The Promise of Sunsets by Elizabeth Dolan-Cancian
Excerpt from Chapter Nine:
As Detective Kristoffer Larsen headed down the hallway, he heard
laughter emanating from the squad room, which abruptly ended
as soon as he walked through door.
“What’s going on here?” Larsen asked.
“Nothing,” Sanchez smirked, hardly suppressing his chuckling.
“Come on, Sanchez, give Clooney his present,” Detective Morris
“Sure, here you go—Clooney,” Sanchez laughed and handed him the
exquisitely wrapped box. “Tell us, how old is your girlfriend? Twelve?”
The detectives in the room burst into laughter. “So where did you two
meet, the playground?” Morris teased.
