Boomer Lit Friday – July 12

Today's Boomer Lit Friday excerpt is from PARALLEL LIVES, the follow up to THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX. In this book, Leah Gold is given an opportunity to explore what might have happened in her life if she had made different decisions earlier in her life.

Today, we join Leah as she tries to recover from a startling—and possibly unreal— experience. She had been relaxing on the couch, looking at photos of her granddaughter on her cell phone. Closing her eyes to imagine being with Zoey, she hears and smells the all seemed so real. When she opened her eyes, she was holding her granddaughter.
Leah’s eyes opened so wide she thought they’d pop out. Where was she? Instinctively, she put her hands around Zoey and sat up straight. She looked around in awe. She was in Zoey’s room. Was she dreaming? 
Ali poked her head into the room. “Mom, what are you doing? You’d better get her fed and dressed if you want to get to the class on time.” She was gone so quickly, Leah wasn’t sure if she imagined the reprimand. Zoey started to whimper, and was building up to a wail.

Leah heard Ali’s voice down the hall. “Mom, her bottle is on the kitchen counter. What’s with you this morning?” 
PARALLEL LIVES is still a Work in Progress (WIP). If you haven't read THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX yet and want to know more about the life Leah just left, you can purchase the first book in the series as an ebook or paperback at

  1. I must say, this has me very curious. Great excerpt!

  2. Great idea for a story line. This scene really shows her confusion, and I'm wondering what's going to happen next.
    Here's my Boomer Lit Friday post:

  3. Intriguing! It certainly shows her confusion...I've read with pleasure your first book, can't wait to read this one!

  4. I can sense her confusion and want to read on to see what's going on and why she is there. Nice concept.
