This is the very beginning of mine and Jared's first book of our Lucy Robinson mystery series! I hope you enjoy and I'm open for some constructive criticism as well :)
"But mom, I don't want to move!" cried a very disappointed Lucy Robinson, "I have friends here!"
"But you'll make new friends in Colorado Springs Luce." said a calm Rachel Robinson. Lucy's father, Peter Robinson, had been offered a great job at the Colorado Springs Police Department and couldn't pass it up. As a child, it was always Peter's dream to be a cop and to join the Colorado Springs Police force. Now his dreams were finally coming true. As Peter entered the room, Lucy sent him a scowl of anger and disgust.
" I'm sorry Luce but I think it'll be a great opportunity for us. I just want to give you the life I never had."
" Thanks for caring and all Dad. I'll go but don't expect me to like it or anything." With a chuckle, Peter gave Lucy a hug that made it hard for her not to smile. The family joined together for a big breakfast before going their own separate ways for the day. Lucy was a sixteen year old senior at Saint Matthew's High in California. She was supposed to be a sophomore but she proved to be smart enough to skip up to her senior year. Her parents didn't hesitate to tell her how proud they were of her when they found out. Lucy gave her mother and baby brother, James-Matthew, a kiss and headed out the door to head to school. Lucy entered her pink Volkswagen Beetle, started the ignition, pulled out of the driveway, and headed westward towards Saint Matthew's.
