Lucky 7 Meme

I was tagged twice for this last week - thanks to Arlene Webb and DL Jackson -  but couldn't respond till now.

Here's how it works:
Each author is requested to
*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs as written and post them
on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors

I don't have a page 77 yet for my current WIP, so I'll  share seven lines from A Midwest Summer Night's Dream, which releases Friday (yay!):

“An old friend of mine is here.”
The voice sounded familiar, but Jeb couldn’t place it. He lifted his whiskey glass and relished its burn going down. On a slow blink, he focused on the next table over, where a friendly face from Tipton smiled back at him.
Maggie sat with an elderly gent. By the looks of it, his hand was working under her skirts. She looked as thrilled as a polecat finding a rotten piece of meat. 
You might surmise, correctly, that Maggie's not the heroine. :)  She is, however, a key character in the story. But you'll have to read it to find out more!

So now, onto the more difficult part of the task - choosing seven authors to carry on the meme (or not, as they choose!). Some Six Sentence Sunday wonder writers:
Jessica Subject 
Melissa MacKinnon
Siobhan Muir
Monica Enderle Pierce
Dianne Hartsock
Zee Monodee
Vivien Dean

What an interesting excerpt. Certainly catches the reader's attention! :) I am curious about the book.

Thanks Jess! Maggie's quite the character. :)
