Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

To add a little bit more interest… I plan on adding a few memes here and there.

Annabel sat in the kitchen shelling peas in to a kettle at her feet. A bead of sweat tickled her harline while only the barest puff of warm air came through the open door.

The Merchant’s Daughter by Melanie Dickerson releases Nov 29th, 2011.
