Excerpt – Day Five
Sometimes she wished she lived farther away from her job so she could use the driving time to chill or just think. At least she’d have the apartment to herself for a while until Lottie got home. Soon, she’d have the apartment all to herself. Lottie’s wedding was in December. What would she do then? At least they’d still be working together at the resort.
As she slogged toward home, her mind swung toward the other wedding, Rick and Rainbow’s. January 5. Four months to deal—or not—with Nason. And Irina. She shuddered thinking of Irina’s hard face when she realized she was in Fiona’s presence after all these years. Irina hadn’t changed at all. She’d always looked pinched.
Although the August sun beat down despite the five o’clock hour, the sea breeze cooled her skin and ruffled the palm fronds sparkling in the bright sun. If she moved, she’d lose this feeling of being in paradise. When she wasn’t dealing with Lottie’s upcoming desertion and Nason’s past abandonment.
The ringing of her cell phone cut into her pity party. Mom. The last straw for today.
