Waiting for a View
First book in the
Bloomfield Series with authors Debby Mayne, Gail Sattler, Kathi Macias, and Martha Rogers
Garden Club vice-president Shirley Butler has never moved out of her family home, and she still works at the same card shop where she started her first job after high school. She is so resistant to change, in fact, that she never married Theo, the only man she ever loved. Her dad was an alcoholic, and her mother worked herself to death trying to keep the family from crumbling, so she felt that she had a right to be reluctant to jump into anything. After years of trying to convince her to marry him, Theo finally moved away and married someone else, leaving Shirley wading around in the aftermath of what might have been.
Brad Henderson, one of the guys she went to school with asks her out, but she turns him down, thinking it wouldn’t be fair to him since it would obviously be a rebound for her. He says he’s always wanted to get to know her better, and she needs to at least give him a chance.
With all that emotional baggage, will these two stubborn people ever get together? Well, if Naomi McCord, Murray the parrot, and the rest of the Bloomfield Garden Club members have anything to do about it they will.
