A Day in the Life Devereaux Sinclair by Denise Swanson
Hi! Dev here.
I’m not much for holidays. Since it was just Gran and me for so many years, we tended to mostly ignore the hoopla between November 1 and January 1. Yes, we ate turkey and had a Christmas tree, but that was about it.
However since I opened Devereaux’s Dime Store and Gift Baskets, I am now a part of the retail nation and am forced to acknowledge the holiday season. Still, I’m not ready to celebrate multiple times, which comes with the territory when you’re dating two guys. At least, Jake and his Uncle Tony came to our house, but I was forced to accompany Noah to dinner with his mother. An experience, I won’t soon forget.
Anyway Thanksgiving is over and it’s now Christmas full steam ahead. Dad and Jake shook off their turkey stupor and helped me transform the dime store from a fall festival into a winter wonderland.
There hasn’t been any snow yet, which isn’t unusual for our part of Missouri. But the temperatures are dropping so we could have a white Christmas. And that’s fine with me as long as it snow Christmas Eve and melts on December 26.
Truth be told, now that my father is back with us, I do feel a bit more festive than previously. But I do have one big worry. I’m afraid either Jake or Noah or both will have a tiny velvet box under the tree for me, which means I sure as shooting better make up my mind between them ASAP.
You can read more about Dev in Between a Book and a Hard Place, the fifth book in the Devereaux’s Dime Store a humorous romantic mystery series.
Denise also writes the Scumble River mysteries, the Change of Heart romances, the Delicious Love romances.
