Snippet Sunday 24-03-13

Thank you to everyone who visited last week and to those who left comments. Your thoughts are always appreciated.
For today's Sunday Snippet I'm starting a little ways into the beginning of a new WIP (working title Horseshoe 1) 

Again I don't have names for my characters at this stage hence the 'he' and 'she.'

“There’s bears and wolves in them there mountains,” the estate agent had prophesied with relish with so much relish when she paid her deposit, she’d wondered whether he was deliberately trying to scare her away.

Three years ago she’d lived another life. A life full of love and laughter, of friendships and happiness. It took her a while to find happiness here in her new home, but she’d found it. A quieter happiness, hopefully more enduring and one that would keep her grounded in reality. A happiness that never relied on others, and therefore could be snatched away from her.

That's it for this week, :-) Thanks for coming by and you'll find lots more free-read snippets at Snippet Sunday

Great beginning! It really sets up the story and shows a lot about the main character. Nice snippet!

Fantastic hook. Loved the entire set up and want to know more about her life and why she's living there. What drove her, in other words. I have a feeling there's a story there. :-) Great job!

I like the feelings in this snippet and felt so happy for her that she'd found a peaceful place, not even knowing any other details. Excellent excerpt!

Ah...but happiness without risk soon grows boring. I doubt that'll stay the case for long.
