A Corsair’s Cove Companion short story
It’s springtime in Corsair’s Cove, when trees bloom, tourists arrive and spirits get lively.
But for Betsy Lund of Three Sheets Fabric Shop, this year it’s not a happy season. She misses her beloved business partner. Someone – or something – is using her quilting machines when she’s not around. And she can hardly get out of her own yard because her hedge is growing weirdly fast; she’s wearing out hedgetrimmers at an uncanny rate.
Orchardist Stan Redfern would love to do more than sharpen Betsy’s blades but his shy invitations are getting him nowhere.
Betsy isn’t even sure that romance is what Stan’s offering; her mojo eloped so long ago she can’t remember what it looked like.
When her hedgetrimmer gives up the ghost, she’s literally stuck, and Betsy has no illusions, or desire, that Prince Charming is going to ride up and save her.
What’s a self-rescuing middle-aged princess to do?
