Tomorrow is Canada's 151st Birthday, so here's wishing a Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!
As Christiane France, I write LGBT, MTS, PA, and RO. My alter ego, Chris Grover, writes MTS. This is a weekly blog hop where the participants post 8-10 sentences from a published work or a work in progress. The blog posts go live between 12:00 noon Saturday and 9:00a.m. Sunday. It’s a great way to discover new authors and expand networks. So be sure to visit and check out all the WeekendWritingWarriors blogs.
For this week’s edition of WeekendWritingWarriors www.wewriwa.com I have yet another snippet from Without A Clue. A romantic mystery/suspense set in the City of Light and Love--Paris, France. In this snippet, Philippe continues to warn Paula of the dangers of trying to find the diary by herself. Enjoy!

…If he even suspects anyone is trying to interfere with his plans, I guarantee he will take immediate action.”
“How do we know he didn't sell it months ago? He could have made a quick sale to one of those collectors who aren't so fussy about how they get such things.”
Philippe de Valois shrugged. “Perhaps. But the diary is an extremely rare and valuable item. I doubt a sale would pass completely unnoticed even under those conditions.”
“But it's not impossible?”
“No. Even so, I do not believe it has been resold. In fact, I am reasonably certain that it has not.”
^ ^ ^Blurb:
Nine months ago, within hours of purchasing a valuable antiquarian diary for their grandfather, Paula Sinclair's brother, Eric, was killed by a car bomb and the diary disappeared.
Private investigator, Luc Dupré, along with the police, insist the diary was destroyed in the explosion. Paula isn't convinced. No trace of either the diary or Eric's briefcase was found in the rubble, and she takes it to mean the diary was stolen. The diary wasn't insured and with the bank still owed half a million dollars, Paula cannot sit idly by and watch her beloved grandfather forced into bankruptcy.
Following a mysterious phone call and a series of cryptic postcards, Paula returns to Paris to hear a rumor that the diary is being offered for sale by secret auction. She also finds out that the diary once belonged to Luc's family. When her relationship with Luc takes a sudden change from business to personal, she's positive he's using her and his job to get it back.
