Wordless Wednesday- The Mid Week Tease Version

I’m taking part in Sandra Bunino’s Mid Week Tease this week – check out all the teases here or by clicking the icon. Here’s my new cover and a little excerpt as well for my part of the tease. MidWeekTease

Rachel Newsome glanced around the bar. This place was not her style at all and the fact that Marcia and Annette wanted to hang around in a cop bar made her nervous. She was a defense lawyer first and foremost and cops were inherently the enemy. The place wasn’t impressive at all. It smelled of stale beer and sweat. She wondered how many diseases were floating around the premises and how many roaches might be in the area where the bar food was cooked.

“I’m not sure this was a good idea.” Rachel tried to keep the whine out of her voice.

“Come on. Loosen up. You’re always so tense. Have fun. Find a hot cop to ogle. I already see several,” Annette said.

“Let’s get a drink and sit at the bar.” Marcia led the way to some stools.

The female bartender came over. “What’ll you have?”

Rachel asked for a Tom Collins.

“Lady, you’re in a beer joint. We don’t do fancy drinks with little umbrellas. You must have missed your turn when you left the courthouse and got lost. We got beer and we got straight liquor over ice. Do you want something like that or not?” The bartender slapped her wet towel on the counter.

“Do you have white wine?” Rachel asked.

“I do. I have two kinds. Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. Which will you have?”

All three said, “Chardonnay.”

The bartender muttered, “Figures,” as she reached above her head to grab three glasses. She poured the wine and held her hand out for payment.

Rachel pulled out her credit card and handed it over. She looked around the room. “Let’s get a table. I’m not sure I want to sit up here near that surly woman.”

The bartender came back with the charge slip. Rachel signed it and stood up with her glass of wine. She walked over to an empty table near the pool area.

When her friends joined her, Annette said, “Good choice, Rach. Lots of bending over the pool table to get good shots going on here. And those tight jeans. Wow. These men are in great shape. What a view.”
