Author: Jane Drager

Genre: Short Story - Romance

Book Blurb:

Grace O'Dell isn't in the mood to smile. Her mom is dying, her bank account is depleted, and come Labor Day she could lose her job. Mentally and physically tired, she wonders if she will ever be able to have her dream love.

Joe McGann's mission is to make the beautiful woman he spies smile. She looks so sad, and something about her tugs at his heart. He knows a banana split is a great way to break the ice. But convincing her to accept his invitation could take an act of divine intervention.


Then, the familiar tingle from the ice cream shop returned. He looked to his right and saw her on the promenade about thirty feet away, watching him. She clutched her purse strap like the bag would jump off her shoulder and run away. But man-o-man, seeing her, he barely contained a runaway heart. She had that effect, and he liked the feeling. She wore the same clothes, too, but he doubted her uniform deviated. Jumping to his feet, he removed his glasses. “I was afraid you wouldn’t come.”

Slipping the sunglasses from her nose, she meandered toward him. “I can’t believe you did.”

Then, a slow smile stretched her luscious lips. Her teeth were brighter than the sun, and he blinked. As she stood before him, he wasn’t sure what to do next—hug her, kiss her, or sigh like an idiot. Instead, he wiped his moist palms along his shorts. “Want to stroll on the beach?”

“We need beach tags. Unless it’s after five o’clock.”

He cocked a brow. “A what?”

“Beach tags. Some towns call them badges or passes, but Cape May calls them tags. Either way, it’s a fee to use the beach.”

Rats. A glitch he hadn’t anticipated.

Author Biography:

Writing a cross between Romantic Suspense and Cozy Mystery, Jane Drager follows one cardinal rule—weakness is not an option. Her heroines are strong-willed, independent, and comfortable in their own skin. Throw them into a mystery, add a man to get hormones jumping, and watch the fireworks fly.

Jane likes to keep the sex scenes to a minimum, focusing instead on the mystery that draws the two main characters together. Every novel has a happily-ever-after or a happy-for-now ending because—let's face it—the world is full of stress, and books are a great way to relax.
