August already? OMG. Enjoy summer while it lasts, readers, friends, and sixers. This excerpt is from Now What?, a book close to my heart although all my books are right there as well. Suddenly widowed Carly Evans hasn’t a clue as to what comes next. Like a fish out of water, she struggles to find footing in a world where once she was part of a team and now she has to play the singles game and doesn’t know how. Rules have changed since she was young.
Enjoy the journey from the beginning.
It was 2:30 a.m. when the phone rang and I fumbled for it, my heart starting a race toward bad news. Our doctor’s voice urged me to hurry so I crammed into clothes as if I expected this call.
It is only a fever that won’t go down, isn’t it?
Our doctor shook his head, “Carly, I’m so sorry.”
Settling in beside my Bob, I held his cooling hand and asked the two words spoken many times during our years together, “Now what?” I slipped off his wedding ring and held it in my fist; the gold band was warm. I clung to him and said, “Come back to me, dearest,” but later found that sometimes what you wish for is more than you can live with.
