Hi Gang and welcome to another Sunday before autumn leaves begin to fall. YIKES!
Continuing with Young at Heart, the second in my series of Mature Romance under the umbrella title The Beginning not The End, I’m picking up where Collin Brody, the Irisher with the sad face invites Joyce Campbell to lunch after rehab. He beckons and a limousine pulls up. They are whisked away to the fancy River Club at the West Haverstraw Marina, Joyce stilled dressed in sweats after rehab. This is the last excerpt from Young at Heart.
excerpt in eight:
“This game is called ‘Getting To Know You’ and I see you’re worried because you thought our lunch would lead to something unpleasant, right?”
I nodded, bag clutched in hand to leave. Smoothing the worry line between my brows with a tender touch, he smiled, the gesture so natural my fears calmed. “My family came from Ireland with a small brood of children and not too much money when pay dirt hit for the Brody’s as Pop started a brewery.”
Rain beat at the windows and suddenly big hail stones pelted making staccato sounds reverberate through the glass enclosed River Club. Just as quickly, the temperature outside dropped and snow fell.
“My children, especially Karen, the youngest who has twin daughters, are possessive about me as they guard me from gold-digging potential trophy wives since dear Maureen passed and they warn me to watch out for the first woman to knock on my door with Irish stew.”
They don’t have to worry about me since I’m not big on cooking
