Excerpt from Thunderstruck by Roxanne St. Claire
Shelby Jackson stepped through the door of Thunder Racing and sucked in a lungful of her favorite scent"motor oil and gasoline, tinged with a hint of welding glue. No double espresso or honey-laden pastry could smell better in the morning. But there was something different in the air today. She sniffed again, drawn into the race shop by her nose and her sixth sense.
There was something pungent, a little bitter but fresh. Her heart jumped and her work boots barely touched the gleaming white floor as she hurried toward the paint-and-body shop. With a solid shove, she flung the double doors, and they smacked the walls with a satisfying synchronized clunk.
And then she drank in the prettiest sight she'd seen in eight long years.
Number fifty-three lived again. "Oh, Daddy," she whispered as she approached the race car, the hand over her mouth barely containing her delight. "You'd love it."
In truth, Thunder Jackson would roar like an eight-hundredhorsepower engine at the sight of the screaming-yellow "fiftythree" surrounded by a sea of purple as painful as a fresh black eye. Then he'd calm down and throw his arm around her shoulder with a mile-wide grin and a gleam of approval in his eyes.
