Jack Faulkner passed the “Welcome to Horseshoe Crab Cove” sign and wondered if he’d made a mistake. Tired of the city, he’d volunteered to spend a few weeks, maybe longer, in the village. His job—to assess the development potential of a property in a prime location at the village’s southwest corner. Am I insane? he mused, thinking about all the work he’d left behind. I’ll go crazy trying to catch up. Is a few weeks in the country, even beautiful country like this, worth the aggravation?
He drove along Main Street eyes scanning the street for the Crab Café, where he was to meet the Lindsay Barnes, the realtor handling the Barnum property. Just as he spotted the café’s sign, he also spied two beautiful women heading into the restaurant, one slender, her companion full-figured. A heavy set guy, Jack preferred a woman with curves and this one was something! Maybe this won’t be so bad after all, he thought, parking in a lot at the end of the street.
As he entered the café he spied the two women waiting to order. Since no one had rushed up to greet him he decided to make some new friends. “Hi ladies,” he said, elbow resting on the counter as he leaned forward to address them both.
They turned as one. The slender one smiled, her blue eyes warm. “Hello.” Her raven haired companion just stared at him with the most beautiful violet eyes he’d ever seen.
“I don’t suppose either of you know Lindsay Barnes? I’m supposed to meet her here.”
The slender woman cocked her head. “End of the counter, chatting with the waitress. You must be new in town. I’m Lucy Morgan and this is my friend Lolly Rogers.”
He grinned, extending his hand. “Jack Faulkner.” They both shook his hand, but the electricity switched on when he and Ms. Rogers touched. Hmm…
At that moment a petite blonde in a red business suit, crisp white blouse and five inch heels stepped between Jack and the two women. “Mr. Faulkner?”
“Lindsay Barnes. Welcome to Horseshoe Crab Cove.”
“Hello. Thanks for meeting me Ms. Barnes,” he said, extending his hand. Even with her heels, he towered over her. Early forties, he guessed. Her pixie haircut suited her, the gobs of make-up not so much. “These kind ladies had just pointed you out.”
“Hey gals,” she said, giving Lucy and Lolly a quick glance before returning her green eyes to the handsome newcomer. “I see you’ve met our booksellers, two of the town’s most successful business women.”
Lolly guffawed. “Hardly.”
Jack turned to her. “Oh? Where’s your bookshop. I’d like to stop in and grab some reading material for my visit.” The woman has the most amazing eyes. Liz Taylor had nothing on Lolly Rogers.
