I dropped the ball, folks. When sickness interferes with life. . .

Help Wanted is the title of my book. River’s Edge is the series. The small town’s motto is Kindness to Strangers.


Steve and Sally Atwood have some big adjustments to make when they move to River’s Edge. Steve has lost his career in the corporate world and finds work painting houses. Sally flings off her apron and pursues her lifelong dream to be a reporter in the small town with a big heart, where the motto is ‘Kindness to Strangers’.

Afraid he is losing Sally to a more exciting world, Steve panics, but despite Sally’s lecherous new boss, together they rediscover all the love of their thirty-five years together and the excitement that brings.

Book Hook: Sally is having lunch with her new boss, Lance: “Sally, ever since we met I can’t get you out of my mind; I’m not sleeping or eating.”
“Lance, I’m just a middle aged woman at the beginning of a new phase in my life and that doesn’t mean I’ll make the mistake of pushing someone away who has loved me for thirty five years.”
“All right, you’re mine, Sally, in business because I don’t want anyone else to grab your talent before we have a chance to work together.”
Relieved brunch ended, Sally rose, bumped into Lance on the way up and found herself wrapped in his powerful arms, their lips together. She didn’t break away until his tongue, like a heat seeking missile, plunged into her mouth and then she pushed him away with “No.”

  1. Yeah, a person definitely needs to watch out for those male “heat seeking missiles.” Guys tend to use them to their advantage and without invitation. Unfortunately, when used as weapons, they can be unwelcome and invasive.

    Revealing snippet, Charmaine. I’m sorry you’re not feeling well, but I’m glad you were able to come out and join us.
