Memorial Day. Only once a year. Not often enough to turn our thoughts and hearts to those who have served our country.

And now my friends, To Be Continued when Beth Malone meets the pool guy, Maverick.

excerpt: A muscular man knocked at the slider doors, tall and rugged in a denim jacket, worn jeans and boots. Beth unlocked the door to slide it open and he entered, his energy filling the room to bounce off the walls.

Is Doctor Malone here, uh don’t mean to be pushy but he always pays first Monday of the season.”

Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry as tears splashed down Beth’s cheeks in front of this stranger, her only confidante. “The doctor is gone, kaput, flew, the coop, like bye bye, hasta la vista, fare thee well, auf weidersehn, have a nice day.”

An awkward moment passed before he said, “I’ll take care of your beautiful pool.”

  1. Excellent! Hey! You should be a writer. 😉 I feel the energy leap from your prose. I love your characters. Awesome six!!

  2. Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry as tears splashed down Beth’s cheeks in front of this stranger, her only confidante.

    This line is so very telling about the state of her life. Beautifully written.

  3. I think she needs a hug, and the pool guy is just the person to give it to her. Maybe more. 😉
