Sweet Corn for Just Desserts

August 4th, 2014

Musings

There’s nothing like cobs of sweet corn drenched in butter and glistening with chunks of rock salt. At Ms. Katie’s Diner it’s a dish that’s almost better than dessert, but not quite!

Sadie buys the corn she serves at the diner from her good friend Lindy Parker. Lindy runs an organic farm with exceptional standards. Lindy’s corn must be knee high by the 4th of July.

Barely 24-years-old Lindy has been CEO of her  family’s farm since a teen and has learned to take zero gruff from anyone in the farming business or in life.  Which  includes her oldest and dearest friend, Sadie. Lindy’s protective. Sadie’s the big sister that Lindy never had and Kate Maxon was like another mom to her. Lindy and Kate shared the same passion for food. 

When Quinn Laughton and his devilish good looks start to make the moves on Sadie, there’s a chance that Lindy might have to interrupt. Quinn has a bad reputation. Lindy’s boyfriend, Eddie, has been working with Quinn rehabbing one of the Lake Geneva mansions. Eddie knows many stories about the dude from Chicago.  

Quinn will have to survive Lindy’s test. And with her high standards, he’ll have to pass before he can get any closer to Sadie…

“Your loyalty’s admirable.” Quinn said to Lindy. “Don’t worry. I have no intentions of getting near Sadie.”

Lindy snorted. “Liar, liar pants on fire.”

Quinn’s brain scoffed at his bald-faced lie. He still smelled raspberries and wanted to kiss Sadie, again.

Lindy patted him on his cheek and spun around on the heel of her garden Croc. “Eddie or I will come find you Quinn. Sadie is our town’s valedictorian. Anyone who messes with her will ride out of Lake Geneva on the end of a pitchfork.”
