Six Sentence Sunday

Today's six are from the opening of Summer's Wolf. The second book in the Westervelt series. Please make sure to check out all the 6 Sunday entries here!

Death.


Someone inside her parents’ house was dead.


Summer Morrison shut the front door with a thud and covered her nose and mouth with her hands. She tried not to gag. The stench of rotten flesh permeated through her hands, into her nasal passages and then coursed around her bloodstream. Her heart pounded and her stomach churned as its contents threatened to make an undesired reappearance.

  10. That is a creepy beginning. And as someone who works in a mortuary...there is nothing in this world that smells worse than a bad decomp.
