I swiveled the monitor around. “I don’t believe it. Tell me you didn’t say this.”

Vicki Batman

Jacquie Biggar


One glass is really my limit, but I deserved the second glass after today’s debacle.

Joanne Guidoccio


When it came to Elise, he’d always be an outsider watching life unfold from the sidelines. He’d never be able to give her the things she deserved no matter how hard he worked.

Oh, she wasn’t naïve enough to believe neither of her children, as high school seniors, had taken a drink away from home, but she had an agreement with them never to get in a vehicle with a person who’d been drinking, or to ever to drive

“Mom—” she pleaded, unconsciously reaching out to the woman who’d cuddled her when she’d fallen off her bicycle and scraped her knee, but there was no break in the stern expression.

She hated the position she’d put Gary in, breathed in deep, lifted one finger at a time from the death grip on the cell. Michelle could at least plead client confidentiality.

Marsha West


“Why didn’t his latest hoochie coochie step up?” I asked. “Miss Perky and Perfect?” She shook her head, sending her auburn wavy locks flying. “That’s long over–thank God. No one liked her. She was all talk and no action.”

Vicki Batman


His plan had been to hang with Kyle and the kids, but when asked he’d jumped on Jared’s invitation like a dirty shirt. Speaking of which… He looked down and made sure his tie covered the small grease stain on his dress shirt.

Joanne Guidoccio


“I’ll ask the questions, Ms. Barlow.” Where’d the nice friendly law enforcement officer she’d dealt with on earlier occasions go?

Tears finally streamed like a Brazos River waterfall in the spring.

Marsha West


Coupled with the Festival of Leaves in the fall, the Festival of Tulips in the spring, Festival of the Fourth every July, and the Festival of Trees in December, visitors had pumped beaucoup de cash into the community, specifically reviving this part of town.

Vicki Batman


The cherry trees lining Main Street were laden with buds, the delicate pink flowers set to open within the next couple of weeks—hopefully, in time for the wedding—and birds sang from the branches.

“Maybe someday in the future,” she teased.

“Shot down again? Oh well.”

“Wounded, but not killed.”

Marian Lanouette


The sun shone on her white hair, contrasting with the warm watermelon shade of her mid-calf linen skirt and matching shirt. Her enthusiasm was infectious and the idea of buying the shop teased Jill.

Marsha West


When he softly said, “Janie,” his breath teased my ear, sending butterfly-like shivers over my body.

Vicki Batman


It had started out as a joke, her sneaking in to leave cute notes, or a piece of sexy lingerie to tempt and tease. But then it graduated to something darker—compulsive.

Jacquie Biggar

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.

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.

He loosened the silk knot at his throat and stuffed the tie in the coat pocket. “Beautiful, we need to talk.”

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?

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.”
