Rosa shook her head. “Does she really think that no one is watching when that black Mercedes shows up in her driveway? Half of Moonglo is Italian. Who is she fooling?”

Joanne Guidoccio


Terror and adrenaline coursed through her system, settling like ice inside the marrow of her bones. She couldn’t stay. Couldn’t let Benji know what a fool she’d been.

Jeannie Hall


“You don’t want to take one car?”

“No, it’s wise to take both.” In case I want to do something foolish and go home with you.”

Marian Lanouette


“Well, yes. It’s not like I’ve ever worn a wire before. I’d be a fool not to be nervous.”

Marsha West


I’d made a fool of myself over Ben. And Daniel had known, even tried to warn me. I felt so stupid, incredibly embarrassed.

Vicki Batman


The last time she was on the ice—a long time ago—she’d made a fool out of herself trying to show off for a handsome senior in her school and ended up in the hospital nursing a broken arm. Fun times.

Levi watched Holly. Her reticence was a cloak she hid behind like a safety net. She didn’t need to protect herself from him, but that was something she had to learn with time.

Jacquie Biggar


The open house for my new career counseling office needed a proper launch, one that could only be achieved with pastries from a Sicilian bakery.

Joanne Guidoccio


I needed to be alone. I might have hurt her feelings. I didn’t use tact when I told her.

Why are you intentionally sabotaging your relationship with her?

Marian Lanouette


She had to get up. She had to get back inside to find Brett. Yes, she needed Brett.

Marsha West

Really? This from the guy who ecstatically turned my life into a living hell? Who wants nothing better than to rub in how stupid I’ve been?

Jacquie Biggar


There were moments—like this one—when I didn’t really know or want to know my cousin.

Joanne Guidoccio


“I don’t want you to leave, Mia. I’m sorry I’m making a mess of this. There are times … after I examine a body that I’m not fit for human company.”

Marian Lanouette


“Mom wants to make sure you can take care of me if need be,” Devon glanced up at Brett as he laughed. “I’ll be sure to bring my security credentials and maybe the results of my last weapons practice.”

“I’d like to trust you, Brett, but I’ve been betrayed before and now again by Franklin. I’m not depending on anyone again.”

Marsha West


All that come-hither stuff Ben had doled had been friendly teasing. He didn’t want me.
He wanted Maggie.

Vicki Batman


Susan hesitated on the threshold, their gazes fusing across the distance. A cold draft knifed its way between them filled with ugly words and betrayals.

Jacquie Biggar


“I’m healing, and doctor on duty gave me the name of a professional to speak with after I finish up with the police. The doctor said it would help me deal with the betrayals from Cedric and Linden.”

I think wasting my time with Blake narrows the chances of me finding Edy Dunstan alive. I don’t want you as an enemy, Mayor, but I have to do the job before politics.”

Marian Lanouette


“What if she finds out her father is a thief, or the bad guys come after Bailey or me again?” She squared her shoulders and clenched her hands into fists. “I’ll do anything to keep her safe…”

Marsha West

Three days ago, I’d hoped he’d propose; only now, I didn’t want it. Our marriage would have been one big, huge, horrendous mistake.

Vicki Batman


“No, I don’t think you murdered your… Tim.” He couldn’t bring himself to say husband; it rubbed him the wrong way every time he thought about her married to another man. “But the authorities are going to look into your relationship, and when they do…”

Jacquie Biggar


“Did you think that marriage would last? I didn’t think it would last a year.”

Joanne Guidoccio


“She started crying, begged forgiveness. Said she only wanted to spice up our marriage. So you see I’m partly to blame for all this if she felt it needed to be spiced up.” Blake hung his head in his hands.

Stubborn man.

She’d grown up with people behaving the way he did, and men who didn’t disappointed her. Scott and she weren’t dating by any means, but she liked his innate politeness.

Marsha West


The words creep, jerk, moron, and “why the hell am I still dating him?” jumbled my thoughts around.

Vicki Batman


He rose and shook her father’s hand and smiled at her mother. “I think what your daughter is saying in a roundabout way is that we’re interested in dating.”

Jacquie Biggar


After a disastrous blind date that one of the teachers pressured me into accepting, I swore I’d have nothing to do with Leo ever again.

Marsha West

Vicki Batman


Not that she would mind sharing a room with the big bad sheriff, but one with a bed would be preferable. Wait, did she really just think that? Obviously, it’d been too long since she had a meaningful relationship—hashtag sex.

Jacquie Biggar


Benjamin had been far from celibate during his time in New York, but those times paled in comparison to this, to touching the one woman he’d always craved.

Jacquie Biggar


All those years ago when I had fantasized about connecting with Carlo, I had envisioned many wonderful scenarios where we would bump into each other and fall in love—on the beach, dance floor, even at a bar.

Joanne Guidoccio


Though her hair had been washed in Ciara’s shampoo, her neck drenched in Ciara’s perfume, this imposter was not his beloved Ciara.

Marian Lanouette


Probably shouldn’t kiss her, but he’d love—no, not love, lust. He lusted after her. He wrenched his attention away from her and focused on the letters.

Marsha West


“This boy’s all grown up, Kelly, and this man—-me—-loves you” –his palm smacked his chest– “deeply. Forever. For always.”

Jacquie Biggar


If seeing her name on a book was all that mattered to her, she could’ve easily published her mystery with their company ages ago.

Marian Lanouette


Given J.D.’s reaction, the gal meant something. That’s the angle he needed to take with the questioning, but first he needed to find out more about this mystery woman.

How she could be this hot, when the place she’d inhabited on her walk had been cold and dark as a cave in the arctic was a mystery.
