Blurb:
If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week
Year by year his grandson’s bitterness increased, a process he felt powerless to stop.

Dan nodded his head toward the plate of bread on the table. “Pass me another biscuit, please.”

Jeb picked up the plate and held it out to Dan. As Dan reached for the biscuit, Jeb exclaimed, “Don’t you have a better shirt than that to wear? It’s paper thin, and the cuff is threadbare.”

Dan laughed. “I didn’t expect a commentary on my work attire. It’s a work shirt. It’s fine to wear in the barn.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.

Totally charming. Love the conversation. She is a tough one.

Not sure where this conversation is going but it does show us the relationship between the two men and a bit about each character, and there are a lot of mundane discussions like this in daily life for sure,so...well done snippet!

A parent's (or grandparent's) job is never done. Is Dan's response rebellion at the helplessness of their situation? He has too much respect for his grandfather for it to be otherwise. Nice scene.

His feelings about clothes show how you've managed to immerse yourself in the male POV.

This is a great insight into Dan’s character and the warmth of the relationship with his grandfather!

Amy Braun said...

Great insight to their relationship!

Taking care of yourself isn't a waste of money. Sad that he feels it is!

Grouchy grandpa and concerned grandson. Great relationship revealed. Grandpa probably grew up with parents who survived the Great Depression and taught "waste not, want not." And grandson needs to provide.
