Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! I have two more snippets to share with you from the opening chapter of Learning to Love, then I’ll be switching to the next book in my series, so enjoy it while it lasts! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off – Towanda has just informed Rebecca that her “old soul” is in need of a younger man…
Before Rebecca could comment on that startling conclusion, Towanda’s gaze shot to the opening of the tent with interest. Rebecca swiveled in her seat and caught Addie’s guilty expression. Had she been listening to their conversation?
“Oh, Addie! Come in, come in!” Towanda motioned with her free hand. “I’ve been trying to read this one’s palm for years,” she murmured to Rebecca, who was grateful for the distraction. She had a lot to digest, and not just the pies she’d purchased from their unexpected visitor.
“Thanks for the reading, Ms. Deacon, er, Towanda,” she amended as she stood. “I’ll be sure to donate to the food bank.”
***End of WWW post, but carry on to finish this sequence.***
All who entered Towanda’s tent, even those who entered unintentionally, were expected to make a generous donation to the food bank in exchange for a palm reading. And in case you weren’t aware of this tacit agreement, the neon-pink sign that hung near the entrance served as a very bright and colorful reminder. Rebecca donated often to the local food bank, but she’d ensure this week’s box was extra full.
“Wonderful! Ta-ta, darling! Best of luck!”
Rebecca waved goodbye to both women, her bag of pies clutched tightly in her fist as she exited the same way she came in. Bright beams of sunshine welcomed her back into the outdoors. She breathed in a lungful of air, the sweet smells of late summer tickling her nostrils. Or maybe that was just the pie. All the more reason to hurry home and get her eat on. She took two steps, then her feet froze in place as she picked up on the conversation drifting through the tent flaps.
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a physical education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. William Whitney is a man who’s turned his life upside down in pursuit of making a difference.
The students at Kendal High School face challenges prep school educated Will could never imagine, but his beautiful coworker Rebecca has known firsthand. Though the chemistry between them is strong, they come from vastly different backgrounds.
Rebecca is surprised to discover she and Will have more in common than she realizes. But just when she learns to trust him, Will is faced with the biggest challenge of his life. With their hearts on the line, can Will prove to Rebecca that he’s learned how to love?
