Now here’s the blurb and an excerpt from Out of Sight.
Sometimes being invisible is a good thing. Or is it? Alone with a captivating colleague, Sandra deals with the reality of her marriage and herself.
“Have a good trip,” Brett said. He proffered his cheek for a good-bye kiss, exactly the way he had every morning for the last twenty-nine years. “Call me when you get there.”
Sandra gave him a peck on that soft place above his now almost-white beard. After all these years, she was the one going on a business trip. Brett’s turn to be left to an empty house.
Her stomach lurched and her heart beat a little faster. Travel nerves, she told herself, but a sense of freedom rose within her on the cab ride to the airport.
Three days away from her friends, her family, anyone who knew her. She forced herself to concentrate on the reason for the trip–to sit down face to face and iron out all those final details that telephone calls and emails wouldn’t permit. Put the first edition of the new journal to bed.
“I need you here, where we can do it in real time,” Jim had said. “Fly out for a couple of days, and we can probably get the whole thing finished. You can stay at my place–it’ll be more convenient than a hotel. Everything’s in my home office.”
