Longing - Chapter 1 (snippet #11)... 

Having a knack for remembering places, she recalled the address. After she typed the address into her phone, she shifted into first and let the automated voice guide her. She’d been to a nail salon near there. If memory served her correctly, she would arrive at a veterinary hospital. Animals didn’t seem to like Taylor, but if this Kimberly woman was hurting them, she would savor the taste of her death.
Ten minutes later she arrived at Woodridge Animal Hospital. She pulled into the back lot and parked in between a pack of unoccupied cars, facing the dog run. How would she go about this?
