This weekend I submitted the next story in my Holidays in Lake Point series. Eve’s New Year. Just like Santa, Maybe, this one surprised me in so many ways. I so enjoyed getting to know Eve and Jake it was tough to let them go…and I was only able to because I know they’ll continue appearing in other stories as side characters.
So without further ado, please meet Eve and her best friend (or is he?), Jake:
“Where are they?” She grasped along the bottom of her purse, until the force of her own reaching hand shoved the purse to the ground. “Damn it.”
“Easy, babe.” He hugged her and kissed her temple. “Breathe.”
“Sorry.” She closed her eyes and leaned into his shoulder. “She’s not even bad yet.”
“No, but I heard what you said. We just have to hope that she forgets for a while longer. That her preparations are distraction enough. Okay?”
“That’s my girl.”
