Moving right along, Joanne has a secret. She is going to night school for a law degree. She also has developed a passion to protect Charlie from Tom Donnelly just because she heard the rumor they were boy friend/girlfriend for all of a week in college. Charlie is a married woman with a business. Protective imp, isn’t Joanne, so when Charlie and her family go to the very special Haven for the summer, Joanne loses it, goes off her cookies and races her car to beat Tom there as if he has a plan to get rid of Charlie’s damaged husband from a car accident.
excerpt:After a quick goodby to Joanne, Charlie calls her best friend and sister-in-law, Shelley married to brother Jimmy. “Guess who called today; Tom Donnelly, that’s who!”Honey, you learned from your mother’s bad example; all guys want to get laid and you were so right to wait for Jerry.”
“How is he, Jerry?”Compared to before? Improving, I think.”
“About Tom, I think something is rotten in Denmark.”
“On the other hand give the hunk a chance; maybe he has ulterior motives.”
Charlie strode out of the building on Lake Shore Drive into the fading sun and hailed a cab. Time to go home to husband Jerry and daughter Emma, the two loves in her life.
Meanwhile Tom calls the office, speaks to a cold Joanne; he wants to know where Charlie and the gang are so he may be helpful teaching football this weekend. She throws a fit, hurries to Haven and the race is on.
