Excerpts-
  • From the book Chapter 1

    "I bet it's a stash of yarn or maybe a collection of troll dolls and bingo daubers," Carly DeCusati said.

    "Really? Your elderly neighbor leaves you something in her will and that's what you think it might be?" Jillian Braedon, Carly's best friend for life, asked her.

    More accurately, Jillian asked Carly's curvy backside as Carly was half wedged in the narrow closet in her bedroom with her trusty handheld vacuum, attempting to suck up the dust bunnies that had set up a warren in there.

    "No, not really. I have no idea what she might have left me," Carly said. "I mean Mrs. Genaro was my neighbor and I looked in on her and watched some television with her, but I didn't really know her, you know? Honestly, I can't believe she left me anything at all."

    "Maybe it's diamonds, a priceless piece of art, or-"

    "Her tea cozy collection," Mackenzie Harris interrupted Jillian.

    She was standing beside Jilly as they folded the mountain of clothes on Carly's bed in an effort to fit them into the stack of empty moving boxes they had gathered.

    "She didn't-" Emma Jameson protested but Carly interrupted.

    "Collect tea cozies? Not that I'm aware of, but I think that's a safer bet than diamonds or art."

    "Bummer," Jillian said.

    "Agreed," Carly said. She wiggled backwards, just enough to poke her head out from around the doorjamb, and turned to face her three childhood friends. She gave them a rueful glance and added, "That did not stop me, however, from spending a significant amount of time praying to the big guy that it would be enough cash to pay my rent so I can halt my move back to Bluff Point."

    "Is coming home to Maine really that bad?" Jillian asked. "You've been in Brooklyn for a long time, maybe now you'll be happier at home like Mac."

    "Mac's happy because she found a hot young veterinarian to warm up those frigid Maine winters," Carly said.

    Mackenzie turned a bright shade of red. Her summer romance with Gavin Tolliver had been the stuff of legends, or at least really good chick flicks.

    "Please, he's still my baby brother," Emma said with a frown. "Can we not use the word 'hot' when describing him?"

    "Sorry," Carly said.

    "But he is," Mac said, giving Emma side eye. "Totally hot."

    Emma rolled her eyes but she was grinning. As the only happily married one of their group, she had the matchmaker bug going big time.

    "See? You have us there, your Maine crew," Jillian said. "Coming home won't be so bad."

    Carly looked at Jillian in confusion. "I'm sorry. You've met my family, right?"

    "Yes, but-"

    "No buts, I love them dearly, but they suck the soul right out of me," Carly said. "You try being the fourth sister in a brat pack of five. It'd make the sanest person cray cray."

    "I'm an only child, so I can't really wrap my head around that. But you need to look at the bigger picture," Jilly argued. "Your company downsized and you lost your job. You can't pay your rent and all of your best friends are in Bluff Point, Maine. Clearly the universe is telling you it's time to come home. Besides, don't you want to spend more time with us?"

    Jillian tipped her head to the side in a look meant to charm and disarm. Emma and Mac stepped up beside her and mimicked her pose. They were like a trifecta of pretty, exotic, and lovely. Carly sighed. There was no way she could tell her friends the truth-that while she loved each one of...
