Book II of the Calendar Girls Series is available today, and I hope you’ll join me for the celebration.
Francesca lost her first love. Emily’s teetering on her last nerve. Will they risk their hearts to gain everything they both desire?
Five years after her fiancé, Michael, left her for a job on the other side of the country, Dr. Francesca Florentino is focused on her work as an emergency room physician and has no time for a love life. That is, until Josh Candolero charms his way into her heart on the same night Michael returns, vowing to win her back.
Meanwhile, Emily Handler, a 911 dispatcher married to her high school sweetheart for the last seventeen years, can’t seem to figure out what happened to that spark she and hubby, Roy, used to share in their marriage. A life-altering heart attack was not exactly the shake-up she had in mind.
Now, both women will seize control of their lives and discover their hearts’ true happiness for always.
Welcome back to Snug Harbor, where the ocean breeze is a lover’s kiss, and the salt air always carries a hint of love.
Here’s a snippet between Josh and Francesca:
“I quit my job. I think I can make a lot more money as a professional dancer. What do you think?”
For a minute, the joke escaped me as a familiar fantasy filled my imagination. A buff and gleaming Josh in a skin-tight black tank top and jeans, hard hat perched on his thick dark hair, and tool belt swirling as he gyrated just for me while Barry White’s smoky voice sang in the background. As soon as Josh whipped the tear-away jeans from his hips, I shook myself alert. “I’ve seen you dance,” I managed to say with aplomb. “The fantasy is better than the reality.”
His sharp intake of breath sounded like a hiss in my ear. “Ouch. That’s harsh, Frannie.”
I actually laughed at his exaggeration of pain. “Toughen up, cowboy. And while you’re finding your man-spine, tell me why you’re calling me this early in the morning.”
I looked out the window again. Really? He called to give me a weather report? Okay, I’d play. “Yes, that’s what happens when the clouds accumulate too much moisture. It’s perfectly natural and won’t hurt you.”
