More Than Words
A Hale Street Novella
Roxanne Giardini’s greatest life achievement is writing a cat food jingle. She yearns to do more with her life, but it isn’t until she tours an old recording studio that she develops a plan for her future. The building is destined to become a pile of rubble and Roxie has only weeks to save it. Fine-tuning her strategy turns out to be easier than ignoring the man working against her- the tall, handsome financial planner who makes her want to write love songs rather than business proposals.
Will Darden deals in facts and numbers. He’s used to being the voice of reason in Hale Street’s choir of dreamers, and the hard truth is the old recording studio has to go. His proposal is solid, every detail double-checked. Then a lyricist with a stubborn streak as wide as the blue strip in her hair makes it her mission to save the crumbling wreck and detonates his perfect plan. But her effect on him is what really shakes his foundation.
When the dreamer and the realist fight for the future of the old recording studio, will they be able to come up with anything More Than Words?
