    Excerpt from

    Danger at Deer Hollow

    by

    Christine Bush

    Chapter 1

    "Have you had any private nursing experience, Miss Greene?"

    For over an hour Libby had looked the agency interviewer directly in the eye, patiently answering his seemingly endless list of questions about her qualifications. "No, Mr. Hoxley, I haven't. My experience has been primarily as a floor nurse at the local hospital. However, I feel that I'm very capable of adjusting to a position in a private home."

    After ending her relationship with Adam Stone, who was an orthopedic surgeon, Libby hadn't been able to cope with the constant association with him. Working in the same hospital, she was constantly running into him on the floor, in the cafeteria, and in the staff meetings. Seeing that sad, rejected look always in his eyes, haunting her everywhere she went, was just too much. He had been a fundamental part of her life for the past three years, since the day she finished nursing school, in fact. He was a brother of one of her former classmates, and she had met him at a reception after her graduation ceremonies.

    Together for three years, and now so far apart that she couldn't bear to work in the same building.

    "Well, Miss Greene, I think I have all of the information that is required for the time being. Thank you for registering with our agency. I hope you'll be hearing from us soon regarding a suitable position."

    Mr. Hoxley's pinched voice shook her back to the present. The interview was finally over.

    "Thank you, sir. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you."

    A quick handshake and she found herself heading for the parking lot, wondering, not for the first time, if she had done the right thing when she resigned from her position at the hospital. Jobs were so hard to come by these days, and the small sum of money she had stashed away for the proverbial rainy day was not going to last her through a storm of great length! But then the vision of Adam's hurt face flashed in front of her again, and she gave a resigned sigh.

    The stress had been bad for both of them, and as difficult as it seemed, a clean break was the only way to clear the air and give them both time to recuperate. She had turned down his proposal of marriage with mixed emotions. She cared about Adam. And she had thought that she had known him well, known his desires and goals in life, the things that were important to him. How wrong a person could be!

    In the past few months new aspects of his personality had come to light, and they were aspects that were very foreign to Libby's ideals. An increasing love of money had been the first change she had noticed. His concerns for his patients had gradually become financial instead of physical. And then he seemed to develop a cruel streak, beginning with harsh commands and criticisms of his nursing staff, and building to the incident that had almost broken Libby's heart as she realized that Adam was not the right man for her, not a man she could love and respect.

    They had been driving along a beautiful, tree-lined country road. It was after midnight, and they had a lovely, romantic evening together. After cocktails, dinner, dancing, and soft conversation at a rustic little inn in a nearby town, Libby was feeling happy and relaxed. They drove along in the summer night, enjoying the breeze as it flowed in the open car window. Perhaps the hardness she had noticed in Adam in the past few months had been her imagination. Or perhaps he had been under some great strain that she didn't know about. Whatever the moodiness had been, it seemed to have disappeared. Tonight he was the Adam she remembered. Carefree, gentle, laughing, and sensitive. He was attentive and romantic, and Libby...
