Closing ShiftBy: Cameron D. Garriepy
Format: ePub Un-encrypted (DRM free)
Reader Review: The writer went to great lengths to keep the reader involved in this story. I couldnt walk away from this story. It grips you from the start and pulls you in. At the end you just wanted more. In my way of thinking this attention to detail is what make a book worth reading
Elli prefers working the evening shift in a coffee shop so she can plan, unnoticed, her escape from a life of quiet desperation. Will the arrival of an intense stranger draw her out?

|Note||ePub, short for electronic publication is one of our favorites and should be yours for a couple of reasons. ePub offers reflowable text giving you flexibility to manipulate how the digital content is presented.

Three years from now, we predict ePub will rule the eBook landscape.|

She felt him watching her brisk movements. She kept her eyes on her work, but she could sense his tension--as if he were a river of words barely contained, and she the dam whose integrity relied on silence.
“Elli,” he said, as if testing the feel of a new word in a foreign language. “Is that short for anything?”
She caught the reflection of her name tag in shiny stainless steel of the espresso machine.
She hated the nickname. When she was small, her stepfather had insisted upon it. He’d thought her given name was too old-fashioned. In this, as in all things, her mother had taken her new husband’s direction.
Throughout her childhood the nickname had tangled around her like winding sheets, her idea of self as dead as the father who’d named her.

“Elspeth. I like that,” he said warmly. “It’s unusual. Lovely.”
Tears prickled in her eyes and in the bridge of her nose.
“Thank you,” she replied quietly.
“That’s a Scottish name, isn’t it?”
She nodded, spooning the foam over the top. His attempts at casual conversation unnerved her....
