Excerpt #15:

Windflower sat in his usual corner seat while Moira got his order together. When she came out a few minutes later with his coffee and sandwiches he gave her a hug along with his thanks.
“Sheila called me,” said Moira after Windflower released her from his grasp. “It wasn’t as bad as she thought and they’re now at the hotel in Marystown.”
“I talked to her too.”
“She had to do it, you know.”
Windflower smiled weakly and tipped his hat goodnight. “Close her up, Moira. This is going to be a big one.”
With that, he was soon back in his car and shortly afterwards offering the tray of sandwiches around the detachment lunchroom. It looked like Tizzard was planning to eat the whole kit and caboodle so Windflower packaged up the remnants and put them in the fridge for later.

    I read and enjoyed the previous 3 books. Couldn't put them down until I finished them.

      That is so great. If you liked the first 3, you will absolutely enjoy A Twist of Fortune. At least I hope so.
