Everyone in Cranberry Cove had me pegged as a confirmed bachelor. The identical twin VanVelsen sisters who run Gumdrops were always trying to trick me into revealing something about my love life. Sadly my love life just wasn’t worth talking about.
I was fairly content running Book ‘Em—a new and used bookstore where I specialize in mysteries. There are many mystery writers I enjoy reading, but my favorites are the grand dames of the Golden Age—Ngaio Marsh, Dorothy Sayers, Patricia Wentworth and, of course, Agatha Christie.
So it was quite a surprise when Monica Albertson showed up in my life. I thought she was attractive—tall and slim with auburn curls—but she’s also level-headed and practical—two qualities that don’t always go hand-in-hand with good looks.
We hit it off right away—bonding over our love of mysteries—both in books and a couple of them right here in Cranberry Cove.
I never thought I’d get married again, but now I’m getting “hitched” as Bart who owns the butcher shop down the street would say.
And you’re invited to our wedding. It’s a simple affair at the Cranberry Cove Yacht Club but we hope you’ll come. It’s taking place in Berried at Sea which will be available on Amazon by the end of the month!
Is there a love in your life? How did you meet?
