Acknowledgments

Thanks to my writing world: Esi, Claire, Alex, and Jill. You all (and a lot more behind the scenes) help to bring my stories to life. Even the crazy ones.

Chapter 1

Brightly colored paper fall leaves and gauze ghosts hung in the air on thin wires all around Coffee, Books, and More. I’d hit my head on more than one low-hanging happy ghoul since Sasha and Aunt Jackie had decorated for tomorrow’s Halloween party. Of course, we’d had some seasonal decorations up since the calendar had turned from September to October, but now my bookstore/coffee shop looked like the Great Pumpkin had arrived a few days too early.

I’m Jill Gardner and I’m the owner of the only bookstore in South Cove, California. I’d say the only coffee shop too, but some of the old-timers and farmers still go to Diamond Lille’s to drink her coffee and gossip. Which is fine with me. I don’t need a group hanging around in the morning asking for free refills and interrupting my time. You see, the morning shift is mine, and after the commuters leave, I get a lot of reading done. I call it research. My aunt calls it being lazy.

I had the weekend off—as soon as I could finish up the list of tasks my aunt had given me to help prepare for the kids’ party we were hosting on Saturday. All the stores were having all-day trick or treating, but the day ended at our bookstore where we had several spooky readings scheduled along with other fun activities for the local children.

And you’re sure we have enough apples for the bobbing tub? My aunt glanced at the bags of groceries I’d brought in from my trip to Bakerstown. I’d almost emptied their candy shelves and had bought as many small apples as I could find. Sasha was still bringing in gallons of apple cider for the party.

If we don’t, it’s too late now. I moved the bags closer to the tile floor where we’d set up the station. Besides, we didn’t have that many kids come by last year. We should be good.

All of Olivia’s classmates are coming with their parents. The day care sent home Darla’s promotional flyer with the kids. They think it’s a great alternative for trick or treating. Olivia’s so looking forward to wearing her fairy princess costume. You’re going to miss a great party. Sasha set four gallons of cider on the counter. Your car is empty. I’m leaving these here for a bit because I have to make room in the walk-in. It’s full.

Sadie already dropped off the treats? I felt disappointed. I’d hoped to see my friend when she stopped in. Between her baking schedule for Pies on the Fly and my work schedule, we hadn’t even seen each other, much less had time for coffee and chat, for over a month.

About an hour ago. She said for you to give her a call on Monday. Aunt Jackie grabbed the list of to-dos from my hand. Looks like you’re done. And just in time too.

I started to ask her what she’d meant, but then I saw Greg coming into the shop. Greg King was the police detective for South Cove and my boyfriend. A smile curved his full and totally kissable lips as he saw me watching his approach.
