Sorry this is late–here is another excerpt from my WIP, “Knowing Naomi.” Thanks to all for reading!
“Naomi?” Andy Berman, Seth’s lanky, brown-haired best friend, asked. Andy had let his hair grow. It was almost shoulder-length, and he had a goatee. Somehow, the long hair and goatee suited him, especially since he also played the guitar in Seth’s band.
She shrugged. “Yes. It’s me.” She knew she’d lost weight. She didn’t know what her parents would think about her dying her black hair blonde. She wondered what Andy and Seth felt about the girl they’d once made fun of. Well, she wasn’t a chubby sixth grade girl who had a pet turtle anymore. She was a woman with plans. Not only was she here to run the satellite office of the Schwartz Detective Agency, she wanted to do some investigating of her own.
“Naomi,” Seth said, his deep voice like a hot cup of coffee on an ice-cold Maine afternoon. “What are you doing back in Morganville?”
Oh, yeah, Naomi thought. They’d changed the name of the town from Mensocket to Morganville, in honor of the founding of the place. “My parents insisted that I come back for some R and R.”
“Can we drop you off somewhere?” Andy asked, smiling that charming smile of his.
“I was going to take a cab.”
