The best decision they’ll ever make…
Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she’s meant to play: a counselor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women’s shelter in Santa Raquel.
Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah “Jem” Bridges to rescue a little boy. She’s not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don’t always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.
JEM COULDN’T BELIEVE his eyes when he pulled into Uncle Bob’s on Saturday, glanced toward the beach and saw Lacey Hamilton in double. In both forms his fantasies had taken. One was drably overdressed, and the other rather undressed. He skipped over the version with long, tanned legs exposed, and stared at the one with loose black cotton shorts that hung to her knees.
He much preferred taking his time to unwrap his own package, not have it arrive out of the wrapping. He’d always been weird that way.
But her hair…it was the first time he’d seen those blond locks down in real life. It fell almost to her waist and he…
“Come on, Dad!” Levi’s little feet kicked the back of his seat and he heard his son unfasten the belt in his car seat. “We haveta eat.”
They were a little late for lunch. He’d taken Levi to work with him as he always did on Saturday morning and had been occupied much longer than planned getting through the list of problems his foremen had planted on him during their weekly meeting. Nothing he couldn’t handle, though. A straight driveway that was now going to be curved. Some wiring that had blown when a drywall screw had missed a stud. Windows that didn’t fit. And roof tile that had been delivered in black rather than the rust brown the customer had ordered.
Keys in hand he got out of the truck, opened the backseat door to help Levi down and watched surreptitiously as the two women made their way slowly toward the beach parking lot that was adjacent to Uncle Bob’s.
He wasn’t going to call out to her. He didn’t ever want to see her again.
