Why are love lives so complicated?

Give me a good murder mystery any day. I'm on it. Bad guys beware. But when I'm asked, "Allie, are you ever going to resolve your feelings for Rex and Trent?" I go silent.

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.

  1. Oh my, there are good things with both choices! Living only part-time on the island, what would happen to the shop? And the move back and forth? That seems like it would get very overwhelming very quick.
    To stay right where you are would mean you could have a great guy in Rex. Third time is a charm! If I had to choose, I would stay on the island and if things worked out with Rex, then it was meant to be.

  2. I’m not a city person so I’d choose the island.

  3. What a choice to have!I see that Mal and Mella can't agree either. I think relocating for part of the year would get old real quick. I would probably stay on the island and let things develop on their own. Something will happen and you will know which one it's meant to be.

  4. I'd pick Trent. I wouldn't like the idea of being wife #3. dbahn@iw.net

  5. Tough choice. I think I'll go with Rex. I bet you'd still be able to get away with some sleuthing. turtle6422(at)gmail(dot)com

  12. Definitely Rex! Besides not being able to tolerate the bitterly cold winters in Chicago, it's not money that makes you happy. So what if he's been married before. You know men, they act and then think later at times. Figure he jumped the gun before he met his perfect match. How can you go wrong with smart and handsome? On top of that, I'm more of a pooch person so I'd just have to agree with Mal. :)
