How About Another Six?

Welcome back, or if you haven't been here before, then just, welcome.  I'm sharing sentences from my recent release, First Degree Innocence.  To give you an idea of the storyline, here's the blurb:


Carrie Lang’s sheltered life ends with a prison sentence for involvement in a bank robbery. Her arrest comes on the day she’s called in sick and stayed inside, so she has no explanation how an eye-witness describes her in great detail, down to the make and model of her car. A terrible mistake’s been made, and her insistence of innocence falls on deaf ears, even among her fellow inmates. A plan for retribution is brewing, and na├»ve Carrie finds herself smack dab in the middle of an evil scheme concocted by the prison bully.  A ten year sentence seems mild when she’s threatened with death for refusing to participate. Can Carrie find a way out of this horrible nightmare, or is she destined to spend her days locked in terror, isolation, and the cold gray interior of prison walls?

Here's today's six sentences.  Hope you enjoy them.
 “Oh, that feels so good.”  Jet practically moaned.  “So, how do you like the amenities so far?” 
When Carrie glanced in her direction, Jet licked her lips and pushed her sodden hair from her face with slow and exaggerated movements.
Hadn't the woman proclaimed she wasn't a lesbian?  Why did her ogling and suggestive behavior indicate otherwise?

Wonderful line choices to show mixed signals, and what a terrible set up to be forced into. Great plot premise.

I agree, great show to reveal this character. Actions speak louder than words. :)

I continued to be haunted by this woman's terrible ordeal. It just seems to go from bad to worse. Wonderfully descriptive six.

You've got a terrific plot, and I loved your six sentences. Really good "show" versus "tell" here.
And thanks for commenting on my six!
