Book Blurb Friday #55: "Free Time"


 Free Time
by Kathy Matthews

Sam Russell's wife and baby accompanied him down the wharf toward the Chelsea Rose, where he was hitching a ride from Newport to Seattle on his way to Alaska.  Sam was a foreign fisheries biologist with NOAA and would be spending the next couple of months on a Polish vessel, monitoring their catch.  Essentially, Sam was a fish cop.

As he gave his wife and baby a kiss and a hug, she said, "Sam, you be good."  "I always am good, honey!"  With that, she and the baby waved him goodbye, as the boat left the pier and headed out to the open sea.

Sam was looking forward to his free time away from home.  He was also looking forward to spending the next couple of months with his co-worker and lover, Alison.  

As he had told his wife, he was always good.  But he might not always have it both ways.  (150)

I am participating in Lisa's Book Blurb Friday, from over at Writing in the Buff.   It is fun, and you can play too!  Pretend that the picture on the top of this post is the cover of a book.  On the inside jacket, you have 150 words to entice the reader to buy your book.  Lisa gives us a week to think about next week's entry (she's gracious like that).  Please CLICK HERE on Friday to read what everybody else wrote.  To see my other BBF stories, please locate them on the left hand sidebar under the Book Blurb Friday button.

And I suppose she knew that and had A Plan ... or else Alison did ... or his fellow crew members ... otherwise there'd be no story to tell, except for counting fish.

Oh, yes, there's definitely something fishy about this biologist. And with a baby, too, the cad!
I'd buy this book, Kathy.

Sam sounds a bit slimy to me. I'm hoping he ends up without his wife or Alison. I'd read that!

Thanks for the video. It was relaxing just to watch it.

What a scoundrel! Whatever you've got planned for him plot-wise, I'm sure he deserves it. Well done.
