Excerpt From “McKensie’s Christmas Gift”

The fog cleared from McKensie’s brain. “And knowing my aunt, she insisted you have the wedding here.”

“Yeah. I thought about moving the location, but Shirley insisted we still have it at the hotel, and Olivia—”

“Wouldn’t have wanted you to change a thing. I get it. Yes, you’ll have it here.” McKensie prided herself on handling tense situations, a handy talent when managing a kitchen. She avoided looking at Cameron throughout her conversation with Julie and realized he hadn’t moved, patient as ever. “When is the wedding?”

“The week before Christmas.”

McKensie raised a brow and studied her friend. “That’s fast.”

Julie shrugged. “When it’s right, it’s right. That reminds me, I have one more thing to ask Shirley about the food. Meet you in the foyer in ten, big brother.” She stopped at the door and pointed to McKensie. “I will call you tomorrow. We have so much to catch up on.”

Julie exited the office with as much excitement as she entered. McKensie replayed some of her last words over in her mind. When it’s right, it’s right.

Excerpt From “Mending Her Heart”

Happily-ever-after had become a fantasy kept alive by her large collection of romance novels. She’d been in love with a hero, even married him, only to have him turn into a villain.  

“I worry about you.”

“I know, but you don’t have to. I’m fine. Really.”

Aunt Lottie’s brow knitted. “I’ve seen that look before, Mia, on the face of every other heartbroken woman.” She sat down on the couch, her eyes more serious than before. “Don’t close yourself off to love.”

“It’s not love that’s the problem.” Mia sighed. “It’s the trust. I don’t think I can trust another man again.”

She ran a hand through Mia’s hair. “The pain in our lives reminds us to appreciate the happiness. You can’t have one without the other. Maybe Peter wasn’t your destiny, just a stop along the way to your perfect man.”

“No way. I’m done with men—relationships—all of it.”

Aunt Lottie chuckled and sat on the couch. “Famous last words, my darling. Famous last words.”
