So very excited to have another story by Whitney!
The Event (The Creek Water Series Book 1) by Whitney Dineen released last Friday in the Adult, Contemporary genre.
There’s a reason Emmeline Frothingham left her hometown of Creek Water, Missouri as soon as humanly possible. That reason is small-minded, judgmental people who wouldn’t know the truth if it was coughed up on them like an errant furball.
After graduating from college, Emmie gets her dream job in New York City. As the head buyer at Silver Spoons–a high-end boutique, and single girl about town, her life is ideal. That is, until the night of The Event, her company’s annual award’s ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nerves plus too much tequila leave Emmie dealing with a wicked hangover, the unemployment line, and a surprise to end all surprises.
Facing the repercussions of her wild night, Emmie is forced to go home to work in her family’s business. But her return puts her dead in the sights of the gossipy country club harpies who drove her away in the first place.
Will Emmie make peace with her past and embrace the love of her family? Will she discover that the man who seems to be judging her most has a secret of his own? Find out in this deliciously fun romantic comedy, sure to put a smile on your face!
When he gets about halfway to the door, Zach comes back again. “One more thing …” he says.
“Yes?” I stare at him expectantly.
“I’m sorry if I disrespected you in any way at the club yesterday. You know, in the locker room?”
Oh, my god, we’re going to talk about it? I thought I’d either imagined it or we’d decided by some unspoken agreement to pretend it never happened. “You mean when you helped me with my buttons?” I try to steer the conversation into safe territory.
“I never helped you with your buttons,” he says, taking another step closer to me.
“Well, you were going to before Cootie came in.” I unsuccessfully try to swallow down a basketball-sized lump forming in my throat.
He leans in and whispers, “I was going to do something before Cootie came in …” Then he sniffs the side of my hair and I have to reach out and hold onto his arms to keep my knees from giving out on me.
Spontaneous combustion is a thing, right? ’Cause right now my body is so hot, I’m pretty sure I could light a match. We’re standing there, in what can only be construed as some kind of lovers’ embrace, when Zach says, “I’ll see you tonight.” And he turns and walks away for good this time.
