Why are love lives so complicated?
Right now, I'm not really seeing either. I'm at home with my pets most nights working on new fudge recipes. People write me to say I should just settle down. Choose one and be done.
I wish it were that easy. I guess I'm fickle. But I never saw myself as a part-time resident of Mackinac Island, just another owner who spends the winters somewhere else. That's what it means to choose Trent. His main residence is in Chicago and so are most of his businesses. Don't get me wrong, Trent is a catch. Minus the whole, buckets of money and parental expectations. But if I choose him, I'll have to choose between winters with him in Chicago or winters alone on the island.
So, pick Rex, right? He's smart, handsome, and is just plain great. But he's been married twice already. That sort of makes him suspicious matrimonial material. Plus I never saw myself as someone's third wife. Although they do say third time is the charm. Still, he is a police officer and if I were to be with him, then my sleuthing has to go. It already puts a strain on our friendship.
I can't ask my pets for advice. Mella, my kitty, loves Trent. Mal, my pup, loves Rex. They're no help. Maybe by not choosing I'll end up alone as I am now. What about you? Are you for Rex or for Trent? Leave a comment below and my author will send out a copy of Forever Fudge to one lucky winner. Cheers, Allie.
