Don't wait. Get Hooked!

Today I'm featuring my main character, Elly Macauley, in this excerpt from BLUEBONNETS FOR ELLY. Elly has moved from Dallas to a senior-citizen neighborhood to help her grandmother recover from an injured ankle. 

     What a life. Not what she’d expected to be doing at age twenty-five. Instead of a high-rise Dallas apartment, she lived in a cramped mobile home in small-town Shannon Ridge, Texas. Instead of working as an interior designer, she spent her days doling out her grandmother’s medications. Instead of driving a decent car, she had to rely on a tricked-out geriatric golf cart for transportation.
If Granny hadn’t tumbled off that curb—if Rick hadn’t turned out to be such a shit—if she’d been born an heiress to a great fortune. Sometimes ifs seemed to rule her life, but the immediate problems were not just ifs but what ifs. What if she got caught living in a retirement village where she wasn’t supposed to be? What would Granny do without her? And when the time did come for her to move out, what if she couldn’t find a job?
She sighed. Right now, this was her life and there wasn’t an alternative.
