“Look out!” Nick hollered and stepped in front of Susannah, intending to protect her by putting himself in harm’s way.

Instead, he missed his chance when the toe of his cowboy boot caught on a rock buried beneath the snow, nearly causing him to lose his balance. To his surprise and, he admitted, his chagrin, Susannah grabbed hold of his elbow to steady him before _____ (verb) sideways, her hands outstretched. 

“No worries. I’ll handle this.”

What was she thinking? A petite thing like Susannah, no matter how _____ (adjective) she was, could never stand up to such a rampaging menace. Nick scrambled up but before he could intervene, Susannah whipped out a large, brightly-colored kerchief and waved it with unladylike vigor. To Nick’s stunned surprise the confused troublemaker veered away, crashing into the tree and felling it before running off as quickly as it had appeared.

  1. So just today I realized you said only first chapter of the books- not the whole “look inside”!! So my first two days of words are towards the ends of the look insides. So sorry!
    Today I did it correctly. Haha!

    • Susan P, you’re doing everything right! It’s perfectly okay to choose words toward the end of the “Look Inside.” In fact, we hope everyone reads the whole thing. 🙂 Words can be chosen from the beginning, the middle, or the end. It doesn’t matter to us where in the “Look Inside.” No worries!

      Thank you for playing!
