When You Let Go: A Snippet

When You Let Go cover3

Hey y’all remember the name of my  WIP was Amarachi~ The Grace of God.

Editor Feedback: Amarachi was a complex name. The Grace of God was too generic. So a title change was suggested.

Amara’s story is one where she had to let go of pain to be open to forgive and receive. So the new title is…When You Let Go

Enjoy another snippet. I’m almost there, I’ll announce a release date soon

Pulling a chair, Ejike sat with an exaggerated grin on his face. “I’m sure you guys wouldn’t mind if I joined your party.”

How did he find her? Amara opened her mouth to speak, when Ejike continued while glaring at Devon.

“You must have the magic touch to get my wife to laugh like that,” he said. “She did tell you she is married, right?”

Devon had a confused look on his face. His eyes traveled from her to Ejike. “I’d hate for you to go to hell because you drank from another man’s well,” Ejike said.

Amara’s jaw dropped. How dare he act like she was doing something wrong? If she didn’t do something he would end up costing her this client. “Devon Roberson, meet my husband Ejike Dike,” she said.

Devon extended his hand. “Nice to meet you,” he said.

Ejike ignored his hand. “I wish I could say it was a pleasure.”

That’s it she had had enough. Amara stood up. “Excuse us,” she said to Devon. “I’ll be back shortly.”

Ejike stood. “Don’t bother, I’ll see myself out.” He turned around and left without a backward glance.
