hues of gold and pink. Once he stepped out of the car, he became aware of a peaceful stillness, the trees covering the peaks hid any movement taking place beneath their canopy. To Lance, the gentle breeze felt like the fluttering of angels’ wings against his skin. Yes, like heaven.
