It figures . . .
I went my whole adult life with a crush on Cashel Morgan. Since before we both graduated from Mudville Highâ€”Go, Hogs! But I never got out of the friend zone with him. Until now. A decade after graduation.
And why is Cash interested in something more now when he never was before? Thatâ€™s the most annoying, frustrating, exasperating, ridiculous part. Itâ€™s all because another guy asked me out.
No doubt about it, Cash Morgan is going to drive me insane, if Iâ€™m not already there. Because in the middle of my personal drama in what was formerly a non-existent love life, is the fact something wonky is happening at my store. Things going missing. Things being moved.
My friend Harper thinks itâ€™s a ghost. Our friend Bethany thinks Iâ€™m just forgetful.
Iâ€™m not sure what I thinkâ€”about any of it. The strange happenings in my shop. My date with the hot deputy investigating the oddities in my store. And especially not Cash.
All I know is that with all the craziness thatâ€™s happened around Mudville over the past six months, starting with Harper moving to town and her discovery of all the townâ€™s secrets stashed in Agnesâ€™s attic, we had better start to expect the unexpected.
RED HOT is a laugh-out-loud romp through the small town of Mudville featuring a love triangle one overworked shopkeeper never expected or wanted, a middle sibling who discovers he might possibly love someone else more than he loves himself, a mystery involving a very coveted missing cape, an estate sale full of clues, a surprise strangerâ€”or twoâ€”who no one saw coming, more of the quirky Mudville characters youâ€™ve come to love, and some of the most adorable baby animals ever!
