Family Treed: A Big Uneasy Short Story by Pauline Baird Jones

$2.99

Amazon

“Family Treed” is 1.5 in my Big Uneasy series. This short story is my amuse bouche, a taste, a quick bite for my readers, a chance to check in on Nell and Alex (from Relatively Risky).

Nell’s not sure why the mob wants to have dinner with her. She is sure she wants a cop at her side.

Alex wouldn’t let Nell dine with the mob without him, despite much unease from his many siblings.

But as the dark and stormy night’s dinner progresses, Nell wonders if she’s putting Alex’s life in danger.

Can they survive dinner with the killing cousins?

This short story is about 13,000 words or 33 printed pages.

When I started “Family Treed,” I was determined to keep it a short story. The plot, the characters fought back, throwing complications at me like knives and bullets. I dodged. I ducked. And when they weren’t looking, I trimmed out everything trying to turn it into a novel. And while I trimmed, I watched Top Chef. When they were asked to create an amuse bouche, I had an aha moment.

That’s what “Family Treed” was supposed to be. And an amuse bouche was what it was going to be. It’s a peek, a tiny taste of the challenges still facing Nell as she tries to come to terms with what has bubbled up out of the past. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.” And if they aren’t dead? Well, crap happens.

There will be more adventures for Nell and Alex and yes, there will be upcoming adventures for Alex’s many siblings. When one “meets” a family like the Baker’s, it would be crazy not to invite them over to play. So I hope you’ll stay tuned for more installments in The Big Uneasy.

While you’re waiting for the next novel in the series, I hope you’ll browse through my back list. In addition to Relatively Risky: The Big Uneasy 1, I have some more romantic suspense cluttering up my back list. There’s my Lonesome Lawmen (also available in single editions and audio) and my humorous romantic suspense (Do Wah Diddy Die, Mystery Stories, and The Spy Who Kissed Me. I also plan to re-release my lone gothic, A Dangerous Dance, by the end of the 2013. For now, it is only available in audio and used print editions.

If you don’t mind expanding your reading horizons to the stars, and beyond, then I hope you’ll check out my science fiction romance and my science fiction/steampunk romance series, Project Enterprise. The series began with The Key, then continues with: Girl Gone Nova, Tangled in Time (novella/steampunkish), Steamrolled (steampunk/science fiction romance), and Kicking Ashe. There is also a short story collection called Project Enterprise: The Short Stories. The series is also available in audio and some of the titles are Whispersynched with the digital editions.

And last, but hardly least, is my time travel novel to World War II: Out of Time. Most authors have a book that is THE book they had to write no matter what. Out of Time is that book for me. For more information about all my novels, visit me at www.paulinebjones.com.

Keri Burke hadn't always been gun-shy around men. But pregnant and alone, the owner of K.B. Temps certainly wasn't ready to start learning how to trust again now. Why wouldn't Ryan Kincaid, ruggedly handsome business tycoon, take no for an answer? Somehow her failed marriage, her difficult pregnancy, and her one disastrous mistake didn't seem to matter. Keri knew that a man like Ryan was used to getting his way, and that spelled danger. The last thing she wanted was a keeper, especially one who could be so disarmingly gentle and so wickedly sensual at the same time. Against her own will he was bringing her back to life. He was kind and caring. Why was it so hard to believe that he was the man she could trust with her heart, her future, her life?
