Excerpt from one of the small town adventures in Crystal’s Mill Town Mystery:
Crystal crawled under the propped-up wall toward the safe. The space was much tighter than she imagined. There didn’t seem to be any place she could get a good angle to pry the safe door. Then, it dawned on her. The wall began sinking back down!
She hurried to get out and heard the wall shift, brushing against her back as she pulled her head and shoulders free. Then the weight of the wall pushed her legs into the mud.
She tried to shove with her arms, but she was stuck tight.
