Excerpt:

“That’s it. We aren’t going to let gossip keep us apart, not anymore.” Christina slapped her hand on the table. “In fact, let’s come up with a name. It’ll be like our little club then. We could do jackets.”

“Have you lost your mind?” Macy drawled. “Let’s start small. Dinner. A successful dinner.” She pointed at Winter. “This girl is half a second from bailing on us, and we haven’t even eaten our burgers yet. Let’s make it through one night.”

Christina rolled her eyes. “Fine. You want to start small, we’ll start small.”

Something about her exasperation amused Winter. She wasn’t alone. Finally, their booth’s atmosphere was closer to party than interview going badly. How long had it been since she had giggled like that?

When everyone turned to look at her again, Winter said, “You guys would be off to a better start without me. I’m not in the mood to party lately. I should get my burger to go.”

Before she could stand, Macy grabbed her hand and held tight. “You are staying. You’re eating. And if you want to talk about everything that has gone wrong or could go wrong or will go wrong or how you’re going to conquer the world next, we are here to listen to it. You may have been too cool for all this before, but I am not. I want to be able to call someone when I need to talk about things. This is why we need to get together. With the single ladies of Sweetwater.” She shook her finger at Christina. “That is not the name of our group.”

Excerpt: 

Macy picked up her phone to text Ash an update. Reporters at the front door. Where are you?

She chewed the tip of her fingernail as she waited. Texting was Ash’s preferred mode of communication. Even in person, he spoke as few words as possible.

After what seemed like a lifetime, but must have been all of three seconds, Ash answered. Keep telling them: no comment. Brett is on the way. My orders are to avoid the press and the ranger station for now, but he’s close.

Macy considered a few different answers but settled on encouraging. We can handle the reporters. This will blow over.

When he didn’t immediately answer, Macy wished she’d erased the last line of the text before she’d hit send.

Eventually, Ash answered. You can handle anything, Gentry, but I don’t want you to have to do it alone.

Macy clasped a hand over her stomach as a weird twist settled there. Ash was confident in her ability as always. His concern for her was sweet, different from his normal stoic self.

Excerpt:

“Okay, Dara let us down. We wanted something practical, a useful ranking of the important question of which Chris reigns as king.” Odette shot Dara a mean side-eye. “Ren, you’ve traveled the world. London gentlemen have something extra on Americans, right? The accent is an instant winner. In all the Chrises in the world, the top of the list would have an accent. Agree with me.”

Ren met her stare in the mirror. “Well, let me consider the question.” Knitting recommenced, but every eye in the shop was locked on Ren. “The accent is nice. Beautiful blue eyes will stop traffic, no doubt. A sense of humor and the social conscience to use your platform for good, exactly like a superhero would, those come straight from a good heart.” Ren tipped her head to the side. “Haven’t I seen several of them with dogs, too? Who doesn’t love a guy who commands the affection of man’s best friend? That’s even better than flying or throwing a big hammer.”

“She’s going to go with a good heart, too,” Prudence muttered with disgust. “What is with the youth these days? We’re not marrying them, just rating them from best to worst.”

“I’m not sure you should be rating them at all, ladies. How would you feel if this was the hottest…knitter in the world? What if there’s a similar conversation going on over at Kringle Kuts, all centered on which actress is the better because of her beauty?” Surely that would change the conversation. Beth shook her head as she fluffed Ren’s bob. “While you’re thinking, what are we doing today?”

“Very mature of you, Beth. Liberated. Equalitarian.” Ren waved her hand. “Just a trim. Dara wanted a kicky color for Christmas. I need these bangs out of my face.” Then she glanced over her shoulder at the ladies grouped in front of the window. “I’ve given it some thought. All things considered, in a group of handsome men with good hearts and smarts…” She smiled slowly. “It’s all about the forearms. My husband, also named Chris…” She nodded. “All those, minus the accent, but when I watch him hard at work, those forearms flashing, I have to stop. Appreciate.”

If Dara’s answer had dismayed them, this sent the Knotty Elves into revolt. “Arms? What did she say? Chris, the guy who runs the pet store, is at the top of the Chris pyramid? What?”

Odette studied Ren over her reading glasses. “Well, that can’t be anything but love talking, ladies. And good for her.”
