Here’s another excerpt from Cookies for Santa, scheduled to be released by Melange Books on November 5th. In this scene, Spinelli is dressed as Santa Claus and is attempting to free Shannon from her kidnappers but things don’t go as planned.
When the bullet struck him, Spinelli felt an odd sensation pass by his abdomen. The impact caused him to shift slightly to the left. He looked down at the right side of his body and noticed a black rimmed hole in the red velvet coat he wore. Confusion filled him. He couldn’t feel pain yet he knew he’d been hit.
Shannon let out a cry and Spinelli’s eyes instantly shifted upwards.
