“What is she doing?” Andy asked in a furtive whisper, leaning close to Abby and Phil.
Abby studied the object of his attention for a moment, then pursed her lips. “I know that far-away look.”
They turned to look again at the person staring out the window, her fingers frozen over a keyboard while a wreath of steam curled up from an untouched mug beside her.
Phil glanced at his siblings meaningfully. “I think we can guess what’s going on.”
Andy’s cheek rose in a lopsided grin, and Abby caught the glint in his eyes.
Phil summed up the twins’ thoughts, fears, and excitement in one steady sentence–but even his voice had a thrill of expectancy as he spoke.
“I think she’s sending us on another adventure.”
That’s right! Baker #7 is underway!
The planning stage for this story is about finished, and actual chapters are appearing. 🙂
I’m really excited to follow the characters on this next installment of the Bakers’ escapades. It’s not usual for me to release many details about my works-in-progress, but I’d love your input on this one. Who are you most anxious to see return? What burning questions were you left with after Iceland Intrigue?
Though the flow of a story often changes within the process of writing and re-writing, my current plan involves:
- A man-hunt in the Scottish wilds
- Horse-riding, a castle, and a mystery at a hunting lodge
- Unraveling the secret of Jigson’s first name
- Tom getting a little more involved in the action
- Maybe a little falconry?
- The return of a character we haven’t seen in a while
Now it’s over to you. While I can’t include every suggestion, I’d love to hear what you dream the Bakers would do next. Maybe a few of your ideas could make it into the final version . . . ? Let me know your thoughts!
