Today Susan Shaw is stopping by today to tell us about what would be in her garage sale of items from her teenage years.
A garage sale from my teenage years—I think some of those things are in my attic and scattered around the house. First and foremost would be my flute. Then maybe a music stand with some music on it. A recipe for my Aunt Hattie’s molasses cookies—the best in the world! A baseball bat, a hockey stick, a bed with a carved headboard, the pup tent I shared with my sister who knocked it over every night trying to find the exit on a family camping trip, the front porch swing, a collection of Agatha Christie mysteries, and the green gown I wore to my future husband’s senior prom.
Mmm...Molasses cookies sound good! Thanks for stopping by, Susan. Here is more about Tunnel Vision and Susan Shaw:
On her way home one evening, Liza has to force her way through a group of men in a train underpass. She doesn’t think anything of it, but when her mom is shot dead moments later, Liza’s world turns upside down. Even worse, Liza was really the target. Only hours after her mother’s death, Liza is nearly killed again and she and her dad are placed in the witness protection program. Leaving everything she's ever known behind, Liza and her dad pick up and move, never staying in one place for long. It's too big of a risk—and Liza's worst fear is realized when she gets recognized. The would-be killer is still on their trail, so all Liza ad her dad can do is keep running. Unsure whom to trust and where to go, they're just trying to stay alive.
