The Mason Dixon Line, Snippet Sunday, New Adult Romance


Happy Sunday! Today I’m excerpting my newest release, The Mason Dixon Line, now available at Amazon. My heroine has struggled with compulsive spending and has gone through a couple of rounds of throwing away her credit cards, only to fall back off of the wagon later. This is one such moment, when she’s upset over a job loss and shopping as a result. Here, she’s searching for the credit card she’d sworn she’d only use in an emergency:

As she rummaged through her drawer, she heard a rustling and unearthed a sheet of white paper. Wondering, she pulled it out.
It was the sketch Mason had made of her at the cabin. She’d shoved it in a drawer as soon as she’d gotten home, unwilling to throw it away, but unable to look at it either.
She looked so sad in the picture. Sad, or lost. Mason’s pencil had discovered something about her she hadn’t even known about herself. Swallowing, she shoved the paper back in the drawer and dug until she found the credit card.

The Mason Dixon Line is available for the Kindle here. (More platforms coming in 90 days.) For more great Snippet Sunday excerpts, go here. And to keep informed on future releases, feel free to Like my author page on Facebook.

    Such a sad snippet, I wonder whether she’ll ever manage to face that sketch again.


  2. It’s so sad, she needs a good cry more than a credit card.


  3. It is sad, but I love the description of her finding the sketch. I wrote a scene in my first ever book, “Tempting Jonah,” where the heroine isn’t good at drawing people…except the hero.

    Sad she couldn’t see the suggestion for change in the drawing. Good snippet, Linda. 🙂


  5. P.T. Wyant says:

    Very real emotions in this.


  6. Sarah W says:

    It’s so hard to break a long-time coping mechanism—I feel bad for her, but I appreciate the realism! 🙂


  7. VERY realistic and I’m with Siobhan, too bad the heroine couldn’t see the need for change…but then the story would be different. Can’t wait to see what happens next, great snippet.

    Seems like she will be doing some serious shopping now. Good Snippet!

    Oh I like the realism in this. Always nice to see a character complete with flaws. That was a great scene.

  10. Very nice, tight scene. Hope she discovers the card is expired! 🙂
