My snippet today comes from a romantic thriller released earlier this year by Dreamspinner Press and is part of my Circles series.
Mason looked around the pit. He walked the few feet from one end to the other, then gazed up for a minute. “Riece, someone dug this pit and covered it in such a way that when some animal walked on it, the wood would give way. There is no sign of anything being down here, no bones or scat remains, nothing.”.
“So that makes me think whoever did this comes back and checks it often. I’d much rather you were up there”—Mason pointed up—“than down here if they come back and find us. Honestly the more I think about why this might be here, the more it’s starting to creep me out.”

I hope Riece can get Mason out of the pit before the digger comes back. (And I want to know how the two of them got there to begin with.)

What P.T. said! I definitely want to know more.

Nice build up of a sense of menace, as well as development of Mason as a sharp, observant character.
